I want to set a Sega Master System II up on my TV, but I can't seem to get it to work.


The manual says to unplug the Antenna cable from the TV and into the RF switch box. Done that.


Then it says plug the switch box Antenna cable into the TV. Done.


Connect the RF cable between the RF switch box and the RF jack on the back of the power base. Done that too.


Then set the RF switch to "computer" position. Done. Tried it on TV too.


Also tried another cable with an RF connection on one end and that has the same connection as the Antenna cable on the other end. That goes from the Antenna connection on the power base into the console. Don't have any cable from the RF connection on top in that setup.


Tried auto retuning my TV to find it. It loses all digital/freeview channels and just has one blank analogue/ATV channel. If I press any other number it just comes up saying 1 again. Tried manually retuning channel 1 on analogue/ATV, but it doesn't find anything.


Console is plugged in and power is on. Cables are all plugged in correctly.


Are there any settings I need to change or something else I need to do? Is there anything I've done wrong?


TV is a Blaupunkt if it makes any difference. Couldn't get it to work on an LG either, but only tried the second setup and not the RF to RF cable setup. I don't care which TV is goes on so if you any more in-depth advice for one and not the other that's alright.


Any help/tips would be great.

Hey... old Sega freak here. lol. So many years since I thought about this.


Plug the console directly into the RF port (on the TV), it is possible that slidey switch has deteriorated over the years.


I still have my original Sega System from 84, and still play it from time to time too. My little kids love it better than the PS3.


edit: yes I know it doesn't "go there", but it does.
