Subject: Dolby Surround on CED??

Hello everyone,
                    I have a bunch of titles that according to Dolby's master 
list and the CED's label are encoded in Dolby surround. What I was wondering 
is what setting I put my home theater receiver to hear them correctly. I have 
Dolby pro-logic, Dolby 3 stereo, hall mode, and regular stereo to choose from 
on the receiver. Will any of these work or is a different sound decoder 

                                                                Aaron Girardin

  Some years back I used to rent Selectavision players and discs.
In fact I had a player on hand for a year or more.
After stumbling onto the cedmagic web site, I found myself interested in
getting one of these players again.
After reading about all the different players that were made and the
recommended list on the website, I decided to
find an SGT250. I was surprised how hard they are to come by and how
expensive they are.
No luck with the local thrift stores or papers.

Anyhow, the player is supposed to be here this week and I have started to
collect some discs to play with.

I am curious about the people in this group. I have a large LD collection
and have started to collect DVD as well.
So it would seem odd to start collecting CED at this point, but I guess I
like a little nostalgia from time to time.

I am wondering how many people watch these on a regular basis. I am also
curious how all these old discs are going to play.
I remember at the tail end of my rental days the discs used to skip badly.
>From the reading on the web page, some of this may have been caused by the
player itself.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone about these things.

I seem to be recieving the digest, but nothing in between. Possibly this is

For anyone in Manhattan or thereabouts, the Eighth Ave. Salvation Army
(between 20th and 21st Streets) has an SJT090 for $34.99 in their basement
area. The label indicated it had been there since April, and marked down
in price a couple times, so they may not keep it much longer.
