  1. I picked up an Odyssey and all 10 additional games. I'm starting to research the homebrews and see what is out there. If anyone has any information on any of these homebrews, I'd appreciate if anyone could link me to reviews, screenshots, auctions, etc. If you own any of these games and want to just say how fun it is, I'd appreciate knowing that as well. I'd also like to know if I'm wrong about the status on any of these or if there are more that I don't know about. Released Homebrews: Odball by Revrob Mentis Cohorts by Revrob (I know there's been a dispute about people not getting this one. Did anyone actually get a copy?)

  2. *UPDATED 27th of October* Current Timescale and process: 1) I have uploaded a video showing usage, shipping costs are now outlined below. 2) I will post within 7 days and give you confirmation of it leaving with an image through PM. Most US orders appear to be arriving within 5-10 business days! 3) We all get to enjoy our multicards! We seem to have had quite the surge in Magnavox Odyssey interest in recent weeks! For a long time I have wanted to get a hold of one of Boojakascha's Magnavox Odyssey Multicard . You can see more about his projects for the Magnavox Odyssey here on his website: http://www.boojakascha.ch/index.php?page=magnavox_projects And also his Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRNVSMZe1V3yUmIA9NGB3kg Where he reviews light guns and light gun games. And also here where he shows off the multicard: My reasons for this project are simple: a) its the closest thing to a "romcart" you can get for the system. b) Boojakascha has provided files for its reproduction, and naturally has had it working on the system. c) Games for the Odyssey is really really rare. I've only seen a handful of games go on ebay since I've got the system myself, and I've failed in all attempts to win any of them. While the base games are ok, a lot of the extra features is unique to the other game cards. This search becomes harder if you are outside the United States. d) If I go ahead with my RPG homebrew, I want everyone to be able to play on the same level without having to hunt for game cards, and also make it an enjoyable experience. If I could include the multicard with it, it would also allow those users the opportunity to enjoy all the features of the original Odyssey, without relying on fighting for ebay rarities. Production of these things is always cheaper in bulk, so what I want to do is to take the cost of buying a big order of them, and then pass on the savings to everyone else. I've been in contact with Boojakascha to ensure that what I get is going to be working as designed before I make the order, but I'm now looking for who might be interested in purchasing one (or more) of these so I can get a good sense of how many I should order. I will be getting at least 20, but the more I can get the cheaper it will be. I've already got quotations from several companies who will be ready to go with the order as soon as I finalise it, so they could be ready to go as early as the end of June. How much will it cost? I'm currently setting the cost per unit at £20/€23/$25 USD/$35 AUS, this includes VAT for production at 20% and delivery to me, and this will not include postage and shipping to you. See below for Shipping Costs. Delivery costs and time? Please note due to the current world crisis, not all services will be running as normal, expect potential delays. Stated times and tracking will be based on pre-crisis expectations. Signed for services may have different procedures (in UK, the postman marks it as delivered for you). To save costs, I'll be using pre used packaging where possible. Based on quantities of 1: United Kingdom: £3 for Royal Mail 1st Class signed for, or £5 for 24 hour Tracked and signed. (Total: £23 or £25) Europe: €4.50 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for €11. Both services is listed as 3-5 business days. (Total: €27.50 or €34) Australia (mainland): $AUS 7.50 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for $AUS 18. Both services is listed as 6-7 business days. (Total: $AUS 42.50 or $AUS 53) United States (mainland): $5 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for $14. Both services is listed as 6-7 business days. (Total: $30 or $39) Quantities of 2 or more: If you are from United States, 2 multicards will now cost $65 for tracking - this has gone up by $2.5 because of recent currency exchange changes. slydc: Requested 2 copies and is reserved - we have PM'ed about cost when you are ready to pay. Arcadeshopped: Requested 5 copies, due to value, for insurance purposes you can only get the tracked and signed service for $18 - Your total will be: $143. Where would payment be expected? Send money via paypal to [email protected], under friends/family if you can - as you are all my friends, and you are getting this as close to cost as I can afford to. Please state your name and address in the note - and your username so I can tick you off! Don't worry about the amount I receive, I have rounded up costs slightly to compensate for this. If you are unable to use paypal let me know what other potential options you would like to try to pay in. What if I want more than one? Let me know where in the world you live, and I'll give you an updated shipping price. Will this work with the Rifle games? Yes, this was one of Boojakascha's original purposes for making it, I don't have the Rifle for the odyssey myself to test it with, but it should work as intended. What games does it play? You should be able to play all the original game card variants for the original Magnavox Odyssey system, and many of the homebrew that has been produced since. Note that some homebrew have custom hardware and one or two have custom game cards; these will NOT likely to be replicated with this multicard. The switches may also help to produce unique effects, but I don't think this has been documented yet. When is the earliest this could be ready? I have all the units, but I will individually test them before sending them out for verification. I will aim to go out as often as I can to ship, but might be every few days to avoid exposing myself too much outside. I will send a PM with an image of your package on the day it leaves my house. Have you done anything like this before? Nope! But I always deliver on everything else I've done before, and I'm not going to disappear anytime soon. By taking the hit of the immediate cost myself I'm hoping we can all benefit. Who will receive it first? There should be enough for everyone who has currently requested some, once I've received them I will give details on how to pay. Due to the current crisis, I am avoiding going out where possible, but I will aim to send packages within 7 days of payment cleared. How will I be able to pay? Paypal is widely used and has always worked for me, but let me know if this is not possible. You can pay by paypal without having an account and using your regular bank details. I will update status for these users as orders is payed/shipped eebuckeye: 2 - paid & shipped stupus: 2 - paid & shipped Atari2008: 1 - paid & shipped BuckeyeFan_4eva: 1 - paid & shipped retrogmr: 1 - paid & shipped Andrew Davie: 1 - paid & shipped ManCaveArcade: 1 - paid & shipped RampantOctous: 1 - paid & shipped rayik: 1 - paid & shipped ubersaurus: 1 - paid & shipped Dastari Creel: 1 - paid & shipped mario64: 1 - paid & shipped Alaskaman: 2 - paid & shipped Marcus Englert: 1 - paid & shipped arcadeshopper: 5 - paid & shipped David.H: 1 - paid & shipped towmater: 1 - paid & shipped slydc: 2 - paid & shipped pokemontrainer: 1 - paid & shipped mckafka99: 1 - paid & shipped zhorton: 2 - paid & shipped high voltage: 1 - reserved PsychedelicShaman: 1 rpgcollector: 1 Max remaining: 15
  3. I’ve had my odyssey for a while now and it’s worked perfectly since purchase, I’ve been using it on a ‘94 or so CRT and just recently bought a Curtis Mathis ‘81 to better fit the era (believe me i looked for a 70s... impossible) but now that it’s hooks to this older tv, it’s grainier (not the main issue) but now the wall won’t show! I’ve heard this being an issue before but it was never one for me so I never knew how to fix it. Also there are so many dials on this tv that I have no clue what they do I’ll attack some images if anyone could help me out
  4. WHAT IS ZOMBIE OUTBREAK and what makes it special? Zombie Outbreak is my 3rd homebrew game for the original 1972 Magnavox Odyssey system, the world’s first video game console. This is the SECOND homebrew game for the 1972 Odyssey that uses the Rifle Accessory (My Hunting Adventure was the first). This game will also feature a NEVER BEFORE RELEASED CUSTOM GAME CARD that makes this game possible. The FIRST custom game card for the Rifle accessory! This is also a SINGLE PLAYER game which is rare for this system however there is a multiplayer game option. GAME DESCRIPTION: STORY: Deep in an underground lab at an undisclosed location, a virus was created while doing research on a biological warfare program. Routine experiments were performed on live human captives. Their bodies piled up outside as they perished from the virus. They thought that the virus would die along with the dead but something else happened. The virus started to mutate and survive inside their flesh. The Zombie Virus was created! The bodies became re-animated and attacked the lab workers, feeding on their flesh. The virus spread through their bites which started the “Zombie Outbreak” that soon spread over the world. A small group of survivors decided to fight back and formed the Z.D.F. - Zombie Destruction Force. This group is dedicated to the cause of eliminating the Zombie population. Your best chance at survival is to join this team. You must prove yourself worthy by passing a series of tests and missions. GAME PLAY: I don’t want to give too much away about these Top Secret Missions that you will find inside each Secret Mission file folders included in the package but I will say that the game starts out in a “Training Phase” where zombie heads are launched DIAGONALLY across the screen after being fired out of a modified war cannon. You must be able to shoot 5 in a row with only one round per head in order to move on to your next mission. This is like Skeet Shooting in the Apocalypse. There is 3 different game overlays and 4 different missions each with a unique style of game play so that it does not get repetitive. To WIN at this game in a single player game mode you must complete each challenge back to back. If you fail one mission you DIE and must start from the beginning. This adds a nice challenge to the game and it’s really fun to try and make it all the way through. CUSTOM GAME CARD DESCRIPTION: This custom game card I designed has multiple advantages and will be used in different ways throughout this game. This brings a new level of excitement and challenge to the Rifle that was not possible before such as the DIAGONAL flying target used in the Zombie Head Cannon. Another NEW feature with this game card is the ability to launch the target with only the push of 1 button which makes setting up each game mission a lot easier than ever before. Game card 9 required a second person to move the target and game card 10 was a pain to get the target set up with both player controllers and both English controllers. All you have to do with this card is set ONE target with ONE controller in a certain position as described in each mission file and press a button, that’s it! This feature makes it possible for a single player to be able to launch his own target without the need for a second player. Another NEW feature with this game card is that it had different effects with different reset buttons and different set up procedures. This really adds another level of unique game play to the Rifle that was not possible before adding new challenges. GAME CONTENTS: 1. A FULL SIZE professional hand built Limited Collector’s Edition box numbered 1-25 of 25 (You can reserve your number if available, AA members that bought my H.A. will have first opportunity to get a matching number) See picture for size comparison to original game box. 2. A matching certificate of authentication. 3. NEW designed Custom game card. This is a unique game card that has NOT been released before! It is required to play and this game would not have been possible without it. This game card will look totally different than the original Magnavox cards. Picture coming soon. 4. (3) Large size game overlays. These overlays are larger than the original “small” overlays but slightly smaller than the original “large” size overlays. They look and work great! 5. A standard size and formatted instruction sheet 6. 4 TOP SECRET mission file folders. Each one of these when open up, contain a description of the mission and game play instructions. 7. Zombie Outbreak First Aid Kit 8. Plastic box protector case to keep your game safe during shipping, storage and looks great for your display. Thanks, Stupus for the tip! I decided to buy a bunch of these and include them as part of the game release to help protect them during shipping. I worked so hard to make these I want them to reach you safe and sound. What is NOT included in this game that is needed to play? · Original 1972 Magnavox Odyssey system · Electronic Rifle (Unless it is the Deluxe kit) How much does it cost? This game will be slightly more expensive then the last release due to the following additional costs: Custom game card, Clear box protector included, purchased key board boxes for shipping (It was too much work making custom shipping boxes so I purchased keyboard shipping boxes that are slightly larger) $85 Plus shipping OFFICIAL RESERVATION LIST: * LIST KEY: [(P) = PAID] [(S) = SHIPPED] [(D+R)= DELUXE PACKAGE + RIFLE] [(D-R)= DELUXE PACKAGE - RIFLE] [(NUMBER BY NAME) = L.C.E.

(D-R) Beside your name. I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY MONEY UNTIL ALL OF THESE GAMES ARE BUILT AND READY TO SHIP! The first prototype game is mostly complete and the rest are still in the production process. I am doing this pre-order based on your integrity to pay in full at the time of project completion which is estimated sometime in MAY or JUNE at the latest. So to reserve your copy, you must make a post here AND send me a PM with your FIRST AND LAST NAME, FULL SHIPPING ADDRESS (This is required to determine shipping, identify you when you make a Paypal payment and for actual shipping), and I will add you to the list. Please do not get on the list if you are not 100% certain that you want one and are willing to pay. I am only making 25 copies of this game because it is such a time consuming (and expensive) project so I don’t want to turn away any serious members who want one and then end up with extras due to non-payment. Be assured that this is a ManCaveArcade quality project and I WILL DELIVER IN A TIMELY MANNER. If there is any delay at all for any reason, you will receive weekly updates. My last games got great reviews so feel free to check out my old pre-order threads for feedback. MORE PICTURES COMING SOON!
  5. I'm setting up my Magnavox Odyssey (the original from 1972), and I have a few questions about TV's, given the overlays that are required for the Odyssey games. I have a 40" LED Vizio and the Odyssey works on it and gives a pretty decent image, however given the size of the screen the the bezel is too far for me to safely tape the overlays onto it. The other option for getting the overlays to stay on the TV during game play would be to tape it onto the TV screen itself, would there be any potential harm to the TV in doing that? Or is there some type of tape or adhesive which would be safe for using on the TV screen itself? Another thought I had is that I could get a smaller cheap flat screen TV, I used to have a 26 inch in which the overlays fit very nicely actually, I could possibly get a new TV in the 20-something inch range that would be just for the Odyssey (and since it would be a back up if there were any damage to the screen it wouldn't be too bad). Or would the ideal set up be a traditional CRT TV? Thank you for your thoughts and comments, and I hope everyone is doing well.
  6. I have a working rifle with everything it needs to play all the games, I have extra overlays from the main games and extra rifle overlays, and then I have three of the extra gAmes from 72, invasion, baseball, and handball, I also have a flattened empty wipeout box. If you’re interested in any of them comment below and I’ll tell you what price I’m thinking!
  7. Hello, I’m wondering if anyone can identify the wood type the Magnavox odyssey uses on its woodgrain patter, I want to duplicate the pattern with another odyssey inspired project. Does anyone know the type or at least a good substitute? It’s a darker woodgrain
  8. I have the original Odyssey (the one released in 1972), and I was wondering since the original AC adapters are a bit hard to find, is it compatible with any other AC adapter? I'm fine using the batteries but figured it would be better to just plug it into an outlet rather than cause any wear and tear to the battery compartment.
  9. New to the board. I am a toy dealer/broker. I recently found a copy of what is supposedly a very rare prototype cartridge of Probe 2000 War Room. Can anyone verify or provide more information about this cartridge? Thank you, Sherif Owner Secondplay.com

  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3dPiLobTas I guess he can f**k us out of our money for an odyssey game(homebrew) we are supposed to get. But still makes youtube videos. I do not want to be an a hole but I sent him many emails trying to work out a deal. He is a liar. I collect for fun and a hobby and hate to bring negativity into this but this guy is a scammer.
  12. Hey everyone! I'm continuing my "I'm Broke Sale" and I'm putting up two Magnavox Odyssey 2 homebrews: AstroDodge Color Clash Both games come with the hard plastic cases (like the European releases) with an end label, plus manual and cart. $55 each or $110 for both. PM me if you're interested. Thanks for looking! Jose
  13. So, I've been looking through the forums to see if anyone has had the same issue as I have, but I haven't been able to find anything. Last week, I purchased an O2 that looked to be in really good condition. I turned the console on and was able to get to the "Select Game" screen, but couldn't get past it. I tried different carts and it seemed that pressing a number to choose the game did nothing. I figured something might be wrong with the keyboard, so I decided to buy another O2, but it seems to have the same issue. Has anybody had this problem before, and if so, is there any way to fix it? I really don't want to have to look for a third O2 and would like to fix these if possible.
  14. We are readying our next release of newly developed Odyssey hardware and games: OdysseyNow Game Pack 2! The largest focus will be on hardware, as this will contain the most consequential hardware add-on in the Odyssey’s history. It will make new games possible, as well as have a major impact on many existing games. We call it the English Splitter. In the original Odyssey controller, three knobs and one button control every aspect of the player spots and the ball. The problem is that the human body only possesses two hands, and thus we can operate a maximum of two knobs simultaneously. This affects every Odyssey ball game, as the hand and brain must “switch gears” from controlling the Vertical knob to controlling the English knob (ball spin). This gap of time involved slows down the games. One of the greatest Odyssey ball games, Volleyball, is terribly hindered by this: there just isn’t enough time to lunge after the ball, hit it, then switch to the English knob fast enough to direct the ball over the net and then down into the opposite court. As a result, the game has to be played on a relatively low ball speed. The English Splitter is a device that plugs into your controller socket (there’s one for the Left and one for the Right; each is electronically equivalent but physically different). Each English Splitter is connected by a cable to a special English Controller, which contains one knob and one button. The Splitter also contains a duplicate controller port into which you plug your original controller. Thus when both Left and Right Splitters are plugged in, you will have four controllers in total. Each Splitter contains a switch that turns the English Controller on or off. When on, it takes over control of the English knob from the main controller (turning the main controller English knob will have no effect, but turning the knob on the English controller will give that player full control over ball spin). When the Splitter’s switch is turned off, full control is transferred back to the main controller. This way you will never have to plug and unplug your controllers and Splitters in order to instantly switch between classic and split modes. In addition, the yellow button on each English Controller allows the holder of that controller to serve the ball. This makes it possible for a single player to, for instance, return the ball to their own side without requiring possession of the other player’s main controller. This can be used in the original game Submarine or the OdysseyNow game Tannhauser Gate, for instance, to greatly ease gameplay. The English Splitter system can also be used to multiply the number of players from 2 to 4. Any ball game can now be played with 3 or 4 players, with English control transferred to a second player on each team. It can be used to great effect in nearly any ball game. Our new version of Volleyball, Team Volleyball, makes full use of this capability: Note: This image is a simulation. Our game comes with a half-height overlay. In addition to Team Volleyball, this game pack includes Danceoff, a new ball game that is meant to be played for the duration of one pop song. It involves attempting to “knock” the opposing side’s dancers off the dancefloor. This game can be played 2-player, but when played with 4 players using the English Controllers, it becomes a team dance in which one player defends the team’s dancers while the other goes after those on the opposing side. The dancers are plastic chips that are physically stuck to the overlay and removed as they are defeated. Before the game begins, players may either choose a pattern for their dancers to occupy or randomly generate their positions with two included, color-coded dice. The third game included in this game pack is a reproduction of the rarest of all original Odyssey games: Soccer. Soccer was only released as a bundled game with some European releases of the Odyssey. Because the Odyssey did not do well in Europe, and not many sets have been preserved, the game is almost impossible to find. We have lovingly reproduced the overlay, instructions, and dual-wheel scoreboard in all of their detail, allowing this game to be played by a new generation. Note, however, that our scoreboard is 85% of the size of the original. We had to made it slightly smaller to be cost effective to produce, and to fit in our tube box. The overlay is reproduced with filled-out corners for a rectangular shape, to better fit more contemporary televisions. However, the original rounded contour is preserved as a thin line in the overlay, so players may cut out the original shape if they wish. The English Splitter sounds deceptively simple, but inside it is anything but: the unique analog nature of the Odyssey makes simple pass-through circuits impossible, and multiple versions of this device failed before a year of development finally lead to the breakthrough (specially implemented diode logic) that made it possible. It is also very time consuming and expensive (using obsolete, discontinued components) to manufacture, or we would be able to make more and charge less! In order to get the most out of Team Volleyball (or even regular Volleyball), this Pack comes with a Wall Height Adjustment kit. This is an optional upgrade. It requires two solder points on the Odyssey’s motherboard, and some hot glue for the final adjustment pot. It is an easy upgrade to perform and comes with fully illustrated instructions. When used with the Team Volleyball overlay, you can adjust your wall height to exact spec. Most Odysseys are well out of spec for wall height, which can greatly diminish this game. This game pack confers a couple of advantages to Tannhauser Gate, for owners of OdysseyNow Game Pack 1. First, you can adjust the height of the open gate with the Wall Height adjustment. Second, the Scan player can utilize an English controller to return their ball without needing to reach over and utilize the Explore player’s controller. We have several more amazing games in development that make special use of the English Splitters. Those will appear sometime in the future. Because our last game pack sold out within a few hours of being posted, we’re trying to manage this release a little more equitably, in two tiers. The notice for the first 10 copies will be posted in the OdysseyNow Facebook group (only), to give that community the best chance of picking these up. We're letting everyone know this in advance, to give you time to join that group and turn your notifications on so you are ready. Once those copies are gone, we'll post elsewhere (such as in this forum). At that time, anyone who wants one will have to let us know (very briefly) why/where/who. We'll give it a few days to ensure that more people will know about this in time, then select the homes we think will be happiest, and then process payments. This will also help us get to know more of you better! We will produce only 15 of these sets in total. Stay tuned to the Facebook group for orders to open soon! https://www.facebook.com/groups/odysseynow/
  15. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and i'm trying to get myself around to posting I live in australia and it is completely impossible for me to find a Magnavox odyssey without paying 300-400 on ebay for one. I understand it would not work on a PAL tv set, it would be for collecting purposes. Does anyone here have one they would be willing to sell, boxed preferebly! Thanks
  16. Hi guys, I have recently gotten my hands on an Odyssey 2 and it's "The Voice" module. After hooking everything up, I tried my copy of Smithereens! and found that the sound comming from The Voice was rather quiet. I suspected that the capacitors needed replaced, so I ordered a kit and installed them. After the installation I noticed a little improvement (the sound was not audible with the volume at max), but the sound is still very quiet. Has anyone here ever experienced something similar? Are there other possible common defects I can look into? I have read around that The Voice originaly came with it's own power adapter. I only have the stock AC adapter that came with my Odyssey 2 unit (11.5V, 400ma). Could this be the culprit? If so, what are the power specs of the adapter that came with The Voice? Thanks for any advice.
  17. So at Saturday's Open House at the Personal Computer Museum we received an incredible donation. Coming in at a staggering 28 boxes of (mostly) Atari stuff, we haven't even BEGUN to sort through all of the vintage goodness in here. However, it deserves special attention and I thought I would share it with the community. The donor used to work with Richard Adams of Happy Computers Inc. and all of his computers and drives were totally modded and tricked out. He was kind enough to leave us some instructions from the switches and so on. If that wasn't great enough, there was a Heavy-Sixer Atari 2600 (in the original box I might add) and dozens of original text-only label Atari 2600 carts, and an ORIGINAL MAGNAVOX ODYSSEY complete in the original packaging (and even the OUTER packaging). You have to see it to believe it. There was even one of those Atari Mickey Mouse pins in the package. There is more to discover, but for now go to this link (with pictures) to see what we received: http://www.pcmuseum....n_raszewski.asp Let me know what you think!
  18. While playing around with some ideas for my upcoming RPG game, First Fantasy - particularly overlays and a rulesheet / book; I thought I'd crack a shot at something even more basic. This is possibly the first formal demake of game, where the "graphics" and gameplay is intended to be as particularly close to an existing commercial game as possible for the Magnavox Odyssey. Whats even better is that the attachments provided is all you need to start playing it! You can also use (with the aid of a capture device) the overlay as a transparent image in a program such as OBS to play the game without having to print your own overlay, so happy days! As this is a fangame of an existing commercially released game - even if it was originally for the Channel F - I am releasing this as "free licence" - that is, you can do with it what you want, although I would appreciate if nobody was to package this up either digitally or physically to sell for profit. However, if you are supplying it free/at cost as part of a pack of games which may or may not be being sold for profit, then I am happy for you to do that (this is particularly for projects like OdysseyNow if they are interested in adding this to an existing pack they may release in the future). I've used graphics from the original game to produce the overlay file, and have written instructions on how to play it. It should play similar to the original "Submarine" game, but with some different game mechanics. I can't say I've actually tried to play this on a real Odyssey yet, as I have no friends - anyone who gets a chance to try this out I would greatly appreciate feedback on whether anything should change. Obviously, as this is the Odyssey, only one player can fire, and the other player must try to run away. Other than that, I've tried to preserve as many of the original features as possible. It might even be more fun than the original game. Maybe. Space War (Odyssey) Demake.odt
  19. I already have a Magnavox Odyssey, yellow color, with all disks and Rifle. It's a RUN 2 Yellow Magnavox Odyssey. I'm looking forward to buy 2 things: 1)A white Magnavox Odyssey. If it's RUN 1 or 2 it doesn't matter, I only care that it's white. 2)A Magnavox Odyssey Handball #8 game. Unfortunately I lost 2 good auctions this week (didn't get on time and one was selling it at 19,9 dollars!) and I hadn't seen the game on Ebay for over one month! It's the only game missing from our collection as we are planning a History of Video games show (in our YouTube channel) and we need to present all Magnavox Odyssey's games, so that one must fill at least the 10 basic Odyssey disks. * PS Those of you that leave in USA, please check your local retro market store, friends or anything nearby. You can earn money easily from me by selling it even double price. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you.
  20. I bought my first pong console today, it was complete with everything, and it outstanding shape, like it had barely been played. The price was right so I picked it up, however I am having issues with getting video. It did not have an adapter, (I think they did not come with them,) so I hooked it up with batteries. Now, I have no problem with the sound, it comes out loud and clear, however I cannot seems to get anything to show up on screen. First I tried using an old analog TV, hooking it up with the antenna spades, but no dice. I remembered I have another compatible RF switch and tried that but again, no luck. So, I tried using a coaxial adaptor and hooked it to a newer CRT, but again I cannot get the picture to show. So I am at a loss as to what is causing this, the PCB looks fine but I have not inspected it too closely yet and I was looking at the proprietary jack and I can;t tell if something is off, as I have never seen one before. I can try and get pics up later if necessary..
