So over the holiday, I scored two consoles: a slimline PS2 and my late grandfather's Atari 2600. I have a modern plasma display. I'm pretty sure I can get the PS2 hooked up via component video with one of these
,* but I'm kind of stumped on getting the Atari going.
I've got an ancient switch which will let me plug my cable input and the Atari into the TV's antenna port, but I don't really want to do that, as it'd mean manually switching between the two, and I'm pretty sure I'd take a pretty big hit on the quality of my TV signal. I'd rather get it into the available composite video ports.
I thought about an RF modulator
, but that seems go to the wrong way, i.e. you put in composite video and get out coaxial. I want to go the other way.
Can anybody help me get my retro gaming on? A solution using composite video would be ideal, but I'm open to other suggestions.
*Sub-question: do the PS2 and PS3 really have the same video output connector?
