Just confirming that I wasn''t crazy remembering I got one of these in 1979: here''s an ad from the shop I bought it from in Basingstoke, dated Dec 1979.

Does anyone have a picture of the original PSU, I see conflicting information for the voltage and amperage. I have an original Rowtron TCS from my childhood but its lost the PSU, I want to be double sure I have the right spec before trying anything that will damage it!

I wrote up a pretty in depth review of the rowtron console last year. Check it out:

The mpt numbers quoted on the products were related to radio emissions compliance.

I can confirm this system was available at least 2 years before 1981. I bought mine from a shop called Videotime in Basingstoke, in 1979. That shop was a regular hangout for the computer nerds from QMC - they stocked the Atari VCS and the Ohio Superboard as well as this. I desperately wanted a computer but couldn''t afford one in those pre-Clive days, and I couldn''t afford the more inviting Atari VCS either, so ended up getting the Teleng branded version of this instead (partly because of the promised future Programmer Module, but I never did see one of those, and before too long I had my ZX80 anyway).
Still, I had a fair bit of fun with the Teleng, even if the software wasn''t a patch on the best VCS games. Took it with me to university where it shared an old black and white valve telly (that I''d bought off a granny in Reading for a fiver) with my zx80.
Eventually replaced by a real VCS that I convinced myself I could afford to buy if I ate nothing but beans for a term.
I wish I knew what happened to the old beast now. I''d definitely fire it up for a go of Gravity Tennis and that pinball with the flippers that looked like giant crinkle-cut chips.

Hi Claire. It means that these games are supposed to exit, but no one confirmed them yet. Can you ?

Looking at my Teleng TCS, everything is dated 1979, around week 13 (2650AI) to week 38 (UM1233). Weirdly, it has 2 modulators, a UM 1263 and a UM 1233. Now to find a +15V PSU....! I also have a load of boxed carts, including one with a DIN plug??? Goodness knows what it''s for...

Me mam still wont let me have mine out her attic, she thinks i''ll break it pmsl, seriously. Used to hammer a space invaders clone on that back when I was about 8 (32 now). Always remember it being hard to find games for, after seeing recently how many were released, I''m not surprised.
