    1997 Panasonic--works like it is brand new.

    I currently have digital Cable --optimum online.

    I pay $145 a month for the triple play.

    If I switch to Verizon Fios it says under $100 for 2 years, but

    #1 Will it work with my old CRT?

    #2 What are these + fees and taxes?

    So what are you paying for Fios and what are the fees? Thanks.

    Most likely need a newer TV anyway.

    I just moved from NYC and we had FIOS and it was the bees knees :p I think you should be able to have a CRT, I think ours was originally linked up with Component and I later switched it when we got a better TV. I feel like it started at $125 a month and then we added $15 a month for DVR, great for those early Formula One races :D The internet was totally worth it and it sucked moving out to Texas and having to get Time Warner.... I already hate it...

    Triple play limited HD: $109 HDTV limited basic cable, internet, phone.
    DVR rental: $17
    Taxes: $18.50

    The DVR rental seems a bit high to me.

    You would be missing out a lot on the quality though.

    Ahhh, using FIOS with an old CRT is a bit like buying a Monet and burying it in a sand pile, or buying truffles and feeding them to your cat. Just doesn't make sense…. :rolleyes:

    Or SUPER BLAZING FAST FiOS INTERNET to use with an iMac G3 as your main computer. :D

    Or a Ferrari to use as your daily driver to the grocery store.

    Or an unlimited data plan to use with your brick phone.

    Or a DSLR camera for you to take pictures of your cat with.

    Or a Mac Pro for you to use to go online and type up a few documents with :D :D:D :D

    ------> You're paying a LOT OF MONEY per month, you might as well get what you pay for, and that includes using a TV that provides you with FULL HD.

    As long as the TV has A/V ports you should not have a problem. You won't get HD but you will get a signal.
