Re: Atom to gonbes gbs8200

It'll be mono out of the atom, so won't look too bad (it looks pretty bad normally!), but if you have a monitor that takes composite then you'll be fine.

Re: Atom to gonbes gbs8200

I've seen the same thing - in fact I just tested it: If you do a seach for something like "serial port" it will return several pages of results. As you click on some of the later pages (like page 4) it will say I can't search for 'x' seconds - but I haven't done a new search! I've just tr...

Re: Suspect ATMEL AT28C256 marked EEPROMs

All the fake ones I've seen have that date code. Some are missing the "pin 1" dimple too, even though the arrow points there. I have had a couple that work fine on my programmer, then completely misbehaves when I plug it into my EUP :(

duikkie - do you have some nailvarnish remover? (Acetone)? See if you can rub the markings off (and also have a go on the underside and see if there's a manufacturing code underneath?)

Yes - if you've done a search, then it will make you wait before doing another (it's to stop bots overloading the server).

Re: How best to connect Electron to a display screen?

TV. A modern monitor won't sync with it without a scan rate converter. Three options (don't bother with the UHF tuner): 1) Composite out in B&W 2) Open up the electron, make link 4 (LK4) on the motherboard, and you'll have colour composite 3) (best option), get, or make, a BBC Micro RGB to SCART...

Server Updates

Just to forewarn - I'm going to kick the server over with some OS updates a bit later. The forums will probably go up and down a couple of times. If you're writing a big post I'd recommend doing writing it in notepad ready to cut and paste in just in case you get caught by a reboot.
