Hi all,

I have found my beloved MSX HX-10 in my attic 35 years on from when I used to play it, however, no cables or tape recorder (I know this is broken and long gone)

Does anyone have any ideas where I can get cables etc (found one on ebay) and more importantly, can I use ANY computer tape recorder with it?

Really hope someone can help so I can get her up and running again, have found 100's of games up there also Smile

Thanks in advance

Hi tubateacher, you can buy cables from retrocables.es.

You can also connect your phone to the tape recorder input, and load games by playing WAV files, or CAS files using an app. Although I’m not certain they will work right straight away if they’re mono jacks, you may need to use an adapter.

Whether you can use any tape recorder I suspect it depends on the tape recorder, I can imagine some other systems used proprietary connections. But the MSX ones are simply mono audio in and outputs and a rem cable to control the motor, so if the tape deck supports it I reckon it will work.

There are a few places to get MSX cassette cables but if you find a tape recorder with a REM socket is best but any brand.

Cool Novelties are a good place for cables in the UK.

If you are struggling to find a lead, I could probably dig you one out.

No idea but I don’t see why not. At least their address form has the UK in the country field, as well as the US, Japan, etc.

I think they will deliver. I've bought time ago a video cable from them and they delivered it here in Italy. So, why not to UK?
