Realistic Portavision 5" Color TV 16-107

Picked up this great little set at a thrift for $5. Couldn't resist. It works. I tested it at the thrift shop. I'll have pics when I get it set up. Looks to have a striped shadow mask. I want it as a monitor for testing connections to analog sets from my TIVO boxes, etc.

This set reminds me of the TMK set in the other thread.Rat Shack used to be great when they printed the schematics in back of the instructions.

Not only did they provide the schematics, but service manuals. You had to pay for the manuals, but they were very complete.
