I use TV in teh DR
I have a 38" HDTV direct-view TV that weighs 250lbs suspended 3 feet above my easel. I have removed my enlarger and connected the TV to my timer. TV comes off and on via footswitch. Timer is a compensating type and turns off during commercials. Exposure times are automatically calculated via an electrode in the light path. Timer has settings for:
'talk shows', 'soaps', 'news', 'PBS', 'sports', 'poker' and 'misc'.
I have to lay on my back and look up to see the picture, though. I don't print much, but I do watch a lot of TV.
