Here we are in 2004 still tinkering around with our 2600s. In many cases we're still using the same 2600 we've had since we were kids over 20 years ago with no money put into them except a replaced power supply and maybe one or two worn out console switches. Barring stretches of time in the closet or attic, I'd say that would be a pretty damn important piece of consumer electronics in our lives that has given us back more than enough enjoyment throughout the years to justify the one-time cost of the A/V board. And we're at an era where just about all TVs sold regardless of size have composite inputs and larger ones almost all have S-Video. I'd like to think we deserve better than to keep looking at RF output from our 2600s, filtered or not filtered.

Now that there finally is a commercially available A/V board that is simple to get installed, I strongly urge everyone to make whatever rationalizations you can to yourselves (or your wives) to buy one.

Very nice mod. It's nice to see a hardware project. And it looks like you really need the Cybertech A/V mod that Glen suggested, after watching your movie. ;-) (On a cheaper note, a while back I suggested ferrite cores to improve RF video output - check archives - works quite well)
