Hi all. I have recently been looking at my DVD to disk storage ratio and was wondering if any of the DVD changers on the market, or from the days gone by are still compatible with LinuxMCE. I would really like to load my series DVD's into the core for "on a whim" playback. However with the new HD content taking sometimes 4G an hour, even though disk is cheap these days, I would like to re-purpose my existing disk for recordings. But rather than have to run about gathering up series DVD's and movies, I was wondering if a Jukebox would still foot the bill.

Thanks in advance, and Best Regards,

Seth

Unfortunately, none of the devs have access to these jukeboxes anymore, as they have either died, or been stolen by Danish people who claimed to be helpful souls for LinuxMCE.

All of my Sony VGP-XL1B3 jukeboxes have all died spectacular deaths, and the Powerfile series of jukeboxes no longer exist (ironically, I think those are far better built). I do think tkmedia still has working units.
