High Definition HD for your Retro Video Game Consoles
Jan 27, 2019
If you are looking to hook up an 1980's console to a 2019 television, then read one. The year was 1984 when the Nintendo NES consoles was released and televisions had nothing near what they have today. There was an old RF connector that you would screw on to the back and go to channel 3, and the signal would be relayed using this cable. You also had an option of an A/V cable which was 3 colors, yellow, red, and white. Two were for sound and one was for Video. Nowadays, you can't even play duck hunt on an LCD HD TV... :( The following is a short list of adapter's to hook up an old school system to your HD TV.
Nintendo NES & Sega Genesis 1 AV to HDMI Upconvert Adapter
Sega Dreamcast HDMI Cable
Nintendo Wii HDMI Adapter
Newly released vintage systems such as the NES Classic and SNES Classic come with HDMI cables already so you do not need to get converters or new cables. But if you have a collection already and need to spend less, than these adapters will get you a better looking experience.
