need on it, feel free to contact me.

I was so confused by the array of issues with 36" TV's that I just gave up
on the whole thing. Consequently my family are still watching TV on a 14"
Portable (the main tv died a while ago).

Which 36" CRT TV has the least problems (and the best picture)? I am
looking for anything under 2000, and sound is not important as I intend

to
buy an AV Amp etc.

It is a sad state of affairs when you have to look for the TV with the

least
problems as opposed to the TV with the best quality

I would have considered RP but my room is not big enough to accomodate the
huge screen sizes, and I have a requirement for the TV to be viewed from
quite an angle (which I believe is an issue for RP).

Thanks in advance for your replies -

AK.

Gosh just ten years and: -

1. You would find it almost impossible to buy a [new] CRT TV.

2. HDMI and digital optical out now pretty standard (giving Dolby in the AV
amp) - this had Scarts.

3. Digital rather than analogue receiver.

4. A 32" (equivalent image size to a 36" CRT) TV would now cost you under
200 - a bit more for a Pan'y. In real terms about 10% of the price ten
years ago!



I actually saw one of these vast CRT's (4:3 39"!)~2003. Quite a good
picture (for the time), but boy was it big and heavy, there must have been
claims from the delivery drivers for hernias and slipped discs etc. Even
the 36" was 42kg.

Still listed on Amazon

but unavailable!

I used to have that exact television. It was big enough to include an
internal subwoofer, I think that demonstrates the size quite well!

The picture was better than the £200 Samsung flatscreen my wife uses
now, but my Panasonic plasma eclipses it in picture quality. Mind you: now
I have to tolerate fan noise where the old CRT was almost silent (save
for the 16000Hz tube whine).

I had an earlier 29" Philips MF9021 - great picture especially off D-MAC or
D2-MAC.

Did widescreen well albeit in a letterbox.

Also had a woofer and the native sound was good.

I now have a 42" LG. The SD pictures are no better (because the resoltion
is the same, and because the pixels are larger close up they are visible (OK
from normal distance). The old set had analog terrestial and SD satellite
via Scart. The new one has DTT and Freesat HD built in.

OTOH on HD the new one is far better.

Dolby to the AV amp as well so whilst the built in speaker are basic (OK for
news etc.) the sound is better too.
