I have been slower than I would like at making new things for my TV mod, but today I can finally announce a few things that I am working on!
After finding a new LCD with better resolution and viewing angle (see my previous post here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-ish-tz-tv-mod-w-beautiful-video-playback/page/9#post-4832259), the next improvement I wanted to make is finding/creating more cases for the mod and improving the ones that I have.
The CRT style case has gotten a makeover, and is now a little smaller. This smaller footprint allows it to fit into tighter spaces and the smaller scaler makes it feel more natural next to other toys.
I now have an LCD style case, a plain black bezel that blends into the background and is designed to look more modern. This case can be customized with different paint colors. I have had requests for black (this fits with just about any machine), white, and even chrome for games like Terminator.
I also have an antique picture frame faceplate that fits perfectly over the LCD panel. This is the smallest footprint of any of these cases (because its not a true case, just a faceplate!) and works wells for games like TFTC, Addams Family, Monster Bash, and Munsters.
The old-style TV case is about as perfect as it can get, the only improvements have been making it easier to build.
Of course all of these cases have the option to add a blood splatter effect.
Oh, and another improvement on the hardware side. I can now include a micro USB power socket on the back of the TV for power. This allows for super easy power connections in machines that include a USB service port or for plugging into a USB wall adaptor outside of the machine.
I can make my mod for just about any machine and any video, just send me a PM and I will work with you to make it happen!
Some of the latest machines I have built my mod for includes, Munsters, Monster Bash Remake, Stern Jurassic Park, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Rick and Morty!

Here is an example of the latest request, Rick and Morty in the black LCD case! (I cut out the interdimensional cable shows into a continuous clip!):
