Should be nice and warmed up now! Haha. In all seriousness though, hopefully nothing burned in or is worse for wear.


#1066

Nah, nothing was bring displayed on the screen. I didn’t know it was even on. It was playing a 480p game last so no 15hz high pitched noise was present.

Try beating the final boss on Jackal for the NES using a Framemeister.

Try getting any further than Mr. Sandman in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for that matter.

I don’t play NES games. It has no nostalgia value to me since I was brought up in the UK were the Master System ruled. I do play games that require good input latency such as Virtua Fighter and the likes of without any problems at all. I will tell you the only time I did notice lag and sold the game because of it. That was Otomious (or whatever it was called) on the 360. It’s a horizontal shooter in 3D by Konami. That game felt so wrong with wired or wireless controllers. Now that was lag. I know it wasn’t the TV or my set up because everything felt fine but that game felt laggy as soon as I started playing.

I’ve even finished Parappa The Rappa via the Framemeister without any problems. Surely that game needs acurate timing?


#1069

Ha, I’ve done it before with my PVM. Walk downstairs…why is the power light o…oh shit!


#1070

I saw this TV on CL, Is that a SCART connector at the bottom? It has RGB adjustments to the right. Wat?


#1071

Yeah looks like it is.

The RCA Dimensia TVs had a SCART Port. It was called “EIA Multiport” on it, but it was still wired as a full Euro SCART

sauce


#1072

That’s a crazy back panel: I particularly like the External Speaker connectors as well! Plus S-Video? You should just buy it for $20 to check it out, would make for a cool little project. PLUS WOOD PANELING!


#1073

Ha, I was kind of hoping it wasn’t so I wouldn’t be interested. Ugh, no room though. Also not too keen to drive over the pass anytime soon with snow at sea level now.

@Vespa love the “remote size of a small pizza” comment in that thread, haha.


#1074

I need to see this remote now!


#1075

Wow! Super cool find!


#1076

I have a problem.

I bought another 32fv310 as a…spare? Maybe I’ll stack 2 fv310s side by side for street cred.


#1077

You can never have enough CRTs!

Now if only I could convince everyone else in the house of that…:thinking:

Great score though! 32" is just about the perfect size; just big enough to throw your back out while moving and plenty of screen space to play lightgun games while you are in physical therapy!


#1078

:joy:


#1079

Can’t imagine how cool it must be to play on a good 32inch CRT. It’s bern forever since I played on one that big and even then the best I had was composite.

It must look awesome


#1080

@Bozo_Cyborg Now that I have 2 identical crts I’m thinking of making a rig to deadlift both of them. I think it would make a fun video and it’s something everyone always jokes about

@Peltz I’m sure you’ve seen some of my pics before. Imagine a 32" pvm and that’s the fv310 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


#1081

Are the FS models not worth picking up if an FV is an option for a few bucks more.


#1082

From this amazing Facebook group


#1083

Oh man, that’s kinda cool! Small pizza indeed lol


#1084

I’d pick up any set with component if it was in good shape (strong picture, good physical condition). I’d choose the FV though if it’s either/or.
