So I wanted to bump up this thread to remind people that if they're getting some fringing or artifacting around text that you don't care for, the little potentiometer on the UAV can be adjusted. I decided today to see if I could improve my text in software 80 column mode (using The Last Word) - as it happens, my particualr 800XL daily driver machine needed the pot to be tweaked almost entirely through its range counter-clockwise. Made a tremendous difference. :)

I just want to let everyone know that I've arrived at my new place in Michigan and I've got parts on the way to fulfill the April orders. I'm buried in boxes and emergency home repairs but I'll be responding to everyone's messages shortly and determining how many waiting list orders can be filled. Now I've just got to find my tools and supplies.

Sorry to hear about the emergency home repairs but very much looking forward to the second Rev D board I've ordered.  I got a "new" (to me) 800Xl tonight as a parts machine and while testing, I was astounded at how much worse the stock video on it is compared to my UAV-equipped daily driver. :)

Sorry to hear it Bryan.  Get the home front squared away first.  As much as I am looking forward to my UAVs, anything Atari is the very definition of secondary in the bigger scheme of things.

Maybe I missed the (or a) list, but I want 3 more plug-in kits if possible :-)

 

Thanks, Jurgen

Really looking forward to this. I'm actually contemplating selling another vintage machine (SGI Indigo^2 10K) to buy an 800xl to put my expected UAV in. :)

 

Thanks so much and I hope the house gets sorted well and quick. Sorry to hear that. :(

Does anyone know if this will fit the PAL 800XLF which has the Freddie chip and from what I can see no C56 or C54?

 

Bryan, if I wanted just one now, what sort of wait would I be looking at?  The picture is terrible and this is my only Atari so I don't think I can face waiting ages to fix it.

 

Thanks

Just learned about this. Would love this for my 7800. Please add me to the next waitlist.

ALSO just learned of this. I'd like to be added to the waiting list for one for my 800XL.  Would this have any compatibility issues with this PAL/NTSC mod (basically swapping in a PAL Antic chip) as seen in this youtube video?

Please put me down for 3 800xl units if there is room on the list.

 

Thanks,

Bryan all the best with the home repairs, hope everything goes smoothly.
If I'm already not on the list, put me down for 3 of the basic kits! :)
