I don't get it! .... on several threads you have mentioned that the flat screen looks much better than your earlier TVs, especially on the Roku streamer and the channels that you could get off the air during various antenna experiments. Why would you drop back to lower quality viewing? If anything, I would use the future death of your 19" Insignia as a good excuse to upgrade to a larger set... 32" to 42" would be much better for your viewing distance (stated at about 10 feet).

just my 2 cents,
jr

In the past week I gained 5 CRT sets .Nothing special. 2 dead and 3 that work good.All with front and back monitor jacks.

The cord clipping ahole was making his rounds and got 4 sets snipped.

19 " stereo TV GE Hospital/Hotel set with FM stereo radio which works great .A 1980's 20 " Stereo Mitsubishi set which is dead. 19 " stereo Magnavox that works great.The other 2 I cant recall the brand but I do remember there was one dead set and the other worked great.

I had to reject a 40" projection set since I dont have a truck to haul it and room to put it.So far that makes it 3 projection sets I could not pick up this year.

I think I'm at about 25 by now. I'm into the aircraft carriers, so I've got 5 of those. Haven't yet got to the point where I've begun 3 dimensional collecting (stacking sets).....

The Hallicrafters set you have is probably a 14" set.
Does the smaller Sony Wega work well? If so, I'm interested.

TVs & radios are pretty much the same as guns to me... Someone will ask how many I have, & I'll just grin & say, "More than I need, but NOT as many as I WANT.." I don't guess any of YOU Wahoos have any idea what I'm talkin' about , do you ?!? (Grin)

You don't mind if I use your answer! It's a very true statement.
