I was watching the movie Toy Soldiers on late night television and there were two a2000s with 1084s in it. One in the command tent and one in the dorm room of the younger students. Probably the same computer used on both sets.

It looks to me like the Commodore 1942 multisync monitor A mate of mine had one in about 1994 for his A1200 so i would pretty much recognize one anywhere!

Yeah i had a Philips monitor for my A1200, so i was very envious of his 1942 at the time which gave everything a softness and no flicker

I have not seen them for a while, but I think an amiga 1000 was used in the season finale of Sledgehammer. A spoof cop show that aired back in the late 80s. Theyvisd it instead of a sketch artist to make u a portait of a suspect. There is also in season 7 of married with children the episode when Bud gets 25000$ grant to go to college. In his dorm room, it appears to be an amiga on he desk, but I can't seem to make out which one it is.
