  1. Lightness at the bottom must be camera angle or room lighting. Didn't see that in person.
  2. Trying it out with my first Atari. My UAV modded, 48k, A400. First time using my Nuxx with it since the upgrades as well. Videos even better!
  3. I had been using CRC QD electronic cleaner, but it seemed to do very little. After seeing everyone buying Deoxit I tried looking for that, instead finding WD40 Specialist Contact Cleaner. This stuff seems to clean blue corrosion right off! Also takes solder flux off without scrubbing. https://www.amazon.com/WD-40-Specialist-Electrical-Contact-Cleaner/dp/B00AF0OFVU/ref=asc_df_B00AF0OFVU/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167130986292&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4857551779207064659&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9033598&hvtargid=pla-316073662257&psc=1
  4. I should get a kickback! lol and wow.. available from 1 other store at $45 now!
  5. XL/XE OS won't fit on a 2764 right? As far as I know, I have no place i can use a 2764. I'm just using it to try and verify that my setup will indeed burn an eprom. File I used is a binary for a different chip. To try and rule out a file mismatch, I burned the 2764a first with the tl866 and verified it. Then I read it in the RD atari burner. Ereased my eprom and burned it back to 2764a. All seemed to work fine. When I verify on the atari does it give any indication of it being good? I hit verify it does something then back to the main menu. After this I tried to verify the chip again on the tl866, but it was all different. I have seen where I can change from hex to binary etc. Didn't think of trying that. So I think my burner is indeed working now. Which brings me back to burning 2732A and 2532A eproms. What speeds or brands may work better? Both sets I have are 450 nanosecond. Most of the 2732a's won't even show empty on the Atari, but do on the tl866. All of the 2532A's show empty, but won't program. Even after attempting to burn both versions will show empty afterwards.
  6. Ya, i've got a couple CRT tv's and a real nice 42" lcd just for gaming. But none of them are handy, so my retro computers don't get used much. Now this device let's me cheaply hook up to my pc monitor where I spend most of my time anyway. I can set the Atari right in front of me at typing level, instead of up on a dresser or down on the floor. My 800xl will get much more use this way.
  7. I'm stuck with a 2532 for the device I'm wanting to burn for. It has a special eprom holder instead of a socket. I recieved a 2764 yesterday. Just tried burning it, and it shows it completes, and verifies on the atari burner. But when I put it in my tl866 and try verifying against the file it fails. Nearly completely different.
  8. I have a 32" CRT Tv that's 1080p hdmi. It's in the back room and rarely even get's turned on anymore. Way too heavy to move by myself too.
  9. Now does anyone have a Pal computer to try with their ntsc screen?
  10. I recieved the rounded corner model. First pic. My 800xl has a UAV so this is using Svideo to HDMI. And yes, my 800xl is NTSC. I've thought about converting one of my atari's to PAL but always got hung up on the monitor. Those of you who try PAL with this, I'd like to know how it goes.
  11. Tried using my 800xl instead of my 1088xel. Still won't burn any of my eproms. Also tried uping the voltage a bit, no joy. I have a 2764 coming to see if I can burn that.
  12. Just recieved a svideo/composite to hdmi convertor from Amazon today. It also does PAL to NTSC, but I haven't tried that. Using this so that I can connect my 800xl to my Samsung 4k computer monitor. Plugged in, set the box to 720p and my monitor to 4:3 mode, and I have an excellent picture. Played some Centipede and Tetris, didn't notice any lag. At least nothing I can blame for dying lol. I'd take a pic of the screen, but I've allready disconnected everything for the moment. No idea on longevity, but so far it's doing what I need, and it's only $23. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004UNYX9M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. I've got the M2732A-2FI ST and 2532A-45jl TMS eproms. No success with either. I've got Dropchecks original 2732a adapter and 2 home built 2532A adapters I use with my tl866. Thanks for the recommendation on what chip to try just to make sure it works at all, Dropcheck. That may be my next step. Also thinking of adjusting the 21v up just a hair to see if that changes anything. I seem to be able to read either chip after it's burned on my tl866 without problems. Just haven't gotten a successful burn at all. One of my original PIA's was most definitely bad, but I think I've got 2 good ones now. Also now that I've got the 2532A's, and my 800xl unbricked, I'll try it with that Atari instead of my 1088xel. In case there's some kind of incompatiblitiy there for some reason.
