Photo taken in 1956 to publicize Alliance add-on wired remote, but the set looks earlier to me?

1949 RCA Model No. 9-TC-272

B/W set with the 16AP4 CRT. Outstanding performer too, 4 or 5 IF stages, DC coupled video.

I t looks to me a 1951 9-T-77. The screen is 19" on the 9-T-77 and the 9TC272 did not have the doors depicted. The 9-T-77 did.

You're right, I thought the 9-TC-272 had doors. It doesn't. Apparently only the 9-TC-275 did. What chassis is in the 9-T-77? Is it a variant of the KCS-47 chassis?

KCS 49 according the Sams. (http://www.earlytelevision.org/pdf/RCA_9T57_Sams_111-1.pdf)

This picture confirms it's a 9-T-77 (you have to click, it's too large to link.

The door will have to be left open with that remote installed.:yes:

In 1951 RCA turned to rectangular. Lasst round sets were in 1950. Might be a Yuch KCS- 47 chassis. Troublesome chassis.
Eight controls in front.
Have a model on it? Looks like a 6T74.
Hope this helps.

That set in picture looks like a sixteen inch. I think I see doors.
The 19" round sets actually came out in late 1950. They also use the kcs 47 rigged up for higher hv with a different flyback.
I have the red book on those sets, plus, my sets.
I have the 1949 table model with a 16AP4, which comes out of the front of the cabinet.
