So I'm about to attempt this.

http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/other/sync.htm

I am scrapping parts from random electronics that would've been trashed.

Question.
The capacitors pictures look like they say 104M
And I have a little radio shack board here with capacitors that say 104Z,
Does this matter? Can I use these?

You need 0.1uf. Those particular markings are no guarantee.

I have fistfulls of these caps and resistors (easier to just buy 100 of each when I got them), and even some lm1881s. I'd hook it up on the cheap if you need some, or another member here has pre-assembled PCBs that are very tidy.

Z and M are tolerance markings.

Feel free to send me an email dude, I don't have any LM1881N's and I'm in dire need.
Got a snow day and want to get something rigged. Think there's a way to use parts from an old NES RF connector to help clean the signal? I have one sitting here and I keep staring at it thinking something magical might happen.
