Hi Julien,

thanks for this, I would like to make a remark, Pioneer changed the serial number coding ~H2 1997 :

example1 : RE 7517272 EA = May 1997 (R=1997 & E=May) [used on a CLD-D925]
example2 : RK EA 020731 YY = November 1997 [CLD-S315]
example3 : SE SA 021316 YY = May 1998 [CLD-D925]

etc

so from "LL DDDDDDD LL" to "LL LLDDDDDD LL"

This applies certainly for european players such as CLD-D925, CLD-D515, CLD-S315 and DVL-9x9 [as I own models where this applies]

So in your mint-o-matic you may replace the check to "LL XXDDDDD LL"

Kind regards,
Edwin

Thanks for the serial samples, I added LLLLDDDDDDL(L) as another matching pattern.

If you have a LD player manufactured after 2000 (CLD-R5, HLD-X9, Combi LD/DVD player), could you send me your serial number for test? Thanks!

Julien


My HLD-X9 supposedly was manufactured in 2001.
Serial is BBTT006968JP.
Mint-o-Matic tells me it was manufactured in February 1981 :)

Cheers!

That's why I was waiting for an example of recent serial numbers to update my code :-)

Code updated, if we believe A restarted from 2001 (and not 2000) then your HLD-X9 is actually from February 2002! :thumbup:

And that would make this little guy a CLD-R5 from 2003:

nice video, the 1750 is a good player, I had the 1850 once
Now sporting five players, four pioneer and one kenwood.
CLD 2950, D750, D515, CLD 2750K (USA with dual voltage) and LV-9200 Kenwood karaoke

I'd love an elite player one day, have the dream of owning a runco LJR I or II, highly unlikely though

I had several models over the time that I collect laserdiscs.

Sony MDP 212
Pioneer CLD-1600 ( exact copy of the CLD 1750 but PAL only )
Pioneer DVL-909
Pioneer DVL-919E
Pioneer CLD-D925
Pioneer CLD-S315

The both DVL's were the finest ones.

Ultimate goal is to get a HLD player ( X9 probably ).

My birthday was last week and I got a Panasonic LX-600u in the mail yesterday. It's a great player thus far, much superior to my garbage Magnavox CDV 474 with a broken tray and scratches discs.

Congrats! Panasonic players have a good reputation. Now you'll need to watch all your discs again!!

I have a Pioneer CLD-D701 and a Pioneer CLD-M301. The 701 is a single disc player that plays both A and B sides of the disc. The 301 is a single LD player but has a 5 CD tray. The 301 only plays one side of a LD before needing to be flipped over manually. I currently only use the 701 model with the rest of my system. I have a Yamaha DDP-1 AC-3 Processor as well as a Yamaha HTR-6140 AV receiver.

Let's see... what do I own??.....

I have a total of thirteen players and all of them are Pioneer or Pioneer based machines. They are as follows in order of oldest to newest machine.

Pioneer, LD-838D (recently acquired and will probably mod it for AC3-RF output at some point)
Pioneer, CLD-3030 (my main machine still for my home theater as well as being the first machine I ever owned. In addition, it was the first machine that I modded w/ an AC-3 RF output)
ProScan, PSLD43 (Pioneer, CLD-2090 clone)(recently added "scratch built" AC3-RF output)
Pioneer, CLD-M90 (single side LD player w/ five disc CD auto changer that will get an AC3-RF mod w/ another scratch built board along w/ a PCM coax/optical mod at some point)
Pioneer, CLD-D701 (a modified unit w/ an internal AC-3 RF Demodulator)
Denon, LA-3100 (Pioneer, CLD-D701 clone)(I own two units and both are modified for AC3; one w/ AC3-RF and the other w/ an internal AC3-RF Demodulator)
Pioneer, CLD-D702 (recently acquired w/ damaged alpha turn mechanism and jog wheel; will attempt to repair all of it. Also, if and when fixed, will perform AC3-RF mod to it.)
Pioneer Elite, CLD-97 (recently acquired and will be the fourth player to receive an AC-3 RF Demodulator mod if there are no space limitations)
Pioneer, CLD-D703 (will be @ some point be my third player w/ the AC-3 RF Demodulator mod)
Pioneer, CLD-D704 (on my next home theater update, I will have the modded 703 and this stock 704 set-up as a tandem pair that will work though a Sony, SDP-EP9ES AC-3 processor)
Mitsubishi, M-V7057 (Pioneer, CLD-D704 clone) (I just had to adopt this unit since it was so cheap @ $40. Not sure what to do with it yet)
Pioneer Elite, CLD-59 (not much to say except that it's glossy and looks great. It may not be a truly Elite model since it’s basically a subtlely upgraded D604 but it’s still a fine machine).


In respect to surround processors / AV receivers, I have....

Pioneer, VSX-9700S, Dolby Pro-Logic AV Receiver (stored away but might bring back as an audio only stereo receiver w/ possible multi-room applications)
Sony, SDP-E800, Dolby Digital Surround Processor w/ AC3-RF input (recently acquired to use with newly modded ProScan player and will use 5.1 self powered PC speakers on it for a low cost set-up)
Sony, SDP-EP9ES, Dolby Digital Surround Processor w/ AC3-RF input (used as a digital switcher now w/ the Denon AVR-2808CI & the Pioneer CLD-3030 LD player)
Denon, AVD-2000, Dolby Digital Surround Processor w/ AC3-RF input (recently acquired and now being used as another digital switcher w/ the Denon AVR-3805 & the two Denon LA-3100 LD players)
Sony, STR-DE915, Dolby Digital AV Receiver w/ AC3-RF input (on loan to a brother)
Denon, AVR-3805, Dolby Digital / DTS AV Receiver (on loan to another brother and coupled w/ the Denon, AVD-2000)
Denon, AVR-2808CI, Dolby True HD / DTS Master HD AV Receiver (my main unit at this time and coupled w/ the Sony SDP-EP9ES)
Marantz, NR-1605, Dolby True HD / DTS Master HD, WiFi-Bluetooth capable AV Receiver (a broken unit that I am working on fixing and not sure what to do with afterwards)


Yup.... I have too much equipment. :roll:

I voted probably 2-3 years ago, but it looks like I forgot to leave a comment.

I use a Pioneer LD-S1.

Before the S1 I believe I used a Mitsubishi player. Prior to that I think I had a Pioneer CLD-V2400.

My very first player was a Pioneer LD-660. That was followed by the Sylvania VP-7200 and the CLD-909. The next "main" player I had was a CLD-3030 and LD-W1 that I bought together. When the 3030 died, I purchased a CLD-D703, which I still have. I also still have the original LD-W1.

Over the years, I've tried to re-purchase every player model I owned over time. I've gone a little overboard, as you see from my current player list here. I replaced the CLD-909 with the CLD-1010, because I really didn't like the 909 and the 1010 had the same "swing up" CD motor assembly the 909 had.


An update on my current player list. I use the DVL-919 (MIL) for anything requiring analog audio, the HLD-X9 for anything with AC-3, DTS or PCM audio and a VP-1000 for most DiscoVision.
