    How do those work anyway? Do they crop the image down or do they only work with anamorphic media? Both I guess?
    I'ma move this over here.

    From what I understand, most of them are similar to other HDTVs in that by default it would display the LD image in 4:3, and since laserdisc is not anamorphic that would mean the widescreen image is in the middle of the screen. However, like most HDTVs you do have a zoom function to make it fit properly, and those CRTs should do a better job than a current LCD/Plasma would. That said, I have no personal experience, I stuck with the SD Wega for vidja games.

  2. Maybe you can answer this for me, since I can't seem to find a definitive source. Can CRTs do 720p or do they all scale it to 1080i?

    I'm not totally up on the specifics, but the way I understand it a CRT doesn't really process resolution like a fixed pixel display, so the answer is probably "it does both." Hell, the games on my Raspberry pi are set to output 1500x240 on a SD set, the horizontal resolution is pretty much infinite.

    Maybe IP would have a more detailed answer?

    No. I knew some of that like a year ago. But my mind dumps most of what I don't use.

  5. My last Sony widescreen CRT did both 720p & 1080i. Got rid of it like 7 years ago though.
