SNES query.

Was rooting around in the loft and came across my old SNES.

It has a power cable, but whatever I used to connect it to the TV has disappeared.

Don't know if I'll ever use it again, to be honest, but it would be nice if I had some way of connecting it to a TV or AV receiver in future.

What do I need to get and where from please? Would it actually work with an OLED or would I need some sort of HDMI adapter?

Thanks!

p.s. Also had some games:

Super Mario Kart
Zelda: A Link To The Past
Addams Family Values (I seem to remember this was quite good)
Star Trek: The Next Generation (can't remember anything about this whatsoever)

I also have a cartridge-only copy of an RPG called Terranigma - currently selling for over £200 on Ebay! And a Super Game Boy add-on that allows you to play Game Boy games on your TV.

No just first thing that showed up via Google 🤷🏻‍♂️
You could always go old school but that all depends on what inputs you have on your TV.
Okay, after doing more research, found this:


The price is terrifying, but the reviews are great.

It's also plug & play, doesn't cause flicker, have any latency issues, doesn't wash out the image and can be used across multiple unmodded consoles (which I have), like the SNES, N64 and Gamecube.

Thanks for your help with this, Gonzo!

Bear in mind that (I’m assuming) it’s a PAL SNES, the games will run horribly (running at 50hz speed & with big black borders).

You could probably get a 2nd hand SNES mini for not too much extra money. Can also very easily add additional roms if you wanted more than the stock 21 games.

Jeez that’s even more expensive 🫣
I sometimes play Snes games via an emulator on my WiiU, though that’s annoying due to 5GHz interference on the Gamepad from the Wi-Fi 😢
I’ve also got a SNES emulator disc for my Dreamcast but can’t connect that to my new TV until I get a similar adapter.
