Uses for a handheld TV? Answered

I have this handheld analog TV and I wondered if there was any use for it. A friend gave it to me he bought it just after the analog to digital conversion. It works and is brand new. Does anyone knowa use for it? Do you think any one would buy it if I tried to sell it through the instructables forum.



I love to use those portable TVs for a video monitor when I'm shooting on a tripod. If you're into video production, it's a great use for them. I always grab old portable DVD players from people when they stop playing DVDs, because the line-in jacks normally still work. (I have all the monitors I need right now, otherwise I would consider buying it from you) This is just a suggestion incase you are into video, but I also like blkhawk's suggestion.

If you are into electronics, you can make a handheld oscilloscope.

That might be a good idea. Do you know of any websites with plans.

You'd be better-able to sell it through ebay.

You could convert it to digital, though, since there are a number of quite small "digital boxes" on the market.

Where would I get one of these digital boxes and how much would it cost.
