I'm sure if it worked it would play CLV and CAV but I don't believe any are actually working.

Good luck getting one.

The problem is there isn't known to be one fully working one in existence. :( And even if there were shipping it to Japan might damage it.

Later production ones were less bad and I think I've seen one video of one *sort of* working but not properly.

If it works. It rarely even survived the shipping from factory to stores to home, so even if you found one that works, it would probably cease to be that way once it reached you.

That LD-1000 you've got really should be good enough.

I'm very pleased with my Duo for VHS, LD and DVD. Though mostly I still watch older content on an HD CRT. Duo is in my bedroom, and it can be nice to watch a light movie before going to bed.

Well looking at the laserdiscarchive page, you could probably sort of watch a movie on it...provided it's in CAV and has analog audio. And you hook it up to a computer. Or have the service remote and good luck finding one of those .

Apparently there is a Japanese variant, LD-V1001. Pretty sure LaserActive is it's own thing entirely and won't work with anything except the CLD-A100.

In other words...unless you plan on building an arcade cabinet with a control board to play Dragon's Lair and it's ilk on the original hardware, you'll be better off buying something else.

You need to see if your TV has a 4.3 setting and adjust for that.
The video is 4.3 even if widescreen and will look distorted unless you zoom or change to 4.3
You have 16x9 or close to 1.85 TV now.

If your TV doesn't have any 4.3 setting you will need to live with this until you get some other TV or device.

My TV has a similar setting, I can't remember what it is called. But the image in the center is fine, outer edges are pulled to fit the screen.

For Laserdiscs/CDV i have those hooked up to my

normal CRT but can take up to 1080i signals 50 or 60 Hz via Component or HDMI input
Yes, i still find it very nice for watching movies. The TV is the best of both worlds digital and analogue sources for me.
Only fine text is sometimes not good readable.

For digital sources i sometimes use my PC monitor as it can display passive 3D

1080P 60Hz 3D
Fine, but irregular lit backlight and pungy blue output because of IPS panel that has 'white' leds placed at the edges as backlight.
For movies i still prefer CRT as it looks more natural and gives more depth somehow.

I use an LED but I went to test them out before I bought new and if I didn't like it with LD when I got home I would have returned it.

I use Pioneer Plasma KRP-500A (European Model).
I watch LaserDisc @ 1920x1080.
To get good picture you need to spend some time calibrating.
I used "Video Essentials" LD for this.

Panasonic TH-50PX77U 50" Plasma

1080p capable display, but the actual resolution is 1366x768

Beautiful picture? Absolutely. Looks great for LDs and blu-ray

Here's a pic of the THX LD of The Jungle Book and the Synapse blu-ray restoration of Suspiria on it...

I believe there is another topic with the same issue.
It is the power supply, but you need to search, I believe you need to get a correct one as others may not work right?

Please search about this, someone else had this issue.

Runco LJR II

Model not being sold in Japan
THX acquisition
Well, you can get the Denon LA-3500G in Japan. That would be the closest you get could get to the Runco LJR II.

They're both based on the Panasonic LX-900 and both have a stock AC-3 RF output.

PC monitors
For WEB browsing + LD viewing
I am trying

BENQ GW 2750 (full HD)

PC monitors
Compared to ordinary plasma, liquid crystal TV
Is the performance different?

Is the difference overwhelmingly inferior to PC monitors?
I used to have a Pro CRT computer monitor as my home theater display--a Mitsubishi Megaview Pro 37.

The problem with using a computer monitor for movie and TV watching is that they're usually WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get.) Meaning, you have to feed a computer monitor a good video signal as there's not much that the monitor does to the signal. If you're using any type of legacy equipment with them (like Laserdisc), you need a good processor and/or scaler between the source and the monitor in order to get a good picture.

I eventually gave the Pro monitor to my brother and opted to get a Sony WEGA.

Now that's not to say that computer monitors aren't good displays. They obviously are since they are made to handle a high quality image that computers produce. It's just that I've found that home theater video sources and computers have different needs from their respective displays. HDTVs are usually great for movie viewing sources (blu-ray, DVD, LD, etc.), but only good for a computer image. While computer monitors are great for computer images, but only good for movie viewing sources.

hello powerofld !
I think that the screen will shake in still mode with any video processor, except IDK video processors. I don't know why.
Even lumagen can't stop the screen shaking in still mode.
IDK is a really really strange creature...
