Great progress!   Quick comment - the Directory Manager colors are normally white on blue. Is the photo misleading or did you adjust your mdos colors or is there a difference in how the colors are displayed through the circuit?

It's my camera on my phone.  The colors are white on blue and looks great.

Thanks :)   Today I got to wondering if I had asked the same question before lol.   My Kodak SV1310 started doing the horizontal roll yesterday.  A light smack to the side calmed it down after all other adjustment attempts failed.  The Magnavox is working again (for now) on Heatwave's system.  That monitor has been operational almost 24x7/365 since the late 80s (I change the switch to composite to 'disable' the display when I'm not there)  so I've certainly gotten my money's worth.  I used to loathe taking it to the Chicago Faire for fear that it wouldn't turn back on again ;)

I am waiting on one more part to make exact measurements.  The SCART Female connector I will be using.  I need to make sure I have the clip holes on the PCB correct.  Once I have those in hand then I can order the first DEV Prototype boards.  That will take a couple of weeks to get them in hand to build and test.

 

my plan is to get a few made and send them out to be tested on other Geneve computers.

I received the part to get exact measurements.  My new SCART to HDMI upscaler was lost and I only received the top of the box in the mail...So I have not been able to fully test with the SCART upscaler (since my other got toasted).

 

Good news is that it did work on my old one  so it should.

 

I am going to go through the pcb design a couple more times and make sure all looks right before I order a set of proto boards.

All,

 

I have ordered the first prototype boards from OSHPARK.  It will be a couple of weeks before I have them in my hand to build and test.

 

Renderings of the ProtoTypes are attached.

I got the first prototype built!

 

Works great.  I need to make one adjustment on one of the holes used to help mount the SCART connector as it's a little too far.  This will allow the pressure-clip to go in easier.  but it's nothing to do with the circuit, which is good!

Love it!  I look forward to ordering a lifetime supply from you!

One of the reasons I decided to design it.  I hated the mess and the DIN connector soldering.
