I finally got my Sega CD setup and discovered I only have the Sega Genesis power cube. Does anybody know of a reliable online service for ordering replacement Sega Genesis and CD parts?

Should I also invest in the A/V out cable? How much of a difference is this than the regular RF cable?

Any help would be appreciated.

scart and auto sensing switch works like Brn's solution too

scart/rgb and auto sensing switch works like Brn's solution too, but then with sharp pixels ;)

Open your mouth and prove it

I love RF for one simple reason, daisy chaining. With my systems hooked together and into the same power strip, I could switch between PS1, PS2, SNES, GameCube, and Dreamcast just by turning them on or off.

Laziness > Sharp Pixels

(especially on my naturally fuzzy projection TV)

RGB Scart cable

I can say from personal experience that the scart-RGB cable makes a world of difference. As does such a cable do on the Sega Saturn device.
PAL only I guess....

Sega Power Issues

Thanks for the clarification. I'll begin the search for the Sega CD power brick on Ebay, along with the video interface cable. I was pretty bummed that the Sega CD didn't power on with the Genesis cube, after spending the better part of last night cleaning up the system from being stored away so long.

Yes, the Genesis requires

Yes, the Genesis requires its own power brick, the Sega CD requires its own power brick and the 32X requires its own power brick. They're all roughly the same, though the tip is a bit different on the 32X one. It's actually quite insane when you use all three together and requires additional power strips (at least in my case). It's really a terribly inefficient way of doing it. All those bricks get real hot too. On the plus side, using one of the Sega power bricks is the only way my Neo Geo AES works, so I'm happy about that.

Interesting...

With the Genesis power cube plugged directly into the Genesis that unit works, but not the CD of course. With the Genesis power cube plugged into the main CD unit case nothing powers on. I just can't remember if I had to use 2 power cubes to run the whole thing. I'll keep messing with it. Tks for the info and I'll have the other half check Ebay.

RGB

We had a Sony Trinitron RGB monitor on our Amiga 1000 and 3000. Good monitor, but sucked for interlaced modes (flicker was terrible).

RGB never took off over here

RGB never took off over here sadly as a connection except for certain computers, so no versions here.

The European MegaDrive II

The European MegaDrive II supports RGB! The product code for the SCART cable is SCMD2-HW (that I googled ;) ).
