So I picked up an original, 1972 Magnavox Odyssey off of craigslist for $25 (with the shotgun, even). Woohoo! But I can't seem to figure out how to turn the VHF signal into something usable by a modern television. And by modern, I just mean a typical CRT from the 90's with coax in the back.
I bought one of these (http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2103912) from Radioshack, and it almost works. Two problems though:
- The two ends that need connecting are forks, and I don't have a screwdown platform to connect them, so I could only just touch them together to get a signal to go through.
- The resulting signal seemed like it was zoomed in too far (only showed part of the screen, as it was completely black until I moved the "ball" with the controller a bit), and scrolled bottom to top very quickly over and over.
Because of this, I get the feeling that I am trying to use the wrong kind of adapter. But what adapter should I be using?
