So just how many hours are on your Marquee tubes now?

Be honest.


I'll start,

I have a month old (to me anyway, was manu in '98 in Canada) 8500 that says 2496 + 216 standby = 2712 total.

All I can say is that if the hours have been reset, it was not by me.


Feel free to chime in with other makes and models, I was just curious from another thread I am in. Show us all how hooked you are to your favorite video photon generator.


side note for beer drinking/video watching conversation......


If genuine German Bock beer has "ator" in the name, would "stigmator" be a good beer? :D

Somehow I just knew a thread like this would pop up :D Okay my shot:


Before reseting the counter:


3051 hours total based on 2956 run hours rest in standby.


After reseting the counter:


308 hours based on 307 run hours, rest standby.


There is a sticker in my Marquee (>I
hours. Since I am never going to sell the beast (the tubes will go into a highly

modded 8500 Ultra later), you don't need to rain on me because I reset the

hours :D


The Ultra has 5731 hours total. As it's torn apart, I can't check the exact relation

of run vs standby hours. However, once it is finished and the tubes from the 8500

go into it, I will also reset this hour counter.


Before you ask, I reset the counters NOT to cheat someone, since I'm not selling

them anyway (no one could pay me the time I put into these chassis anyway). Heck,

I'm even getting another Ultra for more parts. The reason I reset the counter is so

that I can directly monitor how many hours >I

JFYI: If someone really wants to screw someone else via the hour counter, there

is a MUCH easier way to do it (than to figure out the PW).


Regards,

Reinhard

1st Marquee 8000 had 1100 on the tubes, 300 in standbye

2nd Marquee 9000 had 700 on the tubes, 39,000 in standbye

3rd Marquee 8500 had 2700 on the tubes, 17,000 in standbye

4th Marquee 9500 has 3800 on the tubes, 29,000 in standbye


All have been pretty good performers, though I didn't hold onto the 8500 long enough to really tweak it out so I am only guessing about it. The 8000 was the only one that ever had a problem, and it came like that (dead HVPS). Otherwise, I've never had to replace a single part in any machine. Well once I replaced a convergence board in the 9000, but that was only to fix a problem that didn't exist. :rolleyes:

that's just... hilarious! I hope you never put it into standby just so you can keep it like that. You can impress people with that unique counter. You'll pick up tons of hot women. :D
