I guess people forget the days when DVD players cost $10,000
dollars, and what could you even play on them at the time? 15
titles?

We had one in the lab, one of the first region one players. Five DVDs were initially released in region one. One was a documentary on volcanos. One was somethiing called "Animation Greats". I still have it. It's the oldest DVD you're ever likely to see. If I had known, back in 97, that this disk was so bad it was not worth watching (both in the National Film Board of Canada's choice of "great" animation, and the absolutly horrid DVD coding), and that it would now be worth $120 unopened as a collectors item, I would have hid it away.

And the cat came back....
