Best seen in 480p, this is a test of the svideo mod on a sega genesis model 2 with the cx1145 video encoder.  The luma was amplified with a 2n3903 transistor and a 0-50ohm variable resistor (set at 27ohms for this video).  The chroma was connected using a 220uf capacitor and a 75ohm resistor.  The lines on the bottom of the screen are caused by the capture card used and are not seen when this is displayed on the tv.

Modifications to this particular machine are:

  • 7.67Mhz standard clock/overclock 10Mhz switch
  • S-Video/composite/stereo audio out ports on the back of the unit
  • PAL/NTSC select switch  Japanese/English region switch

If you would like more information on this great modification, please check out

His videos are top notch and to the point!

Thanks 🙂

Well for ease of use, I decided to start using this blog as apposed to the old “manual edit” website.  There is not much on the old site, so I will try to move most of it over here.  This should allow me to update more easily.

Older projects have been moved to the Projects section 😀
