TV for Outdoors

by roysimmons / July 2, 2006 11:57 PM PDT

We live in Florida and have a pool with a deck of which about 10 feet is covered by the roof. We want to mount a TV (maybe 20"-30" depending on price) on a wall arm. We would also plan on removing the TV to the house if one of our famous hurricanes is on its way.
Are there any TV's that would be best for this? Are there any pitfalls we should look out for?
Many Thanks!

Well even if the section where the tv will be is under a roof, there can still be a lot of ambinant light. The best would be a CRT, down side a 30" crt would wieght about 170lbs.
The next best choice would be a LCD flat pannel. John

I think it's the one I've seen on TV a couple of times. I don't remember what network or program had it. Maybe HGTV or TLC?

Nice idea for those to whom the bucks are not the concern. On TV they demonstrate spraying the set with a garden hose with no ill effect.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
