This 1.25" CRT unit used with the big screen magnifier and a powerful set of binoculars kills my 8500. While watching the Broncos game last week I felt like I was on the field!

Are you projecting it onto a 4" screen?? Very Happy Otherwise I'd think it would be so dim you couldn't see it, binocs or no...

Or are you using the binocs to look AT the CRT??? Laughing

Not really... *That* TV - the TR-1020 - was B&W. That's what I remembered and was asking about. Looks it wasn't until a couple of years later, the CT-101 was color.

Travelvision is the name given by National/Panasonic for its "mini TV" with a 1.5 inch (35 mm) screen diagonal. The beginning of this production series is the TR-1000 with conventional cathode-ray tube, followed by five additional models. This Panasonic TR-1010 can be compared to the Sinclair MTV1 in terms of size and screen diagonal, however it lacks a multistandard tuner. In 1984, the TR-1030 and the CT-101 (with a color CRT screen!) close the era of the tradition of "cathode ray tube television sets" by Panasonic. Later on, large quantities of LCD TVs will follow, all coming with a so-called active matrix display.


Hard to believe it took until 1984 for a small color TV to hit the market!

If you look down that page a little further to 1985 or 1986, my old man had one of those Casios. I think it was the on with the mirror. It seemed so amazing at the time. I imagine he still has it in some drawer somewhere.

I forgot to mention the chest pumping 1.5" speaker. This baby boasts a .25mm peak to peak travel. Picture if you will, the old memorex tape advertisment. The one with the guy sitting in the chair with his hair blowing back. I have to be very careful with the volume control!

Does anybody have a guess what the anode voltage is? It has 4 AA's in series for 6volts with an inverter I'm sure.

I am calling this a rear projection tv when the big screen adapter is used.
