Re: New video output system

So Sinclair's routing the RGB video signals to the expansion connector was a complete waste of time and resources. I can kinda understand why an expansion may need the sync signals, but I can't think of any practical and useful reason for making the RGB video signals available on the expansion conne...

Re: New video output system

So were there any expansion cards that actually used the RGB video line connections on the expansion connector?

Re: New video output system

Does it make use of the existing RGB video output pins of the 8301?

Re: New home wanted for stack of PCW magazines

Hi Sparrowhawk / JY and Derek @Derek - if you want to scan any/all of the magazines, I've got no problem with that. Whereabouts are you? I live not far from Bristol. I have a basic flat bed scanner, so could scan the occasional article or feature, but I don't have enough spare time to scan entire ma...

Re: New home wanted for stack of PCW magazines

When you say Bath, I presume you mean Bath in BANES?

I live a mere 33 miles away, so could collect and save them ;)

Re: PMs disabled.

A potential customer may look at what you have done and what you have said and decide that if you are not willing to communicate in the way that they want, they may decide that you are not wo...

Re: Naive question about SCART connection on TV

Most IDE/ATAP to CF adaptors are just passive interfaces. On other systems, the problems occur due to the OS not being fully compliant with the standard that the CF is using. Or the CF not implementing all the IDE/ATA protocols in the same way as a real hard drive. And of course, the quality of the ...
