I’ve finally tried out the trash TV yesterday with my PS2. It works quite well. But there’s bad news as well:

The snes mini has no way of outputting a suitable signal. My PS2 is even more broken than I remembered; there’s no way I’m gonna use that. And the TV is set to a ridiculously high brightness, I’ll need a remote to tune that down.

I guess I’ll clean it and put it in storage for now, and when I feel like retro gaming I have a suitable TV ready.


I hoped to use the snes mini with an adapter, but it doesn’t make any sense. So if I really want to play Final Fantasy VI/III on this, I’ll have to buy a used SNES.

to be honest it’s much more likely I’ll play it on a modern system with or without a bad CRT filter *sigh*
