The title pretty much says it all. Has no one attempted/succeed at this? Google searches are fruitless. I feel like, out of several billions of people alive today, I may be the ONE person looking to output my Intellivision via Component. 🤷🏼‍♂️ I'm weird like that, I guess.

I'd look for an Intellivision RGBS modification; and a seperate RGBS to YPbPr converter. https://www.ebay.ca/...6ffff739b|iid:1

Your television would have to support 240p over YPbPr.

Considered that, but it's way more than I'd like to pay, for a mod that itself is very difficult to acquire (plus I've heard mixed things about the one currently existing mod that's available to purchase).

It's cheaper than an rgb to hdmi converter. Which existing rgb mod are you referring to? Emerson is working on one in the other thread, not sure what his plans are with it.

I should probably clarify: I'm using a Sony Wega CRT. For this, HDMI/VGA mods are pretty much useless to me.

And yes, I did catch Emerson's mod thread. Iirc, he was only developing it for personal use. The existing mod I was referring to is the Kono mod.

Yes, Emerson mentioned he does not intend to sell kits but did talk about end users and is doing a lot of testing. Maybe a pcb of his design and parts will be available.

And I was just trying to say that the rgb to YPbPr converter is not all that expensive. And they might become rare as YPbPr inputs on modern TVs are disappearing.
