  1. I'll gladly sell mine. It's a gen zero model (my name's in the manual as a backer). Between the dodgy HDMI display support, the back-power issue (that could have been avoided with proper EVT testing and a Schottky diode), and the arrogance of the folks behind it, I'd like to be rid of it. USD$50.00 plus EMS shipping from Japan and it's yours. PM me to arrange.
  2. Hello Brian, I see that you've been active on AtariAge rather frequently in the past few days, and thus I assume that you've had time to read my response. Is the HDMI issue I reported considered valid? If so, is it going to be investigated and (hopefully) fixed? If not, why not? Thank you in advance for your response.
  3. LG 60UK that has no issues with any other device attached to it. Also tested on the 32-inch Toshiba upstairs, same problem. What changed in the HDMI routines in the 07 core?
  4. HDMI regression from version 6: * video no longer stable; vertical jitters and sporadic loss of video signal, * red pixels appear and disappear randomly on screen. Video signal from service menu is unaffected. Reverting to version 6 fixes signal issue.
  5. I'll also keep an eye on the Yahoo Japan auctions. Controllers seem to come up pretty frequently for between ¥1000 and ¥1500; I'll grab 'em as they come around.
  6. Bad news, folks ... ... I hit both Super Potato and that smaller place out towards Ueno on Chuo-dori, and neither of them had any of the NTT controllers in stock (although they had some controllers with additional sliders that I had never seen before). They didn't know when they'd be back in stock. I'll keep checking every week or so, buy them when they appear, and let you all know when that happens. Sorry again ...
  7. I was going to hit Akihabara on Tuesday anyway. I intend to buy up as much as they have in stock and offer them to the community for cost plus shipping plus maybe five bucks for my efforts. I'll post back to the thread the results. I was thinking cost + shipping + maybe five bucks for my efforts per order for total. If anyone wants anything else from Super Potato (a partial online catalog is at www.superpotato.com ), let me know and I'll see if it's in stock. Worst case we can order online and have it shipped to my place from their warehouse in Osaka. This is all dependent on them actually having stock available -- I didn't see them on the website, so as I said I'll go in person and ask the staff.
  8. I live in Tokyo, not too far from Akihabara (and thus Super Potato). I don't have a problem with grabbing a few controllers and shipping them over to y'all.
  9. Well, I'm certainly on the fence now about buying a TI. Even though I love Bill Cosby, who was the best father figure a kid could want
  10. This is appropriate for a TI-99/4A forum? Shame on you.
  11. Out of curiosity, how much EE chops do you have? I don't know what level I should use when talking hardware here.
  12. *laugh* I learned a long time ago in Shenzhen: when schematics are published, the whole shebang is public domain. Keep your IP close and safe if you don't want it cloned. the original Ron Giles board and software was public domain the enhancements the Bud Mills service made where not.
  13. Well, you could try the Murata replacement for the 7805 and replace the diode to ground with a wire. That'd run the whole board at +4.3VDC, though, and I'm not sure the TTL parts on your board would like that. My testbed is 100% CMOS, so it interoperates with the rest of the system okay (the logic highs are within TTL tolerance, at least) but for the time being go with a high-current 7805 please. (the Murata datasheet has interesting disclaimers when used in a circuit like the HRD+: "The output is not intended to sink appreciable reverse current", for example
