Good luck with that. Around here you can't give them away.

Yup, donate them to Habitat Restore or Goodwill, etc. At least you can get a tax deductible charitable donation.

Probably won't take them. Since TVs went digital, nobody want's old TVs. Our local goodwill, salvation Army, and another charity wasn't interested in our oak wall unit either, because if a wall unit can't house a wide-screen TV even the poor don't want it.

Now, beggars get brand free Obamaphones.

Everyone has a "right" to a cellphone, right?

Why don't people have a "right" to watch the Boob Toob?

TVs aren't quite free (yet), though if you look closely at a cable TV bill, you are paying a "tax" to subsidize the cable bill of low-income people.

Charities and thrift stores in my area sell the 27" big old tube TVs for $10-$15.

Re: 1990 tv


The money you spend on electricity will quickly be saved just buying a new TV

Even with our electricity rates..... It would take quite a while to pay for a TV with that power consumption. Efren longer when using a switched power bar.

VCR coaxial output --> TV

Select that input on the VCR.
Turn to channel 3 or 4 on the TV. (whichever is selected on the VCR)

Cable / Antenna to the coaxial input of the VCR. Most of them will pass digital signals, but if it doesn't and is required, a $2 coaxial switch will work.

Re: 1990 tv


... DVD output --> VCR input ...

Use cable set with red, yellow, and white RCA plugs at both ends.

... Cable / Antenna to the coaxial input of the VCR ...

Yes, digital signals will pas through but -- Almost no over the air commercial stations nowadays can be tuned in by the VCR or the TV unless you have an "ATSC to NTSC converter" aka "DTV to NTSC converter" that is another box, connected between the antenna cable and the coaxial input of the VCR.

For cable TV with no cable box, only "analog channels" will come in on the 1990's TV -- and only those channels between 2 and 13 if the TV is not cable ready. Some cable boxes will output most channels one at a time as analog channel 3 or analog channel 4 to be selected by the VCR or by the TV. Some cable boxes will output most channels, one at a time, via red, white and yellow jacks
