    Can anyone tell me of a DVD player capable of playing CD+G (Karaoke) discs as well as DVD CDR and all the norms?

    Your in luck as there is another sad person out here who knows the answer.

    First off avoid all cheap decks based on computer drives - usually from China. These strip off the CDG stream. Usually the PCM data is there but without the subchannel data.

    I have tried the Cyberchrome and an LG from Richer sounds and they do not work. The first, BTY is useless at playing VCD's

    Go for the Pioneer DV-343 or 340. Graphics code is in good shape and it reads CDRs CDRWs and unfinalized disks. It is also a good well known make!

    Richer sound advertise a region 2 for £119 - but it's never in stock! (It's just to get your attention) You can get the all region model for £149 . Output is coax.

    Happy singing

    Reads "unfinalized discs", i very much doubt it, as these discs do not have any TOC (Table of Contents) on them!!

    Only CD-R machines are able to do this.

    The wonders of technology!

    It says on their website it can play unfinalised
    Not tried it myself!

    Twin wave Laser Pickup- separate laser diodes optimised for DVD and CD, with CD-R/RW playback (also plays un-finalised CD-R's)

    See www.pioneer.co.uk
