  1. I finally got around to testing an old TV that has been hanging around at school for years: a Sony Trinitron KV-1201.  There's no date code, but this particular model seems to be from the early 1970s.  It hasn't been used in ~15 years and was badly out of adjustment, but with a few tweaks to its many dials, it worked just fine with my 2600!  The picture looks really good, too, even through the crappy switchbox I had to use.

      It looks just like the one shown here:

      Still have my vintage KV-5000. I'd like to get around to restoring and adjusting it back to perfection. It was my first color tv in the late 70's.

      ^ I'm very impressed at how well this TV still works, and I'd love to know what I need to do to keep it that way.  I'm sure it could use fresh capacitors, but I hear that this can strain the other components, and the thought of working inside a CRT (especially one this old) with those high voltages is a bit intimidating.
