Denver, Colorado members heads up

Hope you aren't too late.


Intriguing and very nearby. Would for sure jump on it if it were a 36" to at least try. Unfortunately I'm really looking for a KV-36XS955 for my game room.

Could inquire if anyone wants it and will be through Denver at a later date.

Well it wouldn't be a bad tv to hold you over till you find the one you are looking for. And it's free which is always nice.

Not the best for 240p gaming but a decent 480p and higher crt tv, in the Seattle area.
Loewe Aconda 38, this one looks like it has the vga card. Could be a good candidate to combine with the GARO.
This thing is a monster so you will need at least 2-3 guys.

Supposedly the colrs are awesome on those sets. Looks like a great 480p-to-1080i gaming CRT.

I wish I had one, or a Sony XBR960/XS955, for PS3 gaming.

KV36XBR400 out in Hartford, CT. area. Thoughts?


KV-34XBR910 in Boston area. Looks like its on a half-skid so if you have a flat bed you should be golden. Thoughts?

27" D-Series JVC for free in Montréal (South Shore) :
http://www.kijiji.ca/v-tvs/ville-de-montreal/tv-cathodique-jvc-37po/1244739938?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

Anyone in the area looking for a good cheap CRT should check it out, and ask the model numder.
If it's a D201 or a D501, then it's a 700 TVL set.

I guess I'll put this in consumer?

If anyone in the states is near New Jersey this is the first reasonably-priced FW900 that I've seen since I knew they existed (assuming the bid doesn't fly through the roof) - http://www.ebay.com/itm/222444822072

Looks like it has the G2 over voltage problem. There is apparently a firmware bug in these monitors that causes them to gradually get brighter.

How can you tell? Is there no fix to it?

This guy collected a bit of info into one post: http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=3 ... 01#p411714

The "fix" is to replace a resistor in the monitor and use a jig to reprogram the G2 voltage: http://www.myblog.bloggybloggy.com/hack ... 6-09-2007/

I happen to own one of the monitors on that list of affected models (A Sun GDM-20E20) and never had a problem with brightness. I can also recommend it for gaming paired with a XRGB2plus (no shimmering!). Beautiful picture on these and usually cheaper to find than a BVM/PVM.

Looks like a nice set, I love how sharp the JVC's usually look! I have a few comments about the geometry to try and help you out, but I'll put them in a spoiler and first say that if you don't notice it.....don't read what I've wrote lol. It's one of those things that once you see it, it's hard to un-see it.

Spoiler: show
If it's like my JVC AV-32320 you can get into the service menu by pressing the sleep button till it cycles through back to zero, and then pressing the "video status" and "display" buttons at the same time. There are some settings in there that will greatly help the image warping on your screen, it is very noticeable in mega man when the screen shifts vertically. There should be one that adjusts the top section, bottom section, and an overall vertical linearity control.

The bigger the screen is the harder it is to get the geometry under control, but you should be able to make a big improvement by just fiddling with those 3 controls and moving megaman up and down a ladder and watching the screen shift. RPGs with top-down overworlds are good to test this as well if you don't have 240p test suite. You could probably load 240p test suite on the SD card going into your Analogue NT mini, but if not there are a few other methods (I have it on a CD-R I use with my Sega CD).

Does anyone have any insight as to what a good price for a Sony BVM-14F5U would be? Seems like prices on all BVM/PVM are pretty high.

Eh, it mentions the DC being plugged into it via composite. So it certainly is not gonna look great.

Maybe that set has an S-video connection
but more than likely it's nothing special

How about this one, a bizarre chinese re-branded SONY PVM (Gension GSM-H15D):

maybe the chinese were buying late, end-of-production parts and assembling in HK?

A Sony KV-25XBRII is up for grabs in Montréal.
http://www.kijiji.ca/v-tvs/longueuil-rive-sud/sony-27-trinitron-television/1262513721?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

Somebody on here should grab it. The 20 inchers comeup from time to time, but the 25 incher is a lot rarer. It's not expensive either at $50. Maybe you can even haggle it down a bit.

And for those wondering : it IS possible to feed it RGB from consoles through its 34 pin Input. DanAdamKOF, who sometimes posts on here, has done it

I already have some PVMs, the largest one being 20". Since "good as new" SONY 29" are cheaper then a 8" PVM around here, I am considering getting one.
Newer models have flat screens, but I once read that flat screen CRT design has disadvantages (at least in theory): less contrast and less brightness due to "thicker" (double) glass and geometry and convergence issues on the corners. These problems were more or less solved by some companies, but not completely.
That is the exact reason why SONY PVM BVM never had 100% flat screen design: image quality.
Now, I am not saying the images on these sets is not good, but I would like to know from someone who own/owned both types: should I go for a late model flat screen SONY or an older model (curved)?
Are there curved models with component inputs?

yes, but the price is good for Brazil (and most people here still do not care for RGB).
may be a good monitor for a composite-only system like NES.

Commodore 1084S monitor for $50 in Montreal :
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... MZOtoSr08Q

If I was living there I would definitely grab that up at that price.
If only to have a shadowmask monitor. Plus that one is extremely versatile. Monochrome signal, composite video, S-video(spiltted over 2 RCA jacks), TTL RGB(RGBi), 15kHz RGBs.



Lots of great prosumer tubes in Montreal these days :) with this one and the 25XBRII available for pretty cheap

Eh, the 1084 isn't anything special. The one advantage it has is that its extremely common and easy to find. The AppleColor RGB monitor that came with the Apple IIgs is another 15khz RGB monitor to consider. The picture is vivid, but the dot pitch isn't the greatest.

The real jack of all trades monitors, if you can find one, is the original NEC Multisync (JC-1401P3A), and the Multisync II (JC-1402HMA). They accept pretty much every RGB computer video signal including TTL CGA/EGA RGB and 31khz VGA/EDTV.
