I have an rfu adapter for my n64 and it powers on and hooks up OK. But I can't get it to show up on my TV. When I plug it into the antenna in. It's acting like and antenna and I get 3 channels on my TV rather than none when its not. If I put it on 3 or 4 its just static? I don't know what to check next.

  • The N64 might just be broken. It IS 19 years old.

  • No its not broken because I tested it on a different older TV with the antenna in and it worked perfectly. But it wasn't my TV so obviously I can't just use it lol I have to connect it to my flat screen. Nov 20 '15 at 0:35
  • Hmm,m then your TV's broken? There isn't really anything you can do with an RFU to "mess it up" other than, well, not connect it.

  • No TV is fine. Turns on and I play it with a gamceube Wii ps2 and nes lol it just has me stumped! Nov 20 '15 at 0:40
  • Do you use the RFU with the other consoles? The issue might be the specific connection. Is the RFU connected directly to the TV or another console's RFU?

Get an S Video or Composite lead for the N64 instead. The image quality will be a lot better and there's no messing around with tuning in the TV.
