Any old Commodore 64 and TRS-80 players out there?

I recently reclaimed my TRS-80 and Commodore 64 (both complete in box and with multiple games each).

I don't have an old TV to hook them up to yet, but wanted to see if there were any old people out there who have fixed/ restored old personal computers from the dawn of time and if there are any good resources out there.

Good luck with Legacy threads in this jumbled mess. Looks like members will have to fight of rit. Especially since it's EXTREMELY easy to add.

Not that I know of, old geezer. I think they might have gone down during the great war of 1861.

I truly hope you find someone, though.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been trying to get this burro to get on the treadmill to power it. :P

I recently started trying to re-collect some of my favorite N64 games, and finding an older TV to play them on has been THE most difficult part, which I absolutely did not anticipate

Your best bet for the old tube televisions is pawn shops, but even then they are rare nowadays.

I can offer you a good burro in exchange for a few pesos.
