you can use a modern tv for computers.

theres a cable adapter that actually plugs into the little metal cable screw on modern tvs, and turns it into the VHF set up. (I have a small box of them)

then, get a generic Game/TV switch box and screw it in.

then get a reverse converter to convert the VHF screws to cable (I have a small collection of these to) and screw them into where the "TV" label is.

And there you have it. You can enjoy modern tv viewing and vintage computing at the same time.

For collector's reasons, I recently got a really cool Philco TV (fake wood color and all) and am using it for my Atari 2600 and Intellivision. It looks really cool cause that "fake wood" color matches perfectly. Its really cool, maybe I'll upload a pic.

For my NES, I got a Zenith tv with the same plastic color. But I'm getting off topic...

hope this helps someone!
