Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical technology relics that the Frank Sharp Private museum has accumulated over the years .

Premise: There are lots of vintage electrical and electronic items that have not survived well or even completely disappeared and forgotten.

Or are not being collected nowadays in proportion to their significance or prevalence in their heyday, this is bad and the main part of the death land. The heavy, ugly sarcophagus; models with few endearing qualities, devices that have some over-riding disadvantage to ownership such as heavy weight,toxicity or inflated value when dismantled, tend to be under-represented by all but the most comprehensive collections and museums. They get relegated to the bottom of the wants list, derided as 'more trouble than they are worth', or just forgotten entirely. As a result, I started to notice gaps in the current representation of the history of electronic and electrical technology to the interested member of the public.


Following this idea around a bit, convinced me that a collection of the peculiar alone could not hope to survive on its own merits, but a museum that gave equal display space to the popular and the unpopular, would bring things to the attention of the average person that he has previously passed by or been shielded from. It's a matter of culture. From this, the Obsolete Technology Tellye Web Museum concept developed and all my other things too. It's an open platform for all electrical Electronic TV technology to have its few, but NOT last, moments of fame in a working, hand-on environment. We'll never own Colossus or Faraday's first transformer, but I can show things that you can't see at the Science Museum, and let you play with things that the Smithsonian can't allow people to touch, because my remit is different.

There was a society once that was the polar opposite of our disposable, junk society. A whole nation was built on the idea of placing quality before quantity in all things. The goal was not “more and newer,” but “better and higher" .This attitude was reflected not only in the manufacturing of material goods, but also in the realms of art and architecture, as well as in the social fabric of everyday life. The goal was for each new cohort of children to stand on a higher level than the preceding cohort: they were to be healthier, stronger, more intelligent, and more vibrant in every way.

The society that prioritized human, social and material quality is a Winner. Truly, it is the high point of all Western civilization. Consequently, its defeat meant the defeat of civilization itself.

Today, the West is headed for the abyss. For the ultimate fate of our disposable society is for that society itself to be disposed of. And this will happen sooner, rather than later.

OLD, but ORIGINAL, Well made, Funny, Not remotely controlled............. and not Made in CHINA.

Every CRT Television saved let revive knowledge, thoughts, moments of the past life which will never return again.........

Many contemporary "televisions" (more correctly named as displays) would not have this level of staying power, many would ware out or require major services within just five years or less and of course, there is that perennial bug bear of planned obsolescence where components are deliberately designed to fail and, or manufactured with limited edition specificities..... and without considering........picture......sound........quality........

..............The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of todays funny gadgets low price has faded from memory........ . . . . . .....
Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

GRUNDIG SUPER COLOR A 8402/96 SERIE F3026 CHASSIS CUC 720 (CUC720 IT) INTERNAL VIEW.








































































In 1981 begins a NEW ERA in GRUNDIG CHASSIS DEVELOPMENT:

It starts with the COMPACT UNIVERSAL CHASSIS, a completely NEW CHASSIS DESIGN which doesn't SHARE anything with the older chassis GSC types or 29304.........

From this CUC720 GRUNDIG abandoned all the previous chassis technology in all stages and parts.

This chassis is so called COMPACT UNIVERSAL CHASSIS not by the "Compact" feature but more for the EXPANDABILITYIES: Teletext decoder / Further Chroma Standards / Stereo and bilingual Sound and other improvements which was possible to put in, even under final customer special request.

This Chassis was Universally used in ALL SETS produced by GRUNDIG (Even PORTABLE) until came out another type of CUC The CUC70 / CUC50 which we will see sooner or later HERE

THE CUC 720 was the most reliable chassis made by GRUNDIG and one of the most in the ERA in which came out, in 1981. (Except for some dry joints in TUNER UNIT).

The set here in collection has approx 65.000 working Hours and it's still in perfect working order. All parts and components (except some electrolytics capacitors in Power Supply)
are original !! !! !! !! !! !! !!!!!




Remote control television with external data bus connection,
Remote Control With MOS IC's For TV Sets: THE GRUNDIG AV FEATURE CONNECTOR TECHNOLOGY:

A television receiver is provided for use as a picture display terminal for electronic peripheral equipment, where a control system with a data-bus is built into the television receiver for multitude of commands and in which the television receiver is intended to be used in addition to the normal direct reception of televised pictures for other possible applications. The television receiver can serve as a monitor for a picture tape recorder, which is equipped for recording independently of the television receiver. A complete television receiving set is provided with automatic transmitter seeking mechanism and electronic channel storage.


1. A system for the use of a television receiver for external control of electronic peripheral devices, said television being of the type including a built-in integrated circuit remote control receiver, said remote control receiver being divided into two sections, one section being allocated to the remote control of the receiving and reproduction sections of the television receiver and the other section being allocated to a databus having nothing to do with the television receiver receiving and reproduction sections; an output terminal of said databus comprising an adaptor connector between said television receiver and an external peripheral device; a peripheral device external to the television receiver; cable means connecting the output of said databus with said peripheral device; and a decoder interposed between said databus output terminal and peripheral device for converting data from said databus into a form suitable for controlling functions of said peripheral device.

2. A television receiver as a picture terminal according to claim 1, in which said external coupling includes a connecting cable between the external connections of the television set and the peripheral device forming a unitary unit together with a decoder which transforms the data from the data collector into a code which directly controls the functions of the peripheral device.

3. A television receiver as a picture terminal according to claim 1 or 2, in which the peripheral device is a picture taping device which operates for recording independently from the television set which acts as a monitor.

4. A television receiver as a picture terminal according to claim 1, in which the functions controlled by said first commands include the on-off switching, picture, sound and channel selection of the television receiver and the functions controlled by said second commands include electronic program storage and changeover functions.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Integrated circuits are presently known in the art for the convenient operation of television receivers, whereby the functions of on-off switching, channel selection, picture (video) and sound (audio) can be remotely controlled by the received telecontrol signal. In particular, the following function can be operated by such a system: Switching on and off of the equipment, calling for different program channels, variations and basic adjustments of sound level, brightness and color saturation, silencing of the sound as well as inserting of time references. With a known and presently available operating system up to 16 channels can be installed, so that it is possible, to select directly that number of programs and to tune the receiver to the appropriate channel.

Television receivers available today in many designs provide for up to 30 remotely controlled channels or channels controlled by the received signal (tele-signal) to properly operate. Additionally, infrared control is also becoming popular. These controls provide commands by means of a databus so that the operation of the various functions is possible with the provision of additional commands.

It is further known to equip peripheral equipment such as video tape recorders with a so-called electronic-tap-key rather than keys with a long throw so that all parts which are susceptable to mechanical wear are eliminated and replaced by digital controls.

It has become of interest to connect the peripheral equipment such as the video tape recorder to the television receiver so that both can be conveniently operated. With the development of new concepts simplification of design becomes critical for ease of operation and reduction of expense.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

A television receiver as a picture display terminal for electronic peripheral devices wherein a remote control system with a data collector is installed for receiving a plurality of commands and in which only a portion of the commands is used for the remote control functions of the receiving and display portions of the television set, while another portion of the commands is used for adjusting the functions of an electronic peripheral device which may be coupled with a television set, and that the data collector is electrically coupled by means of an external coupling of the television set with the corresponding stages of the peripheral device.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING

The FIGURE is a diagrammatic showing of a television receiver and electronic periphery device incorporating the invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

A television receiver and electronic peripheral device incorporating the invention are shown in the FIGURE. The television receiver 10 can be used as a picture display terminal for peripheral device 12. This provides the advantage, that by means of a single tele-control signal, the control of functions of the receiving and displaying sections of the television receiver can be accomplished as well as the control functions of the peripheral equipment 12, which is connected to the receiver. The peripheral device does not require a separate tele-control system since that which is already installed in the television receiver can be used. To accomplish this, portion A of the available commands A, B of the tele-control system 11 are used for the function of the television receiver 10. The remaining portion B of the available commands A, B, which is made available at databus or data collector 14 is used for the control of functions of the peripheral equipment. The databus, which is coordinated with the peripheral equipment, and which is built into the tele-control system of the television receiver, is connected electrically to external terminal 16 of the television receiver. The external terminals at television receivers and peripheral equipment are relatively inexpensive.

The primary expenses result from the necessary cable connections between the external terminals of the television receiver and the peripheral equipment, as well as the auxiliary apparatus, such as decoder 18, which decodes the data from the databus 14 and prepares it for the peripheral equipment. These expenses are reduced by simplified design, in which the connecting cables 20 and 22 together with the auxiliary apparatus or decoder 18 are combined in one component or building block. This building block can be offered as an accessory to the user of television receivers with peripheral equipment.

The invention can be used with especial advantage in connecting a television receiver with a picture tape recorder as a peripheral equipment. The picture tape recorder is equipped preferably for recording independently from the television receiver, so that the latter serves as a monitor only. With such a switching combination it is possible, for example, to accomplish this with a single control system, and by the help of a tele-control system, which is built into the television receiver, to operate the channel selection and drive mechanism control, the control for an electronic switch clock and programming of the switch commands of the picture tape recorder as well as the control of the function of the receiving and displaying unit of the receiver. In this way it is possible to use the tele-control of a television receiver additionally for the tele-control of the picture tape recorder without substantial higher expenses.
