Finally got around to getting a new TV. Not a flat panel TV (note that these days flat screen means a CRT TV with a flat screen face while a flat panel TV means LCD or plasma display) but a Toshiba 20″ flat screen with DVD player. I must admit at this point that my old Sony TV has a better picture as it had a smaller dot pitch (those little spots of image on the screen). I may have to get a new RF cable and/or connector as this TV shows more electronic noise than my Sony set.
But this set does have a headphone jack on the front so I can blow my ears out while keeping the neighbors at peace. The DVD player appears to work well. The TV was not much over $200. I can’t see spending the money on an LCD/Plasma TV until it gets cheaper.
