Thought I'd post this here for CRT fanatics to see :

LGR on youtube made a video on an amber monochrome monitor. sadly there's moiré patterns and no close-up shot, but otherwise we get a good look at the thing running some games. the monitor itself looks sexy af too!

Ain't no monochrome like amber-monochrome!


I wonder what super game boy would look like on that thing.

Hey does anyone know the pin-out for DB9 Serial to DIN mini 8, to hook up to the front socket on BVMs with a BKM-11R?

Was the pin-out for the BKM-11r mini-din 8 cable ever documented? Can anybody confirm whether this cable will work?

Not sure about that cable, but the pin outs are documented in the BVM service manuals.

I must say that widescreen BVMs are rare (and very expensive) here in Brazil, so I probably won't be able to get one.


Hi Daniel

Why do you want a widescreen model?

Did you guys know that some chinese company is still manufacturing plasma displays to this day? Model AKTV503 by Akai is a 720p 50" plasma you can buy today for around €250 (in Italy). Apparently it sells well! I thought plasma was a dead tech :o

Edit: looking at the box of this thing now, I'm scratching my head at that declared 16.7ms response time.. a plasma display that's so slow? Maybe they are sourcing the display from somewhere else and are throwing out some random numbers :lol:

"Some Chinese Company". Akai is a pretty well known Japanese brand. It also says this pretty clearly on that giant box.

Yeah but Akai is not manufacturing the panel themselves (almost none of the big Japanese brands do it these days, and Akai is definitely not a big one), they are likely sourcing it from the Chinese panel manufacturer that Xer Xian is referring to.

Ah yes that is true. Nowadays the Akai name is just used to rebrand products purely for brand recognition.

I'm about to retire my VERY trusty Zektor HDS4.1 component (and digital audio) switcher. It's a high quality switch that uses relays for everything.

Is there any market for this thing, or would I be dumb to sell it? It's remote controlled and responds well to my Logitech remotes and such.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the JVC BM-H2000PN and the JVC BM-H2000PN-K, not sure what the 'K' signifies??
