It can be stylus but it might also be the discs.try to rewind and play again at the skipping part to see if it gets better the more stylus play these parts cause it might be dirt on the discs.i have the same model and you can use it to watch 3D vhds with glasses but you need also a converter box sold separately that has 4 inputs for glasses

Awesome haul!!
That ben hur set and godfather set is on my watch list.

Any quality difference between those two T2 boxsets?

I would buy that sucker for sure. If it’s right there in front of you then it can’t get smashed in transit.

In my part of the world that’s a $200-300 unit but unless he’s asking crazy money I’d just buy it. It’s a very good player in any part of the world.

In terms of packaging/content? The one with the gold 'T2' logo has a very nice type of faux-leather shell.

It also has a really good transfer & also the Guns N' Roses bit that is not on the DVD versions.

Enjoy :thumbup:

My opinion of AV cables is that beyond a certain quality threshold there is nowhere to go...and that threshold is basically “the one they threw in with the LD player”. You don’t need super shielding on cables like this unless you have the lead running between your cable modem, your Tesla coil, your Jacobs ladder, and you have a 1950s vacuum cleaner running somewhere on the came circuit.

Situations where I was actually glad to have an expensive cable are limited to ones where durability of the cable itself is the issue. Guitar and microphone cables...they always eventually get killed so if you buy tough ones you don’t have to as often go through that ritual of finding which cable is bad.

Had a similar issue with my DVL-919, although only the LD part. The DVD tray had no problem ejecting. Replacing the belt fixed it all up.

Gently push the tray forward at the time it expects to be open. If there are no other issues, you should be able to get it to open.

This seems to have done the trick! Truth be told I was kind of scared of pushing it but it all seems to be working now. Thank you!

CED isn't really my thing, but I found this review in an old issue of Video Review magazine I found recently.

Figured those of you who enjoy the format might like it.

The Avengers (1998)

Hadn't previously seen this one. What you have here is such a grab bag of randomness that it ends up being completely incoherent. I mean the style is cool, it's visually engaging, and all that. And it should have been a lot more fun seeing Sean Connery playing what could have been a fun send up of James Bond villains, but overall this thing is a mess.

Warners made some pretty bad mistakes with this one. After a test screening which was not done in an appropriate location it was mercilessly hacked to bits.

Below is from the IMDb site & may help explain why it turned out as it finally did.

The original cut of the film ran around 115m., according to advance reviews. Many of the scenes cut include:
The original opening sequence featured the "Evil Emma" infiltrating a secret base, the Prospero Project. She drives up to the base in a blue Jaguar on a secluded London highway, and enters through a red phone booth by uttering the words "how now brown cow? After gaining access to the base, she proceeds to kill several of the scientists and security personnel, and destroys the base by blowing it up.
The scene of Sir August De Wynter playing organ was originally shown after the opening. As the base blows up, he exclaims "let our revels begin!"
When Emma Peel enters the Gentlemen's club, the attendant who insists that she not enter because she is a woman continues to prevent her from entering, and which point she Karate chops him, which sends him flying down a flight of stairs.
A scene of Sir August De Wynter, dressed in the teddy-bear suit, rhythmically slicing the face of a scientist to classical music while trying to figure out the clues to the Prospero Project.
The first meeting between Emma Peel and John Steed was originally longer. You can see her walking through the corridors before she finally makes her way into the sauna. The dialogue is longer, more frank, and it isn't dubbed, as it is in the theatrical release.
A more coherent explanation of why Emma's Jag exploded after the mechanical bee attack.
Emma Peel drops from De Wynter's arms as she is escorted to his room. He doesn't let go of her, and brings her back up swiftly.
When Sir August De Wynter has Emma Peel in his bed, he lowers the zipper on her shirt just a little more.
More scenes of Peel and Steed walking through the corridors of Wonderland Weather.
Emma Peel bounces back and forth between the walls of her padded cell.
Sir August De Wynter drives to the World Council meeting in a Rolls Royce snowplow after it begins snowing heavily as a result of his weather machine.
More shots of Mother witnessing the worldwide destruction that the weather machine is causing.
More scenes of Peel and Steed walking through De Wynter's headquarters after they lower in through the telephone booth.
An extra shot of Big Ben exploding, shown from slightly farther away.
During the climactic battle between John Steed and Sir August De Wynter, De Wynter slices Steed with his sword several times. De Wynter raises his arms as the battle nears it's end. Steed becomes enraged toward the end of the battle. Note how Steed's shirt is inexplicably cut and bloodied after the fight begins.
After the Prospero Project self-detonates, a countdown clock begins to tick, nearing toward the explosion. When the explosions begins, the silver dome in the headquarters ( the one Steed and Peel pass when they enter) is shown exploding.

Dune (1984) [43153]

I walked in mostly cold with regard to this one. Had heard about it but had never previously seen it or read Herbert.

All I can say is: WTF did I just watch....? I think I'll just leave it at that.

If it is any consolation the Dune LD you watched is by far the best release on the LD format.

All I can say is: WTF did I just watch....? :lol:

I take it you will not be spinning that one again then.
