The Vic-20 Modulator gets its power from the VIC where the Radio Shack models may require a battery or AC adapter.... I see them at thrift stores & yard sales now and again. If you need a description, it is a brownish or silverish box with a 5 pin monitor lead on one side, and off the box there is a channel switch and an RCA female connector to connect to a switch box. Older models seem to be silverish with cream/brown/black labels (ala game cartridge) later ones are brownish enamel coated metal.
