HELP with SUP-R-MOD or DUP-R-MOD II

HELP with SUP-R-MOD or DUP-R-MOD II

Well, I'm insearch of any info about these products.

Since it's been a long time since I've been able to get either my ][plus or ][e on my color TV I'm asking for help from anyone here who might have any info to HELP with building a SUP-R-MOD or DUP-R-MOD II or finding an alternative replacement that would get my Apples on a TV.
Non of my searches have even dug up anything that would help me build one DIY or what could be used as a substitue.

TIA

In this day and age... doesn't your TV or VCR have a video-in RCA jack you could plug into?

HELP with SUP-R-MOD or DUP-R-MOD II

David,

Thanks, I had two intentions here.
1) to get my Apples working which it didn't dawn on me that it should work straight into a Video IN connection.

It's been awhile since I originaly used an Apple ][plus back in Newton, MA when my dad purchased it for me. Say 1978 I believe and this was prior to Apple going public at IIRC $8 a share.

2) I wanted to add this option to complete my systems ][plus and ][e, but now it's not so important... - Ah I'm getting old now and my brain sure ain't as sharp as it use to be Wink

Sure, but my question was kind of a silly one anyway. We all like the old stuff, and we like to use the old stuff in authentic ways. There's no good reason to ask a question like, "but you can use all this newfangled technology to bypass all the old archaic stuff..." When the point _is_ the archaic stuff.

I have a Sup-R-Mod or two myself - lots of analog circuitry. But I don't have a TV that can accept its inputs any more. Wink

David,

I've come to realize that whatever the post or reply is that I should not jump to conclusions. Especially since I've realized that my Grey Cells are starting to act flakie in recent years.

It's nice to use a real Apple ][ or Commordore or even an Atari instead of an emulator (IMO)

I wanted to collect an Apple ][plus just the way my dad purchased it for me back in 1978 with 48k, a SUP-R-MOD which I used with an old SONY TV then and now I'm trying still to track down a set of Apple Paddles.

Personally I've been holding on to my older equipment whatever it is because I've realized the old stuff were really well made like the SONY TV I currently use which was made in 1986. Thanks to your reply I'm happily using my Apple ][plus and ][e with it and hope to score a set of Apple Paddles one of these days if anyone out there has an extra set to let go of Wink

Now I'm off to bed to dream about playing Little Brick Out.

Sup R Mod with Apple II

Hi,

I was wondering if you solved your Apple II video out concern? I've tried to connect my Apple II to my TV via my Sup R Mod and have not had any success.

I want to test everything out before I list it for sale. It would be much more attractive if I can load Startrek from cassette tape.

But the first issue is to get a video display.

Any advice for me?

Connection particulars?

Len -

How are you connecting the Sup-R-Mod to the TV? I think you need to connect the RCA jack on the Sup-R-Mod to a (what did they call them again?) RF Modulator to hook up to the antenna leads. The modulator adapts the RCA jack to 300 ohm wire leads - then you tune to channel 3 or 4. Remember those things? The thing is, you need to adapt the RCA jack to your TV's antenna input, whatever form it comes in these days.

Sup R Mod connection

Thanks David,

I had tried the things you recommended. Tried Ch 3,4 and 33. I know that I'm getting some sort of video transmission to the TV because I see changes in the static.

Maybe I'll clean all of the connectors and give it another try.

Thanks again,
Len

I think you may have to hook

I think you may have to hook up to the TV's antenna input. Maybe just the UHF part. Channel 33. You may have to fine tune it in from there if you have an old set. You might see something on 32-34. On the new sets there is no fine tuning.

Take Care
