    Avant VCR circuit board compatability - Curved vs Real Flat

    Is it true that, on the 32" Avant VCRs, the only (electronic) difference between the curved and Real Flat variants is the East-West board? In other words, the CRTs have the same pin-outs, and the only difference is in the board which deals with the geometry issues.
     
    Or to put it another way, could I swap the electronics from a Curved Avant into a Real Flat, retaining only the Real Flat East-West board?
     
    Thank you,

    There is no separate 'east-west' board in the avant, apart from that: i've heard that the newer generation avants (=RF) has boards with 'addresses', unique for that avant and could only be dealer-changed (however, it does sound a bit like sci-fi to me).

    On the other hand, knowing B&O, it wouldn't surprise me that, apart from the deflection board, most boards are alike and maybe interchangeable :).

    Why the question ??, because if you have both you can compare the boards ?? :)

    Sorry for not having an answer yet, will try to stick me nose into an RF when i get the chance (but you don't find these broken thus cheap around really.....apart from the tube in the curved avants i rarely see other problems with avants).

    The reason for the question is that I have a curved screen Avant with a bad tube, and have been offered a flat screen Avant with good tube but bad electronics. I've been trying to decide whether to buy a new CRT for the curved Avant, or buy the RF and make one good TV out of two bad ones.
