Model 1 AV Port Adapter - HD Retrovision

HD Retrovision Sega Genesis Model 1 Adapter - Use with Genesis 2 Cable

Converts a male Model 2 Genesis 9-pin mini-DIN connector to a male Model 1 Genesis 262° 8-pin DIN connector. Use it in conjunction with the HD Retrovision Genesis YPbPr component cable to allow it to be used with a Model 1 Genesis or Master System. This adapter was also designed so that it may be used as a replacement for the "conversion cable" included with 32X consoles ("link cable" still required for full connection to 32X). However, do not use the official 32X conversion cable as a replacement for the adapter listed here (otherwise, the audio won't work).

The specific list of known supported consoles can be found here. Though it may work with others that haven't been tested, it cannot be guaranteed.

Warning: Do not use this adapter with the Neo Geo AES, Neo Geo CD, or any other console with a 270° style 8-pin DIN connector. 

Your television or display must be able to support "240p" video over YPbPr to use this product. Please test your specific equipment using this simple test procedure. This test should be run for each console with which you wish to use with the cables.

    My Genesis looks amazing!

    Sharp picture, vivid colors, great performance. The only thing that would make it better would be if it came with the aux cable for the stereo sound from the model one. I am a big fan.

    Perfect companion to your HD Retrovision Cables

    This is what you need to run the HD Retrovision Cables with the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive model 1 consoles! Fits perfectly with your game system.

    Great, even with composite cables!

    This will work great for your model 1, even with composite cables! However, when plugging in your desired 9-pin DIN cable into the adapter, it sticks out a bit and it doesn`t snap in, leaving a loose connection with only friction that is holding it together. The adapter fits snug into the model 1 genesis, though. Another thing is that since it is designed to convert model 1 into 9-pin DIN, it only outputs dual mono. There`s no extra cable to reach the front stereo audio jack.

    Does what it is supposed to do!

    Posted by Jaxon on Sep 13th 2023

    Works great! I ended up needing this after I decided to use my cables with a Model 1 Genesis instead of my Nomad. No loss in quality. SAG shipped them quickly and they arrived quickly. Thank you!
