Oh, come on Ethan, you should know the primary rule of having a Laserdisc
collection, you can never have enough players. We've got three players at
home that we use and two more (three if you count the broken one) in storage.

Still, I'm trying to slowly convert the most important LD's in our
collection to DVD-R as I'm worried about bit-rot and the players slowly
dying. Sadly there is stuff on LD that will probably never make it
to DVD (I'd love Anamorphic Widescreen copies of some of our LD's).
