It's crazy to think that a current mITX board can do millions more than an old school arcade from 1982. Either way, I've still got plenty to do. Still have to discharge and clean the CRT. That'll be a project in itself.

As Neuro has mentioned you have the option to check on your market locally. Pittsburgh sounds pretty lame in that regard though so I thought I'd link what we've used in the past. We've used this store for backups when Amazon or Ebay are asking for unreasonable prices, or only have 1 or 2 of one thing so we need to compare:

GoatStore: A lot of variety, Intellivision, 2600, Dreamcast, NES, SNES, EVEN Tgfx.

Thank you! I'll definitely check it out. My priority right now is my Millipede semi-restore. Once that's done, I'll be going after the old systems that I lost. +1

Looking forward to seeing the Millipede restore : D , I have an Atari space dual PCB ; but finding a colour vector monitor isn't that easy now'a days .


Got my 19" Samsung CRT up and running using one of the converters , I did have to set up a level shifter for the composite sync as its 5V from the space invaders PCB and 3.3V max input for the converter .

Awesome work!! That's slick. And yes, vector monitors AND games are hard to come by without paying a mint for them. I'll try to update you guys more on the restore. The original art is staying, even with the damage and nasty yellow cig tar that I can't get completely off. So, I'm not the far from getting it done. I even gave the CRT (original Matsu****a in it's original chassis) a bath. I'm just fortunate that all serial numbers match on the thing.

But the rf adapter that's built in needs 9v... nothing else

This is really interesting, I have no reason to use RF because the NES has composite built in. Good to know that if I want to I'll need a different power brick.

It would make sense that it runs with that little voltage, the power supply I use says 7.5v.

I wonder if this makes any difference in games working correctly or not, my NES is finicky and I've tried everything from replacing the connector to boiling it, yet sometimes still have problems getting games to work. More often than not I just get a solid brown screen when I turn a game on. Usually if I take it out and put it back in it will start working.

Wolfsbora, you should get a NES and a couple of games first... it is, after all, the greatest console of all time.
