I took Mark's advice and bought some of the tubes he posted the web addys to. The cleartops arrived today. Nice tubes. Sorry Brian, they were already on the way when I noticed your post.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Bob, it should be if you told them 110 volt like I said, I got the 3 I ordered a while ago but didn't open them as wouldn't know what to look for to verify 110! Hope the hell they are, he replied to my message specifying 110 so they should be! [-o<

Mine is written on the blue power supply "110v". I'm sure they are all right. The Chinese seem to get the details right. Now, we just have to figure out what to do with them. Based on all of Mark's work so far, I'm confident he will have a plan for us.
Thanks again Mark.

Bob, I purchased some batteries for the remotes assuming that both remotes have same battery? When I bought the first unit like 3 months ago he did not offer 2 different remotes, but when I ordered 3 more he asked if I wanted type 1 or 2. Difference being 1 had less buttons you don't need anyways as it only has s couple functions. I bought batteries for the first one, hope they fit them all as I have 5 batteries! ](*,) Mark has it figured I'm sure! He is very detail orientated! :D

Al

It looks like its time to open the packet and take aloof at the remote.
If it needs AAA size, 1 have 4 pairs lying around that I can bring.

Let me know.

That looks like it! Nice, simpler remote control though.

Mark
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!
