With more and more tube-based displays hitting the shelves this forum should come to good use. Nice work.

:p

Huh,...I thought tube based displays are disappearing from the scene and that more Plasma and TFT's are hitting the market.

Did I miss something?

Well, there are certainly more choices for direct-view 16:9 and progressive-scan 4:3 than ever. It's also true that Plasma and other display technologies are gaining market share.

Basically, direct-view DTVs are getting closer to breaking into the mainstream. The cost barriers to getting progressive scan and 16:9 direct-view sets cheaper are mostly artificial. So, I think you'll see those go mainstream, before flatscreen.

If there were sufficient demand (and $200 progressive-scan DVD players and videogame systems just might create one), I think you'd pretty quickly see progressive-scan TVs break the $500 barrier.

I have a thread post on both the release of the Aconda and one on the discontinued F-38310. So far only Matt_Stevens asked about the Anconda and it's slipping down fast because of no responses.


I carefully read and typed all on subject information yet no one is responding. I even used 4 power magnifying glasses that I seldom use to get all the facts. I am on the e-mail me if any responses other wise I will go back to the Soft ware forum. It is a nice forum though, too bad no one wants to repond.

hob,

sorry we're not being too responsive. the forums are a bit of a hit and miss enterprise. i can speak only for myself, but the reason i haven't responded to any of your posts is because i have no idea what you're expecting a response to. if you have questions about the aconda that you're having trouble getting answered, join the club. loewe is the only company i've ever encountered that somehow seems to be interested in making it MORE difficult for their potential customers to buy their product. in all fairness, though, they're just getting properly started in the u.s., so there WILL be better info around the corner when they set up their u.s. website and get some domestic literature out there. anyway, i know a good deal about the aconda from my experiences with it. the only source of information i've found particularly helpful has been this:
www.loewetv.com/models/aconda38.html ...remnants from the old sensory science-maintained website. this will not be a problem in a couple of months when the u.s. company is ready to be more active. i cant wait, because i surely share your enthusiasm for this amazing set. anyway, hope this helps. by the way... what the heck are you talking about with the four power magnifying glasses? context, man. context.

There is a link to the owners manual on that page as well.

yeah, i found that the most helpful. there's nothing like being able to read the manual to give you some idea what quirks you're going to have to deal with in owning a certain tv. the stretch modes are well-explained, but it reveals a very annoying little quirk of the input bracket-- it needs to have the same scan rate through a given input at all times. if you assign 1080i to vga, it's going to always have to be 1080i, otherwise you're probably going to get a pretty bad headache looking at the results. thankfully, i'll be running an htpc so i'll have a pretty elaborate solution to the problem. but this is no j6p tv in the first place...
