I'm just saying that this thread is an infomercial for his business and that's not appropriate here.
Well, since it doesn't seem that way to the folks that matter at AVS, what is considered "appropriate" isn't up to you to decide.
The info and support in this thread has helped thousands of people keep their TVs going just a bit longer. This is huge and VERY "appropriate" in todays society. It is also let known that should anyone want to take it further, it will cost. People ask all the time so it is wise and keeps clutter to a minimum on the board when all people want is to find out how much for Bob to do it.
Valuable info here with years of experience. Nothing is "magical" in a cleaning and you are the only one to lnfer it is. These sets were designed to last 10+ years and the reason the cost was so high. New sets have a shorter life expectancy and therefore cost less.
i have a toshiba 65" CRT that has been ISF'd in the past and is up for a cleaning and a tune up. The guy I am talking to about doing the work (the previous guy no longer does calibrations) has suggested that in addition to cleaning, greyscale, focusing and convergence, I change the screen for a da-lite or stewart screen (about $400) and add a DVDO Edge processor ( $400). We watch mainly hd satellite and BR DVD. Does any one have any experience with either suggestion or an opinion on the value of the upgrades?
Absolutely not in my opinion. What model Tosh? I have a 51H83. Just remove the glare screen and the picture will 'pop' like you won't believe. As much as I like CRT, I would in no way put $800+ into one (Sorry Bob!) and I suggest you do not either. You can clean it yourself and tweek the settings easily enough as all the instructions are in this thread.
