Only challenge is that I have to tune it into the TV. Wish I could put it into the tv direct as an AV option. . .Thoughts anyone?


I thought all those old game consoles tuned very closely to a frequency that is close to "TVNZ-Channel-1" frequency, If so you may nearly see a picture on channel-1 and scan either way to pick it up.

I have no issues tuning my woodys in.
They are a bit grainy but still tuneable on a modern TV.

Please dont get me wrong, I can tune them in. Just prefer to plug them into an AV channel as per my other items. Easier than working out what channel I had put it on. I am just being a pain in the ass I guess :roll: Sorry.

You can modify 2600s to pull composite out of them but be warned: do so and you end up with purists wanting to give you a paddling, and any value it had will be depreciated severely due to your modifications.

Thanks for the top tip. I will walk away slowly and with head hung low :oops: where the hell is that tune option?

Normally has a Ch2/3 switch on the back, check that first.

Noted that in the past you had purchased carts. DO you still collect or have any to sell?

What kind of carts? I bought a pile for my MD2 recently but generally don't collect non-Commodore stuff so often any more. After something?

Nah I never actually got any extras. I've got Pole Position, Outlaw and Space Invaders I believe. It's almost as depressing as my XEGS collection :)

Great! Glad it is all good for you. Ran fine for me too but when you mail things . . .

Glad when things work out well!

The A1200 got too rich for my blood. :/
I have a spare NTSC CD32 if anyone is interested.
