I bought my 2007FP to use it's S-Video input with my 130XE. Sadly, the internal conversion in the monitor is really, really bad. I ran the S-Video from my 130XE into my Framemeister and the picture is much, much, much cleaner. Maybe I just have a bad unit? It's possible.
I'm way more interested in this awesome opportunity for the 15 kHz input capability.
I use this exact model with an OSSC. Handles Line 5x mode perfectly.
I agree the s-video processing is subpar (I run it through an Extron upscaler now)
My introduction to the Atari 8-bit line was a friend’s 600XL with the 1064 expansion. I thought it ruined the aesthetics of the computer (which is why I bought an 800XL later).
I got a 600XL a couple years back and performed the internal RAM upgrade some months back. The 600XL has new found appeal for me now.
Copy the UPD file to the root directory of your USB. With the computer powered off, press and hold both buttons on the Gotek and then power on the computer. The Gotek will read the update file and update the firmware (you’ll see “UPD” displayed on the LED display while its upgrading).
In the zip file, you find a generic CFG file and an Atari ST AUTOBOOT.HFE file that you can copy to the root directory of your USB. This will give you the File Selector that will start when the drive is set to slot “000”.
I encountered this problem the other day with my 1200XL and an SIO2SD.
I was using a 9VAC 1A power supply (an Australian one) as I couldn’t use the 9VAC 3A power supply I received with it from the US - the unit would power down mid read.
I dug out an Australian PSU for an 1050 disk drive and used that with the 1200XL and SIO2SD. The SIO2SD is powered by the SIO port so it was obviously drawing more power than the 1A PSU could supply.
Passion and possibly profit are just some things that motivate people to continue to undertake these projects on 30 year old hardware. Chris post as he works through a problem is something that others may benefit from (or simply ignore if it isnt of interest).
The best part of these forums is the exchange of ideas. The more technically knowledgeable members will delve into a level of investigation that many of us arent capable of, even if its on getting a floppy drive working. The worst part of these forums to people taking their grievances public. Most people will prefer to read the former.
I did have one adapter fail though after removing the card regularly. Other this combination, along with the cheaper SD cards, give you better value for money without compromising performance or reliability.
Of course it is possible. And it is not something hard. But, please don't use words EmuTOS if want to motivate me And especially don't ask that I make simething like it - because then compatibility will fall down to inacceptable level (sorry, but that is what is with it). At the moment, I think that minimal amount of letters is OK, will add there possibility to change refresh rate. But if you give me some concrete hint, what to add I will consider. I will not look what EmuTOS shows after reset - partially because they may accuse me for plagiarism. What I will do must look different.
It would be useful to see on the splash screen:
- CPU type and speed
- Available RAM
(Understandably, these might be of more use in emulators where those two may change regularly but still nice to see).
Is adding support for Alt-RAM possible in TOS 1.xx?
