I just got a model 1 hdg Genesis from ebay and the RF displays rolling black bars and a horrible buzzing sound. The games don't usually start up, and sometimes there are graphical errors that seems to be from something other than RF. I used three siferent RF switches and they all did the same thing.
on the plus side, I don't have to sit through the TMSS message. Should I get some av cables for this, or should I get a new model 1?
