Use the RF lead (plugs into the mini din at the back of the megadrive)
if you don't have the lead you might want to look at ebay for a replacement
of if you don't want the hastle of tuning your megadrive into your tv you could buy a scart lead from www.retro-cache.com

Ok i have many sega systems and to connect a sega it sometimes depends on what version of the sega mega drive you have i will tell you how to connect your sega after you've already plugged in your power adapter. If there is a plug on the back of your sega that says RF out then you should have a TV out/ antenna in adapter. One end goes into your sega and the other TV out should go into your TV then if there is already an antenna in your TV unplug it and and plug it into your TV/ antenna adapter where it should say something like antenna in. Don't worry if you have cable or directv it will still work it just might be slightly fuzzy because of the old technology. If you dont have the RF out then you should have a plug in the back that says AV out and all you do is do the same thing only the TV/ antenna adapter you should have should be able to plug into the AV out plug. Any other concerns about your sega, like how to connect your sega CD to your sega console, or most of its other products just let me know and if this doesnt work let me know, thank you.

SOURCE: i have a sega mega

Hi. is the lead from mega drive a rf socket that goes into the arial socket on the telly and does the lead have a switch on it?

Plug the rf lead from md into areial socket on telly
then put telly on channel you dont use i used 0 or 9 but use any.
then turn mega drive on
then press setup on tv
enter channel settup then you need to go through the procedure of tuning channel in its best doing it manualy its like when you tune a channel in make sure md is on then keep changing the frequency one way or the other could take few minutes then when you get it on the telly save this setting on the channel you want to use ok.

If it dont work then the chances are the lead is damaged this is often the case with these consoles as the are not made that well so if no good then replace if necesarry.

If your unsure on tuning your telly then give me make and model then i can talk you through the process ok

SOURCE: Just got a Sega Mega drive, connected to my plasma

Most old systems such as Mega Drive will come with an RF adaptor, which plugs into the back of the console and has a coaxial tip on the other end, to connect to the tv.

When you connect the coaxial end to the tv, you connect it to the round coax plug which is where you used to plug in your old cable tv hookup. It also might say Ant. or Antenna.

Turn on your megadrive and use your TVs input selector to change to either "antenna" or "tv" or "cable" input, or until you hit the input which displays your megadrive's signal.

Tip: use your TV's view options to change the input to a 4:3 or "not stretched" aspect ratio so that your old Fullscreen video games will not be stretched out wide on your new widescreen HDTV.

Good Luck!

Make sure that you are selecting the right input option, and that your Sega Megadrive is a PAL version.

Can't find the frequency for the genisis 1 sega megadrive, I have the RF converter but I've tried doing auto search and manual, just cant find it...


Hi some new TV'S may not have the frequency of these old consoles i recommend purchasing a AV cable which is can be found at http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/sega-mega-drive/mega-drive-accessories/sega-mega-drive-1-av-cable.html

I just aquired a sega megadrive 2 with all leads but no instructions. can you tell me how to set it up please? Michael


First plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red light showing that the megadrive is on)

Plug RF lead into the back of the mega drive and TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch.

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on.

Select a channel on your TV and tune it into the mega drive.

This should work.

How do I set up a sega genesis?


here we go
This is a step by step with testing set up for the sega mega drive

first plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red LED light)

plug RF lead into the back of the TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch. (or you can buy scarts from www.retro-cache.com)

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on

Select a channel on your TV and re-tune it into the mega drive. (on some TV's the tuneing is around the C36 area if that is any help)

If you tune into a blank screen than turn the mega drive off, remove the game, clean it and replace the game and try again.
