Finding a good working old (Game)Computer.

Last week a search at the attick to find some nice and working old style computers. I know I have some stuff like the NewBrain, Commandore-64, ZX-Timex, Oric-1, and some TV-Tennis Game console’s like the Tokyo, Radotin, Conic and the Videopac-G7000.


But the question is, are they working ?? So I connect them to my Tuner-device and start to scan. And I scan and I scan. But I see nothing. So I am a little disappoint about this result. Dit I read the datasheet wrong ? Or is my hardware not working.  Or are my game console’s and computers not working. So I travel to the local secondhand/charity shop to buy an oldschool Television.

To my surprise I get from some system’s an very clear signal on the television. So my first conclusion is that a couple of my gamecomputers and computers are working fine. The bad news is that my build TV-Tuner works NOT good.

So my next queation is: “What am I doing wrong ??”
