    They aren't electronic, but they are a nod towards a pre-electric age. Our modern technological society has grown from those roots

    So what is the failure mode you see most often with these? The beam control coils, picture tube phosphoresence loss, the receiver, audio, hv supply, electron 'gun'? Or do they just need degaussing?

    Do you still have analog over-the-air available?

    I seem to remember a professor telling me that some older computers did not use a monitor, but hooked up to your television, that might be a good use for mixing both of your older technologies.

    No analog but I do have a set top box that has an RF modulator in it, and btw this thing only needed two resistors to work again

    This belongs to my son. I don't know it's age exactly. Certainly more than 14 years. The radio is still working fine.

    Good bargain eh. I love those old tube tv sets in the console with the radio and record player with the speakers in front, they are just... well I just like them.

    Hahaha, I got a CCTV monitor today it's an old one. It uses BNC jacks, different than the RCA jacks we all know!

    Nathan, here is something I just came across on the IPF (phone that is )

    Shared post from 'iPhoneForums' by Maura from thread 'Apple I Computer Goes for $671,400 in Germany':



    ZDNet reports that a genuine piece of Apple history has just gone under the hammer at an auction in Germany, fetching €516,471, or $671,400. The ultra rare Apple I computer was sold by Auction Team Brekker in Cologne, and is one of just 200 ever built, with probably only 50 remaining worldwide, and only six in actual working order, including this one in Germany. The Apple I was homemade by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, and included all system parts, the original manual, and a letter of authentication signed by Steve Jobs. ZDNet says that it was bought by an anonymous Middle Eastern buyer, who did not want any publicity. The Apple I was originally expected to fetch around $260,000 to $400,000, so the final price exceeded even that higher figure. The same auction house in Cologne also sold an Apple I computer from 1976 last November for the (at that time) record price of $640,000, which has now been beaten by this latest model, of course. Might be worth looking under your bed if you think you might have an old Apple computer stashed away somewhere!

    Thanks to Super Moderator Gabriel1 for the heads-up on this story.
