? You can add s-video by just adding one wire (adds the missing chroma line) then if you want to you can add a hand full of resistors to increase the quality of the video output

I was told I could use this in other atari's aswell. Which is the only reason why I put my name down for one. If that's the case then I'll leave it.

Which other Ataris would you want to fit it in? the only ones I can think of are the 400 which has no monitor port and the XEGS which only has composite  output. As for the 2600/7800 etc there are better mods (VGA coming to a 2600 near you soon)

Picking up a CGA/EGA monitor tonight for my RM Nimbus PC!

This also means I can take out the VGA card in my IBM AT and put back in the original EGA card.  ;D

I know nothing about these machines, so may well need some guidance  ;) not 100% they are working, but it's worth a try, the guy is only 5 miles down the road !

I will have some Sun gear at the event in november. I can show you stuff, and even try and configure yours if you bring them.

Well I picked this up last night, I will try and post a photo.

But basically I got 2 towers (one I believe works, whilst the other has sacrificed parts to fix the second), Labelled Sun Ultra 10
Another case which appears to house 3 Hard drives
2 tape drives
2 keyboards and mice
Boxes of manuals and discs
The heaviest monitor I have ever lifted  :o which has a very strange connector on the end of it  :-\
It comes packaged with Solaris 7 Desktop (means nothing to me)

Everything seems to be SCSi based, which is something I've never had any involvement with before

Currently enjoying the UltraSatan - much more compatible with a lot more types/brands of SD card.  A helluva lot faster than the older SatanDisk but not yet done any write-tests via PASTI of my original game disks but I'll get there one night :)
