Hi All
My Sony WEGA that I have been using for retro gaming has died.
Does anyone know where I can get a NEW 480i CRT with a component video input?

The only thing I have been able to find on the net are "Multisystem" TVs for sale, but I have no idea how they would be for gaming.
This TV would ONLY be used for retro gaming in my "man cave" BTW. (Saturn/PS2/NeoGeo/SNES/Genesis/PCEngine all connected through Scart -> component or direct component)

I already have a XBR55HX929 in my living room for modern gaming / HT

Anyway, does anyone know where I can find a NEW CRT SDTV
Anyone have any experience with one of those "Multisystem" TVs for gaming?

Recently I got hold of used SONY WEGA KLV-15AP2‏.
It's great little piece of LCD TV that can used with the 15Hz signal - i.e. RGB@15Hz ?
However I had to search for far and wide and eventually found one at the Hard Off and brought it with me from Osaka. Being SONY you can use the multi-media(?) cable from SONY to hook up PS1/PS2 for the better PQ plus it has the Component input although you will be the D4 type adapter to hook up with YUV output.

Not sure whether you can find one on eBay as I didn't bother to check.
