Does anyone have recommendations for a specific inexpensive RF demodulator that's higher quality than your standard VCR (and maybe a little bit smaller)? Like any old equipment floating around that could do it? I have access to a lot of junk that's regularly trashed at work, but there's so much different AV equipment that I wouldn't know what to look for. I haven't found a high quality standalone RF demodulator yet that's reasonably priced IMO.
My personal experience with demodulators in VCRs hasn't been favorable, but if anyone has a specific brand/model they like, that would be helpful. I'm looking to get an Atari 2600's picture quality as clean as possible without doing an RGB conversion and modding it (not that I can't, but I prefer to keep it in factory condition). I understand that I'm not going to get 4k resolution and a 1600000:1 contrast ratio from something through RF; just wanting decent picture. I am running this through to a 1080p TV so having a 16:9 mode available would be nice. I have HDMI, composite and component options.
