Re: Scart to HDMI upscaler

I've just tested one of the metal box with white lettering units from eBay and it loses 4 characters from the right-side of the screen.

Re: Scart to HDMI upscaler

That's because the QL's output is outside the standard for 4:3 TV scan lines. This is why there was a special monitor sold to complement the machine.

Any thoughts about an internal version for the QL?

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

I'd just seen that and was going to post about it. Looks very interesting.

Note: the 129K (or 126K) quoted seems to be a restriction of the ZX Interface 1 and not the device, so this is likely to be different on the QL.

Re: ATARI ST SMSQ/E

I've just tested it. It does run... in monochrome... as a set of windows cowering in the top-left of the screen. Not that useful.

Re: Scart to HDMI upscaler

It looks like that box can only handle composite video and not RGB.

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

I very much doubt a standard QL would have the speed to do TCP/IP at a reasonable speed, it would need some sort of hand-off device doing the leg work. Trying to use the built-in serial ports at anything more than 300 baud is really out of the question due to the overloaded keyboard chip doing the r...
