U.S.A. intellivision console in europe

Recommended Posts

So i got that super pro system which is possibly a "tutorvision" console.

 

The problem is that:

it has of course U.S. power supply cable

it has not tv cable.

 

I am concerned about the first one, what exactly i should do to get a power supply adaptor working in europe, without damaging the console?

i know that there are voltage issues, due to differences in the 2 continents.

 

About the tv cable, should a normal pal tv cable work?

 

Can you help me?

Hi Alex,
for the power supply you must use a 220 v to 125 v current transformer.
To connect to the TV you can use any console cable,
but you must have a TV that is multistandard and also has the NTSC system.

Can you send me an ebay / amazon link where to buy it?

120 volt to be more accurate.

 

You'll need an NTSC tuner (channel 3 or 4) not just a TV that accepts NTSC composite video.

Whether you use RF or Composite (ex: the above RF Tuner), the TV will need to be able to accept NTSC signals.

With composite he would get at least a black/white picture.

Maybe it's safer if Alex just sends it back to North America for safekeeping here with me. 🤔😂

Hi Alex, did you found something by now?

I found this in a German retro store: https://www.polyplay.xyz/PALNTSC-Mini-TV-System-Konverter-weiss

 

It converts every TV signal in any direction. PAL to NTSC, SECAM to PAL and so on...

 

I ordered one and will test it on one of my Intellivision 2 (where I can easily can replace the power plug) without AV mod.

Mike, keep us informed on the results of your tests. I'm very interested in such device.

I already got this converter.

It is a partial success. I assumed it would convert the RF (antenna) signal. But instead it is for CVBS signals. So you need a modded Intellivision. 

But it helps with older TVs that can't handle the NTSC CVBS signal like old Commodore monitors. 

 

Without the converter, the picture is b/w, With it, it's in color.

I use a NTSC USA Console in Sweden, I use a stepdown converter, but i never found a tv that could make the right picture, even modern tvs that i could scan in NTSC mode. So I modified the Console with Composite output. And then it works good.
