AV mod for Atari 2600/7800
« on: June 20, 2017, 16:36:47 PM »
Can anyone do a composite mod for either console?
Or recommend a reliable modder. In the UK.

Thanks.

Don't know any in the UK.  I know of a couple of people but they are in the US.

OK, thanks.
I've seen the mod boards for sale on ebay in the uk but I've haven't held a soldering iron in over 20 years so don't want to destroy any of my consoles!

I managed it ok on my 7800, there are guides for the 2600 Woody, 2600 Junior and 7800. If you do buy it, pay the extra for the wires to be pre-installed.
