Re: Today ZAP museum received....

Before it gets too hot in here, just a general reminder that vociferous discussion of computer related history and Clive's inability to make something that doesn't have an air of "bodge" about it is absolutely fine, but challenge the idea, not the person. There's absolutely no need. :)

I've had datacentre+music 500+beebopl+beebsid dangling off the 1MHz bus and it's been fine. It's what it's designed to do! :)

Re: AtoMMC on the Beeb's 1mhz bus.

Freeing up the user port is the main point here. If mmfs can be made to play with the beebscsi hardware over the 1MHz bus that would seem to be a good solution? No having to invent new hardware etc?

I've got a syncmaster that can do the same. The things that's a bit disappointing is that I've never seen a TV that'll take 15kHz through the VGA port :(

Re: Which A3010 Monitor?

Multisync is, I think, an NEC trademark. Their old CRTs would synchronise to a low enough frequency, the LCDs don't unfortunately. The key thing you're looking for is this line in the specs: Synchronization Range - Vertical 50 - 85 kHz Synchronization Range - Horizontal 31.5 - 91.1 kHz That horizont...

Re: Which A3010 Monitor?

CRT = excellent, but obviously old and bulky. LCDGameModes works for many things but sometimes doesn't and sometimes gives a slightly odd aspect ratio. A BenQ BL702A is actually a modern LCD multiscan monitor and should deal with all the A3010 resolutions. All this depends on funds, desk space and d...
