Default Re: Television set?

Just picking up on two points from these posts, the Air Ministry/RAF used the word 'Computor', spelled with an 'o', to refer to a calculating device, for example the MkIV Bombsight Computor used in the Avro Lancaster and other heavy bombers is an electro/pneumatic/mechanical calculator, and also a whole range of rotary slide-rule calculators used by the Navigator and Bomb-Aimer.

'Televisor' was also used in the context of electronic television receivers, not just mechanical Baird-type, in the 40s and 50s.
