  1. + 1 to 8 pin mini din. Tim worhtington's 2600rgb, nesrgb come with it and he has a cable kit for it too (8pin to scart). https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=8 pin Pre-made scart cable are available as well. wired to the frameister spec. The 8 pin mini probably has the most options when it comes to case mounts and pcb mounts. Vga is bulky The sega gensis /megadrive 9b pin whatever is hard to get good case/ panel mount options. A mini din 10 pin ( like the Saturn) would be good if wanted to have chrome/luma on the same connector and use pre made cables.
  2. They do buy stuff. All of the red (maybe purple too?) tag item clearance / returns item from big box stores - like target. It's just bought DIRT cheap - like pennies on the dollar. Never buy red tags that has been RE -taped shut! Its probably broken/ missing parts. I once bought a Bummble-Bee transformer that was a red tag retape - it had TWO LEFT LEGS! But was packed so I couldn't see it. Returning it was PITA. "you should have opened and checked before you bought it!" Thats not I was told. Opening sealed item Is against store policy. "We can only exchange it for something right now for $25" There is NOTHING here I want for $25, can I get a store credit? "no" OK, well, I'm just going to stand right here until I get my money refunded. "I Guess I'll get a manager."
  3. Hey, just FYI, sometimes its easier and cheaper to make your own. I've used cables like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/SCSI-Kit-1-2-Enclosure-Internal-Flat-Cable-50-pin-1-Drive-Female-12-5/254311212880?hash=item3b36212750:g:kG8AAOSwXNdcmQmH and just added them to the back of some random 5.25 external case. You have a permanent SCSI ID , but you save a bunch of $. I was looking for some of the cases for the same reasons, but couldn't find anything under $50 + shipping. I've found old SCSI tape drives are you best bet if you want case $40 or under total cost. There are a couple of these for cheap on eBay right now if you don't mind SCSI2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-PowerVault-100T-SCSI-External-DDS4-Tape-Drive-Data-Storage-STD6401LW/274234622696?epid=1300349723&hash=item3fd9a842e8:g:TK0AAOSw8KxeMHVI:sc:USPSPriorityMailSmallFlatRateBox!55044!US!-1
  4. You can get about 90% certain. But to be 100%, crack 'er open. https://www.retrorgb.com/1chipsnes.htm Yes, they are. I've got one. But I like the clunky north American case with eject. Most people can tell the difference between s-video and RGB. But most would be hard pressed to see a worth-while difference between the 1 and 2 chip. I did notice a little less "blur" when I upgraded to my Jr.
  5. If you end up selling the SNES, let me know if the serial # starts with UN3********* or preferably, UN31********. I've been looking for a one chip SNES for my RGB stuff and would interested in buying it. Thanks
  6. 360. I think I need adapter to use with my 360(face plate model). I think this is the in-between one with single connector for the last models of the 360. Savers / Unique usually have at least one every other time I've been there lately. And under $10. I was at one last night that had 4 Kinects sitting in a pile behind the counter.
  7. First time posting in this thread, But $2.99 for a full wavebird kit.🤑 $6.99 for the Kinect and $2.50(half off!) for the cell phone. Haven't tested the game stuff, but the phone works and I can still use It on my Ting service.
  8. Subscribed. The videos look good. Watched the one on your book covering SNES games, I'll have to keep an out for them next time I'm at a book store.
  9. READ THIS: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-Power-Supply-Adapter-Part-No-CO62195-C062195-/302950897731
  10. Yup, I got half a dozen game gears sitting around waiting for new caps. And for me to not be busy / lazy. 🙄 This also reminds me, are your recapped macs still getting used?🕹️
  11. This was kind of gone over in this thread: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/269054-connecting-old-systems-like-2600-to-modern-tvs This is what I posted in that tread - great opinions for multiple RF inputs - plus cheap on eBay. Just copy a part # and search eBay - usually $5-25. Some have coax and RCA connectors. Here is a list from that thread with the radio shack / Archer switch types / part numbers. All are pretty cheap and work well. all coax (type f) unless listed. 15-1260 - white Push buttons - black with wood sides - 3 outputs (two select-able) five inputs with one RCA 15-1261 - same as 15-1265 but wood grain and bigger knobs 15-1262 - like 1261, but three out 15-1263 - powered 4 * 4 composite video + stereo ( not coax, but listed for info) 15-1264 - three out - no rca in - amplified 15-1265 - silver - five in - two out. one connector in a rca 15-1266 - Black push button - two out - five in - no rca 15-1267 - NES / sega automatic switch 15-1268 - OLD school atari style slide rf swtich - both 75ohm and 300 connectors 15-1269 - another old school rf switch - 300 ohm connectors only 15-2100 - black push button three out - no rca - amplified
  12. Your confusion has made me confused - All the cables we were talking about is to use the RGB 15khz out. The cable is Apple IIgs (only) db15 to scart 21pin. That cable is one VERY FEW ways to get RGB out a IIgs - most of the other solutions are adapters - RGB to component. Or, special internal card that output VGA 30khz. I think there is a box that connects to the 15pin on the back and converts the 15 to 30khz. Somebody has made a slot card that outputs HDMI too. This is the thread on Atari Age. Generally speaking, the SCART connector is used because most European monitors / TV used the SCART connector for RGB. So, now its easier to use SCART cables a good SCART switch. I have the gscartsw with my NES, SNES, 2600 and others. It works great. More info on good switches here - https://www.retrorgb.com/scartswitches.html The Apple II's have composite out as well. I would only use that If you are playing old Apple II games. The Apple II used a weird color "mixing" or "blending" that only looks "right" on a composite CRT.
  13. Pm me your address so I can get your a quote. (click my profile pic and the link at the top right that says send message.) But just a heads-up, it might be $15-20 for just shipping. I've ordered some Chinese knock-offs recently, but have got a chance to verify that they will work correctly. If they do I can send you a direct link as it may be cheaper. If they do work right, I will probably sell those for slightly cheaper - The ALPS Switches I have are running low as well.
  14. https://hotrodarcade.com/products/pokeyone-atari-pokey-chip-replacement-for-atari-arcade-games Before everyone gets too excited- These are for Atari arcade games. From the website: " Will PokeyONE work in my Atari 400/800/1200 home computer Regrettably, no. The Atari home computers require certain POKEY functions that are not supported in version 1.0 of the PokeyONE. Will PokeyONE work in my Atari 5200 or my Atari 7800 homebrew cartridge? Maybe...? We haven't tested PokeyONE in these applications, so we can't guarantee compatibility."
  15. Some of the tvs like that have "fine tuning" knobs - the knurled inside the knob. Does any thing else work on ch. 3?
