Re: TT and Mega STE: check your LED brackets!

Yes, you have to get the correct sized LED if you want to do a direct replacement. The ones Atari used are 3mm diameter with 3mm hole, 5-6mm hole diameter (8mm total diameter) PVC grommets. Of course, if Atari had painted the steel we wouldn't have half the problems. Even better used grommets which ...

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

A mere 5 Atari machines (1xSTM, 2xSTFM, 1xSTE, 1xTT).

I think it's only 22 in total, including the Sun workstations.

Re: TT and Mega STE: check your LED brackets!

I had exactly the same corrosion on my brackets and it seemed to be a reaction of the rubber grommets used to hold the LED. The rubber was almost like a sticky goo when I touched it the first time and the rust seemed to start from the rubber goo. The grommets on my TT were as hard as rock. I'm gues...

TT and Mega STE: check your LED brackets!

Earlier in the week I noticed that the HD light wasn't showing so I took the HD module out and had a look. I knew it was rusty but what I hadn't rea...

Re: PhilCs blog / the latest things hes broken(fixed)

Don't tell the missus but I can finally cross another computer off the wanted list. This turned up in the post today. 20191114_205810.jpg Of course it looked a whole lot worse when it arrived.

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Of course, if you don't mind using the original hardware + SCART cable the Open Source Scan Converter does an excellent job and looks 99% as good, especially if you turn on the x2 sampling and the x2 or x4 upscaling. Still, it's not cheap itself at about £150.

Re: RTC guide?

This shouldn't affect the clock setting code though. The clock is read correctly from the UltraSATAN it's just that when it sets the clock the year is 9 years in the future when running TOS 2.06.
