  1. If you happen to have a photo of an INTV with the controllers on the console that would be cool too. Just really want to see how it looks when the controllers are sitting on the console since on the site there's just a close-up photo of one controller. Love the idea for the product though and I may end up buying it either way because the only other option would be to buy a whole other console with controllers that are in good shape.
  2. I need to replace the metal discs on a few of my Intellivision controllers. Was wondering if anyone here who's bought them could comment on how close they are to the originals. In the photo on the website they seem quite a bit different and wasn't sure how good they would look if they're very different from the gold on the console itself. Thanks!
  3. Finally got around to reflowing all the connections on the RF board this morning and it worked! I can't believe it! Now I've got 2 working CVs and one to go once that RAM replacement kit arrives! This one's going to a friend of mine who grew up with the CV but hasn't played it since. Thanks again guys for all the help I really appreciate it.
  4. That makes a ton of sense! Thanks guys, this has helped a lot!
  5. Thanks for the reply! Sorry for my ignorance but just so that I understand 100% what you're saying, why does clipping the legs first make it safer? Won't I have to desolder the legs from the board anyways once I've clipped off the chips? But this seems doable! Thanks a lot for the help. I'll take a look at the other parts that you recommended and put in an order later today!
  6. Yeah no sorry I don't have any static whatsoever unless I play around with the pot. Otherwise it's completely silent until I put pressure on the board which then snaps the audio in perfectly. Thanks for the help with this. I should be able to get around to it this weekend. I'll be sure to report back the results here!
  7. Ah ok that's good to know, I was wondering whether I was going to have to get to the underside of the board. To reflow all the connections should I just go one by one reheating up all the solder points on the RF board basically? And thanks for the reply!
  8. Thanks for the replies guys! So this is the kit you would recommend? How easy would this upgrade be for someone who doesn't have a ton of experience with electronics? I'd like to do this myself if possible, but don't want to do anything that I'd have a better than 50% chance of messing up and killing the CV altogether. Also while I'm putting in the order for this, is there anything else you'd recommend me picking up? I'm paying for shipping anyways, may as well make it as worthwhile as possible.
  9. Hey guys, this is the second post I'm reviving because I actually have 2 ColecoVisions that aren't working properly. The first one has video but no audio, and the second has audio but only garbled video. I've disassembled and cleaned the power switch and it made no difference and have tried 3 different power supplies none of which improve the situation (I have one working CV and it works fine with all 3 power supplies). I've attached an image of what the video looks like. Hoping to fix at least one of these because I'd like to gift it to a friend who grew up with a CV but hasn't played it since he was a kid. I've seen in other similar threads that this may be a RAM issue? Just thought I'd bump up this post to make sure I'm getting the most up-to-date recommendations on how I should go about fixing this. I don't really know a ton about electronics but am not against learning.
  10. Just reviving this thread because I also have a CV with video but no audio. I found this reddit thread that describes the issue I have. I've tried adjusting the pot and that did nothing, but if I press down on the RF board as described in that thread I can occasionally get sound back. Any ideas about what the issue might be? I'm no electronics expert but I can do basic soldering. Any help would be appreciated!
  11. Thanks guys I couldn't get it to work properly yesterday but I admittedly didn't spend a huge amount of time on it. I'll hopefully be able to give it another shot tonight. Thanks again.
  12. I just received my adapters today! Anyone have an idea about how to get 2600 paddles working on a MiSTer? Doesn't seem to be immediately obvious.
  13. Thanks for the reply. That's great to hear. So once I can switch the firmware on the MiSTer itself then this adapter should perform equally to any other adapter in terms of performance? Cool. Just wasn't sure whether there would be any advantage (latency or otherwise) to purchasing different adapters for my CX40's and Genesis pads. I guess I can just stick with these for now and wait for the switcher to be ported over. Thanks again!
  14. Hi. I just ordered 4 of these to use my 2600 paddles and ColecoVision controllers with my MiSTer. I just bought a bunch so I don’t need to keep switching the firmware, but I was wondering whether there was any functional difference between these and the Raphnet or DaemonBite adapters for Genesis and Atari CX40 controllers. Those ones just come up first when Googling around so I was curious whether all these perform identically basically.
