Peritel/SCART Intellivision Display Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Here in the USA, a SCART Intellivision came to me from France. The SCART to HDMI converter box shows garbled output from the Intellivision, but the video overlay text from the converter is clear, so I think the TV and converter output are fine and there is a problem with the input. Can anyone comment on the right piece of converter hardware or corrective action to be taken on the Intellivision?

 

This guy from the UK has a "what not to get" recommendation, but no clear solution: https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/SCART-TO-HDMI-CONVERTERS-TO-AVOID

 

Thanks!

 

 

Here is the converter box I am currently using:

These converter boxes seem to have problems with Intellivsion RGB to HDMI. I didn't tested it on my Peritel Intellivision. But I tried it with my Intellivision II with RGB mod to use it on a capture device to get the best video from it. But it didn't worked. Now I use a composite modded Intellivision for this.

Reading over the sparse documentation I could find, there is an RVG signal? Would my life be better if I got an SCART to Component converter?

Can a 220v Intellivision be connected to a USA 110v ECS computer and keyboard and Intellivoice?

Yes.  The only minor issue will be that the AUX, TAPE IN, and TAPE OUT will run at the wrong baud rates (i.e. you can save and load your own tapes but not be able to share tapes with your friends).

No problem with tapes, I haven't used them since trying WSMLB 20+ years ago. I was afraid that there would be a Magic Smoke Release(TM) with an ECS (and System Changer) connected, thought there was power going over one of the cartridge port lines somewhere. Good to know!

 

Now, if I can just find the right color spray paint to change my gray ECS to brown...

 

Thanks.
