2600 mods

Postby Retrowaynie » Fri Jan 04, 2019 7:44 am

Hi,
What if any, are alternative mods for the 2600?
Other than removing the modulator?
Just curious what other people have done.

I converted mine to SVideo, it's pretty easy and gives about a 1000% picture quality improvement on a modern TV.

Yes it does, very good one.
The old cases can be very brittle, I wonder has anyone thought outside of the box(case) on this one?
I've a few the cases just crumble away.. Its not just limited to the 8bits machines though, I guess.
