First: I'm completely new to TI-99. I always was interested in having one because its CPU was something else than the common known 6501, 680x, Z80 or 80x86.

Two weeks ago I found a TI-99 in a barn which should be an European one because of the 6-pin video output connector. But that is also the trouble: it seems that it outputs YPbPr and not, what I hoped, composite video. Of course I looked on internet for a solution but nothing, not even one that said "use this monitor!". So what should I do to connect it to, preferably, a composite or RGB monitor?
Many thanks in advance!

Just popped up: I haven't tried its RF output. Let's find out if my TV can handle it. But this cannot be permanent solution.

Edit: just found out, it doesn't have a RF output. Probably only American models do.

Have a look around for old TVs. They used to have a YPbPr input. My old LG from 2012 does (as well as HDMI, SCART and composite).
