Hello Videolibbers:

We are investigating players for our library, and have a few questions.

Does anyone have experience with combo VCR/DVD players? We want to know if
a video or a dvd gets jammed in it, does the other function still work? Or
if one breaks down, do they both break down?

Is it better to buy single use players to connect to a monitor?
If you mix brands of players and monitors, what kinds of issues arise about
connecting them together?

What are the issues that arise when you allow patrons access to the players?
Do you have to nail down the remotes? Do instructions on use? Use some
kind of information/instruction sheet?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
