I'm looking for an RCA Studio II console with the switch box and power supply in working condition. I can either buy it or I have a few things I'm thinking of selling that I could trade instead: Microvision console with early screen rot but otherwise working with the box and 2 boxed games, loose Odyssey 1 console with 4 controllers - mostly works but the vertical line shows when it wants to and some of the controls are jittery, and a boxed Mattel Electronics Auto Race. Also have a Retro Tink I could part with since I've ended up not needing it.
I knocked another project off the list today by finishing up my 7800 s-video mod. I also recapped it and added RCA AV jacks. I bought longhornengineer's video board on eBay and highly, highly recommend buying from them. The s-video quality is absolutely superb. It's crisp and colorful, and still glows with that original warmth. The 7800 went from being the absolute worst video quality of any console I own, to nearly the top of the list. So far I've only been able to test it plugged straight to my TV, and it will improve when I'm able to run it through my Extron DVS-204 to a T-SLG. The mono audio is also excellent, but the composite video is nowhere near as good as s-video. Both are a huge improvement over RF obviously. I mounted the AV jacks on the back of the console, which is something I hadn't seen done before. If you go this route, make sure to get the exact s-video jack that I used. There isn't enough space inside that area for standard s-video jacks.
