 I have a 10-year-old 13" sony tv and my Sinclair works on channel 3 with an RF modulator.

 Thanks for all the input!  I should note that I have no issues with any of my other TV tuner based systems, including many older than the Timex/Sinclair systems!  There’s definitely something different about these.  I do get the K cursor, but the audio is all noise and I get no feedback that I can see from the keyboards.  They can’t all be bad, and they are in virtually unused condition.

I’m not going to purchase an old CRT TV just to resell it (maybe I’ll try a local request for a free one), but I’ll try running them through a VCR or old camcorder and see where that gets me.  I also have a bunch of inline coax filters that I can try (not really expecting different results.). I don’t want to spend too much time on these as everyone seems to want me to get to the TRS-80 systems!
