Yes, I have it, but I'm not really good with these things
But I guess I have to try harder...

I have tried splicing scans together (with a different program) and it works fine if you put two A4 scans together. But the thing is I have these lobby cards (and now LDs) that are size A3 so it doesn't work very well scanning them twice because you can't lay the card on the scanner properly because of the edge on the scanner. The scanning doesn't turn out very well. But thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Those of you that are after HK films on LD can check out this thread:

http://adg.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=2557

It's HK guy Miles Wood who has lost his religion and is selling all his HK laserdiscs. This is just thread no. 1, he has 6 more.

Congrats from me too, Jack.....have you already watched one of those shiny babies ?? Perhaps the classical one ? Although I love classical music ( and metal ) I unfortunately also have no use for the LD....I try to stay away from music on LD....self-limitation, you know ....

....oh, and also thanks for the Miles-Wood-link....I praise the Lord that I have no money in the moment :lol:

Thanks, Uncle Chainsaw. No, I still haven't, I'm visiting my folks for a few days but as soon as I get home I will. Hmm, what will be first? Some nasty Lily Chung Cat. III film maybe. Miles Wood; yes he does have a lot doesn't he. I bought three of them, all stuff you either can't get on dvd or stuff that is OOP. One film I bought is SHAINGHAI BLUES!!! I have an old tv recording of this and it's a fantastic Tsui Hark film. And never released on dvd.

Kenneth M wrote: Beta tapes are the same. There are some releases that only got put out on beta. Sony manufactured a multisystem for beta. The model #'s end with the letters "ME" for "Middle East" as that is the only place that they were manufactured for. I was able to find me a pristine example on ebay about a month ago.



This one is a SL-800ME model. It is a pro-sumer model with 4 heads and runs on any voltage between 99-264v without need for an external voltage converter. It plays European PAL, UK PAL, ME SECAM, French SECAM, Moroccan SECAM, NTSC 4.43, NTSC 3.58 and has 3 built in tuners. I paid just over $500.00 including shipping.

All in all, I'm just glad I can finally watch my beta copy of "Buitres sobre la ciudad" with Maurizio Merli!!!
If any of the American members here are looking for one of these SL-800ME ultimate multi players there's one on eBay right now. Unfortunately, the bastards only sell to people in the US.

6 days to go:
