NON-Philips cd-i players...?

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

The V10 I've, the menu is in chinees or japanees, I don't see the difference.
The other difference are explained on http://www.icdia.co.uk/players/nonphilips.html
The IVO-V11 was an improved version of the IVO-V10, it solved some compatibility issues and it was compatible with the standard for CD-i pointing devices.
The outer looks are the same only the marking V10 and V11 is the difference.

I don't have tried a pointing device on the V10, it has a build in pointing device.
The players could not be upgraded with Digital Video functionality.

Devin, you have the DVS CD-i system right? Can you upload a few pics from front and back, some eye-candy? I'd love it.

I have some photos somewhere that I took for a magazine some years ago. If I discover them on this PC then I'll surely upload them! :D

Does the DVS system have a digital video cartridge?

I'm thinking of adding a CD-i player to my video game collection, and there is currently a DVS system on ebay, but I want to make sure I get one that can play any game I buy.

Also, is there a port to connect a joystick? Am I better off going with a model like the 550?

My knowledge on the CD-i systems is pretty limited. Any advice you can give would be appreciated. :)

I am told the DVS system was produced by LG and based on the GDI player form LG, so it should have integrated DVC and input for controller-port.

However, I've never hold it in my hands, neither I have seen any decent pics, so Devin is the one to call ;)

Thanks for the info, guys.

I was hoping Devin would stop by to answer my question about the controller port, but I may just take my chances.

Oh he will, I'm sure he will take a few pictures as well. If anyone have a DVS system for sale, I'm ready to buy ;)
