NEC PC Engine/Turbografx |OT| – No friends to bring controllers? No problem!


I plan on using him when my DCHDMI comes in. I think that one might be a bit too advanced for me to do myself.


I just ordered the FU-RGB board from Mobius Strip as well, going to install it myself though. The price was certainly right (Though shipping to Canada was more than the board itself!).


Just came back from Japan and got myself an AV Booster. Anyone know how to open this thing up? I want to see if I can RGB mod this. It seems to just be held together with plastic tabs and has no screws whatsoever. There doesn’t seem to be any documentation about this anywhere online which is slightly frustrating.


Googling it a bit I see this person with a video using one of the RGB mod kits available out there to do so. It looks like he’s just grabbing the RGB signal off the pins coming in from the EXT port. I don’t see why you couldn’t do similar to the Japanese AV Booster. Maybe shoot a tweet to Voultar, or ask on the shmups forums.


Hey ShinJohnpv, thanks for the response! Unfortunately the problem I have is actually physically opening the AV Booster up, as there are no visible screws anyway on the body and no rubber feet or covers that look like they are covering any screws. The TG16 version of the AV Booster looks much easier to open up as I think I can see some screw holes that provide access. None of those exist on a PCE AV Booster.

Actually modding the thing shouldn’t be a problem for me I think, as I’m quite proficient with a soldering gun and I sort of know my way around a circuit diagram.

I’ll try asking at the shmups forums though I’ve always found that crowd a little intimidating, just like I do our Lord Voultar :sweat_smile:
