Dreamcast Issue I notice two parallel horizontal lines on screen when i use an rf lead on my Dreamcast. I have Two working DCs and two rf leads and they do the job but i get these lines on the screen. Is it just my tv or that the rf unit commonly has this problem. I've used the same setup in the past and have not noticed these lines before , sometimes it's one Horizontal line mid screen other times it's one at the top and one at the bottom.

Audio but no picture

Try using another RF cable. If that doesn't work then open up the system, and clean it out. Make sure there's no dust or anything that shouldn't be in there.
