Hello all, I spent some quality time on this forum a few years back. I even made a couple of blog entries that are still here. It looks like it's been gone nearly three years.
Anyway, the reason I popped in is because I have a question about hooking up my Atari 2600 to a new TV. I've been out of the loop for awhile. And I'm hoping someone here can help me out.
Back around 2008 I bought an "updated" Atari 2600 (from one of the users here) who had modified it with an S-video cord and a left and right audio output. So I could easily plug it into my big screen TV. Since that time, I have graduated to a newer TV (which will arrive this weekend). And my Atari's not been used since around 2009.
So the new TV (this one to be exact: http://www.bestbuy.c...7&skuid=4834361
) has HDMI, component and a composite. And I'm a little ignorant on what that all means. I'm assuming I can't use my S-video and audio cables to connect to it. So the question becomes... what do I do?
Is there some sort of converter I can plug my Atari into, which will then plug into one of the HDMI, component or composites? If so, does someone have a link they can post to it - perhaps a link on Amazon?
As an FYI, I would also like to plug in my old NES system as well - which has a video and audio output only. We also have a WII, PS2 and XBOX 360. Those are obviously up to date. But I want my Atari and NES hooked up as well.
Can anyone let me know what I need to do?
On another note, I see a thread about the RED SEA CROSSING game. Is that one still unavailable to the masses? What about that BIRTHDAY game? As I recall only one person had each of those two games. And neither one had given the rom out or sold the game.
Lastly, when I was last on, there was a new game being developed by someone here. It sort of looked like an Raiders Of The Lost Ark-type adventure game. I can't recall the name of it though. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? And did it come out?
Lastly (for real this time) have there been any new versions of ADVENTURE that users have created? Being my all-time favorite game, I'm always eager to buy any new homemade versions.
Thanks for the help in advance!
