They didn't bother to correct the spelling of colour on the front cover.

 

I'm sure the sports licenses were limited to north america.   I doubt it would hurt sales in other parts of the world.  I wasn't offended that intellivision football has one down too many.

Hi.

I recently added several -810 boxes, all from the U.K. I wonder if sports licensing was only allowed for U.S. market, or deemed undesirable or unnecessary or even bad for sales in external markets. I haven’t combed through the -0820 manuals looking for “British English”-isms.

The box itself could have been sold in any english speaking country outside north america.  G1 means it's a revision, probably a change to the text somewhere on the box; same with the instructions.  Intvfunhouse is not complete.

 

 

Thank you very much for having clarified my doubt. 🤗

 

Do you think I should consider this box a little bit rare or surely there will be many copies with the G1 variant?

the question was maybe already asked...but did someone save those pages with all the game explanations, if I remember well each game history and how they came to be was well described.....

The box and screen images are larger on the new pages, which is nice. But it doesn't look like the detailed information about the unreleased games is available anymore. There's just this page.

Help for a strange console (for me)

 

Hi everyone. I have a question. Can anyone tell me in which country this intellivision could be?

I thought it could be from Australia....but....

 

--- It has a serial number that appears to be Australian (RH 1013843) comparing the list of serials on the intellivision revolution.

--- It has the channel selector "0 and 1" and not "3 or 4" as European or American.

---Is a PAL system.

 

The strange thing, however, that made me ask this question, is that, .... the model is not "3668" as I think Australian consoles should be and it always appears on the list but... "5155".

 

Can anyone tell me something about this?

 

Thank you for your time.

Didn't Italy have model 5155?  What kind of electrical plug does it have?  There must be other countries that had a channel 0.

Thanks for reply.

 

--Yes, the 5155 model is mainly Italian.

--He did not have the power cable and therefore I do not know what type of terminal / male socket on the cable he could have.

---I understand that only Australia had channel  "0"  as TV channel. (with 46,25 Mhz video carrier.) Of course I can be wrong if someone knows that there are other countries that have had this "0 channel" 

In Europe / USA / Africa / Asia this channel on analogue TV did not exist. 

I want to better specify what I mean, some Italy TV sets had the tuner that could have received this frequency, but there were no TV signals broadcast under channel 03. - A-13 -
In Europe the standar for Intellivision was the ch. 03 (with 55.25 Mhz video carrier) and ch. 04 (with 62.25 Mhz video carrier). Also for France in Secam Intellivision had a ch. 03 (with 60.50 Mhz video carrier) and a ch. 04 (with 63.7 Mhz video carrier). As for UK, the signal was in UHF. Also in the United States NTSC and in Brazil the same channels 03 and 04 (with video carrier 61.25 and 67.25 different TV lines).


For this reason, for me this console is a "mystery".  🤔

It could be Italian as regards the 5155 model, but in Italy the signal on channel 0 and I'm sure of this did not exist.

 

 

PS  ... only for for a curiosity regarding the tuning of TV channels. The Intellivision Bandai Japan, just for my personal experience, is able to tune on the S45 and S46 band (91.50 and 97.75 MHz) with difficulty (weak signal) on modern TVs as they have inserted a filter to cut nearby frequencies on the tuner as in Italy the 88-108 Mhz frequency spectrum is occupied by FM radio stations.

Maybe the markings on the rf modulator gives us more information.

 

I forget that unlike model 2609 other intellivision models had an external socket for the power cable.

 

What's the difference between an italian 5155 and a german 5370?

Sorry late reply. ..I was busy finishing the guide of the Mattel games that I just published.
For me there is no difference, as regards the PAL output RF signal, between the German and Italian consoles.
