Title: Who uses an LCD/TFT TV (SCART) with their Atari?
Post by Heavy Stylus on 11.01.08 at 16:14:08
Anyone?  If so, please list it here.  The Atari outputs an unusual video signal that a lot of LCD TV's can't cope with, so it would be great to have a definitive list of TV's that the Atari ST(E) range of machines *do* work with.

For example, my LG M1921A 19" sort of works... the picture is pretty good in low and med resolutions UNLESS there's a lot of cyan on the screen... Cyan/Light Blue seems to cause other shades/colours to fade from the pallette and makes the screen really bright..  It's a problem with the LCD RGB hardware decoding the Atari signal and not the Atari itself - the image is fine on a CRT via Scart.

Games like Backlash are therefore unplayable on my TV, and the scroller on the Kick My Ass'embler demo is impossible to see :(  Both work via RF lead though, so it's not the end of the world(!)

However, Techie Alison has confirmed that the Samsung LE19R71BX Telvision (with additional VGA input) works a treat, as does the LE27S7 according to GGN.

Any more?  If people want to list Falcon friendly LCD's then please highlight them accordingly.
