    PBC is just a pass-through. I don't believe the Genesis supports the video mode of the SG-1000, thus it will not work.

    yeah. keep in mind you won't be able to play keyboard sg-1000 games. if there are any.

    while it's likely possible to build an adapter for the master system rear expansion port, comparing their pinout, there isn't yet a known attempt of that idea.

    There's some educational titles that make use of the SK-1100 but nothing anyone would actually want to play, hence why nobody's interested in making an adapter for it. It might have some potential for future homebrews though.

    I guess. It'd be similar to using a Famicom keyboard on NES. Down to how both use the keyboard to connect their data recorder.

    The post's latter idea is just amateur soldering to find out whether it'll work in practice. Wire a female Mark III slot (EDAC 346-044-520-202) to female SMS slot. (EDAC 341-050-520-202) Then any compatible Mark III games should boot straight from the SMS rear port.
