Yeah it looks like a european Telebiko, on another note I've been looking for other vhs based consoles and found this very obscure gem http://cgi.ebay.com/View-Master-Interact...2QQcmdZViewItem

Only ships in America though frown

No worry, I've set up a snipe for it. It should go nicely with my Action Max. :-) I've also been thinking about picking up some Captain Power toys and videos. The toys had an infrared sensor so you could shoot at the screen. I don't think emulation would be quite the same, but perhaps something could be done.

Have you tried to open yours up yet? When I cracked mine open to have a peek at its guts I noticed the knobs on the front panel hold the pcb in place, and most of the insides are held together with fragile wires and tape. I couldnt get a good enough look at what (if any) cpu it uses. I was also told that all the action max systems were ntsc too, but mine and the tape it came with are pal and a line in the manual is blacked out with marker pen... who knows maybe what I have is a pal prototype or they just cut corners making this thing.

I only just noticed this but the sticker on the Sonic Fury tape even has the FBI warning and the fine for copying it is in dollars.

Pretty odd for a pal console

I guess sniping was unnecessary, as I won the View Master Interactive Vision for $0.99.

As for the Action Max, I've never opened it up. I did notice that it said NTSC on the bottom. Does your's say PAL?

I spoke to Fredric Bl?•holtz awhile ago and to his knowledge there is no difference between the different regional releases of the channel f, apart from the Luxor bios which I submitted. While he hasn't seen any grandstand units all the SABA, ITT, units he's come across use the standard bios. Should I delete the Luxor, SABA, and ITT from the wanted list? Or add a note? Conversation with Fredric is here: http://www.freelists.org/archives/channelf/05-2006/msg00000.html
