Damned government. Tubed tvs would be obsolete in 2 years anyway, if left alone. They just want to get more money. Don't know how, but that seems to be the drive behind everything the government does these days.

You right. They become one big hustler. With today's horrible economy, I guess they have to.

Are you sure it doesn't mean digital television as in the type of signal it's broadcast on, not the type of television?

yeah, TS was just a bit off. it is only a digital signal that they are switching to from analog broadcasting. So you have to buy a new box or receiver to use the system, which right now is free.

Just this year I migrated to a Fender Hot Rod Deville from my MG100 and fuuuckkkkkkkk me I love it.

I mean,
I know that basing Solid State quality on the MG series isn't really fair but still...

Quote by Chips-
We changed to digital last year, no more analog signals. If you wanna watch TV, you need a digibox (or a TV with one in it)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digi-box


You can still get analog signals without a box although its hard to do now...

At the end of 2008 we will be all digital and a converter box will be manditory

Older televisions, of course. But the equipment used for broadcasting didn't use tubes for, like, 20 years now.

Did the threadstater mean TV's or Analog Broadcasts?

They already have solid state hard drives that perform that can be larger than usual. Prepare yourself.

Solid state harddrives? Isn't that, like, an oxymoron? Do you mean Flash memory and stuff?

It just means we're switching to digital which reaches higher frequencies. Which means more channels and more radio stations can open up.

Yeah, somebody in govt got a Yamaha starter pack for Christmas and fell in love with the little solid state amp it came with. So....... Solid state for all! LOL

uhh the reason they are doing this is so everyone can broadcast in HD, theres no reason at all why this would have any effect on guitar amps.

I don't know if it's been said.. but tubes have been obsolete for the better parts of the past 50 years and I'm not kidding either.
#34
If I'm not mistaken, it's not tube TVs, it's just an analog signal, right?

Like, no antennas or standard cable.


I just saw a commercial from DirecTV about it, and he said DirecTV customers don't need to worry, because all of the channels are in digital format.

Ummm, to the people who think tvs haven't had tubes in for years, it's only flatscreen ones that don't. The thing that makes the image in a tv is a cathode ray tube, even if the rest of the circuitry is solid state.

Only a few solid-state amps are good, and you can only use them for a good trying to sound crappy tone like crass/black flag/subhumans/etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but a lot of TVs still use Cathode Ray Tubes. Mine does. My TV downstairs uses LCD...
