I've been so close to buying a MiST for the past couple of months, but the VGA-only keeps scaring me away. I do have an Acer monitor that has VGA in (as well as DVI and HDMI) but I have no idea if it can support the output from the MiST. Naturally, the Amiga, ST, and C64 are best played in PAL 50Hz mode, but I've read that most VGA screens can only do a minimum of 56 Hz. Does this mean that at best, games would run ever so slightly too fast? Or, if my monitor can only manage 60 Hz, then I'd be stuck playing Amiga and ST in NTSC mode and the games would be totally too fast. I've seen the MiSTer board that has HDMI, but that isn't sold by anyone and I'm not sure if it has real joystick ports which is a big reason I'd like a MiST. Should I just sit out the FPGA scene until there's some kind of HDMI solution? I don't want to shell out the dough for a MiST and end up not being able to use it.
I was reading up on the MiST over lunch and was wondering if this remarkable device can run Spartados/X when the atari800 core is loaded? I've been unable to find anything online to confirm or deny this. Has anybody tried this? If it does work, can a partition (disk image) of a few Mb be mounted and used (read/write)? I don't own a MiST so I can't try it myself, or at least not yet. I'm asking because this might influence whether I order one or not. Jeremy
