Yo, Gene, I've had it hooked to a 26" TV for games, and it DOES  
change your perspective a bit!

I just now hooked a 3 to my son's 60" RCA (first boot-up of the CoCo  
in about 3 years %^( ... I know, I'm supposed to be working... ) and  
it ggve a 36" x 32" display.  Talk about grainy!

It does seem a bit of a waste, IMO, to spend $400+ for a monitor to  
get RGB analog, when Roy's board is available for so much less, and  
VGA monitors arer readily available at throw-away prices.  To each  
his own.
