    If an S-video mod is an option, that will look quite good as well, saturation will be different, so you'd need to adjust the TV's settings, but if you've already been using composite or RF, the settings should be the same. (that oversaturation is common to other consoles like SNES in composite/s-video as well)

    If you can mod it yourself (or have a freind that could), great, if not, it still may be cheaper to pay someone else than buying an SCART RGB cable and transcoder. It really is relatively simple, but if the console has the CXA1145 encoder, make sure a stronger resistor than usually suggested is used on the chroma line (should be be ~480 ohms I think -opposed to the normal 75 ohms), this is to elliminate the vertical lines in the color signal.

    But Matteus lives in the UK so an S-Video wouldn't be a good alternative.
    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    Genesis

    First, I apologize for bumping such an old thread.

    Secondly, I recently bought one of these off eBay as well.

    But the main reason for my posting is this... What exactly constitutes a good model 1?.. It seems the holy grail of genesis is a non TMSS model 1. But Is there any benefit of a non TMSS model 1 other than the fact that it doesn't have the TMSS?

    I personally haven't heard a difference between HDG Geneses with TMSS and ones without TMSS.
