I agree with Jesse on the DVD.... My parents recently bought a new computer
with a DVD drive and I managed to buy a couple DVD movies when Venture went
out of business.... At times the picture gets blocky or what I call grainy....
I've also noticed this happening with the digital satellite system that we
have. It becomes outright annoying when you notice it....  

On the other hand, pay per listen CD's.... Now there's an idea.... How can
all of us musicians make money off of it though... Hmmmmm....

Subject: BENJI.... Skipping problems....

Yes, the Benji CED is tremendously bad for pan and scan... I agree... Then
again it has wonderful music... C'mon everyone, sing along!!! "I feel love...
all around.... I can feel it...." You know the rest I won't continue.... 

Benji was my first CED that I bought along with a RCA model 090 player....
The disc was actually stuck in the player when I bought it. I replaced the
loading belt with a rubber band and was able to get the movie to work....
It's badly scratched but it plays fine..... I've since sold the player here
and I've bought 2 newer players... One for the my entertainment centrer and
one for the bedroom... 

The main problem that I have is dust getting on my discs when I forget and
leave them in the player for an extended period of time (this usually
happens when I fall asleep in bed at night)..... This seems to be the main
problem behind skipping on the players that I have.... You can take the
top off and use a fine paintbrush on the disc or any number of things to
clean the discs....  I try many different things...

To Tom
  I am looking for a remote for my SGT-250. I know you can get the remote 
for the 300 and it will work. I priced the remote for the 250 and it was 
$60.00 The remote for the 300 ws $30.00 but the place where I wanted to 
get it (Fox International) were changing $15.00 to ship it!!
  Do you know of any other source for the remote?
  I am also looking for a needle replacment for my SGT-250 can a brand 
new one be purchased? If so from who and how much? If a new needle is not 
avaiable then where can I get a good used one?

 Thank You!                                                      Peter

To Whom It May Not Concern:

Why is it that no one ever responds to my posts? For the past year I have sent
3 or four similar posts asking what I think is a fairly simple question asking
about why my CED player might be skipping. The only response I ever received
was from another "newbie" with a similar problem who wrote that he had also
received no responses to a post in this mailing list but if I did would I
forward any information. I have areas of expertise (CED players obviously not
being one of them), and when someone asks me a question about something that I
know, I try to be helpful and informative, even if they are just starting to
learn and ask some dumb questions. Can someone cut me some slack here? Is it
my AOL address that's putting people off? Should I have sent mail from my
Netcom account? Sorry to rant, but after a year of trying to get my player to
work it's getting a little frustrating. Thanks for any info regarding my
previous posts.
