This action is suppose to provide the low voltage potential a path to follow to the grids. The low voltage spark is harder to start and generally requires help such as the spark created when contact points break a circuit. The high voltage doesn't energize the motor coil, its the attached low voltage potiental that does the work.The diode can be two feet from the tube, setting there like a glass full to the rim of cold water, If you try to pour in some hot water, warm water will overflow the sides of the glass. This happens at the top, open end of the glass of cold water not the bottom. Do you see my point?
The most important question is now : did Gray used the same circuit for power small TV set as for his motor ?

If so then your assumption is correct, but if he used some special or additional element for powering TV from his tube then your assumption is completely wrong and he utilized radiant energy.

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION NOW, because it could explain the if cold electricity is the same which Tesla discovered and all pieces should "click" in proper positions into this puzzle set.
