This is a bit of a late posting seeing how the last post was in December of 2011. I'm relatively new to the Atari scene and I recently performed the Super Video 2.1 mod to my 600XL. For some reason I get really crisp video coming out of the Video connection on the 5-Pin DIN but it is monochrome. Not sure what went wrong here. Has anyone else seen this problem?
I don't know about the Super Video 2.1. Pin 4 of the monitor jack is the is the composite pin, pin 5 is the chroma. I installed a monitor jack using the 600XL monitor upgrade from Best, it requires soldering/unsoldering.
I'm pleased with the results. It comes as a kit with 13 resistors, 3 caps, a coil, 3 transistors and a 5 pin monitor jack. The points for everything is already there, you have to clear out the solder from the holes.
You take the channel switch out and put the 5 pin jack there. The kit is called the Jeff Popp modification, $12 ($15 minimum order).
