> What did I say that took it out of being a media query issue? I merely suggested that the same query to find devices with an unsafe zone would also find devices with interlacing.

So you want a new query term that not only supports a dying technology (CRTs), but also inappropriate yet still somewhat workable hardware set-ups.

"Using the wrong cable" does not imply CRT's. Some people can be
misinformed and they might think that a, say, Super VGA must be used
even when told that they must use a digital cable. Sometimes it is
just impossible to convince them and then the cable is buried into a
wall. You cannot just assume the correct digital cables are always
