I just did a quick search at the Beovision forum and saw your post with only one reply there. So it looks like you are going to need to get a remote of some kind. I'd expect that a universal remote...

You hear the sound of magnetostriction as it is operating. (That's the hum.) You hear it as it is shutting down, too, in reverse. (And this isn't the hum, this is the thing winding down.) And as...

I think I was clear.

Show me one? A consumer television with RGB in the United States of America, before the introduction of HDTVs, is rare.

I sure can, and indeed I already have, before this...

I have never seen one, and it's not for lack of looking either. Do you have a model you can throw out? SCART equipped TVs became hugely popular in Europe since the...

First off, what model Trinitron is this? I can't find any "KV FS20" model by googling. Is it the KV-FS120 perhaps?

Second, you aren't using RGB with your TiVo, you are using component (YPbPr)....

The film plays no role in degaussing whatsoever, degaussing is done from the coil that is wrapped around the tube. Take the rear cover off your television and you'll see it. Degaussing affects "the...

The fact that the tubes are identical between it and the N looms large. There is no safety risk to watching a non-antiglare film'd CRT, so long as you don't do anything stupid. "Anything stupid" in a...

The notion that antiglare film is used in an attempt to boost the stability of the flat face of the tub is very difficult for me to believe. There is absolutely zero chance that the tube in the N and...

I'm thinking you didn't read THIS thread fully. The originator of this thread solved his problem, guess how? By removing the film with 0000 steel wool. With THIS TV. The 960.

I'd reckon any way you can get a pattern on your screen to use, with the kind of input or even with specific devices (i.e. a Wii) you want to use is as good a method as any.
