If an 1088XEL made an appearance on 8bitGuy's web show it would definitely increase exposure and possibly bring a few more sales. I'd have to agree with Dr. Venkman though, as $300 is a lot of money. 8bitGuy did say the 1088XEL was a cool project on Facebook, so he is already aware of it.

 

I dunno, do you really think we have a chance of competing with that PE6502 board? It sure has some awesome looking games!

 

:rolling:

 

Seriously though, it was a rather nice implementation of a micro Apple1. I especially liked the idea of using the Propeller chip to sub in for the original video terminal chip, although it's too bad that they didn't enable some additional screen addressable aspects. But when the guy on the show soldered in the power connector very crooked I couldn't help cringing every time I saw it.

Finally finished the pdf/video I talked about.  There will be a third video on the PIC Adapter being offered by MacRorie.  As soon as I get the pcbs in and assembled.  :)
 
  In the meantime this should give those folks who intend to DIY the 1088XEL boards a good start on what is needed and how to do it.  Mytekcontrols also offers the Joy2PC programmer that will work with the PIC Adapter as well.  His newer pcb will combine Joy2PC programmer with builtin single PIC chip programming socket.  Both will be Atari joystick controled.

 
 
Just wanted to update this post.  I've finished the third video on the PIC adapter itself.  So I updated the pdf file with the link to the final Youtube video. 
 
Also wanted to show a pic of what the final XEL Multi-AUX SIO and PIC Adapter boards would look like once completely assembled.

Let MacRorie know if you want one of these.  I think he is going to offer both assembled and bare board options.
