The Nomad Triple Bypass kit was designed to be as simple as possible to install, but we understand some people may want to pass on that. If you don’t feel up to the task of performing the install, or just plain don’t want to, we can take care of that for you. By default the Video Bypass is not performed. Ensure that you select that option if you want to take full advantage of the kit. The Video Bypass is compatible with the 3 major screen options (Stock, Composite Video, LCDDRV).
Enable SMS Mode provides a connection to allow playing Sega Master System games. The Nomad Triple Bypass already enables the audio channels, but an additional modification is necessary to enable the SMS mode of the VDP.
Disabling Composite Video will output 75ohm CSync to maintain compatibility with HDRetrovision cables. There are no distinct advantages to disabling composite video on the Nomad, but the option is there for those who want it. This option is not available and will be ignored, if the Video Bypass is not selected.
If you would like a speaker replacement as well, please purchase a new replacement speaker from us. We will provide the installation for free with purchase.
All installs will receive a new headphone/speaker volume potentiometer. These are a common failure point on these systems. To ensure the best quality output, we are providing a direct replacement with the same specifications as the original.
The cartridge slot must be replaced and the cartridge dust flap must be removed for installation.
