    Our TV is broken. :cry: The green went away. :bugeye: Now everything has a god-awful red hue to it. :yuck:
    So, what do you suggest? Plasma or LCD - and why?
    Oh yeah. What's HDTV? :confused: Does it come in plasma and LCD? I don't like researching this stuff and Ivan (poor baby) is SO busy lately! :frown:
    Somebody help me! :surprised
    Thank you very much. :shy: :redface:

    Oh, do you remember those see-thru colored tv screen covers that they sold back in the late 50's early 60's to put over black & white tv screens to make them "color tv's"? :rofl:

    Just put a green tinted screen cover over your set...problem solved.

    No need to thank me, it's the least I can do. :approve:

    Yeah, the small font isn't very small.

    You can combine it with my old one if you want; the red gun's gone in it. If we put them together, we'll have one big assembly that we can watch 3-D movies on. :approve:

    :frown: yes

    I was going to make a "whine" thread to complain about everything, but decided to spare everyone. I'll call you this weekend. I'll make a pitcher of green apple martinis and we can talk for awhile. :approve:

    Hey drink enough and the tv will start to look better. :biggrin:

    I think plasma is suppose to be better :P

    HDTV is a new "high-definition" standard of television. You know how they always go "watch this program, now in High Definition"... well the cable company (or local stations broadcast) is sending the signal with a higher resolution then you've always been use to so you get better picture quality with better tv's that have HDTV. Without the HDTV reciever however, you don't get it :)

    You can get good LCD or Plasma doesn't matter, just make sure you get HDTV, that is the important part. HDTV is awesome. I'd get a widescreen too, but that's up to you. PS, nothing makes a better Christmas present than a large plasma HDTV

    I don't remember those.

    However, I do remember the Oddysey video games. You could play pong half the day long. If you got tired of that, you could put the semi-see-through green tennis court overlay on the TV screen and play tennis for the other half of the day.

    I recommend the highest resolution HDTV projector you can afford :approve:

    Would cost you less than LCD/Plasma and if you have a nice big wall will give you the bigger picture

    :wink: I remember when those things came on the market. We didn't have a TV yet though because my dad thought that TV would be a passing fad. I remember him saying: "How can anyone get any work done around the house if they sit and watch one of those things all day.":smile: Poor Mom.

    As soon as the boxing matches ,"Friday night fights", were first televised he changed his mind.

    I used to have a set that would do that intermittently. Normal color for a while, then Magenta, then back to normal again. Luckily this was back when they still included the schematics with electronic equipment and I was able to trace the problem and fix it.

    Wow! You COUNT yours, huh? Well, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That's quite a milestone! :rofl: :rofl:

    Sorry if it seemed that I ignored you, dear. I was at work while I was posting and I got called away by a bunch of those pesky sick and injured people in the ER. I swear to god they just show up at the WORST times... :biggrin:

    Thanks to all of you for the info. After googling and checking Janus' links (thanks, Janus!!!!) I've decided I'd rather just dump it in Ivan's lap when he gets home. :surprised :rofl: :rofl:
