Sega Genesis to newer TV hookup - posted in Sega: Question on hooking a Sega genesis to a newer tv, can this be done? If so I have a vizio tv and would like to hook up a Sega genesis to it, can anyone tell me where I might be able to buy the cable to make this connection from the Sega to the tv? What is the name of the cable?. Want to play your old Mega Drive/Genesis, SNES, Dreamcast or even ZX Spectrum on your HDTV in top quality?
