Heh! I got one of these for a Christmas present. It worked fine, but got real boring, real quick.

I think you are confused about the 3 difficulty switches... you stated "beginner : slow ball, big paddles / advanced : fast ball, big paddles / expert : fast ball, small paddles"

however it's really:
(beginner : slow ball, big paddles / INTERMEDIATE : SLOW BALL, SMALL PADDLES / PRO : fast ball, BIG PADDLES)

this is what I get from my Telstar Alpha unit.

the unit I have I've hacked so that it's directly connected via RF (as opposed to using a metal sliding switch box). I soldered a slightly modified NES RF box. I recommend doing this on your unit, as it gets much better video results (crystal clear!).

I wonder if RCA jacks can be made from it.. it would be more convenient
