CRT TRIVIA no programming or shows just hardware !

No flat panel discussion intended here (well maybe some flatscreen CRT ) that's about it.
Riddles /Answers /sets or broadcast gear/ trivia links /history /video links/images /advertising images or photos of vintage (pre 1966 sets (last of the roundies ) /Triniton tubes /sets history.facts /trivia anecdotal stories,experiencesss images and photos yadda yadda till the end of the Trinitrons . They were the only thing CRT worth talking about for a good while OH we can include the Mitsubishi Diamondtron as well and the RCA invar shadow mask tubes and sets other than these lets try to stick to the oldies


Riddle what is a 15GP22 what does it fit what does it do and where could anybody reliably find one and if so how much working only ?

Hopefully it has something to do with "Direct View (single tube) CRT Displays".

I actually own a 24-in flat-screen SD (4:3) CRT! Alas, it died, and that is when I replaced it with a off topic for this forum. (If really interested, open spoiler below.)

Actually, the 24-in flat-screen SD (4:3) CRT was replaced by a Samsung 46-in HDTV (16:9), which lasted a little over two years and then developed a problem, and at less than 3 years from original purchase date, the Samsung 46-in HDTV was then replaced by my current 50-in Vizio HDTV (16:9).


My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.

RE tubetwister
I remember those I had a 32" 4:3 Sony SD Trinitron Wega and later the 36" 16:9 FD HD Trinitron Wega they were both pretty cool .
Wegas were heavy monsters though ,wouldn't be surprised if the screens were bulletproof , they had the usual Flat CRT baked in geometry issues and sometimes looked a bit odd trying to draw a large circle now and then .


What's a Samson never heard of the guy can't find it on Google either sure you don't mean Samsung ?
lots of those around
