I agree. A standard resolution like 1920×1080 or 480, 720 can be upscaled by the TV, but a big input can't be reduced, at least vast majority of TVs.

Even an experiment with the original resolution 320×192 maybe could be upscaled.

I sure wish it would fit under the shield of my 800.

 

Is a 40 wire Ribbon cable a possibility?

Just finished up an install of the Sophia DVI upgrade and it's amazing.  1280x1024 looks great and seems to work on most modern monitor and televisions.  I'm using a standard DVI to HDMI converter cable.  Easy install other than actually mounting the DVI port on the 600XL (64K, Atarimax APE Warp+ OS 32-in-1, Sophia DVI and audio jack).  I'm happy with the end result and everything works properly.  I decided to leave the RF intact, so you can even do simultaneous Channel 2/3 RF and DVI on side by side screens.  The inside wiring is pretty ugly, but here is a shot of the finished DVI and audio jack on the 600XL.
