In case anyone is interested in Eric7100's recent homebrew sales.

 

Here's the final stats of the money that he made from his third round of sales:

 

$778.08 (total money from sales) - $154.23 (packing/shipping expenses & PayPal/eBay fees) = $623.85 (total money left over)

 

Once again, Eric and Salt thank all of you who bought from them! :) :) :)

Thank again,for that update Rev...

Here are the printed power specs for the IntvII power supply. Was posted on eBay so I thought it might help someone that might be looking to repair/replace theirs.

so I am Australia , I want to buy an Intellivsion, say with HDMI output so I can run it on my modern TV, where would I get one? how would i know its reliable ?

I don't think an Intellivision that's either [modified] original or hardware emulation that has HDMI exists. You should be able to have an original Intellivision modified for composite or RGB and then convert that signal to HDMI. You'd have to do the modification yourself or look for one already done to come up on ebay. You can create a new topic here requesting modification services.

 

Have you considered software emulation with an HDMI computer?

I have, but I like the old controllers etc.. I have a flashback, but i wanted to play some of these new carts coming out , hence why I want a real hardware intellivsion.

You make a good point about the new cartridges. Sometimes the rom file is made available later, and in other cases it might never be available.

 

The old controllers and the flashback controllers do work on new computers with a USB adapter.

I picked up an Intellivision II this weekend at a local junk store, and not surprisingly it's missing the power supply. I've been doing a lot of reading on the power supply to see if I can avoid a $30 cost to get one online, but so far I am seeing a lot of information that does not jive with my experience:

 

- I have an OEM Jaguar power supply. The end does not fit into the power supply port on the back of the INTV 2.

- I have an OEM NES power supply. Same thing, doesn't fit.

- I have also tried a Genesis power supply, same result.

 

Unfortunately, I don't have a 5200 power supply to test. I'm not sure how folks in this thread and elsewhere are saying they've used the above power supplies and "they've worked", as they clearly don't fit into the end of the INTV 2.

I see what you mean about the other PSUs, sounds like at a minimum you'd have to replace the connector.

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/10392-intellivision-ii-power-supply/

 

I would get one of those "universal" sets with an adjustable power input and replaceable connectors, personally. Though I wouldn't care too much about a fried Intv2, as they're pretty blech even when working. Good luck!

Hi all.

Please I wanted to ask two questions about the Sylvania console.

 

1) In the CIB version, is the serial number of these consoles also printed on the box, or the box don't have write serial number ?

.. (for example, I have three box version of England Mattel Intellivision but none of these is written or the serial number sticker. )

 

2) It's possible to have a photo of the original Sylvania booklet that was inserted in its box ?

 

Thanks everyone in advance for the safe help.

My boxed system does have a SN on the box.

Would Mattel have had to release Sylvania, Tandy, and Sears-branded keyboard components if its test marketing had been successful? Would they have molded it in ivory for the Sears variant? Yikes.

If by any chance someone has a Sylvania console with box, serial number of the box that corresponds with the console, polystyrene and booklet that wants to sell,... I would be very interested.

 

Thank you

Doing the flea market thing today I was able to pick up an Atari 5200 power supply and can indeed confirm that it works just fine with the Intellivision 2. Cost me $10.

 

So, just a suggestion, but I would recommend amending the first post in this thread to avoid confusion and people spending money on things that won't work re: INTV 2 power supply.

 

In particular, I can confirm that these do not work, and if needed, can provide video evidence of it:

 

Some people say a Jaguar Power Supply will work, while someone else said the tip is not the same size.

The NES power supply does work with it. Just tested it.

Ya, some changes need to be made, but i don't have the power to edit it. There is also a mistake that the second half of those were possible power supply's for the ECS but i wrote Model 2 again on accident. The Nes Power Supply was meant for the ECS
