Plugging in old japanese video games

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this. I drew a picture!



I live in Sweden and have a TV that can handle PAL and NTSC through composite, I'm having a hard time getting it to recognize the signal from my Famicom through the antenna socket.

It's a Grundig 36".

Is there any equipment that turns a RF-signal into composite that I can use as well?

A VCR with a composite out would work. But what do you mean by having a hard time to recognize the signal?
Are you sure the output isn't directly composite? Try stripping a rca (composite) cable and connecting it to your tv that way.

That looks to be pretty old but the output is in NTSC-J for sure.

I think my TV can't scan the NTSC-J channels in the VHF-band that the videogame is operating on.

So I got it right? I buy that adaptor and plug it into the EU TV directly?

Or a NTSC-VHS and then do composite the last way to the TV?

NTSC-J and NTSC for the US/Canada is the same except that you have to put the brightness higher. It should sync right away on a NTSC TV. Also, if it doesn't work on channel 3, try channel 4(or 2 ) since Japanese VHF goes from 1-12 while US VHF goes from 2-13 and that game could be outputting to channel 3 in jap vhF.

And yes, that adaptor should do the trick, but it should still work in 300ohm...
