NEW offering.Excellent condition Front Loader with PPU removed and socketed, this makes it much easier to mod the console + new NESRGB Front Loader kit. $199 shipped anywhere in the USA. Pic on last post of thread.
I have 1 RGB modded Front Loader NES with Gamecube multi-out available $279 shipped anywhere in the USA.
I have one RGB modded N64 $99 shipped Priority anywhere in the USA. I never see these anymore in the wild and got lucky and found a nice one.
If you want to buy a front loader NES or a RGB modded N64 you can PM and check availability. These are consoles only. All hardware I sell is in excellent condition. These sell fast, especially the N64.
NESRGB boards are in Stock. If you are an NES fan, and not even really interested in RGB you might still want to purchase a board so that you have s-video.
This is a direct link to the items available for purchase from Tim and shipped by me.

NES RGB MOD:
If you check out the link above you will see that there is now an NESRGB board for the NES. It is made by Tim in Australia.
This mod is more for the skilled DIY person, removing the 40 pin PPU can be pretty tedious. Please follow Tim's instructions carefully.
Tim has instructions on his website for using an 8 pin mini-din for the RGB and another 4 pin mini-din for s-video with a separate 3.5mm stereo jack for the audio and 3 position toggle switch.
See Pic below for my method for installing the NESRGB mod
I will only install the NESRGB mod using a donor multi-out jack from a N64, SNES or Gamecube console. I also install the 3 position toggle switch for pallete selection discretely on the bottom.
NESRGB mod is $189 installed (parts included) + return shipping. If you want to include a non-working N64, SNES or Gamecube with good condition multi-out jack that I can use as donor for your NES mod, you can take $20 off the total.
A/V famicom is $149 installed (parts included) + return shipping. (add power switch LED $10)
Top Loader is $199 with 3D printed multiout + return shipping (add power switch LED $10)
Multi-out jack outputs composite, S-Video and RGB
All NES consoles that I mod or sell include replacing the 7805 (1 amp)voltage regulator with the L7805CV (1.5 amp) voltage regulator and a replacement 2200 micro farad electrolytic capacitor, 72 pin connector is refurbished. ( I have found that a refurbished original connecter is better that the replacement.
I offer mod services for Front Loader, Top Loader (with 3d printed multiout) and AV Famicom.
N64 RGB mod:
Price for the N64 mod will be only $35 + return shipping.(I'll install a blue LED at no additional cost) The RGB mod is sold on Ebay for $25 and it still takes delicate solder work to connect the input lines to either the back side of the board or the VDC chip pins on the top side of the board. I have experimented and I am not a fan of connecting the mod to the top of the board with long leads and running the output wires under the board to connect to the multi-out port...I have noticed that there can be some interference. I connect the mod to the underside of the board with extremely short leads and replace the shielding for the best possible results.
You need to check the serial # on the bottom of your N64 console and make sure it starts with NS1. Only early consoles can be easily modded, if your serial # starts with NS2 you have a later model console and this mod will not work.
RGB is addictive! A Framemeister, some cables, your LCD (LED), and your classic consoles and living the classic gaming dream. Or if your a big CRT fan your RGB monitor, cables and consoles.
I highly recommed this fantastic site for information about RGB and classic game consoles.
Regardless if you choose to have me preform these mods for you or you do it yourself I strongly encourage anyone interested in the best possible video quality to pursue this.
I have got a number of questions about cables. It can get confusing. Please read this over carefully.
It is important to note that the SHVC-010 uses composite video for sync....NOT composite sync/csync.
The N64 uses composite video for sync. The NESRGB modded A/V Famicom and NESRGB modded NES are wired to use either composite video OR composite sync/csync for sync. Make sure you buy the correct cable and that the cable is compatible with the scaler you are using.
Ideally if your in the USA, your using an NTSC console, the framemeister and an NTSC monitor or TV.
Your set up would be like this.
NTSC Nintendo Console : NESRGB modded a/v Famicom, NESRGB modded NES (with multi-out jack), N64 (RGB amp mod), or stock SNES > SHVC-010 Japanese 21 RGB cable > JP-21 to 8 pin mini-din adapter > framemeister > TV (monitor) This is the method I use and it works!
There are SHVC-010 equivalent third party cable available. For a fraction of the cost of the original. If you go with a third party cable, make sure you buy it wired correctly.
Getting the proper cable(s) can be confusing. I only modify and sell NTSC NES and N64 consoles and they use the same cable. The unmodified NTSC SNES also uses the same cable as the modified NES and N64.
