Re: Using a MD PSU on a Famicom

Solved it myself, all MD mk1's have the same output on their PSU which matches the Famicom, 10V DC with the centre pin as Negative, MK2's weirdly have the centre as positive.

Now to find an RF as all of mine appear to have disappeared off the planet.

Re: the Hi-Fi thread

I have heard Higher end stuff will working on vintage gear, while I can tell analouge from digital I just don't notice the wire thing, its the same with Car audio, I've not noticed difference between full rewires and regular upgraded drivers and tweeters.

Re: Games genres that you just don't like

I could never get on with Text adventures or RPG's that are too text heavy, RTS's can grate on me in some cases too. Tennis, Football etc, they can all quite frankly go the way of the Oodlum Bird, its essentially the same muck every release and ends up Bargin bin fodder or the 'free game' when you b...

Re: the Hi-Fi thread

Using a MD PSU on a Famicom

Has anyone every done this and if so has there been any long term issues? I know the NES ones no good and will kill it but I've been told and have been reading on other Forums a MD1 PSU has been used without a step down (UK voltage is 230v, Japan sits around 100-110) and just wanted to be 100% befor...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Sons of Anarchy from beginning to end, and that ending :shock:

I'm stuck on Pup watch for a while so need to pick another series, thinking maybe Castlevania.

Walking through a shopping Centre in Middlesbrough on a visit with the Mrs I treated myself to a mini arcade machine after watching a review on some official ones, annoyingly it was missing some of the games from the Demo one (exitebike to name one...

Gameboys

A couple of weeks back I became redundant and have been taking a break for a while to fix my voice so I've been finding stuff to keep me occupied. On fettleing with some Retro Game tat things I got the urge to drag out my 2 Gameboys that I had saved from a prior cull as they were Childhood ones, nam...

Re: Top Gear reboot Mk. II

I've seen Beaulieu's updated TG experiance too, its alright but it's not quite where it was with Clarkson and co yet and the reasonably fast car segment didn't really feel as good as the reasonably priced car as it's far to predictable, I liked watching a cheap turd on 2 wheels come dangerously clos...

Re: TV Troubles

I'd replace it if you are not able to do the repair yourself, I hate throwing stuff out but that would be defined as beyond economical repair under insurance as potentially other components could be not far behind.
