New video upgrade coming soon!

Recommended Posts

Bryan, i would be keen on 3 full boards in the future all PAL, 1 x 800xl, 1 x 65xe & 1 x 130xe shipped to the uk- happy to wait though.

 

Thanks in advance...

I would like to put myself in for one, please. This is for the Atari 400.

Worth noting how awesome this will be, as my stock 400 only has RF out.

When I gain composite+svideo, I will have a better location to keep the 400.

 

 

Is this (above) the correct protocol to get in line for this board?

Or is the next batch going straight to the store (should I just keep reloading my browser on the store, until they arrive? :-)

Anyone buying one of these for a 400 is in for a real treat, the hardest part will be routing out the wiring through the shield.

 

That's what drills are for!

That's why I said the hardest part. Trust me I've run plenty of video upgrade cabling for 400s. This upgrade is definitely the easiest I've used though.

I have a 65XE with possibly the most awful video I ever saw on an 8 Bit Atari, so I'd be interested in 1, possibly 2 of these for PAL.

 

Do you have any idea of cost as yet?

Hi,

 

having read the installation post I'd need to change my (pre-)order as follows:

 

2 full boards

2 basic kits (boards with all components)

 

Thanks!

The 800 must use the Basic board, so there's no jumpers. The 800XL/XE picture is used for the 130XE.

So my order should be good if I am reading everything correctly. Am I right?

I will update everyone very soon. Just had a few days from hell and realized I was shipped a bunch of wrong parts. Looking for quick replacements.

Take your time, man. No worries. These machines are three decades old more or less. Things can wait. Personally I won't even have time to work on mine for a couple weeks at least anyway.

The complicated thing about all this is that I live most of the year in Costa Rica, and do most of the assembly work when I visit family the US. It's too expensive (duties and shipping) to send everything I need to Costa Rica, plus who knows what would happen if I went through security with too much electronics.

 

So.... I hunt for good deals on parts and have them sent to my dad's place. I got here and prepared to finish assembling a batch of boards and realized I'd been sent wrong parts. So, I'm trying to make sure I can what I need in time to get them out on time without losing too much money.

 

Plus, I fell and skinned the top of my head off as I was packing for the airport and my wife's laptop just took a dump and she's got some work to finish. So, hopefully I'll get everything sorted out soon and start shipping next week.

Hi Bryan - if I didn't make it clear before I would still like two, one bare board for a 4-Switch 2600 and one complete kit for a socketed XL machine (it will either be my usual 800XL or my "beast" 1200XL if I can get my U1MB to be stable there). Thanks!

The assembled kit (Plug in board) or Basic board plus parts kit?

Do you want to keep all the shields in place?

Bump for Information about payment and date..

I've shipped 18 orders so far, and I'll be sending out a new batch of PM's within the week.
