  1. Evening guys, I originally had a broadcast signal converter that I could plug all my 8 and 16 bit'ers into and fed nicely into the VGA port on a 25" Philips monitor but unfortunately DHL in my local country have made sure I'm never going to get it back after sending it for repair. The signal converter allowed lots of different resolutions and aspect ratios and was virtually limitless in the signals it would accept. Here in Ecuador there are a huge amount of 15-17" CRT's and LCD's and virtually nothing with S-Video inputs or that will accept happily the PAL composite video that my 800XL is knocking out. I have tried a $20 S-Video/Composite to VGA converter which gave me nice multicoloured blurred text on everything that I plugged into it (including a Raspberry Pi). So I'm looking to connect to VGA, especially as I still prefer the look of CRT's for my vintage machines. So, rather than going UAV now, I'm looking at getting a Sophia Board. I've tried reading through the Sophia threads but struggling to get a clear answer to some queries before I start hassling Simius with an order. I could do with hearing some experiences of other users findings. Firstly, the Sophia Rev.B is shown as RGB. Is this directly compatible with VGA or would it feed into one of the Arcade RGB to VGA GBS8200 converters found on Ebay? I ask about this board in particular because I'm getting one for an Amstrad CPC 6128 and could probably build a switch to shift between the tow machines. Secondly, regardless of this going VGA directly, or through an RGB converter, do I need to determine the resolution when I order the Sophia? Some of the monitors here are 1024 x768 and others 1280x1024. Are these the correct aspect ratios to be as similar as possible to old CRT TV's that the Atari's would have plugged into originally? Thirdly, if I end up having to order the DVI version, presumably there's a 1280x1024 option available, will I get black bars on the left and right of my full HD monitor to keep the aspect ratio or is it more likely to stretch to the whole screen or black borders on all sides with a tiny image in the middle? Lastly, is Simius based in Europe, or in the US, as I need to find out the best method of getting it to me without using couriers? USPS tracked service is ideal, but if it's coming from Europe then I'd need to get it shipped to the UK first to be forwarded by Royal Mail. Apologies for the long post and multiple questions. If you've any further advice or help to offer (unused Sophia Board??) please let me know, and thank you in advance.

  3. Just an fyi (and maybe this has already been discovered), but I picked up one of these Super Video To VGA Converter With External Cable TV Tuner 1920x1200 Pixels in an attempt to connect my 2600 to the VGA port on my projector (also tried an LCD tv). No good. The Composite out worked better but still not good. I really don't want to mod my 2600 in order to get it to work with my projector but maybe that's the only way. http://www.ambery.com/suvitosxcosw.html
  4. NOTE: THIS GUIDE IS NOT YET COMPLETE IN THIS ONE POST! THERE IS PLENTY MORE TO KNOW AND I'M JUST GETTING STARTED! CHECK BACK IN LATER POSTS FOR MORE INFO! Hello AtariaAge! This is a guide I've wanted to put together for a while about getting the best possible image (and audio!) quality from all of your retro consoles, including Nintendo, Atari, Sega, Sony, Microsoft, and even other consoles like the Colecovision, TG-16/PCE, Neo Geo, and Intellivision! IMHO one of the coolest things about collecting games today is the fact that we can experience them better now than we did years ago with the new technology available to consumers via the magic of the internet. If you've ever wanted to make your games look amazing on real hardware, this is the guide for you! Check out this comparison! It is truly stunning to see. For starters, you need to understand the issue non-HD consoles present: to plug into the largest amount of standard consumer televisions, all consoles from the Atari 2600 all the way until the Wii were packaged with either a Coaxial RF (Radio Frequency) cable or composite RCA cables. These pack all of the audio and video into one and three cables respectively. The video is condensed and is ruined before it even reaches your TV. However, with the power of better cables many systems can output superior quality right out of the box! Take the SNES (non-mini) for example. It can output a superior Video signal! Check out this comparison! It is even more stunning in person! However, the SNES can still do even better! RGB is a video signal that carries the video and audio over even more pins than S Video, separating the red, green, and blue parts of the image. Most RGB signals are carried over SCART cables, which were popular in Europe but never available in the USA: Here it is! The glory of RGB! However, you may have already noticed an issue here: even if your console does output a superior signal like S Video, RGB, Component, or VGA, how do you display it? Like I said no American TVs had SCART inputs ever. Also, what about systems that don't output anything anything above RF, let alone RGB, like the Atari 2600 and ColecoVision? Don't worry, there's much more to come very soon! This is just a teaser post for anyone who hasn't been lucky enough to see the glory of RGB and retro consoles looking their best.

  6. First, I know there are multiple pin outs & signal types (outputting different MHz & resolutions I believe?) for VGA. What type of signal does the cat box & similar devices output, and can this signal be used on older monitors... or more modern 15 pin VGA inputs only? I'm in the US & am exploring ways to get VGA out of the Jag & the types of compatible monitors. Not really all that interested in expensive SCART to component converters before that's mentioned. I have a TV that accepts VGA & would like to know what type of older CRT VGA monitors I can use. I know simple pin adapters (15 pin to "xx" pin) doesn't necessarily mean the monitor can run the signal. Recommendations for Atari monitors that work with Jag welcome! Basically... if I'm out at flea markets, hunting old PC monitors & TVs with VGA, what will work & what are my means to do so? THANKS!!!
  7. I found this on nintendoage: http://vintage.nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?StartRow=1&catid=5&threadid=157265 Someone bought an Atari 800 Super Pacman "prototype" from Best Electronics and VGA graded it as an actual prototype. He got it back from VGA and is now attempting to sell the graded "prototype" on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1984-ATARI-800-XL-XE-SUPER-PAC-MAN-PROTOTYPE-GAME-CARTRIDGE-VGA-NG-CERTIFICATE-/141834394587 Pretty sure the "protos" Best sells are repros, but I wanted to hear it from the Atari experts first. If VGA indeed graded a repro as an authentic prototype, this is a serious blow to their credibility as a company.
  8. Hi! I have a question about the Sega Dreamcast's VGA and RGB output, specifically the Toro VGA box. The reviews I have read and Behrbros official site say that using the built in option to change RGBhv Sync to RGBs Sync can allow the VGA box to be used with upscales like the XRGB Mini. Does this just refer to 240p/480i RGB output, or is there a way to access 480p via RGBs to output to a device like the XRGB Mini? Does the Mini accept VGA somehow with an adapter as long as the VGA has been converted to RGBs Sync, or can 480p be outputted via SCART/JP21? If anyone can shine light on whether this hv to s sync conversion is just for 240p and 480i or also for 480p and an upscaler it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
