Bought a used 27" picture tube TV

March 14, 2019 02:09PM
Not 100% sure where I'm actually going to put it

yes , my 1970's TV shows look just fine on our 60" HDTV

but........

they look much better on this 27 inch 480 pixel tube TV , thumbs up smiley , the way they were intended

actually wanted to get a actual 1970's TV , with the old 13 channel knob

but , those older TV don't even have cable access , and the later ones that do , you have to do some down scale converting to go from HDTV to analog

plus those old TV's still used alot of tubes , just more things that could go wrong and make it hard to fix if they do

so I compromised and went with a tube TV from the early 2000's . still has the curved picture tube . but solid state ,so alot less to go wrong , plus RCA jacks so I can hook up DVD players and even a ROKU

plan on building a wooden cabinet around it , give it that 70's console look
