Reminds me of a CED buyer that came onto the market just when i had some CEDs to sell about 6 years ago.

Only negative feedback i ever received from ebay over the past 14 years was from 1 CED.

Guy would pull the, it doesn't play can i get a partial refund deal, super major scammer and cursed all over the place.
Really hate this type of stuff from new collectors, we need new collectors but they do need to know the limits of LD and the available stock.

I know that most of us still miss Disclord/Ty and his knowledge, he forgot more than we will ever know.

But one thing has been on my mind recently, what ever happened to his collection.
I know he had a lot of players, once he posted a picture with what looked like over 15-20 players.
He had some other rare discs and while I can't remember how many he had I wouldn't be shocked to find out he had over 5000 discs.

So back to the title which sums it all up. Did anybody get his collection, or is it out there with non LD lovers :think:

I just want to post who this is in case we didn't do this earlier.

Ebay ID: theultimateshoppingcenter

This is a massive situation and he is trying to keep the player from this scam, I know how this one works, someone tried this with me years ago.
The LD market is very small and he shouldn't be pulling this type of thing.

I really wonder if he is on LDDB, if he is he should be removed as this is a massive scam.

Like above.
I sometimes have to take stuff into different rooms to get more or less glare.
This is an experiment and its not like we can control the sun or light bulbs giving off the glare and say HEY LIGHT STOP THAT.

Oops, that was a typo.
Can't LOL

But it was sort of a joke, how can we be in the day and age that we are in and not figure out how to take a good picture.
All you need is to spend 20 minutes and you can pretty much figure it out, or maybe not :crazy:

I have seen this on bootleg DVDs that are actually PAL but transferred improperly to NTSC.

So it could be something like that?? try removing the device like invenio says and see what happens.

Any format has issues from the people involved in transfers.

I agree with Kurtis, Substance and others who have posted great points.

Right now we are dealing with the super tail end of the death of Laserdisc and we have to consider what the best players are but also what are the best "working" players.

Someone who has a working S201 will beat any broken X0 player period.

We have to figure out that we are no longer in a day of CRT domination and in a day of no more parts.
When considering to buy a player for 1500 dollars, yen or even euro you must understand that the lifespan of that player is going to be very limited at best.

And my comments above were about using S-Video on a CRT and both being top of the line TV and player.
Now if I had to use composite I would take a 95 over an R7G as the R7G would be just like a super fast flipping version of a lower model player using yellow video composite.

For my setup now I have older players that I personally am happy with, are the top of the line, for back in the day they were top or top 4 but now they are not.

Anybody that is willing to spend the crazy money on players or discs I want to thank you as you may one day buy some of my discs when I cycle through them :D

R7G has a different ring on the spindle and won't slip.
Made out of a white material rather than the black ring.

WOW I must have not really been into anime when I was younger, or I really didn't care about this title.
Never really heard of it, name is familiar but who kind of cares.

Eyes are just too much in a bad way, why did they have to do that.

I remember a time when I used to like movies.....

While I have little experience with GM discs, I have had some and there is a lot of info out there to give you an idea that you can play them on regular players but
they will play slightly differently than regular LDs.

Also if you are skipping and repeating then I would say it could be that scratch as discs play from the inside out, and also there could be some other type of dirt on your disc.

Older DV discs do have some trouble playing on all players, so it could be perfect in another player.

I'm still unpacking, once I find that orguss I'll try to post a picture.
The sleeve is very thin, much thinner than the US sleeves.

Very sad to hear.
I know that Laserbite did have the heart attack mini stroke.
Its sad to hear as like you have posted above about his information that he knew about home theater etc. but there was a lot of litter posts.

While I do feel that some of the new topics were a little our there, I also feel that a lot of the same topics from the newer crowd are very aggravating asking a lot
of the same questions over and over again.

There is no justification if LB went over the deep end but hopefully he will get back on track.

Rein-o is correct. I was referring to the Criterion Collection and specifically the CAV release: Blade Runner: Special Edition #19 (1982) (Uncut) [CC1120L]

Definitely a must own.

I will have to go back and watch the scene more closely to see what you mean.
Since you have the CAV still step it and you will notice, its pretty weird that so many have picked apart that film but to my knowledge nobody has ever mentioned it before.

I only ever bought the CLV but when it was new and I think it cost a mini fortune then, about 50 bucks if I remember correctly.
But it was the only way to get it in widescreen and I remember my father reading reviews about it before we bought our LD player
and they were amazed at how you could actually see the rain drops compared to the VHS where they said it was all blur in the review.

Well, if you need something like this to be spelled out to you then you are in the wrong collecting hobby.
Good luck with your collections of cheap stuff :thumbup:

Cut in wages and so on.



Tell me about it brother, it's the decline of the Western World. I'm still in debt for $40,000 for my uni when I was 20 at 40 years old, my wage still barely breaks the average for a fresh graduate.

My Dad got free uni, a job for life, a cheap entry to the housing market. Money for golf and toys and supporting a family on one wage. I can't afford a car let alone a family. Literally didn't earn enough for my girlfriends parents so she left me. Her family were gonna disown her and they were too important to her. I told her I didn't want her to give up her whole family for me and it wasn't that hard to convince her, secretly she thought I was a loser too I think

If you own a house or are paying it off and don't have to deal with the stress and cost to move all your laserdiscs and other stuff every few years be very very grateful, hang on to it, never lose it. You don't know how fortunate you are..

I can't agree more with this.
Good luck and hang in there.

Sorry to say there is a lot of great info when doing a google search on these models.
Any working player at this point is the best player you can own.

So is there any site with the part numbers needed for the R7G?

I picked up bands/sheets but want to grab a psu and spindle motor and maybe a pickup.

It looks like ldservice page is gone.
What are bands/sheets????

Since you are in Japan your best bet is to try and contact Pioneer and see what they still have.

Someone else will chime in as to what part numbers are what.

I just want to add a disclaimer here for all.

Yeah, your best bet is to try your hand at using a multi meter and make sure you are getting the correct voltage, I would even check to make sure the
fuses are correct.
But that's even the extent of my knowledge, and you are doing whatever at your own risk.

You didn't get the one on ebay that was listed as a project did you???

Haven't had that issue, but I did have a funny one today.
Sold a book for 4 bucks and the buyer didn't see that I didn't offer free shipping, he then asked me to just ship it for 3.99 and offer free shipping since he could have bought this same book from other sellers who offer free shipping.

:eh:

I told him that I was not Walmart and I couldn't offer free shipping as it would cost me the same price as I sold the book.

While it's not my disc or taste I'm glad to see that people are still buying stuff and enjoying their collections of LDs and not just processors or decoding the image for an odd hobby.
