    Florida SuperCon 2019

    I spent all of this weekend attending Florida Supercon. It's always a fun event to attend, with plenty of actors to meet and talk with and cosplayers galore. Here is a link to my online album: Florida SuperCon 2019. Below are some sample pics. By the way, this convention is among the final set of conventions that Nichelle Nichols is doing.

    Hi Guys - thanks so much for the support and kind words. I finally got around to joining the forums - just wanted to provide you a brief update on this project - I have a few of the Robotron controllers available here: retrogameboyz.com - it's just my eBay listings. I have lots of parts and try to assemble a few each day. https://www.ebay.com/sch/retrogameboyz/m.html Check my feedback and let me know what you think. I offer 30 day free returns if you are unsatisfied for any reason, so you can't lose. Even if you want to try it out and decide that it's not exactly what you wanted etc. I have sold about 700 controllers since March 2018. I constantly improving things and making different configurations. I recently started 3D Printing others some as those I have sold to wanted more customization. I do take requests as well. I am on v3 of the case and v1.2 of the boards - so far the units I have tested seem promising. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks again! Here is the Robotron controller Demonstration:

    The picture of you and Nichelle Nichols is a treasure. You are so fortunate to have met her! Thank you for sharing, these are great.

    Whelp I just finally got myself an Atari Lynx! Not the best physical condition but it works. Gonna try to repaint the case, I think. It's the first model type. Not the more compact model 2.

    I got mine as well. Love this controller. Well done and works very well. I like having the ability to remove the controller component from the black holder also.

    @RetroGameBoyz - I received my controller yesterday and was able to put some time on it today. I'm really impressed. This is a terrific controller. To other users - if you're interested and are sitting on the fence, go for it. I also shared my impressions in a blog post here. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

    2600 jr video quality issue

    Great! I'm going to guess that a shielded RF cable will fix this issue. Your standard audio cables have no shielding at all.

    Posting a score for my older son. Let's call him RickR Jr too. Neither one of us could get past that first boss. 25,800.

    I switched the video channel selector from 2 to 3 and it improved slightly so I think I might have a dirty switch. I also ordered a RF specific video cable so Iā€™m hoping that clears things up. There are other devices around it so it may be picking up interference from those. Thanks for your help.

    I second what kamakazi20012 has said. One addition. Try a different power adapter. You can use the one your sixer uses. With a fuzzy RF signal, I've found many times it's an old or bad RF adapter that was giving off the interference. Good luck, and let us know what you find!

    Junior models don't have anything different than the sixer you mention other than the difference in switches and a smaller overall size. You might try a few things to make sure it is in fact your Junior model. Try an actual 2600 RF cable. These have a thick shielding that RCA audio cables don't have. If you have a LOT of electronics, especially a desktop or laptop computer, on the same circuit that the Junior model is sharing a power outlet with move the Junior to it's own power outlet with little to no electronics on that circuit. Seriously, use a different power outlet other than one used by a computer. PCs and laptops cause most major interference with Atari consoles. Keep the 2600/Junior models away from any kind of computer equipment. These WILL cause undesired interference. Try Junior on a different RF channel (2 or 3). Older game and computer consoles using RF modulation are getting more and more where interference is common. The cause of most of it is due to the modern technology we have now that was not present when the 2600 was designed. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, modern console wireless controllers, modern consoles in general (360 and above) all play a part in those interference problems. As stated by Atari once in the past the device (meaning the 2600 in this case) transmits RF signals and must be able to transmit and receive signals that can cause undesired operation in either a nearby device or the 2600 itself as set by FCC rules and regulations. Even those rules state to try to relocate either the cause of the signal or the 2600 itself. It makes sense that the Junior model is detecting interference that your sixer is not. Junior models lack the extra layer of shielding that your sixer does so I would bet that it is something in your house close by causing the problem. Try it in a different room where there are no other electronics running besides the Junior model and TV of some sort if you can. Worst case scenario may be your Junior model has a faulty capacitor designed to absorb most of that interference. But I would save that as a last ditch effort if nothing else solves the problem. Hope this helps. Post pics of the screen if you can if nothing I've mentioned here works.
