Ordered a gamebit, should get it this week, hopefully tomorrow =) Tried doing that homemade melt-a-Bic-pen trick, but the grooves on the pen just kept stripping right off. I was thinking today...if the video lines are picking up too much interference from the power supply, how did the Famicom AV get...

As far as the box is concerned... there's only 2 ways to remove it. Use a desoldering station or use a heat gun. Solder + hand pump/braid will never get it off. Yeah, I was using braid.

Just thought I'd dig up an old thread, here... I got a top loader the other day, and am very interested in this mod.
