    Cool - I've got a similar setup - where I'm pulling the RGB into analogue RGB and feeding it into a scart on a telly. 



    Btw, since you've got the PAL version, you can actually take the TEA out completely if you only want to use the RGB, as it's surplus to requirement (unless you are leaving the composite mod in) - the NTSC version needs the TEA to stay in situ as it drives the main Sysclock (the PAL version has a separate LS04 top left for the sysclock)

    Great setup, very nice work!

    I have a NTSC Aquarius too, in wich i made composite mod only, but it's my "boxed" (and quite new) ones, so i promised myself to not open it anymore!

    Looking at that, you aren't getting the INV line (pin 1 on the TEA / Pin 23 on PLA2) so you are only getting 8 colours, not the full 16. 


    Yes, the pic was taken at first stage of test... i connected pin 1 too and got 16 colours in HDMI:




    i also added a "composite mod" getting audio and componend from RF input and routing them to the printer port, and using a TRRD to RCA cable

    Very nice work!  I wasn't familiar with the RGBtoHDMI project that you mentioned, but I know that there is at least one dedicated Aquarius RGB upgrade in the works.  (I plan to use it with my Framemeister XRGB-Mini.)


    If you're looking for BurgerTime, the easiest place to get it is with the Virtual Aquarius distribution linked in this post.

    Thank you, i'd never think in looking for an emulator's folder!

    I red about the RGB mod, but i've now perfect hdmi output, and made a simple composite mod wiring the comp and audio signal to the "printer" 3,5 jack, in my Aquarius (a Pal one) it works without any other components, with a TRS to RCA cable.

    The only issue is some white rumour in the SND line, i've added a filter and a resistor in serial without result, i'll work on it. I've the background rumour in the microexpander output too.

  5. i used the files in Bruce's blog to make my microexpander, i'm waiting for new ch376 since the old ones works only few minutes..



    i also added an HDMI output using the RGBtoHDMI project created by stardot.uk users, and picking the digital RGBI value directly from TEA1002:



    Now... i'd like to play with Burgertime, but it seems not easy to find the .BIN file... any hint to get it (either than buy an Aquaricart)?

    There's quite a few people making boards to sell for self installation, however I won't be selling boards individually.  A friend of mine in particular (outside of AA) has a rather large batch coming from China in the next few weeks.  His prices per board will be hard for anyone else to beat.  He's been well known and well respected in the retro gaming community for years.  I'll post a thread when he has his shipment if you can wait a few more weeks. :)

    Thank you Jimmy, i'm interested and have no hurry!

    I've a TI/99, a Colecovision, some Sega SC-3000 and some MSX machines that i'd like to upgrade to rgb, so i was thinking about ordering a small batch (5 pieces is usually the minimum) from one of the chinese pcb builder, but price is usually high for theese quantities... waiting for news from you and your friends!
