  1. Bad/Old caps strike again! Argh!
  2. That is generally untrue. The Orc-90cc program pak could access disk files. It worked with a multi-pak or a y-cable. The main feature of a multi-pak is switching the SCS and CTS signals of the Color Computer expansion to one (and only one) of the ports. This allows the programmer to choose which slot will receive those signals. Also, importantly SCS and CTS are switched independently. For example, the Orc-90cc sets the SCS signal to slot 4, thus allowing access to the floppy disk controller. It also keeps the CTS signal in the current slot so it's ROM remains active.

    I don't have the converter box you link to, but I do connect my s-video Atari 2600 to my HDTV using this box: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011406&p_id=5971&seq=1&format=2 And I really like it.
  4. Is this the one you bought: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=9994 You mention the picture quality. Do you notice any latency while game playing?
  5. The Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer can control the motor of the Cassette recorder. It could also switch the tape audio to the television speaker. I remember some Disney titles that would show an image on the screen, play some audio, then load the next image. The Intellivision Keyboard Component had an even more complicated setup. That system used all four track of a standard tape drive. One track for playing audio, another for recording audio, a third for outputting data and one for recording data. There was a "Learn French" title the let you hear a person speak a word, then you would record yourself saying the same word, then it would replay what you spoke.
