Original-Style Super NES RF to VCR Hookup

Installation Steps:

  1. Locate the VCR's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, 75S(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
  2. Disconnect the existing cable wire from the VCR's VHF IN.
  3. Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your VCR's VHF IN.
  4. Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
  5. Connect the thin wire from the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
  6. On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the VCR. Note on Sharp TV/VCR Combo

After the system is connected to the VCR:

  1. Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
  2. Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
  3. Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
  4. Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
  5. Turn your TV and VCR on. Set up your TV and VCR the same way you would to watch a movie on the VCR.
  6. The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!

Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.
