Coax, then you have to switch it to channel 3 or 4 and that will be the game.

if you dont remember how to hook one up you might want to call your big brother (aka the person whose sega genesis it really is)

you dont have more then 1 coax input on the back of the tv? My 65" Mitsubishi has like 5, for Over the air Antenna for local channels HDTV broadcast and sat and i guess a vcr and ****. If you dont have that

Sadly DSEZ is the smartest person in this thread. AV Cables for Genesis are awesome and actually work without the bull**** adapters and ****ty Coax hookup.

ok, i have that AV cable already, but it wont fit into the back of my sega. only the coax will.

then you apparently don't have that cable now do you?
av cables for consoles are not universal for every device...

Heh :D i do this for a living, no for vidoe game systems but large television corporation s that go from analog to composite then upconvert to hd then monitor a preview feed and a archive feed that is different from the on-air feed ;) its basically the same ****

you can find coax to composite adapters at radioshack they are $12-15 a ouece fir gold plated.

If you tv could do DB15 how about MONITOR CABLE VGA HD-15 MALE TO 5 BNC, 6FT (http://www.topmicrousa.com/bnc-vga.html)
You would go get one of those and a female and female connector to put the cable to the composite and then you would be fine, the cables are straight passive and wouldnt be a problem. They use to make coax to composite back in they day before you could get a VCR for 10 dollars.

hahahahah noobtard.


Take pictures of the cables you have for your genesis.

Take pictures of the back of your tv.


This is like saying, "How do I plug a knife into my face?" without supplying specific information regarding the type of knife or the dimensions and skin colour of the face.

the coax is supposed to go inline with your cable.. if you don't have cable put it direct.. this isn't ****ing rocket science lol

****ING RCA not VGA ****er! :twak: :)

If it's RCA Rev it will have 3 plugs of the colors yellow, white, and red. You want to plug the YWR plugs into their respective connectors of the same color. BTW Yellow = Video, White= Left Speaker, Red = Right Speaker.
