  1. I can confirm 3.1 works fine though Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. @dafivehole, since you're in the US, where component video is more common, one option is the use of a SCART RGB to Component Video transcoder such as this one. https://www.amazon.com/SPECIALTY-AV-SCART-Component-Converter-Genesis/dp/B004XSSDPO/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1CGJS5R64LOA3&keywords=scart+to+component+transcoder&qid=1561863079&s=gateway&sprefix=scart+to+com%2Caps%2C400&sr=8-2 Add an Atari ST SCART RGB cable, and you can have a sharp image on common displays that support component video (in particular, the 240p/480i signal though). It's what I used in the photos attached.
  3. I have had a few Commodore monitors with the faulty switch. I've bought them with packing tape, Blu-Tak and other methods to keep the switch pressed in (all of which were messy). If you don't want the expense or expertise of replacing the switch, or a messy/sticky solution, then I suggest using tile wedge spacers like these: https://www.amazon.com/QEP-10285-Tile-Wedge-Spacers/dp/B000FK1UTK?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-d-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B000FK1UTK It's cheap, clean and doesn't cause any damage. Simply pressed the power button in, and insert one of the edges between the button and its surrounding, and it will stay in. Pull the wedge out to turn off - simple!
  4. It might be worth checking this video out: https://youtu.be/JG_9W-LzWXc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have the Magic Sac Plus so reading original Mac disks will be impossible for me. I’m hoping to get a setup where I can use a virtual Mac on one side, along with disk images from a Gotek. Hopefully, conversions can be done in software against images rather than using original hardware that I don’t have. Will need to sit down and think this one through.. Btw, do you have a converted copy of the system disks? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I would recommend watching this comparison video that looks at the Framemeister, OSSC and this generic convertor. https://youtu.be/lHoOKLWIMKU I’ve tried many options and I’ve finally settled on the OSSC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I think these were in short supply at one stage but in recent months there has been a huge increase in availability (being open source, it appears someone from China is now mass producing them). I picked up a second one from eBay and the quality is as good as the one I got from the UK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I have been using this convertor for years with a Mega ST which doesn’t have a modulator. It’s the cable makes the difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Which Sofia do you have - RGB or DVI? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. For anyone who’s interested, there’s sound, sampler, clock and diagnostic cartridge options available here: http://www.gossuin.be/index.php/shop Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If you don’t need it to be resident, I recommend Qed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The Mega STs don’t have a composite video signal so this won’t work. You have the option of colour RGB 15khz output or a VGA compatible high resolution monochrome output Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Depends on the connector on your 1084S (mine has a DB9) but I’ve purchased a SCART to DB9 adapter from Cool Novelties https://coolnovelties.co.uk/coolnovelties/commodore-amiga/67-philips-cm8833-mk2-rgb-monitor-to-scart-adapter-0705693506357.html From there, any ST SCART cable will work.

  14. I use this exact model with an OSSC. Handles Line 5x mode perfectly. I agree the s-video processing is subpar (I run it through an Extron upscaler now) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. The 15khz signal they’re referring to was probably in reference to Simius’s other product, the Sophia RGB board. It outputs an analogue RGB signal at 15khz horizontal refresh. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
