DIN - 8 pin female / panel mount SD-80LS (Digikey).  <--I use DIN 8 connector as its what the Videopac consoles use.  This part number for for a panel mount DIN 8 that fits nice on O2/G7000 console.

 

SWI15-12-N-P5  <-replacement O2 power supply - order from Digikey

 

EDAC 307-030-520-208 <--O2 cartridge connector, uses 4-40 screws - order from Mouser

 

B82144F2123K000 <-- L3 replacement for O2 - order from Digikey

 

Male SCART connector (console5.com)

 

 

Install directions

Mod install difficulty is 5 out of 10.

 

1) Open O2

2) Remove RF adapter and cable as this will no longer be used. - Assumes you want RGB only.

3) You can place RGB adapter in the old RF area, see photo below.

 

4) You would separate 9 wires on the INPUT ribbon cable.  Trim them back 1/4 inch and tin them with solder.  Then add solder to 612160 IC pins on the O2.  Then trim tinned wires to about 1/8 inch and solder the ribbon cable to the pins below.

 

5) Drill 18mm hole in lower right area (facing back of console) with step drill bit, see photo below.  DIN-8 goes here.

 

6) You would separate 6 wires on the OUTPUT ribbon cable.  Trim them back 1/4 inch and tin them with solder.  These are soldered to the DIN-8 connector, see photo for what color ribbon cable goes to what pin the DIN-8.  Trim the tinned wires to about 1/8 inch and solder to DIN-8.

 

7) Put O2 back together and connect to RGB upscaler or RGB TV that has Euro SCART connector on it.

 

Done

 

Inputs to RGB PCB 2x5 / 10 pin IDC header

 

Best to use IC1/612160 for the inputs, except for audio.

 

IDC Pin 1 / VCC +5v / 612160 Pin 1

IDC Pin 2 / Composite Sync - 612160 pin 8 or P8244 pin 5

IDC Pin 3 / Blank - 612160 pin 9

IDC Pin 4 / Red - 612160 pin 10 or P8244 pin 18

IDC Pin 5 / Luma - 612160 pin 11 - Labeled VID on rev 2 and LUM on rev 2a pcb

IDC Pin 6 / Blue - 612160 pin 12 or P8244 pin 20

IDC Pin 7 / Green - 612160 pin 13 or P8244 pin 19
IDC Pin 8 / Audio - P8244 pin 27

IDC Pin 9 / GND / 612160 Pin 15 or 16

IDC Pin 10 / GND - Normally not connected (SPARE)

 

Outputs from RGB PCB towards DIN 8 connector.  I now match the ribbon cable colors.  So you can use the drawing of the SD-80LS for soldering guide.


IDC Pin 1 = RED
IDC pin 2 = GRN / Green
IDC Pin 3 = BLU / Blue
IDC Pin 4 = SC / Composite Sync
IDC Pin 5 = AUD / Audio
IDC Pin 6 = SR / Status RGB - not used for XRGB
IDC Pin 7 = NC - no connection
IDC Pin 8 = NC - no connection
IDC Pin 9 = GND
IDC Pin 10 = GND - Normally not connected (SPARE)

Hey Grips! 

 

I would like to MOD my N60 with an RGB kit, and would like to check with you if this challenge is feasible. 

 

Inside the N60, there is a C52 board (see attached photo), which in principle can also be RGB modded (see: http://blog.eihis.com/2012/12/14/videopac-c-52-the-scart-way-rgb-peritel-mod/

 

So I wonder if: (1) is your kit compatible with the C52 board? (2) can you think of anything else that would prevent me from modding my N60? 

 

Thanks in advance! 

Tony

If anyone is curious, the video quality using this board is fantastic! Much better than you would ever get from RF or a composite mod.

 

A video I made running RGB from my O2 through an OSSC:

Up near the Odyssey 2 logo the gray is faded due to rubbing.  Adding db9 ports to console today.

O2 console has (2) db9 joystick ports added to the front, Atari 2600 pinout.  Cartridge connector is slightly out of position, but cartridges fit in perfect as the O2's cartridge opening more than accounts for this. Also tested with Voice Module and that fits and works great too.  Voice module not included.  Has one replacement rubber foot, see photo.
