A few years ago, I found this link for info on LD and bookmarked it: http://www.pvv.ntnu.no/~sao/movie_page/ld.html

Which lead me to: http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Contrib/EuropeLD/PALldFAQ.html which is now gone.

I was able to find a snapshot of the data from 2010 at: https://web.archive.org/web/20101206010523/http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Contrib/EuropeLD/PALldFAQ.html

maybe this information should be preserved at lddb somewhere?

I connected with a seller in Germany and have a player on the way. Thanks all!

I've never been happy with LD or VHS on modern displays. Thankfully, I've got an HD CRT in reserve.


A little off topic, but I have an LG OLED55E7P 55" TV that laserdiscs look really good on at my typical viewing distance (it's in the bedroom, so maybe 10 feet away?). Even just plugging into the composite, it has a great comb filter. I wish there was a way to capture it. Unfortunately, i don't often watch LDs in the bedroom.

I had DVHS/Dtheater, but sold them all when i got HDVDD (and later bluray) because they were only 1080i and took up more space. I can't remember, could you fast forward past the FBI warnings and previews on Dtheater? If so, then I put DVHS at the #1 spot! I recently threw in a bluray that had 6 mandatory previews before i could watch the movie, it did irritate me immensely.

When i switched from LD to DVD, i only had a 27" crt. The Signal to noise ratio was much better with DVD, and my screen was too small to see the compression, digitization artifacts, and Edge Enhancement. Now all those things are just gross.
