    Please do not laugh!:eek:

    I have a three year old DVD player that is badged 'Trend' and it has been and still is fully functional - it was £99 when I bought it so not exactly top quality but it serves the purpose so to speak and has a software hack for MR.

    My wife suggested getting a Karaoke machine for our 9 year old daughter and I said hang on a mo, got out the manual and yip sure enough it supported Karaoke and has two controllable microphone inputs at the front.

    So a few quid later I have a Karaoke DVD and a pair of microphones. Yesterday evening was the first real opportunity to test while girly was at the school disco - so I set it up.

    EEEKKK! - :confused nothing at all. The Karaoke DVD works fine but nothing from the microphones at all. On examining the manual in greater detail it appears that the settings for Karaoke are contained on one of three screens that appear when you press 'effects' on the remote control ( Karaoke, 2.1, 5.1) unfortunately my player only displays 2 of the 3 screens shown in the manual and guess which one ain't showing -------------yip Karaoke!:mad:

    I would appreciate any advice are there any hacks I can do to this machine (which is probably just a badged standard cheapo) or do I have to admit defeat and buy another. If so what would the forum recommend as suitable bearing in mind it needs the Karaoke feature.;)

    Thank you for your patience.

    Its only a guess, but the Karaoke facility may have been disabled or not made funcional for costing reasons.
