Console hookup question, and classic gaming goodness
For some reason my boy wanted me to dig up a classic console out of the garage, for some classic gaming goodness.
After playing each of ten games for about five minutes and saying things like "it's the same levels over and over again?" (2600 Donkey Kong) and that the games were hard, and me explaining to him that an "arcade" was like Chuck E Cheese, only no ticket attractions just games, hopefully he has a better understanding of his gaming history. ("Ah-tair-ee? What does that mean?" I *wish* I still had my old Atari Age magazines...hell, even my old Sega Visions mags.)
Anyway, the pics are from my iphone in a somewhat darkened room, but the setup question is, why is the screen so fuzzy? I'm actually using a Nintendo AV switch, because that's all I could find, but that shouldn't make a difference should it? Is it likely to be the console itself, or the av cable?
I have the same problem upstairs on the Sega Genesis/CD/32x. It's playable, but fuzzy. (Some of the fuzziness is from poor photo conditions, but the display itself is still slightly fuzzy.) Cable through the AV switch is fine (well, the picture was, the quality of the content was still crap.)
I have nothing to say.
