The first portable CD-i players (310, 350 and 360) didn't have a Digital Video Cartridge on board, probably because the portable design would get too big and the small DVC model didn't exist yet (and it would take a lot of energy out of the battery too). It was still possible to play Digital Video on these CD-i players, as long as you connected the player to its Docking Station Unit. The Docking Station(22ER9142) has an integrated Digital Video Cartridge inside, plus its connected to the power adapter as well. The portable CD-i players were never sold to consumers (at least not in mass production) but the Docking Station was sold as a seperate product.
I knew the 370 model was made by LG in Japan but I noticed the Docking Station was also made in Japan, so it's not made by Philips itself. Were all the portable models made by LG?
