I wanted to create a cable to connect my Amigas to my Atari SC1224 color monitor. I found a few forum posts on the issue: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=80003 http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=30991 http://atariage.com/forums/topic/189852-how-to-find-a-good-amiga-500/ But nothing with the actual schematic. It should be straightforward, but the poster in the English Amiga Board post stated he was having problems, and someone suggested taping the CSYNC line instead. Anyway, I made a cable with a simple RGBHV and GND connection from the Amiga to the SC1224 and it works beautifully. I added audio too by tying left and right audio together and feeding them to pin 1 of the Atari monitor. Here is the schematic: And here are some results: I figured I would add this here for anyone else wondering if there is some weird magic to connecting an SC1224 to an Amiga. There isn't. The only surprise was that the original Amiga RGB video cable I tried to use as a donor does not carry HSYNC and VSYNC at all. I has to sacrifice an Amigakit RGB to SCART cable in the end too. So far at least though it works great and looks beautiful. Graham
Picked up an Atari 1040 STe with a SC1224 Color monitor used (craigslist) for a good price. It has been working all fine and dandy except a couple odd issues. The volume knob is Glitchy in that it only sometimes works and the sound will cut out and after about 20 minutes of usage.. The thing just REEKS!!! as in the entire apartment smells like "stale burnt popcorn" as someone in the chat room so eloquently suggested. This really makes me sad the monitor is a cute little thing and I wanted to enjoy it for long periods of time without worry. The smell is so strong that even after opening a window with a fan on the highest setting blowing on it, it is still lingering there. I'm getting worried the damn thing might even explode so it can't be too safe to use plus the smell is causing me migraine headaches.
Just posted my Atari 520ST on line complete with everything. Had a few problems with the hard drive which either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Kept getting the infamous Drive A not readable error but evrything else is working. Check it out at: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 220891143364
The Red "gun" on my SC1224, leaving me only the GB of the RGB. Luckily someone I've purchased from in the past has an SC1435 available that I'll pick up tomorrow. which leaves the question of what to do with this SC1224. Being the old fart that I am, I remember the days of Tube TV's where everything was repairable, but I'm not so sure about 80's/90's era CRT VDT's. I also hate to see an Atari monitor end up in electronics recycling, since there are likely so few of them left now, 30 years after their manufacture. So if there is someone in the Toronto area (I have no intention of shipping it anywhere). that would like it for parts or repair, and is willing to pick it up (Bathurst/Eglinton), it's yours for the outrageous price of $0 (plus 15 % tax) If I don't get a reply to this or a PM within the next week, it's being put out on electronics-waste pick up day. I'm only posting this on Atariage,
