    I was just trying to figure out if my 55in Mitsu RPTV would be too much of a drain to use when it is being powered via a portable generator.

    I checked. The only listing for power related to the speakers. But, I will check again.

    It should be on a label on the set also. Usually near the model/serial number tag. Most seem to run between 250 and 400 Watts.

    Waht is the model number? also wht kind of RPTV is this? CRT? LCD? My Syntax Olevia 26" LCD flat-panel HDTV consumes 130 watts - it is right on the box it came in.

    If it's a choice between the 'fridge and the TV, get some ice and enjoy a movie.

    For one hurricane I had 6 house guests including my niece and nephew. There were four children under the age of 6. By day three, I was begging my neighbor with a generator to let them watch a movie or a cartoon for a few minutes. He graciously accepted. It was a nice but short break for all the adults.

    Anyways, the fridge only needs to run for 8 hours per day, so that leaves plenty of time for a movie.
