Hello friends - I just recently broke out my original 7800 and hooked it up to my HD TV using a Gold-Plated Phono-to-F Adapter. When I turn the system on, the screen goes black (no snow) and has two grayish-white vertical lines that go the length of the screen. I've tried two different Gold-Plated Phono-to-F Adapter's with the same result. I've also tried analog channels 2, 3 and 4 on the TV and it only happens on channel 3 (snow on 2 and 4). Same result with or without a cartridge. Any ideas from the group? Thanks -
Hi all, Can't believe I haven't signed up to this forum earlier as I am a big Atari fan ! But I have a bit of a dilemma regarding my Jaguar 64 machine. I have the RGB SCART lead (the ribbon cable type) and this works perfectly when connected directly to my TV (Panasonic Viera LCD). The problem is I have quite a few consoles that I like to leave connected. If I plug the Jaguar into either my small 3 SCART switch or VCR it starts to flicker every so often (My PS2 using the same setup works fine). Also, if I try extending the Jaguar lead with a coupler and another SCART lead I get the same issue. If I extend the switch with the coupler and SCART lead and plug the Jaguar into the switch I get flicker AND no sound. The thing is I'd quite like to run the Jaguar through a switch but may still need to extend the lead (either coming from the Jaguar or the switch). Does anyone have any ideas or what might work? Many thanks in advance . F4LL3N
Update: (11/8/17) - I decided to stick with the gold plated F-connector, coax- male to RCA Female and my Atari 2600 works great with a clear picture, with no lines or interference. I didn't need the RF interference Filter. RF cable from the Atari 2600 to the TV works great and so does the power plug. I’m a new member and have a few questions about the better connection (without soldering) for the Atari 2600 (original model with wood grain) model CX-2600 from 1978. I have a 2012 Samsung HD TV w/ 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio. Which is the better connection (picture, sound etc) the RF interference Filter (w/ gold plated F-connector, coax- male to RCA Female) or the Commodore 64 & 128 RF cable high performance shielded/grounded? Can this even go with the Atari 2600? The thickness of the RF cable/cord might be too large for the inside of the Atari 2600 (where the original RF cable/cord goes in) or it might not go with the system at all. Is there any grounded shielded cable/cord that I can use for the Atari 2600, better than the RF Interference Filter? I could just use the gold plated F-connector (coax) male to RCA Female and hook it via coaxial. I have read conflicting stories that the RF interference filter makes things better and sometimes there’s no difference. I also have a good working RF cable/cord. I’m new to all this, so my apologies if I’ve worded something incorrectly. Thank you. PS photos enclosed for better explanation.
