Hi, I have an original Hitachi MV-1U for sale in museum quality condition. Like most electronics buffs, I have never seen or even heard of this set before, and no one else I've consulted has either. The only verifiable information I have found was from a 1972 Press Release, attached hereto. The MV-1U was the world's first television with "pause" technology containing a 14-inch screen and a smaller 9-inch screen. Today, we simply hit the pause button on our wireless remote control, but back in 1972, it was a little more involved, requiring the use of a "hard drive" spinning at 3,600 rpm to store the image from the larger screen and reproduce it on the smaller screen. Due to the exorbitant cost of these sets back in 1972 and '73, very few were ever sold to consumers and most went to corporations, schools and hospitals, and then discarded (apparently). This particular set powers up and all the buttons and slide bars work as they should. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I prefer a local cash transaction, but will discuss other options. I am located in Schaumburg, IL. My name is Robert. Thank you.
