Re: Canadian goose outlet??

That is just spam, please just ignore it (probably anything posted by user ResEvots).
I've been trying to get the forum moderators to remove it but they all seem asleep...

Re: Thumb stick RC5/ Commander RC6

The CD-I 370 is a rebranded Goldstar GPI 1200 player, not a Philips model. I suspect that the Goldstar players do not even have an IR receiver.
And if they did, it would probably not recognize the Philips-authored RC5/RC6 protocols.

Note that the above is just conjecture, I have no hard data on this.

Re: CDi 370 Manual..Link or download.

The Philips CD-i 370 is a rebranded Goldstar GPI 1200. I haven't seen an online manual under either label, though.

You could try asking the owner of this one: http://www.freetimeweb.nl/home/electro/ ... i_370.html...
Devin also has one of these, but I don't know if he has a manual?

Re: Green Book now publicly available?

Thanks for the info! Webadmin at lscdweb says: With Philips permission, Adminius made this page with a download available to registered visitors available August 2011. Does this mean that the Green Book is not really intended to be "downloadable" to all people, only to registered visitors of the sit...

Green Book now publicly available?

Yesterday I found out that in May of this year, the Wikipedia entry for Green Book (CD standard) was updated with a link to the Green Book Version May 1994, Release 2 . The page states: However, the 1994 version of the standard was eventually made available for free by Philips. The provided link poi...

CD-i interview on Radio 1 (Netherlands)

I've been reliably informed that tonight there's going to be a short interview (5 to 10 minutes) about CD-i on the Dutch radio station "Radio 1". It's supposed to be aired somewhere between 4 am and 5 am (GMT+2), in the program "Nu Al Wakker" (Already Awake?) by WNL. If you're awake (and understand ...

I haven't left you but updates have been standing still for some time.

Re: Amazing!

there seems to be a 4MHz crystal driven by an internal oscillator within the chip itself, but there is no option between PAL and NTSC parts. It's weird because I think it should be driven at 4.43MHz for PAL and 3.58MHz for NTSC. Maybe that crystal isn't for video timing and the video timing is cont...

I had the same problem several years ago, but was unable to find a specification for the in layout (voltages etc). I have a functional adapter now but no spares, sorry.

I have the full (paper) service manuals for many Philips players (not all), but they are hard to scan because the interesting parts are all folding out to several times A4 size. Found most of these for sale online by accident several years ago, don't know if they are still obtainable. There used to ...

I don't mind, the information is there to be used. Just answering Ozfer's question about where the information came from (at least partially), since it's a bit hard to find on the site. I've got a fairly complete set of Philips CD-i player service manuals and these include the schematics and board d...
