Hi,
recently I have rediscovery my old Toshiba HX-20I MSX1. Wink
The machine is in perfect conditions but I don't have a video cable to connect it to my OSSC and from this to the TV.
What type of cable I must find? I must build it and if the answer is yes where I can find the scheme of it? Unfortunately I don't have the original manuals of the machine.
Thanks.

You can't connect this computer to an OSSC. This computer don't have component video out, Only has composite video on the yellow RCA connector, marked as "VIDEO".

Yes, you can check in the specs that it has RGB output: https://www.msx.org/wiki/Philips_NMS_8280#Connections

If you look on the back of the computer, you'll see that you can even connect it with a generic SCART connector.

Hi Armoured, so like mentioned above by Emphy. The NMS8280 has SCART output. So this cable on Amazon Italy should do the trick to connect it to the OSSC. If you are still interested in connecting the HX-201 to an HDMI screen I think the RetroTINK 2X seems to be a great device for that.
