  1. Hello, I hope you can help! I have installed an s-video mod board from here to my pal, black label Atari jr. When I boot a game the picture looks clean and bright for about 12 seconds, before turning very dim and losing colour. The game plays fine, and there is no issues with sound, just really dark after 12 seconds. So far I have checked all my soldering for continuity, pins 9 and 13 are lifted, the bottom of the mod board is taped, and there are no visual signs of bad capacitors (my initial thoughts). Any ideas what could be going wrong or what I should check next?
  2. I'm gauging interest for two new AV adapters I'm making due out sometime in November. I'd like to have a good idea for how many to make before launching, so I'm posting here. Each product page has a simple email signup form. if you're interested, please signup! The first is a simple S-Video, Stereo Audio, Composite video adapter. This adapter will only need the AV socket and will run $25 (plus shipping). https://www.humblebazooka.com/product/jagsvc-atari-jaguar-s-video-composite-video-adapter/ The second is an All-In-One Analog adapter with RGB (9-pin socket, Genesis Model 2 style), Stereo Audio, Composite, and S-Video. This adapter will require both Jag sockets, DSP for power, but will benefit from being able to work with the Rad2X without external power. No definitive price yet but tentative at $35 (plus shipping). Those looking to use a JagNet, JagLink, JagLink II can always pick up a Jag2GEN or the S-Video adapter, since both only use the AV socket. This adapter will have its sync line brought down to Genesis Model 2 levels so that Genesis Model 2 SCART cables wired for CSYNC will work as intended. https://www.humblebazooka.com/product/jagaioa-atari-jaguar-all-in-one-analog/

  4. Hi All After taking a break from Atari for a year or so, im happy to offer a new product to the community which may be of interest, Im pleased to offer a S-video card which i have designed and optimised for CRT monitors, which has excellent quality video compaired to Composite and of course standard TV/Coax. The card is compatible with both NTSC and PAL Ataris and comes pre-wired and with Full color instructions and fittings. Both 7800 and TIA output is catered for and there is an adjustment pot for quality can be adjusted to ensure best results for your monitor. I have listed the features/parts here: Features: * 7800 & 2600 TIA compatible * Works on PAL and NTSC units * Sound Filter * Onboard adjustment for sharpening results * Easy Install with Step-by-Step color photos (separate sections for both PAL and NTSC) Kit Includes: * S-Video Module card - pre-wired and color coded * 4 Pin S-Video DIn Socket (for fitting to side if desired) * RCA Socket - for Audio output * Link wires * Easy Install Instructions with colour photos showing step by step from start to Finish. As some new LCD monitors may vary, im pitching this to be used for CRT monitors as to both ensure compatibility and also to keep the original feel of the 7800. Some shots ive taken are: PAL - Xenophobe, Sirius, Choplifter NTSC - Intro screen, Winter Games, Plutos. Im sure you will agree that although composite is a good departure from standard TV, the quality that the 7800 can give out is worth the effort! Ive listed these on Ebay here for general release and what the cost/rates are. UK - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121596931289?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 ROW - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-7800-S-Video-Card-PAL-NTSC-complete-with-parts-and-instructions-/121596931289?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item1c4fbdecd9 Please let me know if you have any questions or feel free to PM me if you are interested but dont use ebay etc. Richard
  5. I have a really stupid/brilliant idea, basically I want to put a retrotink 2x mini inside an s-video modded Atari 2600 Vader. The idea is to keep the console bone stock looking, with the only visual difference being an HDMI cable instead of an RF cable coming out of the back. I should be able to get +5v off the 7805 to power the 2x, but have no doubt it will burn it out quickly if I do. Can someone recommend a dc/dc converter that is a drop in replacement for the 7805 regulator, preferably with a little extra available amperage? On a side note, can I just remove the RF modulator? It looks like a great place to mount the retrotink, but I don’t know if it’s tied into anything.
  6. I have a 7800 with a friend and he's having a helluva time finding a S-Video mod kit for my 7800. Are these available anywhere? To my knowledge it's still the easier way to get a really sharp picture out of a 7800. I haven't heard of anyone RGB modding or HDMI modding them....but maybe i'm out of the loop. There are an abundance of AV mod kits, but once you've seen that crisp clear S-Video picture on a CRT it's really a standard you try to maintain. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or are they just not being made currently? If so, what is the alternative or replacement or next mod/standard that has come along? Thanks so much for any insight on this predicament as the guy who modded my first 7800 (Electronic Sentimentalities) has since retired.
  7. Hey All. I've been working with a well known custom PCB maker from Sudomod (Minty Pi and Gameboy Zero stuff) named Helder Silva on developing my idea of an adapter that takes the Jag's AV port and converts it to the more common Nintendo Multiout. I chose the Multiout because it carries all the audio video signals needed for composite, s-video, and even RGB all in one port. I wanted to share some footage I took last night of me playing some Jag games with an HD Retrovision component cable upscaled through an OSSC using the final version of the adapter. I recorded this footage using a $20 capture device from Amazon so it's not the highest quality and it introduced lag, which you can see me struggle with in Alien vs Predator and Cybermorph but it get's the job done! What the JAG2SNES does: Converts the Jag's AV port to the more common Multiout port. Allows you to use SNES/N64/GameCube: Composite, S-Video, RGB Scart, and HD Retrovision (what I use) cables with your Jag. What this JAG2SNES doesn't do: Upscale. You'll need a scan converter like the OSSC, Framemeister, or GBS for that. If all goes well, it should go on sale sometime today for $25 USD (plus shipping) over at Helder's website and they'll be ready to ship immediately, no waiting list and no lead time to build. They are built. I will post to the buy, sell, trade forums once it's live.
  8. We're moving and downsizing, and I can't justify a dedicated gaming television any more This TV has great picture and solid Stereo sound. Only stopped using it as our regular TV when cable went fully digital. Fantastic TV for using with classic consoles, can connect multiple ones to it. Swivel stand, includes working (generic) remote. Inputs include S-Video, composite and cable, and also has outputs for recording or capture and cable pass-through. It's available for free! but pick up only in the Chicago-land area (Algonquin, IL 60102) as shipping costs would be prohibitive. It's the perfect showcase for your classic games!
  9. Hey everyone! I have the following for sale: Saturn (model 1) Alien Trilogy (disc only) 2 controllers,(one has the cable repaired) Saturn Action Replay 4M Plus, black S-video/composite cable A/V to SCART RF TV box $110 plus shipping. Please feel free to PM me with questions or comments. Thanks for looking!
  10. I picked up an 800XL in fantastic condition and added an Antonia CPU/RAM upgrade. Sold it to a friend of mine, and then ended up getting it back :-) It has pretty fuzzy video though. According to this post: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/198754-current-best-s-video-picture-improvement-mod-for-800xl/ I'm going to I'm skipping step 2, as no banding is present; it's just REALLY fuzzy and currently s-video outputs black and white only. My soldering skill are improving, and I've a shiny new solder station arriving on my day off. I guess I could easily do this with just schematics, but ... It would be greatly appreciated if someone has pics of these simple finished steps (I like pictorial verification, because I'm pretty new at this stuff still). Any other advice on what to do while I'm in there? Besides the Antonia, all my other work has been on XE models. I put a UAV in my 130XE and if this doesn't work out, I'll probably buy another for the 800XL. Thanks, Thomas
  11. This is just an interest check. I have the following modified Atari 7800 system and 16 games. What would they be worth as one lot? Would anyone want to buy these as a lot? If so, how much would one be willing to pay for the following as a bundle? Suggestions? Comments? Asteroids Ballblazer Barnyard Blaster Centipede Dig Dug Donkey Kong Jr. F-18 Hornet Galaga Jinks Joust Karateka Meltdown Ms. Pac-man Robotron 2084 Tower Toppler Xevious I had this system modded for s-video and composite stereo audio. I have the 7800 gamepad. I have the joystick as well.
  12. hi all whats the best s-video /picture improvement for a pal 800xl please? googling usually brings this one up (ultra video) http://www.atari8.co.uk/downloads/UltraVideo%20XL%201.0.pdf has anyone here done it and can report its the best current option? looking at the schematic seems to bring up a couple questions re how well it will actually work, so please if anyone can pitch in with links or confirmation, that'd be appreciated. it needs to be a simple and reliable mod, cheap, standard (no vxbe etc) just s-video and any simple improvements as ultra video suggests cheers! Iain
  13. Hi all, I bought this s-video cable for my Atari Jaguar and did a fairly quick test with Doom on one of my TV's. What am I supposed to expect? I had to change the contrast on my TV since I could barely see anything on Doom. Then it was fine and it did look better. How dark is Doom supposed to be? The red was bleeding off a little bit. Is there a better s-video cable than this or is this the best one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/171281346550?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 cheers, Yan

  17. Hi, everyone. I completed the Saundby S-Video mod on my 7800. I now have it plugged into my LCD screen. I know my choice of TV could be the problem, but before I go find a CRT, I figured it was worth posting my problem here in case anyone has a quick answer. The video is wavy, particularly noticeable at the edges of lightly colored objects. Here's a YouTube video of the problem. https://youtu.be/dcwT4k0Y16U Any ideas? Thank you!
  18. Like so. My Atari 2600 had really bad RF out. Way 'snowier' than normal so I figured it was probably just the RF circuit so why not mod it. Results are striking. Well worth the effort (",) It uses a 'daughterboard' that someone local to me gave me to try out. You can see it in the second pic, sitting next to the original RF unit, just above where the original coax connected o the motherboard. My model had the coax permanently attached. I used an old cable I had lying around, but I have ordered an aftermarket gamecube s-video cable. This has a round cross section. It will be thicker than the original but will still look the part, and it means I don;t have to do any drilling
  19. This adapter was made to breakout the Atari Jaguar’s many video outputs to a more common and easily found set of cables the SNES Cables to allow you to play your classic games in better quality especially compared to the standard RF Audio/Video output. The RF output is very blurry and noisy out from the 90’s that is not a standard supported today. This adapter works great when paired with RGB Scart or HD Retrovision cables and run through a upscaler like the OSSC, RetroTink, or GBS! Features: Fits the back of the Jaguar without obstructing the Serial IO Link (DSP Port) Custom 3D enclosure designed by me Hand painted lettering on 3D enclosure to make it pop and match the Jaguar colors All SNES cables including official and 3rd party cables will work with this adapter Gold Plated contacts with a beveled edge for easy insertion of SNES Cables S-Video, Composite, RGB Scart, HD Retrovision Component cables all tested to work with the adapter Sync (C-Sync) has the proper filtering and attenuation to work with all upscalers Jaguar 9v regulated to 5v output for all proper RGB televisions and upscalers like the OSSC $25 USD + Shipping Purchase Here Demo video:
  20. Who has modded their 7800 and what mods did you use? Everyone knows the limits of the stock video output of the 7800 and how it leaves much to be desired. What mods have you gone with and why did you choose to mod your system.
  21. I knocked another project off the list today by finishing up my 7800 s-video mod. I also recapped it and added RCA AV jacks. I bought longhornengineer's video board on eBay and highly, highly recommend buying from them. The s-video quality is absolutely superb. It's crisp and colorful, and still glows with that original warmth. The 7800 went from being the absolute worst video quality of any console I own, to nearly the top of the list. So far I've only been able to test it plugged straight to my TV, and it will improve when I'm able to run it through my Extron DVS-204 to a T-SLG. The mono audio is also excellent, but the composite video is nowhere near as good as s-video. Both are a huge improvement over RF obviously. I mounted the AV jacks on the back of the console, which is something I hadn't seen done before. If you go this route, make sure to get the exact s-video jack that I used. There isn't enough space inside that area for standard s-video jacks.
  22. Hey guys! I want a Sega Saturn. It has to be a model 1. There aren't many stores here that sell retro gaming things. I'm not too concerned about the glossy black finish. That's okay. I don't, however, want a system with DEEP scratches or broken pieces off of it. On Hold Back up and still looking and waiting. Found!
  23. At the end of the last post I briefly mentioned you could create a Luma only cable and s-video for the Atari 8-bits. This works on any 8-bit where the Chroma & Luma are split out in the 5-pin DIN connector for the video & audio. There are some 8-bits that Atari elected NOT to separate out the Luma & Chroma unfortunately; 800XL made before August 1984, 1200XL and most 600XLs. All these computers had a single pin for just the composite connection only. There are ways to modify these computers to include chroma/luma but they all require modifying the motherboard in some form or fashion so I won't go into them here. Here is the video/audio pin-out for the Atari 8-bits. To create a luma only video cable for sharp B/W 80 column video on a composite monitor: pin 1 > video composite + on monitor pin 3 > audio + on monitor pin 2 > split to composite video - & audio - on monitor what you would do is swap the luma cable for the standard color video cable when you wanted that sharp 80 column look. This works on any un-modified Atari with the luma/chroma pins set on or modified Atari with the luma/chroma fix. If you are lucky enough to still have an s-video monitor you can create an s-video cable that can give you 80 column & color. s-video pinout. Again, you will need an Atari 8-bit where the luma & chroma pins are set on. To create an S-video cable: Atari pin1 > s-video pin 3 Atari pin 5 > s-video pin 4 Atari pin 2 > s-video pins 1 & 2 sound is separate line from Atari pin 3 & 2. If it turns out the 80-column text isn't quite sharp enough just attach Atari lines 1 & 2 which be just luma, no color. Now I haven't tested the luma only cable personally but I talked to people who have and it worked for them. As always, this is just my suggestion. I am in no way responsible for any damage you may do to your Atari. (I don't see how you could harm our Atari making these cables but where there's a will there's a way). There you have it. Have fun.
  24. Hi Heres how you can make your own top quality S-Video video board for almost any Atari 8 bit. It uses few parts and would take minutes to install. The Atari series shares the same common IC graphics chip (GTIA) and has Luma and chroma produced at a high level. Unfortunately Atari made an ass of this on the XL series (particularly the 600XL) and didnt improve much with the XE series. I produced a module that did this a few years back but thought i would make the details on how you can make your own here. Ive photographed my own for clarity, but ive some ataris with just the components hard wired on to the boards with wires, The circuit has been tested on: 400 800XL 600XL 65XE 130XE 800XE XEGs it will definitely work on 1200XL's and 800's, however the 800 has good native s-video, so it would be best to leave alone or use Jurgens 800 color board as the components needed to remove are more fiddly. Parts required: 33 Ohm resistor (any wattage - a 0.25w one is suggested) 50 ohm trimmer 16V 22uF capacitor (10uf value will work also) The circuit looks like this (both on cad and in simple layout) The layout should be similar to this: The circuit can easily be hard wired together or put on prototype board etc. The instruction on installation to your Atari can be found here (ignore the fact its a module and substitute for the board/circuit) Magic Knights XL-XE module instruction.pdf Anyone wanting to make their own PCB - heres the gerber files etc : XL s-video 1.00f_2018-12-04.zip Comments and questions welcome!

  25. Alright, so I got this really awesome 3D LED tv (Vizio Razor M3D460SR) but since it's so thin or something they combined the AV input with the Component1 plugs (green is shared with the yellow composite plug) and Component2 with the VGA input (works with a VGA to component passthrough cable and an RCA to 3.5mm stereo cable). Is there anyone with really awesome video ciruitry skills that can help devise a custom external device to combat this? Wishful thinking: A) S-Video to Component circuit - Doesn't need to upscale past 480i, but I'd like to keep the quality improvement from the S-Video connector instead of going S-Video -> RCA Composite A-2) Composite to Component if A) is possible (for 3) below) B) Some form of automatic switching between sources Realistic goals / options 1) Input 1: Component + RCA Left/Right, Input 2: VGA Computer + 3.5mm Stereo, Output: VGA connector + 3.5mm Stereo In other words, make a switch for a VGA -> Component passthrough and a normal VGA source. There's no conversion from Component to an actual VGA signal, the tv supports and has been tested with a Component to VGA cable. 2) Input: Component (Green, Blue, and Red plugs), Composite (Yellow), Output: Green, Blue, White Explanation: A switch that cuts off Red and Blue when set to Composite, Yellow gets forwarded to Green. I've got an automatic switchbox that only outputs one set of RCA audio cables for both component and composite, so that's why that's not included. 3) Assuming A): Input 1: S-Video + RCA Left/Right, Input 2: Composite + RCA Left/Right, Input 3: Component + RCA Left/Right, Input 4: VGA + 3.5mm Stereo, Output: VGA connector + 3.5mm Stereo On Input 2: Left mono to Stereo when Right In connector has no signal VGA passthrough switch as in 1) Assuming B) as well: If there is a signal on Input 4, leave it on 4 unless manually switched. If there is no signal, switch to VGA -> Component passthrough For inputs 1, 2, and 3 switch to the input that has received a signal last. ie: Input 1 is on, input 3 is turned on switch to input 3, input 2 is turned on switch to input 2. (same function as the switch box I have now)
