The first sign means:

 

"-" -> doesn´t work with NTSC

"+" -> works with NTSC

 

The second sign means:

 

"-" -> doesn´t work with PAL

"+" -> works with PAL

 

A "?" means not tested.

 

So "-/-" means it neither works in NTSC nor in PAL.

 

If there are two "?" means that the person who did the entry, didn´t told what color system was used. Probable NTSC, but I´m not shure.

 

Sleepy

Just use PAL/NTSC in stead of + and - ... So if the device is tested with PAL it says.... tadaaa..... 'PAL'! 

And if also tested with NTSC.... PAL+NTSC... And if it is unknown or not tested... what about: 'unknown'?

 

Don't use symbols or signs if it is not needed. It is confusing.

Sleepy,
If you are willing to maintain the master list of compatible Sophia monitors, I would recommend recent changes be reflected in the first message of this thread. I'm sure one of the mods would give you access to do so.

It would be nice if owners would also test their television set for compatibility, not just their monitors.

I'll pipe up, since I don't see it being mentioned...

 

The Sophia puts out a DVI signal, but can do so at a number and variety of resolutions; some 4:3, some 16:9.  Which of those options your Sophia is set for was flashed to the device before Simius sent it to you.  That a monitor accepts DVI and adapted HDMI does not necessarily also mean that it accepts them at the resolution your Sophia is pushing.  Knowing what resolution your Sophia is working at is the trick to knowing whether or not a monitor will display the signal.

Does lag really play a significant role with these slow graphics and framerates?

I can't speak for HDMI or DVI with regard to 8-bit Ataris (I don't own Sophia nor any HDMI upscalers), but the SCART lag on some cheaper LCD TVs is enough to spoil the experience of scrolling graphics 0 text. :)

I used to think this way, too.  But then I learned that almost all modern televisions allow you to disable all of the slow image processing by setting it to "Game Mode".  My current screen (32" Samsung SmartTV) goes from 12ms lag to 2ms when I do this.

my samsung in 'Game Mode' is 10 to 11 ms versus a good crt. But there were far far worse. The best I've seen with anybody who has a middle of the road newer tv around here was about 8ms...

but this is still a fallacy, it depends on where on the crt you place the sensor, and how long it take for the tv to draw the entire new screen and or throw it up on the panel, all at once.

Not all screens had a game mode either.... along with issues of sound not matching the picture exactly either. No! today's screens a still poor... and money didn't seem to determine what was best.. a crappy funai set did better at some thing though the picture was the best than some sets that cost way more did... It's hit or miss that's for sure...

 

the sensor for timing this needs to be where the crt beam starts drawing the screen, I also witnessed the sensor picking up the back light pulsing while the picture wasn't even being drawn, super! high speed photography showed that things were not what they seemed.

 

the audio being off is freakish, and the lag showed more so with audio being cranked all the way to the fastest it can be output shows the lag is even greater than one would believe....

 

I did see a monitor led that actually did 2ms lag... but I don't have enough body parts to own one.

 

the dsp in these set take audio in and delays it to match the picture and can be adjusted... the delay between what you select on the computer and when it appears on the screen simply isn't tolerable on most sets today

 

as I get older my lag plus tv lag = no fun

my lag plus crt = fun

Same with my SAMSUNG T32E310 32" LED TV/MONITOR turn game mode on and lagg goes down but on some systems that adds jail bars with the image quality going down even on S-VIDEO or RGB

Add the XRGB-mini upscaler sometimes with good and bad results

Well said.

 

And even if you can afford one, 2ms is still noticeable lagg when you compare it side by side with the 1 micro sec refresh rate of the average CRT.

2ms is nothing. You wouldn't even notice 20ms lag, unless you are 15 years old ;)

Read this:

http://atariage.com/...-5#entry4052904

 

Sophia Rev.C itself does not introduce any extra processing delay.

When you use it with a PC Monitor, you will have very little lag (for example 5ms with Acer S200HLBbd, which is neglectable).

 

The most of TVs have a lag in a range of 100ms - 200ms in a normal mode, so you really have to remember to switch a TV to the game mode (to disable DSP processing) and you will end up with ~20ms lag.

 

Here is an overview showing example TVs lags:

https://translate.go...t-lag-fernseher

 

Anyway, your ATARI with SOPHIA Rev.C can still be connected to a CRT (over Composite Video), so you don't miss anything.

In my opinion Sophia is the most efficient way to enjoy your Atari in a living room ;-)

yep the time I quoted are with the better panels in their fastest crappiest display modes and ' far far worse ' sums up 200 ms lag give or take... all I know is I can kick but on a crt and die alot on panel tv's. It's precisely because I'm not 15 that it matters so much as I need all the lead time I can get :)

 

Modern televisions suck ;)   macular degeneration inducing, retinal piercing lag boxes... :) ... the freaking things make it hard to sleep, the light they put off kills melatonin levels.

 

terrible terrible, I found all this out at the eye doctor. I will be getting uv/hev/blue blocking lenses....
