Enjoying my new TV


My parents gift-wrapped me an Insignia 25” LCD TV and I can use that for gaming. The TV can do picture within picture like a virtual thing, has a monitor output, S-video inputs, and is a really thin TV. I got it hooked up by myself, and was playing Dead or Alive 2 on it on Christmas. Star Wars – A New Hope looks a little pixilated, it’s not the TVs fault, it’s the quality of the MPEG2 compression, and I am anxiously waiting for Blu-ray (the next generation) to come out.

Specs of Insignia 25" Widescreen HD-Ready Flat-Panel LCD TV Speculations:

Screen size - 25”

Aspect Ratio 16.9

Display Type LCD

Digitally Compatible Yes, HDTV ready

Pixels 1280x760 (1.15 Gigapixels)

Contrast Ratio 600:1

Brightness 450 cd/m²

All supported Picture in Picture, S-Video input, composite video input, RGB input, 5 Watt speakers, 2 speakers, V-Chip



My old TV was decent in 1996. The older Sanyo was an analog only 19” TV that served countless usage on N64 and Dreamcast or watching movies. I almost passionately attached too it, but I’ll have two TVs when I move out in a couple years. Perhaps, I can use one in my bedroom, and the other in the living room?

My parents gave me a DVD player too which is able to play NTSC & PAL DVDs, MPEG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, MP3 CDR or DVDRs. Other stuff my parents gave me for Christmas was a 50 pack of CDRs, 50 pack of DVDRs, Spiderman 2, Star Wars Trilogy, Lady Killers, Bourne Supremacy, Dead or Alive Ultimate for Xbox, and a Samsung cellular phone. My parents also bought a professional scanner for themselves which does excellent picture or document scans. It’s possible to scan b/w text with crystal clear results. The software allows the picture to be compressed in PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP or storage, or MS PowerPoint formats.

The Samsung SCH-a650 has AOL Instant Messenger, E-mail with pictures, caller ID, color LCD. It’s a basic cell phone I know. The SCH-a650 can broadcast digital signals, lasts 24 hours on standby, 1.5 hours of talk time, and can fully charge in 3 hours time. I don’t know what I shall use it for?

I had nothing better to do so I drove to Toyriffic in Hudson, WI to buy some games yesterday including Crimson Skies which was on my list. It’s like a 1930s film. Return to Castle Wolfenstine, a World War II first person shooter originally developed at ID Software, and I got Star Wars - Star Fighter for only – get this – $5.

Christmas gift ideas said...

Well done on a nice blog Ian's Smashing Good Blog Site. I was searching for information on Christmas games and came across your post Enjoying my new TV - not quite what I was looking for related to Christmas games but very nice all the same!

We're all getting ready for Christmas and I've just put the finishing touches to my new site specially for kids, or rather their parents and relatives. You can go there and get Santa to send a really nice personalized letter to a youngster. It's great fun! If you have a moment, perhaps you'd enjoy taking a look: Letter from Santa .

Well, a merry Christmas to you and yours!

Hi, you almost lost me for one second there... but I'm glad I didn't click away. First, I enjoyed your post, and second, maybe you can help. I don't know how much blog spam you get but I get tons on my blog. Most of the time I'm talking about surf dvds because I have a surf dvds website, and people post all this junk with their links and stuff. As blog owners, I guess we'll always be subject to the unethical and inconsiderate. Well, hopefully it's not driving you to crazy... Good luck partner, enjoy the positives friend.

Bye ~
