    I found that ealier but it was really slow in loading. It's quicker now.
    I think I know what I need to now.


    Cheers

    You can also try to find a Pioneer CLD-925 laserdisc only player. This is the best ld player ever made for the European market.

    I've got a CLD 310 now, for close to nowt. I was looking at a potential 919 because I only have a Denon DVD 2000, which is a 1st generation player with no dts etc. Still plays all discs mind.:smashin:

    If I understand you correctly you want to play dts dvd's in the first place? Buy a dvd only player. Even the cheapest ones can play dts. If you can lay your hands on either a 919 or a 925 use it only for ld playback. They are both so much better than the 310. I had a CLD-515 and than upgraded to a 925. Differences are day and night.

    It also depends on how many years you are planning to play Ld's. I myself will be playing ld's for years to come.

    I have a couple only, it's more for novelty/tinkering value to be honest. Summit else to add to the stack next to me.

    I think the 310 was £35.

    In that case you should definately buy a standalone dvd player. There are some good players at this moment who offer great value for money like Philips 963SA, Marantz 4300, Harman Kardon DVD-25, Pioneer 656 etc.

    I'm not really in need of a player at the moment though. I use TheaterTek 1.5 on my PC, so I've got some time until the summer to get a reasonable player.

    Cheers anyhoo.:smashin:

    If you can get hold of an LD only player, I recommend it. The quality is much better, the mech is more robust etc... Even if it was a multi format player, I'd be loath to "waste" my LD's precious lifepan on playing DVDs anyway. LDs are known to break down more often that they should.
