Okay... with limited information I'll give it a shot...

Depending on the age of your tv, sometimes they have multiple input options. Since you are referring to hooking it up with cable, I'm guessing that you are using a coaxle for your super nintendo. The easiest way to get it hooked up it to upgrade to a 3-prong AV cable. You can find them on ebay for about $2.

If you don't have any open inputs on your tv you will need to either continuously change what is connected to the tv (unlikely) or buy an RF switch from any store that sells electronics. I think they are running $20 or less now adays. (They are worth the cost because they allow you to connect DVD player, VCR, game component, etc all using one input on TV.)

HOW DO I HOOK UP MY SUPER NINTENDO TO A TV THAT DOESN'T HAVE AUDIO/VIDEO HOOK UPS?


You need an RF modulator or a modulator and a A/V switch (to avoid Daisy-chaining the game system to the DVD/VCR). These are available at many electronics shops (Radio Shack, etc.)

Here is one RF modulator: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 . There are many more out there; however, these days some stores may only have them in their online inventory.

I hope this helps.

Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the TV.
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for a one player game.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!

I bought a ac adaptor to my super nintendo, because the adaptor that I'd is a fuckin' fail, so when I bought a new super nintendo adaptor, but I can't see anything on my tv. The conexion is ok. What's up!?


Note: pictured above is the redesigned Super NES. The original Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!

How do I install this to my TV


I do not think i fully understand your problem, do you have a game boy, the hand held system? or larger Gamecube? If it is the small game boy, You do not hook it to your system. there is an adapter that fits in the Super Nintendo System that will hold and Play game boy games. It is called Super BOY.
If it is game cube and has a/v audio/video plug ends, you need a converter from Radio shack that converts those 3 colored wires to the same cable the you use for your cable input to the tv.
