I'm thinking to buy a TV-LCD. I have seen a Sony of 20" with a resolution of 1024x768. Anyone of you has a LCD and can tell me how "clear" the image is? In the last BCN RU, I saw a MSX connected to a Commodore Monitor and I was amazed to how clear it was!! Simply perfect!! no Blur anymore!!! But as you can imagine I'm considering to buy a LCD instead of an old Amiga monitor...

Any opinions?

IIRC Bodyhammer has a neat 7"-TFT connected to his turboR. MSX-NBNO (quite a well-known MSX group in the Netherlands) showed 15"-TFTs connected to turboRs, on several MSX fairs. Those monitors weren't very clear in text modes, because the resolution was not the optimal resolution for the TFT, and thus the monitor had to apply the stretch feature to cover the whole screen.

I can imagine though, that you could achieve a lot with some kind of upscan device. Good luck anyhow! Smile

The only "bad" thing about LCD screens is that they are not compatible with light guns. So, forget playing DUCK HUNT on your plasma TV!

With TFT monitors/TVs graphics are more "pixeled". Remember the resolution of MSX computers and then check the resolution of your TFT monitor/screen...

I have my TurboR connected to a 17" LCD/TFT Samsung monitor, it has a SVHS input - the picture is lovely!

THe sound quality isnt the best, but the picture is superb!

Your sound quality is probably bad because SVHS doesn't have any sound connectors Tongue

I'm guessing he's using a Scart plug; you know, scart on one side, svideo and composite on the other;probably with connecting the sound using white/red a/v cables...

Carlos Eduardo has a PSOne LCD connected to his MSX, and he presented it on MSXJau'2004. The image is very good, but the bad thing is that the screen is too small, thus text modes become a bit annoying :/ (anyway, for playing games it's very cool).

djh1697, does your Samsung monitor has RGB input? Some time ago I saw 15" LCD monitors with RGB input. Does your monitor get good image quality in text mode? Or does it become a bit blurry? Remember I'm a MSX programmer, so high quality image in text modes is a must for me. Smile

Oh, and djh1697: can you reply my latest reaction about your MG2 problem at, please?

I use a 17" Samsung LCD monitor with S-VIDEO. It works excellent. The screen is more pixelized and it has a little bit of shaddows but I'd definately recommend you to get one.
