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.

I wonder where they got information about a IVO V12 Portable (Sony). Perhaps that was to be the DVC version?

Only the games, they shoved in a bunch of other unauthenticated stuff including this hardware [as it appears] and all those CD-i Reference/Education/Entertainment titles. Not a particularly good practise, it's always best to check these things against a few reliable sources first!

Got myself a DVS http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0308327338 unit for $5.00! Received today and works like a charm! It included a Cdi disc: America's Dental Health with Joan Lunden, from 1997! Now I know everything about tooth, the interactive way :wink:

Wonder if the printer port would work with this application, and the purpose of the DC jack in the back.

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

I know that the DVS VE-200 has a special remote, and that it was made in Korea.

Does anybody have more information about the remote? Does it have dedicated play/pause buttons and all that? Does a 'normal' cdi remote also work on the VE-200 player?

On Interactive dreams it was stated that the DVS is actually a LG player.
Does the LG also include this special remote (or was it another different remote)?
Does anybody have a picture?

LG Electronics (a Korean company) manufactured the VE-200 player but it was distributed under the brand-name: Digital Video Systems. My remote looks exactly the same as Lemmi's except i think it says DVS instead of LG on it. Other CD-i remotes do not work on the DVS player
