To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Cable worked great! I found my old Intellivision in the garage, but couldn't find the cable. This cable worked great and was able to connect the Intellivision and get video and sound working again... kids enjoyed seeing what we played years ago...
While doing some late Spring cleaning, I became curious if my old Intellivision Super Pro System actually worked. It would power on, but I no longer had any cable for it and had only six game cartridges (that I could find so far) in storage with it. Decided to see how much a cable would cost to find out if it was running and perhaps show it my boys and even sell it if it were worth it.
Plugged this cable into the RF for the Intellivsion and used the included adapter (there were two) to plug the other end to the Coax connection on the TV. Set the channel to 3 or 4 on the Intellivision and bring that channel up on the TV. At first I was a bit worried it did not work as I was getting blank black screens. But one game had a bit of a result - a distorted screen somewhat but still came up. I did some more cleaning of the system and cartridges and started getting slightly better results. I wasn't sure if it was the cable or the system (system had been in storage a LONG time).
I was about to give up on having it 100%, but had left it on while I was busy doing some other work and when I came back to it, the screen was perfect! So it perhaps needed to warm up a bit, not sure. But I've since been able to verify every game works, the controllers work and the display is actually good.
I plugged this into a LG HD 24" TV I bought a few years back on sale. I took some pictures with my phone so I'll try to get those uploaded to show it all worked out. Overall I am happy it worked, just wish I had some of my other games to try out!
2019: I’ve been on a childhood nostalgia fueled Atari 7800 gaming binge. I’ve acquired a Sony Trinitron CRT television manufactured in 1997, probably one of the best devices I can find to connect my Atari in this day and age. I’ve been picking up modern "home brew" Atari games such as a pokey chip enabled Pac-Man Collection and the amazing Rikki & Vikki. Yet, using my original “TV/Computer” switch-box cable from the 80s, I would experience RF artifact issues in the form of moving distortions and blacks that weren’t true black in areas. And so, that is why I bought this RF/RCA cable. And wow! It was such a great improvement to the visual quality. The artifacts are gone, black is now true black, and it really makes the rest of the game colors pop! I had been toying with a RCA video mod conversion on my 7800, but I have no desire to do that now because I am extremely happy with the visual quality this cable provides. It’s a great price, excellent visual results, you can’t go wrong if you’re looking to continue your retro gaming experience on original hardware.
The product here worked as a video cord and it did provide video to the TV. The problem I ran into was that I still got the same, poor display of video, but I think it's because the new TCL Roku TV, doesn't like older systems. Even my plug and play joysticks that I have don't show up as well on the Roku TV.
The Atari Flashback works perfectly fine however on the Roku TV.
Final Thoughts: I'll need to try and find a small, 15 or 19" tube TV if I want to play my 93 Atari cartridges on an actual Atari console.
It’s bulky and too big for the Atari 2600. It is also super short, so I have my TV mounted on the wall and the console has to be right under it so, it is hard to play on the TV because you’re literally sitting right in front of the TV. I am keeping it to use for future testing, and testing only
I purchased this cable to replace the RF cable on my Atari 2600! But this cable's ends are to big to fit inside the 2600. I found many other uses for it! For example: hooking up my Atari 800XL computer.
