I saw this beauty of a TV at CES. Rumour has it that it'll be out next quarter:

Looks like the old Montgomery Wards TV we use to have when I was a kid, it was actually pretty cool, you could tune the channels individually, which allowed us to tune in the old Channel 100 !

My dad had an RCA like that one back in the late 80s. My brother is still using it just because it belonged to my dad so he doesn't want to get rid of it. Still going!

You can ask any installer on here & they will vouch to still hooking up these kinds of TV's.
I made a comment in 1 of the other threads regarding the non existence of an rf output on the hopper & joey. Someone responded back saying there would not be any customers with analog TV's signing up for this new service. Who is kidding who, tons of dish customers still own analog TV's. It would be like SOPA & PIPA getting their way, pulling down all porn sites & say "Ok folks we've shut down internet porn & eradicated pedophiles, perverts, wackos & sex addicts". You serious? Oh Thank goodness. :rolleyes:
My analogy probably isn't the best, but you all get the point. Analog TV's will probably be used long after most of us are pushing daisy's.

No, thats not a drawer, just made to look like it.

Can you imagine getting on the floor to get anything in and out of it ....
The SINGLE speaker is directly below the channel tuner section.

You would have thougt they would have put one on both sides, they had room, but they didn't.

There wasn't stereo TV back then, eh? ;)

That looks exactly like the Heathkit color TV I built way back. It had little motors on the channel and volume knob shafts that the remote operated. That was before integrated circuits (ICs). The kit came with bags of thousands of parts and dozens of empty circuit boards and spools of wire.
