    Can a VGA signal work on my HDTV?

    Hello everyone. I have a Sony 30" WEGA CRT HDTV. It has 2 component inputs, and 1 HDMI. I was wondering if there is anyway possible for me to hookup my computer's VGA output to that TV and be able to view a true computer picture? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Why are studios biased in favor of African American shows from the 70s?

    Ok, I have found a strange trend that seems to puzzle me. When it comes to TV sitcoms done on videotape from the 70s, studios seem to have released alot more African American shows than non-African American shows. So far: What's Happening (all 3 seasons), Sanford and Son (all 6 seasons), Good...

    Odd Couple Season 2: When?

    Has there been any news as to when Season 2 of the Odd Couple will be released? As great as the Time-Life Season 1 set was, I'm wondering why they didn't give buyers the same opportunity of buying the complete series all at once, like they're doing with the Get Smart series.

    I've just read on Earl Kress' blog that the up coming DVD set of Magilla Gorilla will NOT include the most popular part of the show, the original opening and closing with that great theme song! Apparently they will only be releasing each individual episode, not the complete half hour shows...

It featured many of his characters besides Ralph Kramden, such as The Poor Soul, Reginald Van Gleason III, Joe the Bartender and many more. Who can forget the ever memorable Frank Fontaine...

    Where's the best place to find Dick Van Dyke Show outtakes?

    I just bought Jack Klugman's book "Tony and Me", and it contains a DVD containing 8 minutes of excellent outtakes from "The Odd Couple". Jack got full co-operation from Garry Marshall and Paramount in securing the rights to show those outtakes. I know The Dick Van Dyke Show DVD set didn't...

    Does anyone make a new 300 or 400 DVD Changer with a FLIP button?

    I currently own 3 Sony DVP-CX875P DVD changers. They DO have a FLIP button that allows you to flip the DVD and will play the other side. Now for some reason all the new DVD changers no longer have a FLIP button. I don't understand this. Don't Sony and the other DVD player manufacturers realize...

    Does HDTV also give off the "strobing effect"?

    Hi everyone. I remember reading that the strobing effect (when someone on the tube is wearing stripes and you can see a moire effect) was a phenomenom that was exclusive to the NTSC standard. However, I've watched a few ballgames broadcast in HDTV on my set, and I can still see the strobing...

    Was the opening music on Penelope Pitstop changed?

    I recently got the Perils of Penelope Pitstop, and I didn't recognize the opening theme as the same theme I remembered the show using when I saw it as a kid. Was the music replaced for the DVDs, or am I starting to forget my childhood memories already? I'm confused. Anyone?

    Any news on The Honeymooners Lost episodes?

    I read a few months ago on a Honeymooners fan site that they were working on restoring the "Lost Episodes" of that show. I know these episodes are all in kinescope form, so I don't really know what kind of restoration can be done for them. I have been holding off from buying the Lost episodes on...
