Hi, As you can see, a newbie needs help I'm considering buying this LD player - a Pioneer 905, if I retained the model number correctly. It's for sale for $50 CDN (about $35 US) in a pawnshop - I believe they don't even know what they're selling, the boy at the counter thought it was a CD changer. Now, I tried two discs in it - Empire Strikes Back (last LD of the Original Trilogy, not the SE) and Firefox. I didn't watch the entire films - can't do that in the store! - but I skimmed through them extensively, back and forth. With ESB, I saw a bit of occasional crosstalk. The disc is absolutely new and clean. By contrast, I haven't seen any crosstalk with Firefox, although the image is considerably grainier - a mastering problem. Should I buy the device? I have about 20 LDs, which I want to watch and eventually put on DVD - if they will not become available on DVD before that... Would crosstalk be a real problem? Is there anything else I should be wary of? Do you think it's a good deal? Thanks in advance!
