    I'm looking for a DVD changer that will randomly shuffle between discs when acting as a CD player. Does anyone know of such a beast? Thanks.

    My old Panasonic (CV-51) does and from what I understand the newer Panasonic (F87) does as well. I'm currently looking to upgrade my CV-51 and am also adamant in getting one with this same shuffle/random feature as well. I believe the Sony only shuffles songs amongst the one disc and not the five.

    I'm looking at the Onkyo CP-702. I thought I had read on this forum that it does have the shuffle/random feature amongst all 6 discs.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your response. I went out to buy a DVD disc changer that can handle burned DVD's i.e.slide shows and home movies as well as act as a CD player. The sony I picked up played the burned DVDs but did not play randomly between discs.

    I have a Sony 200 DVD changer that plays burned DVD's and shuffle between CD's. It will not play burned CD's however. I now use HTPC to play my movies and music so this has been unused for a while, I could possibly sell it if you're interested.

    I have 2 sonys of both: DVD & CD. I would keep the cds in their own changer which is only about ~$100 for a 200 unit.

    Because of the SW, the DVD changer run very slow when switching from disc to disc unlike a cd stand alone model.

    Unless you like a lot of silence between songs.
