Just kind of amazed. Another poster mentioned something about laserdisc in the software forum today, which reminded me of my Pioneer CLD-406 (digital optical/coax output). The player has a production date of 12/96 and has been gathering dust for about a year and a half. Plugged it in today and it wouldn't start up. Turned it off/on once or twice (smacked it once or twice, too) and everything kicked in. Plays fine. Nice build job from Pioneer.
