The Atari Jaguar Startup.

On a black background, we see the word "Jaguar", in a grungy red font with the diagonal line of the "R" being made of a cat scratch, zoom in. The word "ATARI", in a silver 3D font, tumbles to the bottom of the screen below the Jaguar logo, letters coming from all directions. When they stop, a small Registered trademark symbol () appears next to "Atari", then "Jaguar" slides up, and a cube with images of a jaguar inside it zooms in, spinning around. Finally, the entire logo zooms out.
In 1994 at the CES, Atari announced that it had partnered with Phylon, Inc. to create the Jaguar Voice/Data Communicator. The unit was delayed and an estimated 100 units were produced, but eventually in 1995 was canceled. The Jaguar Voice Modem or JVM utilizes a 19.9 kbit/s dial up modem to answer incoming phone calls and store up to 18 phone numbers. Players directly dial each other for online play, only compatible with Ultra Vortek which initializes the modem by entering 911 on the key pad at startup.
An unofficial expansion peripheral for the Atari Jaguar dubbed the "Catbox" was released by the Rockford, Illinois company ICD. It was originally slated to be released early in the Jaguar's life, in the second quarter of 1994, but was not actually released until mid-1995. The ICD CatBox plugs directly into the AV/DSP connectors located in the rear of the Jaguar console and provides three main functions. These are audio, video, and communications. It features six output formats, three for audio (line level stereo, RGB monitor, headphone jack with volume control) and three for video (composite, S-Video, and RGB analog component video) making the Jaguar compatible with multiple high quality monitor systems and multiple monitors at the same time. It is capable of communications methods known as CatNet and RS-232 as well as DSP pass through, allowing the user to connect two or more Jaguars together for multiplayer games either directly or with modems. The ICD CatBox features a polished stainless steel casing and red LEDs in the jaguar's eyes on the logo that indicate communications activity. An IBM AT-type null modem cable may be used to connect two Jaguars together. The CatBox is also compatible with Atari's Jaglink Interface peripheral.

First lets make sure you know what to expect; a Jaguar base unit with a cartridge plugged in will have the Atari Letters drop down and a red Jaguar logo zoom in with the cube/w picture of a jaguar spinning before the cartridge starts. With the JagCD plugged into the base unit, you no longer get that screen at all, just a Red/glowing jaguar logo with a random lightshow behind it. If you have a Jaguar cd game in it, the game should load, generally showing a "licensed by Atari" "plaque" before the main game screen, if it's not reading the disc right or if no disc is in it, a flashing picture of a CD with a question mark on it will appear. Lets start with that in our process of elimination here, just to make sure you know what to expect to see...
If I leave it on, "snowy" static looking dots present themselfves on my TV or sometimes vertical lines and even color-ish distortions, but the game will not start and the cube with the (animal)jaguar never appears.
The leopard print jeggings of console boot sequences, and the last boot sequence Atari will design for its last home console. It starts well enough, with a roar and a swishy logo that seems sufficiently badass for 1993, but then Atari's logo pops up and
