  2. Mechatronic 80 Column Card (9-pin) RGB interface to SCART/RGB plug Pin 1 = Ground to Pin 18 is Composite Input "Ground" / Sync input "Ground" Pin 2 - not used Pin 3 = Red to Pin 15 Pin 4 = Green to Pin 11 Pin 5 = Blue to Pin 7 Pin 6 - not used Pin 7 = +5V ("RGB trigger") to Pin 16 Fast Switching (if you get Black and White / Grey pictures, probably you still use Composite and it is not triggered to use RGB) See: https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/trouble-shooting-guide-for-rgb-scart-cables https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART#Blanking_and_switching Pin 8 = Synchronization TTL (Transitor Transitor Logic) to Pin 20 Composite video input / Sync. input Pin 9 - not used Audio - Need to come from the 6-DIN plug (European consoles) or 5-DIN plug (USA consoles) and need to go to 5-DIN Pin 3 Audio to Pin 2 - Audio input Right 5-DIN Pin 3 Audio to Pin 6 - Audio input Left (Combine Pin 3, as the TI-99/4A is mono audio output) https://justinpaulin.com/2014/04/21/testing-a-texas-instruments-ti-994a-without-power-or-video-cables/ Use Pin 2 = Ground to Pin 4 Audio Ground For Audio on a Europen console (DIN-6) 6-DIN Pin 5 Audio to Pin 2 - Audio input Right 6-DIN Pin 5 Audio to Pin 6 - Audio input Left (Combine Pin 3, as the TI-99/4A is mono audio output) Use Pin 6 = Ground to Pin 4 Audio Ground
  3. Today I got the Mechatronic 80 Column Card to work with a self-made RGB to SCART cable. (note: not all TV's, etc. do support RGB on their SCART interface). This was tested on a Philips 42PFL5604H/12 TV with 2x SCART/RGB interfaces: https://www.philips.ae/c-p/42PFL5604H_12/-/specifications
