I'm interested in this for my UK pal Atari 800xl (imported to NZ by the guy I purchased off) but I am wondering if its worth it given my display (Sony KLV-19T400A - multi region TV with component, PC RGB connector, HDMI, composite - but no S-video).
Are there any converters recommended to convert the s-video signal to RGB, component or HDMI video? Or does this upgrade provide sufficient improvement to warrant installation based on composite video improvements alone?
Another option is that I acquire another TV or monitor. If so, can you guys recommend any particular brand / model combos recommended? (A bonus would be proven available monitor suitable for the ST and Amiga!)
I have seen s-video to rgb or composite cables on Ebay, but can't understand how a cheap cable can convert between what I understand to be colour incompatible video transmission formats...
Apologies if Ive missed any relevant discussion about this - it's taken me about 4 days off and on to read all 26 odd pages on this forum.
I haven't tried the UAV in the 800XL yet but the composite output on the Atari 400 was exceptionally crisp - in fact it appeared better than the standard composite output on the original Atari 800. I have another plug in board and a couple of kits to work with so will try over the coming weekend if time permits - might be able to help you out if you are in Auckland - did you buy the 800XL off me?
