What YouTube’s My Mate VINCE instead did was connect his Nintendo Switch’s digital HDMI cable to an analog converter, which was then piped into an old VCR which converted the signal to RF. Wiring the VCR to an antenna, with a signal booster in-between, essentially created a low-power pirate TV station the Watchman could be tuned into.


Is it a better solution than just using the Nintendo Switch’s own screen? Absolutely not. This is a hack for hack’s sake, but it warms my heart knowing that my beloved Watchman still might have a few more tricks up its sleeve.
