      I didn't realize you could do that; I had to use my Pyuuta Mk II (which is
      also RF only) with my Mac's TV tuner card set to Japanese frequencies. I'll
      try your method and see how well it works. It might also work for my
      Commodore Ultimax, but I don't remember if it tunes to channel 2.

      Fortunate that the Pyuuta has composite output. By the way, any chance of
      seeing the internals of the Pyuuta Jr? I'd like to see how the ROMs are
      laid out. Does it only allow GRAPHIC, or does it have BASIC (I can't imagine
      how, but ...) Is there any GBASIC support?
