DLP TVs came out in 2001. Your model is a CRT TV.
To my knowledge, DLPs in general do not cause seizures, but any large screen or misaligned older TV might do so in a seizure prone person. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosensitive_epilepsy
Television has traditionally been the most common source of seizures in PSE. For patients with PSE, it is especially hazardous to view television in a dark room, at close range, or when the television is out of adjustment and is showing a rapidly flickering image (as when the horizontal hold is incorrectly adjusted). Modern digital television sets that cannot be maladjusted in this way and refresh the image on the screen at very high speed present less of a risk than older television sets.
I would also advise consulting one's doctor on medical questions, and not an A/V enthusiast forum.Edited by Augerhandle - 7/13/12 at 11:42am
