Thanks Bill and Brendan!
Bill, I saw the spec on wikipedia for the CoCo 2 and 3. The CoCo 3 has a nice bullet list which includes the video out options, but the CoCo 2 description does not, hence my doubt.
I would like a CoCo 3, but all those that I have seen hover around $100 USD and that is beyond my budget. However, I'd rather save and wait than purchase a CoCo 2 that needs modification (another added expense), unless I can score one for a few US bucks ;-D. I need composite out for my project.
Brendan, you mentioned routing the video through a VCR.What video output does the CoCo 2 have that can be connected to the VCR?
Again, thanks! Salvador

That's the only option unless you have a CoCo 2 designed for the education
market (the one I have is model 26-3128A). That has proper composite out by
default. Of course, a CoCo 3 has composite out as well in addition to RGB.
