    Talking New to Jukebox restoration

    Hi, I am very new at all this. I have always wanted a jukebox, unfortunately havent been able to afford a beautiful vintage, however, I have started with an 1983 model. Not sure if it would be classed as a Jukebox, its called "Molly's Video Box" (Molly Meldrum). Because its my first, I am excited and want to get it up and running. All power appears to work, Lights, tv, speakers (when hooked directly to mini cd player). However the main system (video I am guessing) didnt come with it. I have searched the internet high and low to find out ANYTHING about my machine, but have come up with nothing. If anyone has any information or ideas in regards to it, it would be EXTREMELY appreciated!!!!
    Looking forward to becoming part of the community!!
    Cheers, Jo

    I just remember a thread on it here that the owner started, didn't get rave reviews for style. He was asking a fortune from memory. If your happy that's all that matters in the end. It gets you back into the hobby and thats a good thing

    Welcome by the way.

    but as a shell, surely it has some retro value and uniqueness.. Add a PC / an LCD and SK Jukebox or similiar..?

    I am guessing it would be VHS. I was actually hoping to install a PC, screen up top and touchscreen where the selection list was. and of course remove mollys head!!! I did get the box VERY cheap, do you think it would still be worth playing with???? And do you know anyone that would be a great source of information to help me??

    Nothing novice about it. If your looking at installing a PC and a Touch Screen, then SKJukebox or similiar is the next logical step.

    SKJukebox is good, free jukebox software. Google it

    I've since moved on from SK, but I can't remember what software I using right now, else I would have mentioned it too..
