Perhaps Tom Howe can shed some light on exactly what "circuit,"
"gear," etc., that we're dealing with here.

Here's an interesting story of what I found at the flea market yesterday. 
One of the large indoor spaces had a bunch of CED's stacked on a table, 
plus there was an old Zenith TV with a player actually hooked up to it 
and playing! There was a stereo in the building playing a radio station, 
I wanted to ask them to hook the CED player up to it!
Out of a ton of discs (lots of good titles) I only found one I didn't 
have already, Monty Python's Life of Brian, but I saw something that 
REALLY would've wrecked my whole day- I saw the Duran Duran music video 
album, a disc that had been on my "Holy Grail" list a long time til I 
finally found one, this was only the second one I'd ever seen. The cover 
had the name and the picture of the group X'd out with a felt pen and 
written in big letters "F--- Duran Duran" and note that the caddy 
actually contained The Who Rocks America. First time I'd ever seen a CED 
defaced in such a way, needless to say if that'd been the first time I'd 
found the Duran Duran disc I would have been EXTREMELY devastated!
The same place had a big space selling mostly video games, but there was 
a shelf with video tapes on it too. I found 3 Beta tapes that were Zenith 
dealer sales training tapes from 1979, one was titled Video Recorder 
Selling Points and another was Black and White TV Selling Points. I got 
real excited til I noticed the erase-protect holes were covered up- 
someone had taped over all of them!!!!! I just about died right there; 
anybody have unruined copies of these tapes they could copy for me?

Subject:  CED player #3 / Jane Fonda Workout. 

Well, I ended up getting another player and a CED at a flea market for
$3.00. Now I have 3 players..... Yipee..... The new player is a SJT - 090
and the movie is "Jane Fonda's Workout". My wife likes it, I thought it was
kind of weird. I like the fact that it's dual channel and that you can switch
between words and music or just music on a stereo player. I might just
copy the music off of it for myself, it's a catchy tune. 

The SJT - 090 player that I bought works but it's really dusty inside. I plan
on cleaning it before any massive use. The guy bought it years ago and
rented movies for it but only had the Jane Fonda CED that came with the
player. It had been sitting in his attic for a long time he said.....  I had to
replace the insert / reject belt. 

Later in the day at the same flea market I found another SJT-090 for sale.
The guy wanted $30.00 for it. I left it there for another CED collector
though.... The guy didn't have any movies, he said that he just rented the
disks a long time ago. The CED must have been a big rental thing at one

Well, I'll write more later..... I gotta go....
