C > CONIC > TVG-209   


This system comes from germany but many clones exist in several other countries. The documentation is both in english and german.

This picture doesn't show the cables because they all could be stored into storages. Detachable controllers have their own cable storage at their back and the main unit has got a large storage for the video cable (see more pictures section).

This is in fact a classic pong system that uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here though the AY-3-8500 includes these games. They simply did not put any rifle plug :(

The score is displayed on screen but there are two other sliders on the unit that allow the players to play set by set. Once one of the player win by scoring 15 points on screen, he manualy scores 1 on the unit and so on...

Now, it's a quite common system in europe and not a so nice looking one compared to others.

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


I have an unbranded pong console which is clearly identical to this model, although I cannot find a reference to its given model number ("TVG-2001" as opposed to "TVG-209") anywhere . The manual is indeed in German and English (rather poorly translated). There is no identification of the manufacturer anywhere on the packaging or documentation.
