  1. I own one a later Taiwanese manufactured, fully socketed 800XL that came with BASIC REV.C. I'm pretty sure that all of the fully socketed Hong Kong made XLs came with REV.B though.
  2. I have a SOPHIA board in one of mine. It gives a beautiful, crisp, and clear digital signal so that the 600XL can be used easily on a modern screen.
  3. Is it stupid that the inclusion of 7800 "Food Fight" is the one and only thing that is making my consider picking up one of these systems?
  4. I am still leaning toward the idea that an ANTONIA board would be the right answer for this 600XL. The ANTONIA would completely replace the SALLY, the MMU, the RAM, the DELAY, the OS, and the BASIC chips.
  5. I have one of these on order from Amazon so that I can connect my SOPHIA DVI out and audio out to one single HDMI input. Unfortunately, my shipment box seems to have gotten lost in the mail and the replacement is back ordered and won't be delivered until February 28th. I am looking forward to giving it all a try and hope that this is the all-in-one solution that I have been looking for.
  6. No lie, what I would probably be inclined do is to contact Simius about getting an ANTONIA board to put into it. The ANTONIA will act not only as an OS replacement but also as a RAM upgrade. It's a win/win for the 600XL as far as I am concerned. I have one on one of my 600XLs and it is a fantastic piece of upgrade hardware. You can send Simius a PM here : https://atariage.com/forums/profile/26134-simius/
  7. I wholeheartedly recommend any and all of tf_hh's products. His 600XL upgrade will give you a 576K machine and is quite reasonably easy to install.
  8. I'm pretty sure that you would need a RAM upgraded 600XL for a SDrive to work, at least for the on-screen menu; 16K just seems too little. That said, my ANTONIA upgraded 600XL and my 600XL with the 1064 expansion module both work fine with my SDrive-MAX.
  9. Sorry that I am a few days late with this reply but I think that this is that file that you are looking for. ANT14.ATR ANT.EXE
  10. I am late to the party on this one but I have a 600XL with an ANTONIA board and a SOPHIA board installed in it. This gives the 600XL a huge RAM upgrade, seven selectable OS and BASIC slots, and a digital output. It is pretty much a perfect machine now.
  11. I have a Hong Kong made NTSC 800XL with an ALPS keyboard. It is fully socketed and came in a 1984 Olympics box. I went searching for this very model and, let me tell you, it takes a bit of looking around to find one. To my mind, it is the best XL model that you can get.
  12. ANTONIA is an internal upgrade but it is also a completely solderless solution if your chips are socketed.
  13. The Ultimate Cart has a joystick driven menu. On the disk emulator side, a SIO2SD has an onscreen joystick driven menu and a SDrive-MAX has a built in touchscreen.
  14. I was having a hard time deciding between the Switch Lite and the full sized machine. My wife surprised me last month with a full sized Switch console though and I have to say that she definately made the right call. I did not assume that I would be playing in docked mode nearly as much as I have been. I blame the excellent Switch Pro Controller. It really is a great system overall.
  15. Couldn't the problem also possibly be with the socket for the keyboard's ribbon cable? Maybe loose pins? Just a thought.
