Hey, so I just picked up a Mega Drive model 1 today, with the High Definition label on and everything (I'm at uni without a TV but I've been listening to ESWAT through the earphones, the sound quality is excellent!). I'm hoping to send it off to www.consolepassion.co.uk soon to get it modded for 60Hz and imports. I have some questions though;
1) I understand that the only way to get stereo sound on this model is through the headphone jack right? If so, is there a way to get that sound through to my TV?
2) I eventually plan to pick up a 32X and Mega/Sega CD. However it gets pretty expensive if I want to get those add-ons modded as well (modding them myself is probably out of the question), and the add-ons seem to be pretty pricey here in the UK anyway. If I got American Sega CDs and 32xes would those work fine with it? Though granted I'll probably want to get some Japanese CD games as well; is it difficult to get round the Sega CD lockout?
3) Following on from 2, do I go Mega CD 1 or 2? I understand the 2 will still work on the MD1.
4) I read something about making it a priority to replace the capacitors on the earlier models. Is this easy to do, or should I get someone more technically minded to do it for me?
