For TVs and devices with separate composite video and component video jacks
IMPORTANT NOTE: If your TV/device has 3.5mm (headphone-style) video ports, now is the time to plug in the respective RCA breakout adapters for all of these ports.
- Connect the composite video (yellow) cord from your retro console into the Y (green) jack of the component video set on your TV or device.
- Connect two extra RCAs cables (color doesn't matter) into the Pb (blue) and Pr (red) jacks next to the Y (green) jack. Make sure the other end of these two cables remain disconnected. We advise against using the RCA audio cables (red & white) attached to the yellow composite cable you just plugged in. Please use a completely separate set of cables for this step.
- Select the corresponding input on your TV/device. For example, if you plugged the cable into the jack labeled Component 2, then select Component 2 on your device's input menu.
- Insert a game and turn on your retro console. Do not use Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Genesis or Radical Psycho Machine Racing (RPM Racing) for SNES, as you might get invalid test results when using those games.
- Verify that a picture is displayed indicating that your game is running. The picture should be stable (not jumping around or flashing on/off) and in black&white with some distortions where color should be. A stable black&white image, with fluid game motion, indicates that your TV/device is compatible. If proper 240p processing is important to you, now is the time to check if rapid motion and/or flashing game objects are being displayed properly as described above. Instead, if you see a message that says "No Signal", "Unsupported Signal Format", or "Mode Not Supported" then your TV/device doesn't accept 240p on its component video inputs. You'll need a separate processing box or a different TV/device.
