Good question! In reality all models have to be under name Videoton only.
The story: in 1938 was founded A Hunter Cartridge, Detonator and Metallgoods Company. On the end of WW2 the company had about 1700 employees. On the end of 1944 the German army moved the valuable production tools and from this reason the production went up after war very slowly and with big problems. After nationalization in 1948 the goverment made a decission to convert in the communication equipment. As a result the company developed the first radio set R545 in 1955. Somewhen after 1957 the company renamed to VIDEOTON Radio and TV factory.

Very nice that you could tell us the true story to it.
Can you please do the following:


Change the company Vadásztölténygyár, VTRGy, Videoton , VTRGy, to Videoton
 (Because it has 16 models and not only 6 like "Viedeoton", it's easyer.

Change maker of the 6 models of Videoton to the new Videoton.

Change The old Videoton which now has no models to
Vadásztölténygyár, VTRGy - see Videoton
And the shortname from videoton-9 to vadaszt

If possible: Bring the story about Videoton to the company.

Thank you very much
