Perhaps your cable isn't working anymore ? Also check your TV's input setting.

In some CRTs you have to set the channels to get a picture: In my (European) TV it's channel 36 for RF and AV1 for RGB Scart. In addition on my previous TV (now in our living room) I need to set the channel first and then turn on the DC before I can get a picture.

What cable are you using and what TV (CRT, LCD, etc.) ?

the adapter description doesn't say anything about supporting the dreamcast at all. so may be thats the problem
