This message is a reply to SNES 2 S-video/RGB - PAL version has RGB output. Can someone scan their US SNES 2 board for me? posted from Mark posted at August 17, 2001 at 10:13:56
> Hi,

> As you might know, the redesigned "SNES 2" which was sold in the USA doesn't have S-video or RGB outputs, which really sucks.

> The other day I bought a PAL SNES which uses (almost) the same circuit board as the SNES 2; SNSP-CPU-1CHIP-01 from memory. That console does have RGB output. (It probably does S-video too, but I don't have an S-video cable to test.)

> It may be that late-model original design US SNESes (made in 1995 or later) actually use the same circuit board as the SNES 2, but have RGB & S-video output. Can someone with a recent old-style US SNES check that?

> I suspect the SNES 2 not having S-video or RGB outputs is simply because Nintendo missed out some components. In which case installing the missing components would enable S-video & RGB, without an ugly-looking hack.

> To find out, if you have a US SNES 2, can you open it up and take decent resolution photos or scans of its circuit board, especially the lower side? I want to see if any components are missing compared to the PAL SNES 1CHIP board.
