New Commodore 128 for 64 case

Recommended Posts

No one to my knowledge had verified whether the RGB is converted to monochrome or if the colors are output to s-video. Monochrome would be easier of course, but color is not that difficult.

The issue was if you have a monitor setup that somehow displays RGB but not S-Video (or don't trust the quality of the onboard conversion from RGBI to S-Video), and thus would need to make modifications. If you're fine with the video outputs the manufacturer offers, no further mods will be required.

 

Yes that is a good point. I still have a working 1902 (for RGBI) that I will keep for my real 128, but I've been using a Sony PVM (s-video) with my 64 for a while. I'm looking forward to reclaiming some desk space by having 1 good quality monitor for my 64 and 128.

 

For those who don't currently have an RGBI monitor for the 128, I think we should wait and see how good or bad the 80 column on s-video looks before we condemn the The 128 Remastered.

 

I guess we shall see in Q3 2019.

What need, exactly, does this unit fulfill?

The need to build what the designer wants. It's certainly not a mass market product like the c64mini.

I guess the project is not going forward. My pre-order was refunded and now the website is in maintenance mode. No real communication other than the refund ;)
