Well I have it signed by the man himself, Sean Connery.

I'm now the owner of a LaserDisc player. I bought a Pioneer CLD-2080 online. So far the only LD I have is the uncut version of Scream, but I plan on getting many more (the Star Wars trilogy is at the top of my list). I still need a remote for my LD player as the one I bought did not come with one.
Films and movies are two different things.

That gives you an excuse to buy a harmony remote if you don't already have one. My harmony remote works well with my CDL-1090. Welcome to the world of LDs

Thanks. Yesterday I also bought Blue Velvet and the CAV boxset of Fantasia. Unfortunately, side 2 of Fantasia (which is the Sorrcer's Apprentice scene too) has laser rot issues. It's still watchable but it's annoying. If I watch a disc with laser rot, will it affect or damage my LD player?

Congrats on the purchase! Welcome to the club. I remember when I got into Laserdiscs (wasn't too long ago actually). Started off with one player and a few discs.

Now I'm at 3 players and about 900 movies.... things escalate quickly...

Well I'm buying my 4th player! While yes, I admit that 4 players is a bit much, this was a deal that I could not pass up:

Fully Functional Pioneer DLV 700 (DVD/LD)
Pioneer RFD-1 RF Demodulator
50 Movies

all for $125!

I'm stoked because I am finally going to have an AC3 Player and Demodulator!

Holy smokes, what a deal!
Congratulations man. I always wanted to get a demodulator but have yet to find one for cheap and in good condition.
The laserdisc format was truly ahead of its time if you ask me. I love my CLD-D704
Much respect for Laserdisc.

I know what you mean. I never in my life thought I would get a good deal on a Demodulator but when I saw that ad, is like "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY".

I haven't picked it up yet (organizing a time to meet with the seller), but as soon as I have it in my hands it's going to be set up

It truly was, wasn't it? Too bad the movies cost an arm and a leg. But at least you can get them for cheap now, and i'm still amazing how well they hold up.

Very good haul indeed.
I'm still amazed you picked up a demodulator, a Pioneer one too, with the lot. Pioneer demodulators go for big bucks on eBay. Enjoy

Yeah, I think that is the big pride of my collection, the demodulator. I was actually more impressed that it worked (same with the player) as the owner said it was in his basement for a few years haha.

So do you guys watch the LaserDiscs on your large screens/projectors? Or do you set them up on smaller screens? Seems cool to have the option to grab movies that never made it to DVD or Blu and/or different cuts of films

I personally run everything off the same TV, 55" Samsung. I just ended up creating two different picture profiles, one for LaserDiscs, one for everything else.

I have a widescreen Sony tube which is my pride and joy. I love that TV as much if not more than my Kuro. It is absolute perfection for watching LD's.

I'm really torn whether to finally get rid of it or not when I move into my new house.

I wouldn't get rid of a nice crt like that until it died . It's cool to see everyone enjoys their discs on a range of setups.
