Default Re: Television set?

Wasn't the early English name 'televisor'?

In Dutch, the most used words are the same for the content and the set: televisie, also TV for short or sometimes televisietoestel (toestel means equipment or set) for long.

In German, it's Fernseh for the content and Fernseher for the set. Fern means distant and seher means something that sees (or enables seeing).
