Not being satisfied with the performance of my HDTV with standard definition signals of my vintage systems, I did another change to my system.  There are video monitors on both sides of the room.  One side for HDTV and the other side for standard definition NTSC.

For the computers on the desk, there are three.  One is an old Dell Optiplex with Windows 98SE for older DOS games.  The other Dell is a Dimension for Windows XP.  The other is a self-built machine running Linux Mint 12.  The computer I use most often, however, is my Apple MacBook Pro.



One side of the room has an HDTV and has 7.1 digital surround.  Video sources are CED, VHS, SuperBeta, LaserDisc, Video CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray Disc.  For games, it has a PlayStation 2, XBOX, XBOX 360, and PlayStation 3.


The other side of the room is for NTSC.  It can play Super VHS, LaserDisc, Video CD, and DVD.  For games, it plays Atari 2600, Atari 7800, NES, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Mega LD, 32X, Super Nintendo, CD-i, 3DO, Atari Jaguar, Atari Jaguar CD, Sega Saturn, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo Gamecube, and Sony PlayStation 2.

UPDATE

The Sharp Aquos 32" LCD HDTV was replaced with a Sony Bravia KDL-32EX500.

Now I can enjoy my HD content at 1080p. On top of that, the HDTV is a Sony.

Wow! Great setup. You must've had every game platform possible. Way to go Reinhart.

Enjoy!

Is that an impressive Sony G400 (maybe G500) I see connected to those computers?

Those venerable Sony Trinitron CRTs are great for gaming.

No TurboGrafx! :-p


That's what I'm hoping to get someday, specifically either a Pioneer PAC-N10 or a TurboDuo.

And, hopefully, I'll get myself a Sega Power Base for the Genesis.

Oh, and the monitor is a CPD-E400.

More changes.

I've installed a Sega Genesis CD-X and popped a Sega Power Base Converter onto it, so now I can play Sega Master System games on my setup.

In addition, I've managed to secure RGB cabling that allows me to hook up my Genesis CD-X and Genesis 2 to my Sony PVM monitor via RGB, so now I can play Master System, Genesis, Sega CD, and 32X games with the best possible picture.

I performed an s-video modification to my JVC X'Eye, which is a combination Sega Genesis and Sega CD system similar to the Victor Wondermega 2.  That system has also been installed.

I also replaced the four KLH 900B bookshelf speakers with four Optimus Linaeum bookshelf speakers.

The computer desk has a widescreen LCD monitor by Samsung and a fourth computer: a Power Mac G5.
