I made a post about my progress on the QL-VGA project, head over to https://www.kilgus.net/2020/01/08/ql-vga-the-second/ if you are interested.

Cheers, Marcel

Curious about implementation: do you convert and output the pixels as they come in, or rather store the frame in memory?

50Hz source is converted into 60Hz output to match the VESA spec, so full frame store (double buffering).

Hi Marcel,

Nice looking PCB, I would be interested in a board.

I never really had any success with SCART to HDMI converters.


Regards,

Derek

Great project Marcel!

I like the design decision to use a widely-available cheap platform.

Seeking for testers? I would jump in with my various QLs and multiple VGA monitors.

Looking forward to see this thing become available for the QL community.

Probably because of all the porn I host? Hardware-porn that is, not hardcore :twisted: I've had this in my previous page because I had a "hacking" section which is of course absolutely evil, but the current page should be very clean :?:
