Hey so I recently picked up a Vidiot and was trying to just follow along with the intro video for it on the LZX youtube channel and noticed certain things looked different and I wondered if my TV was the issue. Any time my patterns got too dense, it would tend to look blurry and fuzzy rather than simply a dense pattern.
The TV i’m using is an LED Samsung TV (like 32" or something, just had it in a closet and it’s the only screen I own with input other than HDMI). I never changed any aspect ratio settings in case that makes a difference. I was using composite (I just ordered a set of component cables after reading here that it is higher quality).
I noticed that most people use CRT monitors or LCD screens. The former is more money than I’d like to spend unless I have to (I’d rather spend the money on a camera or DVD/VHS player unless I manage to find a tube screen locally for under $100) so I’m debating trying to find a barebones LCD just to have more excuses to lose a few hours to the Vidiot or figure out if my current TV can work.
Can anyone share some insight on the advantages/disadvantages of screen types and/or ways to mitigate the downfalls of less-than-ideal devices? Sorry if this has been asked. I tried searching for “monitor” and “television” and “led” and wasn’t able to figure out the answer to my question. tia
