Hey, lets not bash the CoCo 2. It was meant only to be connected to a TV.

People used to sell composite conversion kits. But I haven't seen anything
recently. Except the rare modded CoCo 2 on eBay.

Best place to ask is on USENET: bit.listserve.coco. Someone usualy has
something tucked away in a drawer.
