the TV. I've had success with a few Japanese systems like the Pyuuta
Jr., Cassette Vision, and Super Cassette Vision. All of those work
on channels 95 or 96. But my Famicom won't work on any channel for
some reason, and I ended up having to mod it to output composite.
Also, for reference: The Pyuuta Jr. appears to run fine off US
power. Japanese stuff tends to run a bit hot on our power, but I've
yet to have any problems with power supplies blowing out or
anything. And I've tried with quite a few Japanese systems, like the
X68000 and FM Towns and X1 and MSX and so on. I've been running my
MSX off US power for over a year now and it still works fine and

Does it only allow GRAPHIC, or does it have BASIC (I can't imagine

GRAPHIC. Speaking of which, do you know if graphic can be controlled
And speaking of joysticks, now that I think about it I'm pretty sure
the TI-99/4a joysticks aren't completely compatible with the Pyuuta,
because the TI-99 sticks only have one button rather than two.
Perhaps it does work but with just one button, but I'm going to do a
little more research on it before I plug the TI-99 sticks in. I
don't want to burn the port out or anything, so I'm going to at
least ensure that the ground pins are in the same place.
