Picked up the free Amstrad I was given off another forum today. Needs a bit of cleaning and to find some of my old games.

Not got the room for the telly so it was handy having the modulator with it. Just starting cleaning it up, looks really good. This was the first computer I owned so I'm looking forward to playing some of my old games (If I can remember how to load them  :D).

You need a RGB scart cable for that!  ;)

I've got lots of games, and possibly quite a few duplicates.
Let me know if you want any.

I'm also in the stages of making a compilation tape for Amstrad CPC 464, so I can sort you out with that too if you want.

Do I just use the power cable from the modulator and then use an RGB cable from the computer to the tv? Or do you mean alter
the aerial cable on the modulator to a scart?

Woody, if you have some duplicates I'll take them off you please. Let me know what you have and how much they are.

Thanks

You use the modulator for power, and the scart cable goes from the CPC to the monitor.

My thoughts exactly ...... the RF modulator, altough it works, produces quite a fuzzy output (well, mine does anyway)

I'll have a look through what I have either tonight or tomorrow and will let you know.
Not really made my mind up on price tbh, but it'll probably be cheap.

I've tried the RF lead and it works fine but like Woody said its a bit fuzzy.

Right, I've sent you a PM (well, I will have done in about 2 minutes) with a list of duplicates/don't play I have.
