After adjusting the color controls on the RCA 21CT55 the past view days, I think we have better color images. I took a slew of screenshots and the full size images can be seen here: https://visions4netjournal.com/vinta...e_preview=true

Your screen shots look great! Too bad you included some screen shots of Trump. This is not a political forum.

Thank you for the compliment. Never intended the post to be political. If it makes any difference, we posted a screenshot of President Obama on the 21CT55 on my website. Equal time. No affiliation either way.

Many who had a hard time putting up with the last guy, can't help but smile and laugh at those that can't manage to put up with the current guy. Reversals can be refreshing, and enlightening!

I didn't vote for either of those idiots. Clinton and Trump are both terrible people; you have to be in order to get involved in politics. That said, he is our president and I don't see how posting a screenshot of the inaugural is political. We're going to be seeing too damn much of the man, better buckle up and get used to it now.
Also, from the interaction I've had with etype2, I doubt very much this was a political statement one way or another.

I apparently offended at least one member so I removed the photos in question. I really never thought of the photos as being political, but I can see how someone might think that. To me it was an historical moment and for my own use, I wanted to preserve that moment, live as it happened.

I would very much prefer comments on the screenshots as captured from a 62 year old color television.

The set appears to be working wonderfully, and your excellent photography skills have captured it in all it's splendor.

The WORST political posts are the False Equivalence ones where everyone is viewed as the same. Never thought we'd have to bear such here.

Thanks Sampson 159.

Thanks Kevin. Still not satisfied with the green, better but working on it.

With no ability to freeze the images at the moment, I just click away and the majority have movement, blurry, etc. A few shots come out okay.

etype2 asked us to keep the posts related to the set itself, and most of us have since he asked. You might give it a try...

etype2, the green still looks weak to me, but it could be something about your camera, my monitor, or my eyes. Color vision is a surprisingly difficult thing to describe in a very general, quantitative way. Regardless, the set is 99% there. Very, very nice set; I'm green with envy

Thanks Ben. It's not your eyes, the green is not vibrant. The flower shot with the butterfly is about the best so far. It depends on the program. Technicolor seems to look the best. The green gun has good emission. I'm working on improving it.

Edit: Adding. The green glass oil lamp behind Robert Mitchum in El Dorado, should look more vibrant. More often then not palm trees look more gold then green. Have to improve this.

Lack of green really gives it that "tan cowboy, riding the brown horse into the orange sunset look"...Of course I tend to set up my sets so the blacks favor a mild green tint and the greens are strong and vibrant....When I watch a show with green grass in the winter I want to believe I'm looking at the fresh emerald green grass of spring.

Tom,

I understand that point of view. Having lived in Wisconsin the first 33 years of my life .... in winter, the shades of grey and cabin fever. NO GREEN!
