I have been given this tool. I have a Tek 2246A and a Hitachi scope already. What can I do with this that I can't with the other scopes? I have never done anything with video nor intend to. Also, the trace is hiding deep lower left of CRT. Can't get it out of there.
If you're doing anything with baseband video, such as CCTV cameras for
surveillance systems, video tape recorders, etc., then you'll want
this.

It looks at very specific things on the video waveform with an ease
that is hard to duplicate on most oscilloscopes unless they have some
very specific TV signal processing/filters built in.

Having said that, this is the old standard 450 or so line resolution,
analog video, 75 ohms, 1.4 v p-p video that uses either BNC, SO-239,
or RCA jacks (on consumer equipment).

Generally not found as much as you'd think.

If you never intend to do anything with video, then it won't be of
much use to you. As has been mentioned, it's not a general purpose
scope.
