And, after a slight detour for emergency home renovations that took too long, the 4M respin is now at version four and 99% complete!

The video adapter is also 95% complete on version two. I am just weighing up reasonableness of adding support for a SCART connector instead of RGB/S-Video/Composite sockets. As the sockets are on an external plug-in PCB on a short cable, either could work. Catch is SCART uses some odd voltages to signal formats and ratios, and I'd have to redesign the main board to accommodate that.

The 4M card just clicked over from 99% to 100%!

Goals!

Still working on the custom output board for the S-Video card. Maybe later today.
