I'm driving to Carlow in the morning to collect a haul of 47 famicom carts!
That and buying a copy of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, I can't stretch to another TV as well!

Interesting thread I never knew that there was such a thing as a PVM!

I still have a few normal CRTs, a 29 inch Trinitron like the ones posted earlier, a 28 inch widescreen Panasonic and Philips and a couple of 21 inch Fujtsu PC monitors. Some pics taken years ago below, the cat is long gone sadly but the TVs live.

That actually turned out pretty well! I always did prefer the amber monitors myself. Reminds me of learning to use & type on old IBMs in primary school.

yeah I was lucky really. fully expected to have to do a full recap at least and maybe change the flyback but no it all worked right off
This model had a green and a much rarer orange phosphor version

Finally cracked my 9 inch problem *careful now*

First of all I had 2 problems. I was using the Mega Drive to test, and my normal Sony TV isn't picking up composite signal from that. Apparently it's ridiculous bad and probably has something to do with RF.

So tried my audiophile PS1 on the normal TV and success. A couple of cables later on and I now have 2 of the tiny Sony PVMs successfully daisychained. I was trying to use the standard black composite cables as well as the proper yellow video cables. Even the yellow ones wouldn't work using the Mega Drive so that's where I thought there was a problem. But it's all hunkey dorey now.

Time to make a permanent setup for this now

That is possibly the most amazing thing I've seen in a long time.

Must be easily do-able too.

Apparently you need a couple of Firewire/iLink cables, a Firewire hub, three PS2's, three copies of the game and three decent CRTs.
The Firewire bits would probably be the most expensive, though three 29" Sony Trini's might be hard to store, between GT3 sessions!

It seems you can actually link up to 6 PS2s for GT3 for multilink battles. That would be amazing.

Footprint wise, this would still look pretty excellent across three 14 inch monitors. Hmmm, an excuse to buy two more?

So a mate just got onto me to say one of his work colleagues is trying to get rid of a 36 inch Sony CRT and is wondering do I want it.

105kg in weight. Hmmmm!

Not sure of the aspect ratio. If it's a 4:3 36 incher that's some amount of screen real estate.
