Ok, i guess i can only play these laserdisc-games if i have a Pioneer PX-V7 or PX-7?
Or else to work on any MSX i need the Pioneer ER-101?

This would be almost impossible because i don't recall ever seen a PX-V7 or ER-101 on Ebay (or else).

Has anybody ever tried to play the laserdisc-games with a NTSC player (like LD-700) and a PX-7 (PAL)?
Could this work?

As the article says (I think), it doesn't work. Ask STT to be sure.

The LD Basic also needs some hardware: the audio channel of the laserdisc should be routed through the MSX to load the game program from it.

Serial connection?, I see....; so, my LD it's not "compatible" at all... Tongue

About the availability of the PX-7, this one is from two days ago....

I think that some Laserdisc system with RS-232 would be MSX compatible. The problem is that there is no replayer or arcade game coded for MSX computers. There is some old games that use a Z80 machine to play Laser Disc games with RS-232. If someone make a MSX-like Z80 code it would play on MSX computers equipped with Atari controlers ...

The PX-7 has several connectors in the backside to connect several laserdisc models. It has a Din and 3 jacks (DIN and 2 jacks for OUT, other jack for IN)
As the CLD-3090 has 2 jacks also, it is probably compatible.
You will have to find out which pinout is the one you need. PX-7 has 2 "OUT" jacks: one is stereo jack and the other one is mono type, but only one is used at a time.
As the manual says, a simple stereo cable is needed from "out" (in the PX-7) to "in" (in the Laserdisc).

As you can see, CLD-3090 has duplicated video and audio output. These are to see the original picture and the mixed picture in different monitors...

The difficult with iso is the Laserdisk is analog not digital, every RIP you can find is make digitizing the laserdisk.

Now you have daphne emulator and mame is almost ready to play laserdisk, so i think in a future we can play it with bluemsx and/or openmsx.
