There are three DVD changers in the system. In my main rack is Sony's three-piece Digital Living System
(DLS). Two Vaio XL1B2s hold 200 discs each and are connected to a Vaio HTPC. (You can daisy-chain up to five of these changers.) XP's Media Center Edition takes you through disc intake, re-naming (if you need to), and organizing the discs which results in the DVD cover art displayed on-screen as thumbnails. Simply click to play DVD. Bear in mind the DLS does a lot of cool things and is wonderful when it works, but after all it is a PC, and you must know your way around Windows - and then some - to keep this beast up and working. The HTPC is connected to the Yamaha receiver via HDMI. Amazon has some reviews on the DLS: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-VGX-XL2-D.../dp/B000EMUI4M
Downstairs is my 301-disc DVD-F727 Pioneer changer. Titles for the selections are entered by keyboard, and they show up on-screen. I bought this unit seven years ago, and it's been great. I noticed they are still making them: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn..._33506,00.html
This changer is connected to the receiver via three 40' component video (RGB) cables. By the way, I keep movies in the DLS changers and TV shows in the Pioneer.
Remote control of the DLS, the Pioneer and all RC equipment house-wide is accomplished with multiple Buffalo IR targets and emitters. http://www.discounthomeautomation.co...FQILPwodjj1UnQ
