    Default Can I use this as an arcade monitor?

    Holy crap I found this old tv in the basement that was given to me a long time ago and I was wondering if it's possible to hook this up to a pc for my new DK cab. This is just a few quick shots.
    It's from 1985 and works great!

    I didn't look into tvs as monitors too much but in theroy you probably could but it wouldn't have the same display as an arcade monitor. People sometimes use tv tubes in arcade chasis so that's a possibility. I am sure Scott can elaborate further...

    Much easier and cheaper to round up a 19" PC monitor and use a arcade to VGA converter.
