Looked my old SNES out & having issues connecting it to any of my newer TV’s.
It’s powering on OK but just getting static when using the original RF cable method.

Can anyone recommend another connection method?
Multi to SCART possibly but can someone recommend an actual product?
Seeing mixed reviews if wires/connectors on Amazon.
I’m only looking to get it connected to a my 4 year olds 19” tv so don’t need the full expensive solutions to get it to go all singing & dancing on a big UHD tv etc

Any advice is much appreciated, cheers

SCART is the best option if your TV has it (many newer ones don't any more) if you have have SCART get one of these:


If your TV doesn't have SCART, you should be able to use one of these, but the quality won't be as good:

What Edd said. Failing that you’re looking at 40-50 for a decent HDMI connection, although you can get cheap ones for around a fiver. They’re not great though

You could pick up a snes mini for less than £50 I should think. There’s no cartridges to blow into so it’s not the same but it would give you the option to play nearly all the games they produced and loads of homebrews.

You can buy expensive cables which have better shielding but to the average person they're not worth the extra money, I just use cheap ones.
