Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I have a Retro Duo NES/SNES system with the red/yellow/white and single line adapter. My tv is an older model that only has a single coaxial cable connector. However, the Direct TV cable box has the same plug ins as the Retro Duo set. I plugged the cables in the back of the Direct tv box and the game system but when I turn on the player I get nothing on the tv. The player will not cut out the tv and go to game play. What option do I have?

YOU CAN NOT PUT NINTENDO 64 GAMES INTO SNES or NES SLOTS. The retro duo is snes (super nintendo entertainment system) and nes (nintendo entertainment system) only there is not spot for the nintendo 64.

How do I hook up the Retro Duo nes/snes system to an older tv that has no a/v connections. I do have a Direct tv cable box but when I hooked the a/v cables to it absolutely nothing happened


Do you have a VCR that can hook to the TV that has the proper hook ups for your game system? Be sure your TV is on proper channel for your VCR to work (test it with a VCR tape and see if it plays) then change your channel on your vcr until it shows your game you have in your system hope that helps good luck

Hi, how would i hook up my snes to direct tv box help.


I don't think you would need to hook the SNES to your cable box but only to the TV using the Red, Yellow, White cables that plug into the gaming system. If you do not have those cables you can most likely find them for cheap on www.ebay.com

How do I connect an old supernintendo console to a new flat screen t.v.


Its really not that hard. Plug the square end of the av cable into the snes, get the red, white and yellow tips and find these red, white and yellow holes in the tv and plug it in there. The holes in the tv might be in the back. Get the ac cable and plug the skinny tip into the snes and plug the other end to a power outlet and your good to go.

Both my FC Twin and Retro Duo (brand new) have issues with nes...


If it's a flat screen especially, there will be major resolution problems. I know the laser gun doesn't work at all on flat screens and some newer TVs. You gotta play NES on an old school TV any way. It makes the experience much more authentic.

SNES works but no color.


Sounds like your AV Multi-out port circuitry is shot. Yest it with an RF adapter, and if it works perfect with an RF adapter, that is the source of your troubles. I'm afraid that the cheapest solution is to buy a SNES motherboard (about $20.00), which is a lot cheaper than a repair shop soldering in new components to fix it. It's not something you can do on your own.. Google SNES Motherboards type 1 or 2
