Is it working? 1027s are notorious for disintegrating print heads.

When redisigning it, putting more oomph into it to allow >9.600 baud speeds in and out would be interesting. I certainly lack the electronics knowledge to even contemplate such a project as much as I lack applications for 57K modem communication on the Atari but it sure would be cool :-D

Ben is fine. I just got an email from him a few days ago. He's having trouble with his site. He is trying to resolve it.






Good to hear he's OK. I haven't done any business with him but listened to the interview with him on the ANTIC podcast. He sounded like a very special guy who enjoys supporting the Atari community as a kind of "not-really-for-profit" extra income.

In Topic: 1200XL-specific demos / software?

As it doesn't really have any special programming features that later machines lack, I wouldn't expect there to be any "made for 1200XL" software. Until the world had noticed that the 1200XL had arrived and software and books got "400/800/1200XL" stickers it was pretty much gone again and replaced by the 800XL.

Ok, got it. So the composite signal when not disabled, I.e. stripped of its chroma part, bleeds into the S-Video output.

Did you remove the RF modulator and use the channel switch for this?
