  About 10 years ago a book about the development, marketing and demise of 
the CED system was published.  I read it -- fascinating -- but don't remember 
the title or author.

I have a few questions about this unit, they may seam a bit daft but I am 
going to ask any way. The first question is, can AV. inputs be added to it?
Is there any way that this unit can be upgraded to stereo?

I'm guessing they'll soon have a DIVX player in there. Heh... I am going 
to auction off 2 fully decommissioned DIVX players. Sorry, these don't 
have hacks on them, if I did put a hack in them, I'll be eaten alive by 
the DIVX lawyers, as they are still being paid to protect the ZOOM 
Television patent. That will cease in June 2001. We'll see after that.

It's interesting how most people who see an RCA CED disc player today think 
it is a new product.  It's product design has held up well over the years.  I 
can take a movie and insert it into the player (a 400) and everyone thinks it 
is some new video product.  Most old video components look dated.  Even the 
earlier players still look pretty "cool."

I have two SFT 100 CED players that don't work! I live
in Northern VA near DC.  Do you know where or how i
can fix it?  How much should it cost?  Does anyone
know of a local expert so that I can just drop it off
and pay to get it fixed?  Thanks.
