Notes from the Electronic Cottage 10/15/09

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

Today, as we move toward the Electronic Cottage’s 10th anniversary, we re-listen to an edition from 2000, this one on how to tune a color TV- with a brief digression on the difference between additive and subtractive color.
Back then, all television sets used analog technology so that is what this old program describes. But even though today’s flat screen TVs no longer have color guns, and even though, if you have a flat screen TV, you probably adjust color using an on-screen menu, the principles of how color works on a television, and the types of controls you have to deal with are still the same.
