  1. Vince's Conquests

    I'm probably just going to leave this one as-is and keep looking for a nicer set (like a Sony or Mitsubishi). I don't have recapping equipment and a Taiwanese mono RF-only TV set isn't really worth all that work.
  2. Vince's Conquests

    I fiddled with the 3 pots given to me on the analog board and switched the input from direct RF to an RF modulator and I got this as a result. No amount of adjustment cured the prominent "fold" in the picture but at least the black bar on top shrank.

    If it comes to that, this thing is going away...I got it for free and I'd have to buy a soldering iron and caps to recap it. This thing isn't worth that investment to me.

    The oh so nice people at Emerson hid the vertical and horizontal controls on the analog board (and not even on a part that's directly accessible by removing the rear of the case!) so that means I have to take it apart and pull out the analog board again to adjust it...

    Well this is going to be annoying to try and fix. Though it's not snowy like that when using a VCR, it still has the black on top.

    Ah, those were the days...so much candy colored plastic!

    Retro gaming is the main reason why I keep a CRT around, yeah. But my 2004 Emerson CRT is crap and if I'm gonna play games on a mono TV I'd rather it be one from the 80s than one from 2004.

    My only Trinitrons are those built into compact Macs, I'm afraid...

    This particular set isn't exactly collection worthy, being a relatively cheap ($249.99 in 1989) Taiwanese set...but 80s Sony Trinitrons are totally worthy of collecting.
  10. Vince's Conquests

    I wouldn't call it a collection, I wanted the Emerson for retro games... But yes, collecting CRT TVs (specifically older models from the 1950s through the 1980s) is totally a thing.

    Hey look, another TV. Because I guess all I acquire nowadays is TVs. This is an Emerson ECR2100 19 inch TV, manufactured in December 1989. Still has a nice bright picture but the vertical hold needs adjusting (there's a black bar above the "snow" when you turn it on) and of course I can't find a manual online.

    Oh, I love Deskpro ENs! Mine is the same, but with 512MB of RAM and Windows 2000 and an...80GB HDD? I don't honestly remember.

    Nice card, wish I had one of those for my B&W G3.

    I'm still hoping to someday blunder into a SE/30 PDS accelerator...

    I don't know if you could transfer over the analog board but I suppose it might potentially work for something like an Osbourne (I think the Kaypros had a bigger CRT?).
