"The Stand is a flipper release," 2 episodes on each side.

I don't mind flippers in situations like the above, however the 1 disc flipper they did for King's "Storm of the Century" was completely stupid. The miniseries was 3 episodes. Did they put 2 episodes on one side, and the remaining episode on the other? No...that would be too easy. They put 1.5 episodes on each side. Yes, that means that the show cuts off abruptly (and mid-dialgoue, mind you). Grr...

I know Sony and Kenwood had at least one changer each that can autoflip, don't know if they're still being made though.

Sony STOPPED making changers that flip. More evidence of their greatness. I think it was the 875 that flipped and the current 985 does not. I may be slightly off in my model numbers. I'm not sure if the other current Sony does this, I don't think so. That is the 777ES.

Nobody else even has a megachanger that is currently being produced. You may still be able to find new ones sitting on shelves, but nothing is current except for the 2 Sonys.
