Chances are your TV doesn’t like the refresh rate output by the 2600 or the TI. Some TVs are going to be very finicky and may require an exact 59.94 or 60Hz for 480p, and the RT2X doesn’t have the capability to perform framerate conversion in order to provide that level of compatibility. It’s also possible that the sync signal is funky, like it is with the NES/SNES, but that would be pure speculation on my part.

If you’ve tried a different console, or even a DVD player, to eliminate the RT2X as the source of your problem, then you may need to add a proper scaler between the RT2X and your TV (Perhaps an Extron DSC 301 HD), or something like a Framemeister to use in lieu of the RT2X.
