Atari 800XL revision D motherboard (PAL) S-VIDEO

Recommended Posts

I could only find information for the S-VIDEO mod for revision C motherboard 

Just wondering does anybody have specific information about the S-VIDEO mod for this revision D motherboard please

 

It looks simple enough to do but wanna be sure theirs no major changes between revision C and D i need to know about

You need only snip C56 if present and solder in the chroma wire. Send it here it you want and I'll do it for you.

A 130XE is a piece of junk internally compared to an 800XL, especially an earlier rev motherboard. If you compare, say, a Hong Kong made Rev A 800XL to any 130XE, it’s like night and day: fully socketed board, none of those ridiculous factory bodge wires XEs all seem to have, no stupid clumps of capacitors soldered sloppily around the SIO port ... seriously, stick with the XL. :)

From personal experience the superpic type mods did nothing good for me on the 800XL.

 

Whether that's unique to me or a PAL thing I don't know.

 

My recommendation would be to perform the simple add wire with insulated resistor to give chroma on the monitor jack and if the output is acceptable leave it at that.

In the modern day there's better/cleaner options anyway such as UAV, Sophia and VBXE.
