Hi,

I'm trying to connect my MD1 to my tv> i have used the RF cable but after a while I started getting a high pitched sound. Swapped RF leads and it was the same. I have tried headphones and the sound outputs fine. I'm thinking then to connect via AV out to see if it works. Would av out to scart - scart female connector to component work okay. This is all going to be routed via my AV receiver and my TV has no scart connections.

If anyone has any better ideas, I'd welcome them.

Cheers

I just used an AV Cable for my MD1. It's only about $10, and it works fine on my LCD TV. A quick search on Amazon lead me to this: https://www.amazon.com/Dotop-Sega-Genesis-Standard-AV-Cable/dp/B002FY0CM0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1515616941&sr=8-5&keywords=sega+genesis+av+cable

Another option would be to plug a speaker into the MD1's headphone jack, then just use the RF Cable as normal. It could be useful if you have a spare speaker lying around.

That being said, my MD1 is an NTSC model, however, I'm pretty sure this will work across all regions.

If you're from Europe then it isn't hard to find an old crt these days for cheap.
If you found one, I would recommend buying a RGB scart (or completely modifying your system, so that you have RGB and audio L/R from your DIN connector :P)

Yeah I have a few crts but wanted to play this i n my main gaming room. I need a bigger house really!

Fixed the sound. The TV tuning had drifted even though the picture was fine. Retuned and all good now.

Thanks for the input guys

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.

    But this is the general chit chat. Nobody responds to questions.

    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.
