  1. Aw man thats crap! Well let me know if you get stuck but want one. I'm in UK. You could ship to me and I'll forward it on if you don't find a better option.
  2. Guys, Does anyone know any companies or individuals that make new replacement cases for the ST/TT/Falcon range of computers?
  3. Yet another update! My NEC MultiSync LCD1970NXp arrived not much more than an hour later. Thought it would be rude not to include the differences! 1: Connected with CoolNovelties VGA cable directly 2: As you can see those lines similar to on the Dell u2412m are still present but nowhere near as noticeable. In fact the camera is making them look worse than they look in real life. 3: Retro Computer Shack RGB scart Cable connected to Flylink HD Converter and a hdmi to dvi-d adapter. This looks REALLY crispy! 4: I'm 90% satisfied with this. This monitor is pretty much bang on. The picture looked at it's sharpest upscaled to 1280x1024 at 60hz. This is a native resolution for the monitor and it's receiving it as a digital signal so you can't adjust the position. Got the RGB set to sRGB here. Very bright, very colourful. If not for that damn lag. It's only small but it's there!
  4. Which monitor are you using? Are you using an upscaler or line doubler?
  5. S-Video is your cleanest best bet. I would recommend Retro Computer Shack. They sell on eBay and have a site https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250925966106
  6. Forgot to show medium res mode. Not quite as clean as mdivancic's. Also I forgot to mention a slight caveat with the HD video converter. There is a 'slight' but noticeable lag. I didn't realise until after the other post.
  7. They are the ultimate. And I'm overdue to pick one up, but boy oh boy they're dear!
  8. Hi Folks, Updates as promised. While I'm waiting for my centuriontech.eu via adapter to arrive, I thought I'd try a different approach with a popular adapter I've seen doing the rounds on youtube. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00W9DJMNC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's "branded" Flylink and is just called HD video converter. Takes RGB or composite (or hdmi) as an input and hdmi/co-axial and separate audio outputs. The results are IMPRESSIVE! *** update: there is a slight bit of lag on the connection *** https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06WVSLSP3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Obviously my monitor didn't have hdmi inputs so I bought these digital dvi converters. Some audio interference lines but I think that might just be my messy setup and a really long budget cdmi lead that I'm using. The device itself with a Retro Computer Shack RGB Smart lead. I only use these guys for cables. This picture really doesn't do the output justice. Those diagonal lines aren't visible to the eye. Honestly guys. I will send updates when the centurion tech ube adapter turns up because obviously it's switchable to hi-res and I want to compare results. But this setup now, I'm very pleased with! I might buy a couple more to be honest! It's a great solution for connecting anything composite/RGB to a modern display! Tell me your thoughts.
  9. You've clearly done lot's of research into this. I'm interested in anything you have time to show to be honest. I'm happy to return the favour when this adapters arrive. Although it has to be said, my instincts are telling me the best result will be from my trusty RGB smart cable and an OSSC.
  10. I notice even yours Robson, has faint lines. Why is it we can't get that absolutely flawless picture? I've got an RGB scarf cable and I think the picture on a crt looks better! Maybe pair that with an OSSC.
  11. Where did you buy that? (realised yours is the ubeswitch) I've found a couple with wildly different prices: https://www.ataristsales.co.uk/shop/parts-and-spares/atari-st-parts-and-spares/atari-st-custom-upgrades/ubeswitch-mk6-v1-3-video-sound-adaptor-atari-st-computer-din-vga-colour-and-high-res-mono/ https://centuriontech.eu/product/st2vga-r4/ I've ordered the centurion tech one. I'l get back to you guys with the results when it arrives. Apparently it's on back order. £60 for the ubeswitch seemed a bit steep by comparison.
  12. Thanks for getting back so fast! Really appreciate it. I've tried altering all the settings on the monitor. Can't get rid of these ugly lines
  13. Guys, I really hope you learned clever clogs can help. I bought the vga cable from coolnovelties and I'm running a Dell u2412m. Arguably amongst the best monitors that still support 15Khz. Problem is when playing games I get these horrible lines in the image. Any thoughts as to why? I've tried another monitor and have the same issue. (identical monitor) I'm wondering if the cable is just sub-par?
