My wife got me a new 26" Vizio ( VA26L ) for my office to replace a CRT
My problem is I use the CRT for a lot of video review via old analog VCR ( please don't laugh ) Lots of cue/review, etc

Regular playback with the Vizio is OK, but rewind and slow or fast motion is not very good. It looks kinda fake/digtized. I tried various settings without help

Regardless of cost do you have any recommendation for LCD in the 22-26" range that would be best for this older analog pursuit?

Thanks

CRT sets generally have a better picture with low resolution sources.

Your description of what you don't like ("fake/digitzed") isn't descriptive enough. Can you better describe what is different about the LCD than the CRT you are used to?

How do you have the VCR hooked up? (probably doesn't matter but curious)

Thanks;
hooked up via coax at the moment, I thought about composite but hadnt tried it, maybe worth a shot

As far as describing the difference, I'll take a shot. Visually, it's clearly different in some fast forward ( which I suppose I could live with ) but also in a 2x ( 2 times regular speed mode ) which is problematical for me. It's also not as good when I pause and advance frame by frame. Those frame by frame advances are "jumpy,jittery", not as stable as with the CRT. In general, I would say my problem with the Vizio is the jittery effect I see at times. though as i mentioned before, that is not a problem during regular speed playback
I realize this is a problem few will encounter, but I'm trying to find the best small LCD for my purpose. From what I've read on the forum there seems to be good comments re: Samsung or LG

It sounds like the TV's deinterlacing of the content is gettng thrown off when you screw with the field/frame order (which, during FF/RW/pause/step, etc., I'm not surprised). Because lcd panels are not intrlaced crt devices, you will find this to be the case no matter what lcd you pick -- some will be better than others, but all of them will be different than an actual crt.

If emulating interlaced content on an interlaced set is important to you, the easiest and cheapest solution is to use an actual crt (sorry).
