That's a good point [In reply to] Can't Post

As more and more of us have LCD and LED televisions, it's likely that our pets are going to be paying more attention to them. The old CRT screens were harder for them to interpret. I know this because Dr. Irene Pepperberg with her work with parrots said that her Alex reacted strongly to the flatscreen computer. His vision was typical of birds, they interpret visual cues faster than our eyes do. So the old screens with their electron guns shooting particles at the back of the screen made no sense to them. The newer screens show it all at once, as I understand, so animals are going to get the whole picture. Makes it more likely that they'll pay attention.
What is surprising to me is that dogs (and probably cats to a lesser degree) are largely scent oriented, so they are ignoring their noses and using their weaker sense, that of sight, to observe this event. Our sound quality is better too, so they're more likely to expect to see a dog or wolf when hearing the wargs.
Has anyone had their dog or cat react strongly to the scenes when shown on an older television? Would be interested in finding out.
Dr. Pepperberg even had special programming for Alex that he could control. His favorite program? Her.Heart
