>Try to keep things /vr/ related: Focus should be on 5th Gen (+Dreamcast) 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.

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

Got it at least 7 or 8 years ago now. 480i can certainly be retro, I recently played Chrono Cross which uses 480i for all the menus and status screens, as well as FMVs. The character models looks great at that res and were honestly giving N64 a run for its money at that point.

Also recently finished Skies of Arcadia for the umpteenth time. One of my favorite games of all time, and the graphics hold up really well. Definitely some of my favorite 3D of its era.

Had to play this game in S-video because it's one of like 5 games in the entire Dreamcast library that only outputs at 31khz in VGA/RGB mode. Almost decided to play it on my computer monitor instead, but meh, I'm lazy. S-video is pretty slick, anyway.

They are pretty damn nice. I've been trying to track down a stand for my FV310 for a while now and while I've seen 2 pop up they were both trashed. At this point I'd be willing to take a FV300 or FS320 with the stand and then just dump the TV in a ditch somewhere.

I am now determined to get an SED or FED display. I've proven myself able to do such impossible things before, and I'm sure there's gotta be a number of them just sitting in some warehouse somewhere. iirc cannon got really close to market of commercial monitors, and perhaps I'm mistaken but they were selling them for the broadcasting scene. Maybe the don't have them anymore, but if they did sell to pros in the states then there's gotta be a chance to get my hands on one. Cold calling is my initial attempt, but if any other anons have any ideas on how to get one I'm all ears. Cannon is the place to start I guess.

I'm fairly certain, yes. Last year I spent a lot of time researching SED/FED development and the timeline of it. Even by the time they were demo'ing them at conventions the factory yields were still pathetic and I don't recall ever coming across anything saying that they were being sold. The closest to that was mention of prospective markets in the medical field.

What’s the two small holes “screen” and “focus” for? And all the stuff by the plug

>> No.6020336

Screen is your g2 voltage. It basically sets the lower level of the black point, but it's a bit more complicated than that. Focus is for setting the focus of the electron gun, this generally needs to be tweaked for older sets. The stuff by the plug is for adjusting the gain and bias, which is the individual levels of the guns at the black point and white point. The other two are horizontal and vertical hold, this is adjusted if your image is off center or vertically rolling. Hope that helps, someone else will chime in if I'm mistaken on any of this.

I felt like it might be the kind of game that would be good on a flat panel since its not really about fast reflexes, has lots of static dialog screens etc but when I tried it thru an OSSC I wasnt feeling it even though the interlace is less visible that way. 480p via gsm breaks the frame limiter too so thats out

Why are you lying? There’s only a handful of poorly programmed games with this level of baked in lag. Sadly SMW is one of them, but it’s still way under 1f/16ms of latency.

>> No.6021442

I owned the same model for a while and it's mediocre specs wise while being kind of shit tube wise. The dynaflat tubes that samsung made are some of the worst flat pc monitors you'll find. They've got a terrible lens effect towards the corners where it's extremely evident that the inside of the tube is curved. If it's cheap then I wouldn't let me scathing review discourage you, go try it out especially if you don't already have a PC monitor. Just remember that they're generally a lot better than that.

>> No.6021673

I stand corrected, SMW has two frames of baked in latency, but it sure feels very responsive, much more so then emulating it. Doesn’t change the fact you were being disingenuous with the generalization that real hardware has that much lag. Like alread said, only a handful of games have that much baked in lag. SMW was an extremely rushed game, quite possibly the shortest development time for a main Mario game at less than 12 months. And despite that fact it’s, imo, the best Mario game Nintendo ever made. 2 frames of built in latency or not.

Yes, HD CRTs provide that beautiful lack of scanlines and shitty up and downscaling that brainlets like yourself enjoy.

>> No.6021707

A 32FS170 would be as good as any other standard definition wega but what you have in that picture is not an FS170. It's not even an NTSC set, that's a PAL TV in the picture.
Screen wobble with VHS could just be an issue with the VCR, hard to say if it's an issue with the PVM itself or not without testing another source. As for that NEC, which one is it? The FE772 is a mediocre 17" and the FE992 is a mediocre 19", but I'd take either over the Samsung especially at that price.
The FS170 isn't HD and neither is the set in that picture. The widescreen set in that picture is probably 100hz.

If it's in good condition then absolutely. 110khz is when monitors start getting good, you can push some nice refresh rates with that and it's a bigger monitor. I had a 21" curved viewsonic that was 110khz for a while and I really enjoyed it. Dot masks are the og look for PC games imo.

Dude, all of this shit is 20+ years old at this point. There is no "inherent advantage" to any CRT, other than how much or how little abuse it has seen. You have to test stuff in person. It is like the single most important rule to buying CRTs. Literally the ONE rule. Even stuff that should be better on paper might actually suck a a ball and a half because of how fucking rek't it is. Even if that XBR48 was touted as a better TV by the pope himself, it's up to YOU to go take a look at it and see if it actually is, because you don't know what kind of shit that fucker has seen. Could have been owned by a blue-haired old lady who kept it on 24/7 to keep the oppressive, deafening silence from claiming her will to live. You never know. Unless you don't actually love your current TV for some reason, I wouldn't stress over it.

>monster brand component cables with gold plated connectors for $149 with special meme sheath
>"I can feel the warmth and crispness that you just don't get with other cables. Other plebs cant tell but I have a gift for this kind of thing"
It is a type of mental illness and companies with good marketing (monster and HD retrovision) are there to exploit it.

If you look back at the arcades in the 80s and 90s they completely outclassed anything you could get in the home. If you crack open an arcade machine you will see they use absolute vanilla wires coming off their JAMMA harness. These are your color channels, your audio, your power, everything just bound together with cable ties and it works perfectly fine. There is nothing exotic at work here.

Component is more or less in the same boat, it really hard to fuck up, even for the Chinese. Some multi-system ones do manage to fuck this up though.

Now SCART? That actually needs shielded cables or you get buzzing and interference between your audio and video, especially with a lot of white backgroudns or white text on display. Cheaper cables are fine as long as they are shielded, but the aliexpress specials are to be avoided.


Always avoid the most expensive and the least expensive options when buying cables for anything. The moderately priced middle of the road options will never let you down.

>> No.6029317

While that projector is nice I'm not sure it'll give you a nice 1080p image. It can certainly sync to it, but the tubes might not be sharp enough for it.

Forgot to mention, on one switcher, the image gets output as black and white.
On the other, I get no image at all. Leads me to believe it may be a sync issue since S-video standard is sync-on-luma and the S-video game cables that also have composite output use sync-on-composite.

Supposedly the green board has an issue, wouldn't be too surprised if it's something like caps or convergence, but I'll figure it out.

Here's a fun fact.
I was searching through some of my old stuff and found family VHS. Luckily I had bough a working VHS playter some time ago, so I tried hooking it up to a modern LCD. Now, this tapes are pretty old as you would imagine, so they're somewhat damaged by time and nature.
To my surprise the tapes where completely unwatchable on the LCD even though we heard sound. So I tried hooking it up to my CRT TV and, lo and behold, we could actually watch and navigate the tape. I found the recording of my parent's wedding and played it for them, we had a pretty good time.
I'm guessing the problem here lies with the fact the tape is somewhat damaged and the VHS played is contantly switching between no video signal and 480i, making it completely unwatchable because it can't switch fast enough or process the distortion properly, even if that sound weird.
So yeah, we had a fun family moment all thanks to CRTs. Pretty cool.

Hi guys. I was wondering if you could help with an issue I have with my CRT TV, in case you happen to have heard of this or seen it before.

It is a TV/VCR combo by LXI. I got it from a friend who took good care of it and it worked perfectly and even played VHS tapes just fine until...I put in this one vhs tape, a brand new retail one, and now it turns off a few seconds after I turn it on without fail, as shown in the webm clip.

I don't do this in the clip, but of course I tried to press eject before and during the few seconds it's on and the eject button does not register. The eject button works fine because I was able to eject tapes before this one, but essentially it doesn't have a chance to register the function before it turns off, or the limbo state the tape has given the TV doesn't allow the function to work otherwise.

I looked up the issue a lot, and basically because the parts for the TV and the VCR use the same power source, the VCR gets overwhelmed from the VHS tape for whatever reason, either because it's stuck or because it's at the end, and so it shuts off instantly, preventing me from even just using it as a TV (which is all I really want it for anyway) and just as importantly I of course do not have a chance to eject the tape to solve the issue. A subtle issue because technically the TV itself works fine, but there may not be a work around without opening the thing up which takes serious knowledge and safety protocol.

One poster said to leave it unplugged for a week so the fuse could recharge, which I tried and it may have kept it going for a bit more than 6 seconds, but still it shuts off and I can't eject the tape.

I thought to pry the tape out of course, but according to one forum post I read the TV would still be in its confused mode, so really the only way would be to properly eject the tape which of course I can't do.

PS: The tape is Nosferatu, the silent German Dracula horror film from 1922. Based cursed VHS tape ruining my CRT TV.

OSSC. Like, not even trying to shill, I was just honestly surprised how similar it is for 480i when I recently got a CRT. I switched to the CRT because it still wipes the floor with my LCD for motion, blacks, colors, has good speakers in it, etc.

This is another thing, not even plasma TVs ever got as good blacks. OLED is pretty close though from what little I've seen on my dad's TV.
>Resolution switching not being smooth is a meme and totally dependent on your set. A TCL 4 series will even do it instantly
I know its an edge case, but Killer Instinct and RE2 on N64 switch resolution midgame. Wouldn't any TV still black out for a bit, even if it's instantly? I hear that the OSSC still takes about 1 second to resync, but I hear the Retrotink2x does it in less than 1 second. Been thinking of getting one of those just as a backup if my PVM dies and they get too expensive to replace.

>> No.6036019 [DELETED] 


I haven't tried it with anything like that, just the usual PSX stuff that has 480i start screens and menus, so it's not an issue there, but my TV has never flashed a "no signal" screen at me and it's not at all high end

This. Anyone who complains about the OSSC's bob deinterlacing has clearly never actually used a CRT, because it looks fucking identical, especially with alternating scanlines. I use mine with a CRT PC monitor and it's great.

The OSSC resyncs instantaneously. Any delay you experience is purely due to your display being slow.

Last year on the December 24, 2018 I randomly decided to play Blue Stinger. A game I had when I was a child but never really got far in. The game takes place on Christmas Eve 2018. It was incredible. I didn't beat it until the next day, but the story also rolled over into Christmas day.

Thinking about my options here. I'm this anon
I'm just considering whether it is better for me to stick to my wii component emulation setup, or play with original hardware. The difference is that all my consoles are set with s video except for the nes so I'd have to spend a bunch on either an rgb converter and scart cables, or HD retrovision cables. I could spend no money and keep emulating but I have no good ps1 option for component there, and it isn't the same when I've spent money on everdrives and ways to play on original hardware for the snes, genesis, etc. Anybody else primarily emulate on wii through component?

Free McBoot is easy, I realize it only provides pretty hacky ways of running PSX stuff but depending on what you want to play, basically like.. Anything that POPStarter will just play, no issues, use that as your first option, particularly if it's a redbook audio title. If POPStarter won't run it and it's a data-only game, just get a copy of THPS2 or Vagrant Story (biggest file size) etc and use PSXLauncher. There's a pretty small list of games that won't be viable with either of those two methods, i've had a lot of success thus far this way.

You mean semantically, or is there another factor I'm not aware of?
Doesn't this mean having a TV with a very good game mode, or a gaming monitor with less than 10ms of input lag, will get the job done as well as CRTs for games requiring high precision?
I'm simply asking because I want to find something as close to a CRT as I can for my modern consoles with only HDMI output.

>> No.6037642

Don't worry about it, any moderately high-end monitor will have literally unnoticeable differences in lag to you. Televisions are different, be careful buying modern televisions, but even then it's mostly disabling video processing shit (enabling 'game mode')

To your question, in such a context, crts and LCDs are very different display technologies and comparing them with one narrow metric is apples and oranges

>> No.6037643

>modern consoles
wtf are you doing here

>> No.6037649

This doesn't take into account scalers for SD consoles so it's completely fucking pointless for most people to consider. An LCD TV is absolutely going to be laggier than a CRT TV because it has to deinterlace and scale the signal before being displayed. You could use an external scaler like an OSSC which works well but there's other reasons to use a CRT aside from input lag.

>> No.6037671

Yes within 2ms of difference not even long time CRT owners can notice a difference. Keep in mind original consoles which you are likely to be using with a CRT have at least 2 frames of lag (more than 25ms) but with emulating you can get lag to be as low as one frame. Kind of cool how this is all still brand new technology getting better every month. The magic of CRTs is being destroyed by the progress of technology right in front of our eyes.

Retard, the underlying there of your reshitera post of that 'input lag' is ill-defined, and input lag means different things between a scanning electron gun vs a dot matrix, sample and hold display. To compare them directly you have to be way more fucking specific than 'input lag' and I'm not going to spoon-feed you because it's complicated

>> No.6038581

Keep in mind that a lot of low IQ types, who don't have brains that work fast enough to even follow the action on screen, don't understand that people like CRTs because of the inherent qualities of the display, which includes perfect motion. LCDs are pretty awful for gaming and this is inherent in the technology. They are good at putting an enormous image that doesn't move much up on a wall.

They're good for that stuff but still limited in resolution to 1080i or 720p. Some modern consoles don't output interlaced at all so you're stuck with 720p. I think the PS4 does do interlacing still though. But you'd be better off looking for a super fine pitch model, those are much sharper and nicer.
Plex doesn't support 480i on the PS3. UMS is the best option in this case.
