    Default Where can I get a video cable for an Atari 7800?

    I got the main system from a friend who found it in his cellar. Bought the joysticks and power supply on ebay and I am waiting for them to be shipped. Can't seem to find the video cable though.

    Default Atari 7800

    If I recall on my system, I used a regular phono cable (AV cables will work) and bought a Phono to Coaxial plug from Radio Shack. That should work.

    It uses an RCA cable, but you'd need to use either a manual switchbox or a connector that'll let you plug it directly into a tv's cable input.

    Alternatively, you can get an male RCA to male Coax cable.
