I scored a Timex Sinclair 1000 with the RAM expansion module, Manual, Thermal Printer and original Paper for $60. Now I can finally find out what all this ZX Spectrum hubbub is all about.

I can't seem to get a good image on my TVs though. Both my CRT and LCD TVs are having trouble displaying the RF signal. the text is extremely hard to read or completely blended into the black background. It seems like they are trying to auto-adjust the signal or something. I tried plunging directly in using an RCA to F connector adaptor (like for the Atari) and also using a Nintendo RF Switch box, the switch box was a little better but still unuseable. Any thoughts?
