DIRECT-TO-TV SUPPORT & FAQ
Unfortunately, a defective system will occasionally reach the store shelf. After double-checking that you have the batteries installed correctly and that your TV is set to the proper channel, contact the manufacturer, Techno Source Ltd., at customercare@technosourceUSA.com and explain the situation.
HOW DO I INSTALL BATTERIES?
A small screwdriver, like those included in eyeglass repair kits, is required to open and close the battery compartment. Unscrew and open the compartment, install 4 AA alkaline batteries (4 LR6 batteries) following the placement diagrams inside, then replace the cover and tighten the screw.
WHAT CHANNEL DO I USE ON THE TV?
The games will not show up on any of the normal channels - you need to use the direct line input, sometimes marked LINE, AUX or GAME on your TV's remote control. Refer to your TV's owners manual for more information.
WHAT GAMES ARE INCLUDED? HOW MUCH ARE THE UNITS? WHERE CAN I GET THEM?
All of this and other information is here.
CAN I HOOK UP TWO CONTROLLERS TO PLAY HEAD-TO-HEAD?
No. All of the games are one-player only, or two players taking turns.
ARE THE GAMES FULLY EMULATED?
No. The hardware in the controllers is based on the classic Nintendo game system. The games have been reprogrammed for the hardware.
WHAT CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE?
We've worked to keep the games as close to the originals as possible, but some compromises had to be made. Some sounds, graphics, and options have been modified or cut. Is it right for you? As Jayson Hill says in his review on GameShark.com: "These things may really bug someone who devoted many long hours to mastering the games of the Intellivision back when it was a new system. For everyone else, they are just going to have fun."
WILL A CONTROLLER BOUGHT IN ONE COUNTRY WORK IN ANOTHER?
Depends. The controllers are either NTSC or PAL. A controller for one system will not work on the other. SECAM will be available in 2004.
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE INTELLIVISION GAMES ARE MISSING.
Two-player only and voice games were left off of the controllers. Also, legal restrictions kept us from including some of the classic games that were based on movies or arcade machines.
