    Hi guys have any of you ever seen one of these things before?

    Can't really find any information out there about them but it's a small simple mod that lets you play GBA games on your TV. It's obviously made in china but there's no company name or any information on the box about it.

    Works really well from the video though and would love to know more or if there are other models out there.

    Are these things rare? (in the obscure context)

    Heard of these and they're not bad but you can clearly see on the screen that there is some issues with the output.

    Bet you can find plenty of these on Aliexpress.

    The quality looks pretty good overall though, i mean we all know composite on hd tv looks awful though but the crt looks more than good.

    Interested in seeing if there are some other models of this out there, it's certainly obscure!

    Those GBA A/V mod kits were fairly common in the early 2000s. The one I used to own went by the title "GBA de TV."

    There are a few similar models on e-bay currently. Just search for GBA TV or similar.

    I managed to find one on ebay but it looks like a different model entirely. It's quite an interesting mod to be fair though if people own a gamecube it's kinda pointless if you wanna use a GBA player. handy if you don't wanna have a bunch of systems hooked up though and just use a the gameboy itself with a tv.

    this is a cool thing. Wish I had one of those before the SP came out.
