Late to the Technology Party
It finally occurred to me to see if PSPA could create a video cd, and sure enough, it can! I did a test run yesterday and our dvd player reads it just fine, so I put all the Parental Tour pictures on three cds, and we inflicted vacation pictures on TxB last night on the big tv.
The best part about our setup is that the tv can show the pictures from the dvd player while the receiver plays sound from cable television, so we put on a digital music channel and let the pictures run. It's kind of like having a screen saver with music. I'm really impressed with the quality of the pictures, too. They're full screen and quite sharp. I expect there are various settings to be made in PSPA to add transitions or text screens or whatever, but I'm pretty happy with just the default. I think I'll be making lots of vcd's in the future :-) It's much more fun to watch them in the living room on a big screen than in the office on a little monitor.
