I just picked up a big box of Dreamcast stuff from a local car boot sale. It had almost everything - 2x controllers, 1xvmu, 8 games, keyboard, power, fishing rod... but nothing to plumb it into my telly.

Has anyone got an RGB scart cable I can buy?

Also, if the DC is in good working order, I will also be on the lookout for a few games if anyone has a few they want to sell?

Amazing system :) The scart makes a huge difference aswell, I never run mine off anything other than the scart. The VGA adaptor is great too :thumbsup:

Yep, I got one many years ago (the day of its release if I remember correctly!). I never got a keyboard for it, but I get the feeling that this one accessory will make emulation of 8bit systems much better.

Just looking forward to cleaning it up properly - its a bit yellowed, so time to mix up another batch of the ole retrobrite. It might work quicker now we have sun up north!

If I had a spare scart you would be welcome to it but I do have a load of keyboards for the DC. They are boxed originals, in very good condition if I remember rightly (theyre packed up in a box somwhere, I moved house recently).

You could have it for say 10 all inc? PM me if you are interested :)

I used to have all the official UK relaleased Sega accessories, including, the original Sega-produced fishing rod and the non UK released broadband adaptor. I love the DC but had to sell all the good extras I had for it due to a cash shortage :(

VGA is just EPIC, no other word. Playing Ecco on that makes you wonder why DC never went to the stars. :(

One contributing factor will have been the almighty screw-up with the protection system - allowing it to boot from CDRs was very bad. Brilliant back then, but with hindsight, not so good.

I have the KB and other bits - its just I don't know if any of it works. I'll keep this in mind depending on what happens.

Although, how do you test a keyboard on the DC? :blink:
