Just thought I'd start a new thread since the last one is getting a little off topic. I get overly excited when I see another reply to that thread so I started a new thread that will only pertain to the streaking. This way I can get overly excited again when MP replies to this one each time!

:D

I'VE RECENTLY COME TO THE REALIZATION THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE CLIFFY AND THEREFORE I AM HAPPY WITH JUST ONE G90! and an RS1 shhhhhhhhhh!

Mike, Is this fix solely confined to the neck cards?

Please Mike, we are at your mercy :D

Face/Off last night was very very bad in the greyish prison scenes, the streaking was so bad it isn't funny

When will D* stop pushing HD-Lite while charging us for full HD? Digital input on a CRT is a reality, not a possibility.

I don't know about you guys, but my streaking problem was COMPLETELY fixed after MP told me to stop going outside naked! AMAZING results! :D :D

AAAAANYWAY...... so what's the REAL scoop? I have mild streaking on my NEC as well, though mostly visible during credits.

Is streaking during the credits defined as a horizontal "shadow" that extends from one side of the letters to the end of the screen, or in some cases to both ends of the screen? Thought that was fixed with better cables?

I'm pretty sure we are all talking about streaking, as a bright image , then trailing to the right over a darker background, but not black background .

Another test to use for streaking is to put up a dot test pattern - if you can see horizontal lines connecting the dots up on the screen, you have a bad case..

Turn contrast all the way off - brightness all the way up and look at the tubes - you may not have streaking on the screen but if the dots are connected with horizontal lines, then you still suffer from it..

In my case, the lines are not visible on screen even with credits but are there on the tube faces..

MP says the fix will improve every CRT that has it regardless of how much you see on screen..

so Mike come on..we're waiting..:)

Just a guess but as most report the problem in bright objects against a black background that it would have something to do with the neck amplifiers inability to cut off the electron beam as cleanly as it comes on. But that's just a truck drivers opinion. I don't use a scope. I lick each index finger, I touch one finger to the chassis and the other to the appropriate test point and close my eyes.

Chip

PS I shouldn't say things like that. Someone might think I'm serious...
And try it.

Mike that depends, I can solder pretty well, if it's a really really tiny tight spot, I might not be able to do it, I would just have to see first

Thanks

Am I missing something?
