can't you get an adapter that has audio plugs and a video plug?

Yup I got mine off Ebay. The gen 1 system has just mono output because of the stereo jack, but the gen 2 systems come with video and stereo sound lines.

just upgraded my gen 1 to dual av with the 3.5 mm stereo to rca through the headphone jack wow!!! what a facelift!! ive only played a few games since ive done it but the graphics and sound on sonic 3+sonic and knuckles is a huge improvement and the music and sound in sunset riders is amazingly upgraded. highly recomended! i do have some pretty loud feedback sometimes is it possibly due to my stereo cables being shielded or not? help!

I've never used shielded stereo cables and I never noticed feedback. Might just be the speaker system you're using. Try a pair of standard headphones or a gaming headset and see what volume levels give the feedback.

I think I know what kind of feedback noise you're talking about. My MD2 has it too, an annoying buzzing sound that grows louder the brighter the screen is. At first I thought it was 'normal', just some interference in the cables or something. My MD1 on the other hand, sounds clean and pristine, so that taught me it is in fact not normal. Don't pin me down on this, but it might be caused by degraded capacitors in the sound circuits. You should ask TmEE for more details, he knows better than I do.

I have a model 1 that has that same buzzing problem, and unfortunately it's the only model 1 I have that doesn't have TMSS.
If you have buzzing that changes with screen brightness, you know its time to change and/or add capacitors, its caused by video chip and travels through power rails, but when capacitors are dried out they won't smoothen out the voltage spikes anymore and you get all sorts of funny things happen.

thats exactly whats happening can you help me on where to find new ones, what ill need to change/add, and how to do it?

Resoldering capacitors is a heck of a job, the things can be very tedious and hard to get to. I feel comfortable fixing them but definitely not for the faint of heart (or faint of soldering skills).
Just googled it, there are lots of places to find how to do it. Does sega-16 have a section for this yet?? I thought there was one..?
