My Trinitron HMD A200 PC monitor shows ghosting with white colors on dark backgrounds. I believe that the issue is with the VGA cable, but the cable is part of the monitor, unlike the power cable I cannot unplug it.

If it's a flat trinitron, a 27 inch set will be in the neighborhood of 100lbs, maybe a bit less. Lighter if it's curved. It should be fine, 27 is the cutoff for most people. 32 and up is an issue because they're also hard or impossible to get your hands around them in a good way for carrying but unless you have t rex arms the 27 should be manageable

SD TVs operate at a single fixed frequency (15kHz) which means they can natively display either 240p or 480i. EDTV CRTs also operate at a fixed frequency, 33.75kHz (540p/1080i), though they can also accept a 15kHz signal and upscale it to 540p (and further crop/zoom that 540p image to create a 480p image), but that introduces lag and often doesn't look very good with 240p sources.
A multiformat can automatically switch between 15kHz, 31kHz, 45kHz (240p/480i, 480p, and 720p respectively) based on the signal it receives, so it does not need to further process the signal before displaying it, brainlet.

The 8ms is an average number if a measurement of refresh rate of 60Hz at dead center of the frame given over given time.

In an analog CRT, the image is written to the first line of the screen as fast as it is received, with only 'nanoseconds' of delay for the signal to traverse the wiring from input to the electron gun. Digital signals need processing power and memory to prepare the frame for display, this is where 'milliseconds' of input lag occurs in digital displays.

While the original statement is true, it is false equivalency with respect to refresh lag and input lag. The latter of which a CRT is effectively zero and excels at for vidya.
>>
>>6558119
Thank you for proving my two points, that
1. it takes 8.33 ms for a CRT to show the image (fully), and
2. you are retarded
With your (retarded) logic, my LCD has only .7ms of lag. In reality, it takes 9ms for my LCD to show the image.

Let me explain it in simpler terms for the zoomer brain.
If we take a slow motion camera, hook up the CRT and LCD to the same input, what will we see happen?
We will see the CRT image fully appear only .7ms sooner than the LCD image appears.
This fact makes CRT owners assmad because they never knew this, and it defeats one of their main purposes for owning such shitty hipster technology.

Now, let's read my post again which you quoted
>A 9ms LCD
Now let's see what you compared to a CRT. Not a 9ms LCD! Oh no, you're wrong again and proved it yourself!
In fact, you didn't even post the model of that LCD whatsoever. You just pulled an irrelevant example out of your ass that doesn't have to do with anything.
Now, try that test with a 9ms LCD and see what happens. Go on. What happens? What's the result? Oh how sad, you can't answer this question because it proves my point and ruins yours.

Yes, a 9ms LCD against a CRT shows that there is less than 1ms of difference, and it makes you seeeeethe.

I mean, who cares. It's one metric. I'm sure it sucks vs a CRT in some other category.

Am I the only one who would gladly get rid of my CRT if there was a display that matched or bettered it in every category? Like, usually for free, you can get a display that will show any /vr/ console at it's native output res with no scaling etc required, is basically the baseline for "no" input lag, has contrast, viewing angle, colors that are only matched or beat by plasma/OLED, and has NO motion blur outside of phosphor trails. Wake me up when there's a display that can do everything a CRT can, as good or better, simultaneously.

It's been this way for a while, and the difference isn't enough to matter which is why esports competitions with millions of dollars at stake haven't used them since the beginning of the last decade. CRTs still have their place as retro displays probably forever, but when stuff like microLEDs come in that match or exceed CRTs with nanosecond response times that allow it to have similar "zero lag" times which will also result in similar motion clarity, it will be impossible to recommend CRT usage outside of its niche.

CRTards really don't understand anything. I'll explain it for you.
They're measuring lag in the same way people do here when they say CRTs have "0" lag. Actually, CRTs have 8ms lag and actually those LCDs with "1ms" lag have 9ms lag, but it depends on how you measure it.
You're right, they're basically spewing marketing bullshit and being deceptive. But ironically you've just pointed out that the people here claiming CRTs have "no lag" are doing the same thing, spewing bullshit and being deceptive.

Carts don't have perfectly square / sharp "pixels", the parts of them that get lit up by the electron gun aren't perfectly round, they're also seperated by a grille/mask.

Also most video connectors used besides pure rgb or component are blurrier than pure digital to digital, this is even seen on hd scalers that take "lesser" connectors as inputs.

Got an old SHVC SNES and recently its started to have wind like distortion on my CRT (29" Megaview). I tried a different AC adapter, still does it. I recapped it a couple of years ago and checked all the solder points and they're still good. I read the "7805" regulator might be noisy and I can replace it or add caps, but the website said the regulator causes the white vertical bars (and I have wind). I tried a couple different carts and the wind distortion is always there. Slowly rolls up and down the screen. Any ideas?

I got this CRT that appears to be in nearly perfect condition but has tearing like lines on certain parts of the screen. When turned off, there doesn't appear to be any damage to the glass and there is some gunk since I just recently obtained it from some guy who was keeping it in his garage. DO I just need to clean it up or is there possibly something wrong internally with the screen? They kind of look like thin scratches but also appear like static I can't tell and I'm kind of new to this.

Sounds like scratches. Did you try running your fingernail over the lines? You could also try shining a flashlight at the screen. Any scratches/defects on the scratch will cast shadows.

Is this a US model?
I've had 3 Trinitrons, no issues on 480p.
>>
>>6567259
Mine isn't the one on the picture exactly, but it's good to know there are Trinitrons compatible with 480p out there. But no, I'm not in the US, that might be a factor.
Do you have the exact models of the ones you've had?

Why is it so fucking hard to find a CRT that's new enough to take YPbPr but now new enough to be HD
>>
>>6567748
It's better to just turn them off when not in use.
>>6568163
I have 3 SD TVs with YPbPr inputs just sitting in my closet. Where are you looking?
>>
>>6568185
Damn you're lucky. I'm in Massachusetts. The big issue with finding them up here is that pawn shops are basically illegal, I saw more when I was out west

Can anyone recommend me some 14" or below crts? I only have limited room where i'm at. Pic related is my current tv. Nes and Snes games look really good but my ps2 looks like ass.
>>
>>6564013
It can be done effectively with minor scratches. One method involes buffing the glass with some sort of chemical. Apparently it's a long, laborious process. Some CRTs have an anti-glare layer over the screen. Peeling that off the screen can actually "fix" scratches as well since the scratches are actually on the plastic covering rather than the glass tube. I've done the latter with several of my "scratched" monitors.
>>
>>6568196
I'm in California so that makes sense. I got mine by going door to door in my neighborhood. I'd just tell people I could take old TVs off their hands and they were often happy to oblige. Have you tried second-hand video game stores? I got a 30" Panny with component for 50 bucks from a local store.

is it worth it to emulate games on a crt from a wii? im a poorfag that doesn't wanna buy a $70 snes flashcart and emulating shit on a pc just doesn't "feel right", excuse my autism.
>>
>>6567269
Not that anon you are talking to, but to my knowledge no SD consumer CRT does 480p. You'll have to look at HD CRTs and CRTs that support multiformat (specific pvm and bvm models).
>>
>>6568226
From my experience it's fine. Though for some reason playing on original hardware feels better but I don't know why. But yeah, it's fine. I did that for a while and enjoyed myself.
>>
>>6568221
Definitely gotta go to more video game stores, the only one I go to regularly is too small for TVs but there are more in town
>>
>>6568228
Aren't HD CRTs inherently shitty?
>>
>>6568228
This is the answer I expected and mostly wanted to confirm. Thanks. That narrows it down enough.
>>
>>6568278
I've heard they are shitty for 240p and 480i games but I'd imagine they'd be pretty good for HD stuff.

What's a good display if I want to be able to do use YPbPr component cables to put out a 480p signal? I know most consumer displays don't do it

To add on to this, Toshiba 14AF(40 to 45) and JVC AV-14F(702 to 704).

Are subwoofer vibrations bad for CRTs, PC or regular?
>>
Anons, are CRTs bad for your health?
>>
>>6568228
Does that mean there is no actual consumer grade crt compatible with progressive scan for certain games on a system like the gamecube?
>>
>>6568213
Do you know how I can check if it has a filter over the screen? And if not, what would the process be to clean small scratches? I have some material like glass polish scratch remover chemicals, that you can use to make glass clearer for car lights, windows and things like that. But I don't know if that is compatible with the specific type of glass of crt glass that I'm looking at here. This is a Sony Wega Triniton btw. Could it also withstand things like glasses polisher used for glasses? Because the screen is also a bit dirty in general and I need to fix that problem as well.

I've got a 27-inch panasonic; s-video, nice and bright, slight geometry issues. The only problem I have with it is that the image quality is so grainy compared to screenshots posted here. I don't remember my old tubes being so grainy when I was younger. Could the cables be causing the effect?

If I want to emulate a PS1 game on my laptop and connect it to my CRT, would one of these HDMI to Composite converters do the trick?
>>
>>6555890
No. You, like me, will have to open the fucking thing up, reseat the yoke, and get better placement on the magnetic strips to get the edges correct.
>>
>>6569854
It would, but gross. At least try it on a hacked psp with a cables or something.

When it comes to connecting a PC to a CRT-TV, nothing short of a signal converter + crt_emudriver setup is worth your money or trouble. It's not just the signal conversion

Those cheap cable adapters can at best force a blurry downscale from your native higher resolution, it's not gonna magically adapt your output resolution to what it should be. In short, it's not gonna look nowhere near what you're expecting from a "true CRT TV setup". Might as well just play on your laptop's screen.

If you're determined to get the most of your favorite CRT-TV, here's a few links:

>crt-emudriver guide and list of compatible video cards:
http://geedorah.com/eiusdemmodi/forum/viewtopic.php?id=295

>VGA to Component cables/Transcoder:
- Retrotek VGACTV1 (https://www.ebay.ca/itm/VGA-to-Component-Transcoder-Retrotek-VGACTV1-/192116647418?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true)
Probably the easier one to find. Comes in a nice metal box. Expensive.
- Keep an eye on the eBay seller "linuxbot3000". He doesn't have anything listed at the moment, but he sold a much cheaper and smaller alternative, much better if you plan to keep it inside your PC and not as an additional box.

(I have both. Both work exactly the same)

If you don't currently own a CRT-TV you plan to use, it's easier if you just get a CRT PC monitor and skip all the cable/transcoder issues.

Are there any CRT repair services that can take jobs from around the world?
I live in the Philippines but I wanna get my CRT fixed, but unfortunately, the CRT repair services here are quite shoddy, if they are still around to begin with (and you would only find them in lower-class places because Philippines is a cyberpunk dystopia in real life).

I just wanna get my CRT shipped from the Philippines to the US or UK to get it maintained.

What's the point
>>
>>6570375
Well I saw what he said but I guess I'm asking for clarification purposes because I'm wondering what it is that people used to take advantage of resolutions beyond 480i that many games supported on the consumer end for crt TVs. Was it just something almost no one ever utilized?
>>
>>6570875
Play videogames on it at the right resolution, I assume
>>
>>6570883
But it still won't be the right resolution.
>>
>>6570882

By that point LCD's were beginning to corner the market and HD-CRTs with their 480p support were also available though quickly being phased out by LCD. So that was your options if you wanted 480p.

That would be extremely expensive to ship depending on the size, even a 14inch one would be insanely expensive to pack and ship properly, you could just find another crt for a fraction of the price of even free in that shithole of a country.

>>6554724
I made a PS2 RGB Scart cable and everything with it seems fine, but wherever the color gray is on the screen, i see a snow like effect that is not that visible, but annoying. It is especially visible on the browser/memory card screen as the whole screen is gray. Is this normal? Maybe just a crt thing, as it is visible through a stock composite cable too. The issue persists whether or not i have 220uf caps on the rgb lines. TV is a Sony Trinitron 21 inch that is new to me. Thanks.
>>
>>6571196
thanks for the response. I am using some generic multi-system cable from gamestop that I bought years ago.

It's small (which is not a bad thing if we're talking about old pc games and emulation) and it's 60hz. I'm not sure, but I think my old iiyama was 120hz. Not 60 or 75 that's for sure.

No noise on gray for me using RGB SHART cables without caps connected to a BVM. Might be the TV.

You'll have to remove the front bezel/mask so you can get a good look at the edges of the tube. If there's an anti-glare layer, you'll see it pretty easily. Once you get a bit peeled up you just pull the rest off. Use an x-acto knife to get it started.
I can't help you with the scratch removal stuff because I don't have any experience doing that but there are videos and guides on the net.
>>
>>6572523
I picked this tv up from a garage sale, so the odds that the previous owner tampered with that are unlikely. Is it known if Sony Wegas carried anti-glare filters? Because if so, this one probably would still have it because there's no way the previous owner messed with any of that.

It would if you have crt_emudriver. By my last comment I only meant you could do without a signal transcoder

Not trying to troll, just genuinely curious what the appeal is of playing on a CRT instead of just using a retrotink on an HDTV. The only reason I can think of is the lack of input lag, but I don't even notice any when I play on my HDTV
>>
>>6572531
>Sony Wega
Many do have an anti-glare protective film on them. What's the model? The user manual would probably tell you if it does. Keep in mind that removing the anti-glare sheet will make the screen noticeably shinier. Shouldn't be a problem when gaming in a dark room.
