One can be used on CRT only, the other on TV only.

I'm not sure about driver settings, I'm fairly certain it does not mess with these. I believe it has a pass-through. I'll have to check again on my gun.

You won't find a converter for a console gun most likely. Especially not one that will let you use a console gun on your CRT. From all accounts, the reports from those who bought the guns were all positive. Never had one returned to the store. It's not a tank, like the ones you'll see in the arcade, so you have to be somewhate careful not to bang it all over the place, but otherwise it's top notch.

Best of luck finding one though, they have not made new stock on the PC guns for a while, and it looks like it may still be some time before new stock is available.
