Hi! I finally got my 7800 working with my 42 inch Visio TV following the method suggested by a post on AtariAge using an old VCR. I am so excited it worked! My next question is, when I hook it up the games are black and white which I recognize as an issue due to the signal conversion but is there any way that I can correct this? Modifying the system internally is not something I can or want to do. Any help would be very much appreciated!
Hi everyone, I'm trying to connect my old Atari ST to a flatscreen TV (Toshiba model 37RL853). I'm not 100% clear on all of the AV terms when it comes to connecting things, so bear with me, but this is what I've got so far: -- Atari ST - connected to mains (duh) and connected directly to the TV with a phono-to-RF connector (i.e. plugs into the coax input on the TV). -- TV is on ATV mode, not digital, and I've run a scan to tune it in -- It finds the Atari signal on Channel 50 but no matter how I try to fine-tune the signal, the best I can get is a dodgy, fuzzy signal which flickers and jumps about and also sometimres flickers red/B&W. -- The cable I'm using to connect is brand new from Maplins today so I doubt it's a faulty cable? Any ideas what might be happening here and more importantly, how I can get the Atari to work on the TV? Many thanks in advance for any help :-) Danielle
Hi all, I've been lurking a while to reading advice, but am a first time poster. I've just got my Atari 2600 and am so excited because I get to re-live all the memories I had as a child when I used to have one. I've read many of the forums on connecting it up but not 100% sure on the solution so would like to check something before going ahead. My problem comes with my TV. This particular TV does NOT have a F-type Coax input connector or component/composite input. It only has a non-screw coax out, HDMI, USB, SCART and the connection for the TV Aerial which I think you call RF input. This is the TV http://direct.asda.com/george/home-garden/tvs-brackets/polaroid-42-led-hd-tv-series-1/000554128,default,pd.html I have plugged the RCA from the Atari directly into the TV RF input. I get a good picture and it all works but I get no sound, just loud white noise. I understand that this is because the RF inputs can't handle both so I need another option. Looking at Switchboxes etc they still seem to have the F-type screw in for the Coax input so that's no good. So the only option I can think of is this: Can I plug the Atari RCA into a second hand VCR's aerial input and then use the scart from the VCR to the TV? Would that work? There may be a gadget or something else you may suggest but I don't understand the RF Modulator/demodulator thing. Is that an option and if so can someone point me in the right direction to the right one to buy? I assume it would go from RCA to HDMI or does that not work? Any advice would be more than welcome and hopefully once I am up and running I look forward to chatting about playing the Atari again for the first time in 30+ years. Many thanks. Tec.
Hi all, I've recently ordered a 130XE from the US. I live in France but this kind of machine became recently hard to find. So it was easier and cheaper to buy it in the US. I'll soon receive it, but I have some question regarding the connection: - What kind of power cable do I need to plug it? Does something like that will do the job? http://www.amazon.fr/HQ-P-SUP-32-HQ-Convertisseur-tension-vers/dp/B000MRY5CU Also I'll need to plug to computer, but also the floppy drive, which comes from the same seller. - What's the best way to plug the 130XE on the TV screen? Can I use a Scart cable or a AV composite cable? Or is there a better way? Thanks. Can't wait to receive and play with it!
