/CRT/ GENERAL: no one made a new thread edition

Previous thread: >>8315908
>Try to keep things /vr/ related: Focus should be on 5th Gen (+Dreamcast) (6th gen will never be retro) games on back. Slight off topic is fine so long as it's related to CRTs, such as later 16:9 models, HD models, etc. Systems with backwards compatibility are also safe territory, as are re-releases on newer hardware. PC CRTs are also welcome and appreciated.
>Produce OC! Bust out your camera and take photos of your CRTs displaying all sorts of games, featuring all sorts of tubes, using all sorts of signals. Getting good shots can be hard, but if you take enough, at least a few will turn out alright.
>Try and give as much information as possible when asking for info on a specific set, or troubleshooting an issue to expedite and help you may receive. As always, Google is your friend and we are your friends with benefits. Do people read this? Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either; Seriously, there's literally 6 years of backlog at this point.
>Share appreciation for other's choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. Always remember to show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Limited discussion of video processing and scaling devices is alright, but remember to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories.

isn't this the CRT thread? >>8362142

4+ late 00's Trinitrons being sold or given away in my area but I can't get any of them because I lost my fucking license, and my only way to get and transport the TVs refuses to let me get them.

>>8362251
If you’re a thirdworlder, yes.

>>8362252
Get a uber
>>
>>8362252
lost as in misplaced, or lost as in revoked?
if the former just go get it anyway.

>Also even with it's higher end TVL it still has a pretty big pitch for its size and a shadow mask, so it's perfect for 240p without making it look too sharp and full of scanlines.
Lol

Public transport, I've carried many huge and heavy CRTs like that
>>
>>8362257
>>8362272
I would do public transport, but it's a good hour between the nearest bus line and my home. Living in the deep woods is a bitch.
>>8362259
Revoked for medical reasons. Nearly died before it happened, so I doubt I could even drive illegally even if I wanted to.

I need to repair a CRT's housing. How likely am I to die by electricution when removing/replacing the housing?

I'd love to get one of those Super Famicom TVs, but shipping one overseas seems like it would be a huge gamble.

Now to post this in the right thread.

Bought my first CRT, a Toshiba MD20P1 that's in excellent shape. Should be arriving Tuesday. Hoping it's not a lemon, but the seller seemed like a decent guy and the pictures made it look in good shape. I would have loved to pick up one of the many free Trinitrons on Craigslist or FB Marketplace, but lack the space for one.
>>
>>
>>8365416
Hmm good starting point anon! Should be a great set for NES and video, it's composite/coax only so you'll be kinda limited from getting the best out of later consoles
>>
>>8365520
Yeah, planning on SNES via RF and PS2 and N64 via composite. I'm curious if my ancient speaker system will work if I plug it into the frontal headphone jack. Pretty hyped all in all.

>>
>>8365730

Man I love this sharp super famicom TV. Is this the 14inch version? I have the 21inch one.
>>
>>8365939
Are those the panties from the Prinny 2 LE? Fucking beyond based if so.
>>
>>8365956
No, they didn't give them out in the Prinny 2 LE, they gave them out in the contest to design her panties.
But yes, those are Etnas panties.
>>
>>8365971
I remember that contest now that you mention it. Did you win in that case, or was it a general prize for participating?
>>
>>8365974
3 winners, 50 random participants, and they gave a few out at some press event.

But no, I didn't win, I did participate though, but I managed to get them off ebay some time after the contest, in the original packaging... Haven't seen another show up on ebay since.
>>
I remember seeing a link to a CRT adjustment guide on a recent CRT thread. Am I going to get myself killed trying to do it, or is that something that only happens to retards?
>>
>>8365939
dam thats a nice tv for a disgaea fan
>>
>>8366214
I've got two Sony Trinitrons that go into PS2 kiosks as well, and a widescreen Sony Triniton, as well as a 14" PVM
>>
>>8366006
You'll be fine, just stay away from the anode cap.
>>
>>8366219

>>8362261
Wtf anon I have the same setup but my ps2 is on the left. I have a comfy beanbag too.

It's more that they're part of the kiosks, and the widescreen has been my TV for games when I was growing up.
The PVM? Yes, definitely.

>>8362498

>>8365985
The real question is are you down with the dfc? Also, did you get >>8366242 displays at a good and reasonable price?

Dood, did you see my pictures? I wouldn't have all this Etna stuff if I wasn't really really into Etna.
As for the kiosks, some of them have been a while, let's see... I got the PS2 kiosks years ago, I think I paid 150 euros for each of them? I got a bunch of spare parts for another one of the blue PS2 kiosk when I got that one.
The PSP game shelf, I think I paid 100 for two of them, 150 for the PSP kiosk, I think 100 or 150 for the DS one?
50 for the PS2 game shelf, probably like 80 or 100 for the PS3 shelf.
I think I paid around 400 for the super famicom TV, 300 for the super famicom box.
I paid way too much for the PSP countertop kiosk, but it's pretty rare to find here, and i got it new in box..
I think I paid 350 or 400 for the smaller 3DS kiosk and 250 for the huge 3DS kiosk.
The recent Wii U kiosk I got was probably the most expensive one so far.
I think I got most of them very cheap? I'm not 100% sure what they're all worth, I just know how often I get the chance to buy them, and usually the price I got them for is lower than what they sell for most of the time.
