Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I would like to adequately replace a destroyed Sony Wega - a 21" Trinitron of high quality. The "What TV should I get?" thread has utterly failed me; no one providing answers has demonstrated the slightest interest in standard-def gaming performance.
My particular problem is that I'm uncompromising and have rather specific needs:
Will be used exclusively for Playstation 2, Gamecube, Wii; 480i & 480p support needs to be good.
Screen size of 26-32" (~66-81cm) if 16:9 aspect.
Screen size of 21-26" (~53-66cm) if 4:3 aspect.
Widescreen preferred due to Wii (and maybe some DVD viewing on PS2).
Y Pb Pr + S-Video Input(s).
Std-Def picture latency must seem or be non-existant.
Std-Def scaling issues must not exist.
2x Y Pb Pr & 1+ S-video inputs would be nice so I could avoid using a switchbox.
Honestly, a nice Trinitron would fulfill it all but 16:9 aspect (though some do/did exist). My brother has a 26" HD 16:9 Trinitron -- it would be perfect if there were still someplace on Earth that still sold them. I just don't even know where to begin looking for such a device now.
This is why I've been stuck mulling over:
HD LCDs - which all have 480p/i performance as a secondary concern.
PC monitors with analog TV inputs/tuners - which are few and often have scaling issues.
TV-to-VGA/DVI tuner devices - numerous but often suffer from video latency or scaling issues.
