I don’t know if it has to do with my USB at all but I’ve tried two different USBs on my computer and TV. Some of them feel wiggly in the connector at the Retrotink end but I have at least one that is staying firm.

As to the SFC, whether I plug in composite or s-video, nothing registers. The rainbow bars show but that’s it, like it is not picking up a signal or something from the SFC.

…Ok, while testing different games I got it to read a game. Composite is working. It has the exact same problem as the N64 on composite. Ditto s-video – black and white and the same image issues.

Could the problem be the cables? But it seems display-related since both of the consoles have the problem, and it occurs across both kinds of cords.

So to recap, I’m trying to figure out:

A) How to get the s-video cable to show color.
B) How to get rid of the Mode 1 bottom of the screen and Mode 2-3 top of the screen image issue.
C) Why some SFC carts aren’t reading at all.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
