Unbelievable...
I just found a CD-i model 220 with the digital video cartridge... NTSC and everything. No remote.
But it was $7.99!

And it works great! hahaha mind you i will probably still try to convert the other one to NTSC. But i'm in less of a rush. Crazy lucky deal!

This is awesome! I haven't soldered anything in about 12+ years but I can't think of a better reason to re-learn. I have a pretty steady hand so that's good. Thanks so much for this step by step tutorial! I'm kind of an amateur really, so once you get those 2 switches and 2 resistors where will they...

Thanks a lot Alan!
I'll give that a try.
I just saw a gamester controller on ebay that I haven't seen anywhere before. It actually looks almost exactly like a genesis controller.

Yeah I'd never seen one of those euroconnectors before getting this cd-i. There's another tv in the next room but it's usually being used for crappy shows. But if I get a chance I'll try it out on tv number 3 haha. This final TV i have is a 54" plasma... it's the newest and best in the house. It's n...

Anyway I was happy that it seemed to work on the old tv!! But everything is...
