@mike I used a 1084 for everything back in the day. Computers, big dish, vcr... everything.
I also had a genlock. I had two IR LEDs on my unused joystick port (not a gamer) and used it to manipulate all the stereo-tv stuff. I had a IR mouse and a pair of IR-> RF transmitters. A middle-click on the mouse brought up a full screen remote gui (I did in Rexx) of buttons overlaid on the video signal via the genlock. I got crazy later with voice control and vox activated walkytalky's. 1994... crazy guy
yeah, what a soup of 'standards', pal, secam, ntsc...I have 3.58meg burned into my brain - what a horrible compromise was ntsc!
Anyhow, you know what they say: "The beautiful thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from." /sarcasm.
Also, we all know this xkcd:
