Interesting ... and also logical with the (c)1986 of the ASCII firmware.

However:
* it's difficult to take 1985 as release date for the NT-190. I think it's more related to the production than the release
* the advertisements in MSX-Magazine (Japan) are a good indication of the release date, that is often just one month before (taking in account the time to print the magazine).
* As the previous National/Panasonic product (FS-CM800) was advertised only in 12/86, it's impossible that the FS-CM820 was released in 1986.

I have a question about the row "Emulation" - which emulator is meant? Only OpenMSX or every other, too?

It concerns the most advanced emulators with emulation of specific machines and devices.

As blueMSX is no more in active development phase, it concerns mainly openMSX but don't forget that blueMSX sometimes emulates machines or features not yet emulated in openMSX (example: superimposing/digitization in Philips NMS 8280).

It can be another emulator, especially in the "Almost MSX" section.

I found this monitor/TV from National on mercari which is clearly for use along an FS-A1 (or mk2, F, FM): https://www.mercari.com/jp/items/m81220499696/

It is called the National G1 and comes in black with orange writing.

I also found a brochure for sale showing of the TV together with an MSX: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/v726207957 it seems to be called TH-14G1 in there.

It's the good reference. It's actually a monitor with TV as 'add-on'.

Regarding the PHC-23J(GR). It is just called PHC-23J, the blue variant is called PHC23J(B), I think the wiki should not refer to the grey one as PHC-23J(GR) but just PHC-23J.

For what it is worth the machines have identical BASIC/BIOS/SUBROM (and I updated that in the Wiki). The audio mixer on the machines is different though. The original gray version has a better mixer and SCC/FM/PSG are mixed in right balance. In the blue variant the PSG is louder than the external audio.

I've fixed that. The label on the bottom of the grey machine is indeed without "(GR)".

I think the SCC wiki should be updated with, its true name?
