Are CRTs still made? I thought all the factories were closed down and repurposed years ago!

Normally my 600 works on an Odys 16 Plus LCD and i remember that much headache i got from the CRT 50Hz flicker for so many years.

But yes we run in problems today, few TV's really have a scart input and many of these have them not RGB rewired. So as result the picture with composite as fallback is a mess.

Even right now, only the top of the line LED and OLED screens are able to display the same color gamut and contrast as the good ol' CRT.
Power consumption is another thing. That old CRT rated at 90w is equivalent to a couple of modern 49" LCDs.
