    Does anyone know if manufacturers are incorporating audio "visualization" software into their players, much like how Winamp and Windows Media Player does for PCs? I think that would be a great feature for DVD players. It would sure be a lot easier then running cable from your PC to your HT setup! Maybe its already out, I don't know. Thanks!

    I haven't heard of anything else tho

    Mark,
    Are you talking about just the PlayStation 2, or does the PS1 do that also?

    I recently purchased the Samsung N-501 which is a NUON enhanced DVD player. It includes the Virtual Light Machine which wil work on both CDs and MP3 CDs. I don't know an exact number but there are a LOT of effects, I know it's over 250. This is great for partys on a big TV!

    I had an original PSX, the dual shock model.
    I never really played around with any model besides the dual shock but I'd imagine they all have the feature.

    The old Atari Jaguar CD system had a visualization program. It was also called Virtual Light Machine. It was kinda cool.
    The NEC TurboDuo had one as well. So did the Sega Saturn. I have both of these systems.
    Good luck!
