Thanks, Jim. To get a pleasing picture I'm running the contrast and brightness at 55 - 60. And that's with a 2.8 gain screen.
I asked because mine has 24,000 hours on the chassis. The CRT's have no sign of visible phosphor wear or burn. But if I'm having to run it that much hotter then I suppose that means my tubes are not spring chickens.
