indie games made by straight people: "A desolate interactive dream about a man searching a mysterious island for the girl he once loved... or did he? I poured six months of my heart and soul into this. Please enjoy."
indie games made by queer people: "heres a game i made about a poly triad of neon trash skeletons who like to spray acid piss on fascists. made it in five minutes for ludum judum jammy jam 891. fuck off terfs"
the other thing this results in is that the video ground point is at 5.5V too, but the audio input ground still needs to be 0V. a ground loop isolator on the audio input cured it - trying the same isolator on the video side trashes the signal. coils are weird i guess.
TV in question is a dutch market Philips X24T681. judging from the date codes on the exploded safety caps i had to replace, it was made somewhere in late 1969 or 1970.
it has an uh, "unusual" design where the composite video coming from the radio section is biased by a chain of three dropper resistors that create a 5.5V supply for the rest of the set to use.
in practical terms this means any video signal you put in needs to be amplified somewhat, at the moment i'm using a headphone amplifier
this does need an isolation transformer though as these old valve TVs are AC/DC and have a internal ground potential of 230V.
if you connected without having the TV on an isolation transformer it would short circuit and destroy both the tv and whatever you plugged in
analog tv is very degraded by the multiple steps of conversion involved in broadcasting and reception. since analog tv broadcasts end, vintage TVs have been stuck without a signal source except for very cheap and shitty RF modulator boxes
by removing the TV tuner, radio frequency amplifiers, and radio to signal converters, i can feed the video and audio sections a direct signal from any composite or S-Video device and get the highest picture quality the tube could ever display
El Estado fascista español quiere encarcelar a Pablo Hasél a toda costa. La fiscalía pide otra condena de casi 3 años de cárcel y una cuantiosa multa, por un montaje policial en el que la Guardia Urbana de Lleida le pegó una paliza a una chaval menor de edad y se lo quieren endosar a Pablo. El Estado fascista español continua su acoso contra Pablo Hasél, al que si no es por una cosa, es por otra, quiere silenciar su voz con las rejas de la cárcel fascista.
after careful consideration i've decided to become worse
