Poor NTSC 2600 in a pal world !

I am looking for a small NTSC TV to plug my Atari 2600 rf output.

I don't want to sadden you, but your idea will most likely not work...
Let me explain: you want to connect your 2600 to the aerial of an NTSC vcr.
The vcr would still be NTSC, thus its' RF and Composite signals would still be NTSC. If your 1084 is an NTSC model, then all is ok.
But i suspect it's a European model, and thus you should forget it.
The C= Amiga monitors can actually display an Amiga NTSC's signal, but not the composite one, the RGB one!
What you need is a television that covers multisystem requirements and accepts NTSC RF.

Huum... So, 1084 monitor can't display NTSC composite signal :(
Thanks to warn me :thumbsup:

I will edit my post only for a NTSC TV
