Well, I'm not sure if this even relates to CED players, but if anyone still 
wants one, you can almost get them for free from American Science and 
Surplus.  They are on the net, just do a search.  I say basically for free 
because the player was only $32 and shipping was only a few bucks.  The thing 
is so heavy they obviously paid well over $30 to get it to me via UPS.

Hi, there!
 I just discovered your great website. I would like to subscribe to your 
service. Is there a charge and how much is it? I have just fallen heir to 
about 1000 CED disks and have no player for them so I am looking for a good 
one in working condition. Any info you can give me will be helpful. Thank you. 
My e-mail address is the following

 Hope to hear from someone soon,

To Dave:

I'm not sure whether the current "Vinyl Video" system is a hoax, but there
was a system marketed in the 1930s (I think) that encoded video signals on
vinyl records mechanically, using an earlier version of the television
system (not the system that we use today for video). As for reel-to-reel
video and cassette tape video, we already have them...the first video
recorders used huge reels of tape. Interestingly, Fisher-Price (the toy
company) marketed a camcorder and monitor set for kids called (I think) the
PXL 2000 system in the 1980s. It recorded a few minutes of black & white
video on a regular 90-minute audio cassette (the tape must move past the
head very rapidly to get the bandwidth necessary for video). If I can
remember correctly, I saw a PXL 2000 kit at KMart for around $200.00 as a
kid. If anyone knows where I can get a PXL 2000,let me know! I've never seen
a system that records video to 8-track audiotape; I would think that the
tape speed would cause the mechanism inside the tape to jam!

Ive always thought the baddest CED movie is "I Spit On Your Grave." Maybe its
not that bad in being goofball, but its the one i'd least like to sit down
and watch with my wife.
