Hookup

Fairchild Video Entertainment System / Channel F

Channel F composite hookup point.jpg
Connect composite in wire to the resistor by the RF box where the black clamp is placed. Audio can be picked from speaker output using about 150kOhm in series.

Channel F II

Available 5V shown with red and blue wires in top right position and composite signal source taken with a red clamp on a resistor by the LED.
Audio hookup point is any of the marked connection points. Last circled jumper should be opened to remove annoying moving patterns over colored areas.
