Model Panasonic PK1. It's a bit difficult at the moment to get the number from the back of the tv as I am actually recording on a connected free view pan. recorder which is fitted under the set and will probably will need to be disconnected [along with the hi-fi system next to it.
It's not rear projection. It's one of the first flat widescreen cathode ray tube sets made. It weighs 55kgms and I needed help when I last moved it. I have a sneaking suspicion the tube is going. Can it be repaired? I have a lot of old vhs tapes and personal family recordings which I doubt very much would be watchable on modern tvs.
Thanks for your advice - greatly appreciated, although it confirmed my worse fears.What size lcd tv [mine is a 32" I forgot to mention] would you recommend? I tried out vhs and dvds on my mother's 32" Hitachi HD ready lcd and they seemed o.k.,but I was thinking of something slightly larger, but unfortunately they are all now full hd. Would that compromise picture quality on standard digital fare? I have a couple of Panasonic combi recorders with upscaling facilities. I would therefore stick with the Panasonic brand for compatability. Should I go for a 40" full hd or a 32" hd ready model?
