I was thinking a "99/4A Reloaded" would be awesome.  Drop-in replacement with 16-bit 32k or on-board SAMS, assorted cartridges built-in, F18A on-board, four-chip sound, built-in DSDD floppy controller (will present a small problem with stock console clam-shells,) on-board speech.

 

To maintain the console case integrity, the video out could be an 8-pin DIN carrying SVGA RGB and sync, stereo audio, or for extra bang an HDMI port.  The 8-pin would require a special cable, and an HDMI port might require licensing unless (maybe) you use DVI signalling and not an official HDMI (would also require separate stereo out, but in the space it would be easy with a headphone jack sitting with the "HDMI" port.)  Oh, and replace the cassette port with a DE9 port and real RS-232.  Option for a CF card a-la nanoPEB or would the FDC and a Gotek/HxC suffice?

 

While the C64 Reloaded boards use original chips, I cannot think of many chips which would be easy to transplant from an original TI board -- almost all of them are soldered onto the board.  9901 in FPGA?

 

Am I missing anything? :)

Look at what Fabrice is doing with the (TI)ny 99.

This is going to be a weird request for help, but here it goes...

 

I know a really nice senior citizen in his 80's who has an old TV, as it has RCA jacks, but no HDMI, USB or anything else of value.

He lives in a retirement community, with crappy off-air TV signals and being on a fixed income he cannot afford to replace his TV, let alone subscribe to cable.

 

Well, his birthday is coming up in March, so I was thinking, "What would be something useful that he could use"?  What came to mind would be a USB reader that multiple videos could be put on and viewed, but the device would have to have an RCA composite output.  Has anyone heard or seen of such a thing?

Yeah, I thought so too.  Some of the guys here could probably use something like this as well.  One could watch videos on their old TI computer monitor!  It'll also work with older HDMI TV's that do not support USB memory sticks.

 

I found another eBay place to order that has more in stock << HERE >>

PISSED OFF

"No good deed goes unpunished"

 

When you realize one of those dozen Micro USB cables you donated to the Goodwill last week with a bunch of other stuff probably contained the Sync Cable for your Handycam!  Now you cannot access your videos because sticking the micro SD card directly in the computer only gives you access to the still photos, not the videos.  :mad:

That sucks.  Are the videos just in a format you cannot read or do they seem to not be present?  If the files are present, I would try using ffmpeg to convert them.  Just using an .mp4 extension for the output will encode H.264 4:2:0YUV and AAC, which is playable by just about everything.

What really sucks is my declining memory.  My brain must have confused the separate HDMI cable for use with the HDTV with the many USB cables I have for various devices and cameras.  This morning when I was checking to see if the Samsung data cable would work, I saw the built-in USB connector on the Handycam was tucked into the carry strap on the video camera!  Jeez!  I should have gotten suspicious when I could not find a suitable replacement online.  I'm losing it and do not know how much longer I'll be able to hang around the boards here.

It appears that I will be in San Diego for the next couple of days, but I have to be back home before the weekend. That should be interesting, as I haven't explored the specific place I'll be working at before.
