Audio and composite video most likely.

Mitch

Some monitors have separate Horizontal & Vertical sync as well. This device was most likely for an Atari arcade game system, not a computer

I can't look this up right now but did you check whether the item appears in Atari's 8-bit master list? You'll find it on our site in the "docs" section.

I Need to see how many I have, I wonder how much it would be to have the chinese reproduce these? RGB is popular right now.

that is a good idea, it looks pretty simple, should be fairly inexpensive to reproduce, maybe in a smaller form factor. Wonder if it would work on a 400/XL/xeż

Hello guys

@Arnaud: Thanks for the picture.

@Mimo: Shouldn't be to hard for somebody who's designed PCB's before, to reduce this to at least half the size.

Sincerely

Mathy

It appears the DIN8 connector was commonly used for Peritel before they standardized on the SCART/Euro connector, which became compulsory on all new television sets sold in France starting from January 1980.

The ZX Spectrum +3 also used the DIN8 and I came across the following instructions for building an SCART adapter cable for it. It should be possible to adapt to other connectors using the SCART pinout information but RGB output may require a 15MHz compatible monitor.

I would doubt that it would need a 15mhz monitor. Surely this was produced to use in the home on a standard TV set

How different is the 400 board? Any chance of some pictures? I would love an rgb 400

The Plot thickens. I Just realized I got my Atari 800 and 400 from the same guy and both of them have wood grain, screw down, cartridge doors made out of steel. I can't even find a picture of these things. All of the ones I have seen have plastic doors on hinges.


Will post pics later

Does this board provide RGB output or is it simply an adapter for the 8-pin standard? My (admittedly limited) understanding of peritel/SCART is that is has connections for composite video as well.

If this board can be cloned to provide an easy RGB output, this is pretty exciting.. Just seems too good to be true.

Everyone assumes thats what it does. The pic's above should show you how to hook it up.

To what parts of the 400/800 does it get connected to?

Bottom of the main circuit board like in the pic's above. I have not tried one yet because there isn't a space to put it in-in my 800.

Probably Better to wait until mimo gets his. If I had some extra time I could do it to mine.

You noticed I'm not guaranteeing installing mine either.
