Filming a TV

Instead when I switched the TV on I played a film and with my Super 8 camera [Bauer S715XL] I zoomed into the whole TV frame, the light meter was still saying that the TV didn't produce enough light, but I locked the exposure anyway , I then zoomed out, I finally played nothing but static on the TV and filmed with my Super 8 camera, it worked pretty well. The scan lines seemed okay, my camera was set at 24fps, I think there are no scan lines if you are filming an LCD TV.

Since static is very inconsistent, why not just film in single frame mode... This will allow more light, correct? film 5 frames or second. Even film 18 or whatever, you won't be able to tell it's playing as a time lapse. I seriously doubt it, anyway...
I realize you (Jonathan) have a camera already picked out (and a nice one), but I thought I would just point out that the long- or "bulb" exposure feature of cameras like the Nizo's and Bauer's would be ideal for that kind of shot. Even one of the less desirable Nizo's would be just fine. The 480 or 560, for example.
