Re: Atari ST confirmed working with RGBtoHDMI Pi project

the GST Shifter on STe is in a really awkward position, underneath the PSU. Like 2-3 mm free space on top of it. So making a solderless solution will be a challenge for sure. It would be easier on the STE to pick up RGB off the resistors right next to the shifter, as those are not SMT. It may even ...

Re: My summer project: A colour Stacy

That LCD screen I played around with from those earlier posts when I was playing around with a color screen also got a little toasty. After leaving it on for 4-5 hours or so, you could feel the warmth through the lid. In my case, almost all the heat is coming from the LVDS controller board. The pan...

Re: My summer project: A colour Stacy

Finally time to find out how warm this thing gets with the lid mostly reassembled (the back is in place, but not snapped shut)... screentemp.jpeg Yes, that's what the inside of my head looks like, too. :? I noticed when I first started work on this that the LCD controller board's processor gets pret...

Re: Atari ST confirmed working with RGBtoHDMI Pi project

Led D1 flashing means it's acquiring 'genlock' i.e. sync mismatch between the input/ST and the monitor. It should stay solid when it's locked. Ah, sure. Come to think of it, I think I knew that once. ;) In this particular setup, nothing has been fine tuned yet, so the monitor is running at 60 Hz an...

Re: Atari ST confirmed working with RGBtoHDMI Pi project

Cheers @DoG by the way my RGBtoHDMI's light is always flashing when in mono mode, do you know why? I tried auto calibrating it but it didn't make a difference. The picture is fine though. Now that I've got one back up and running myself, I can confirm that D1 is flashing all the time, in both colou...

Re: My summer project: A colour Stacy

Will it be lighter or heavier than originally? I haven't really pondered that. I'm guessing lighter, because the switcher board and Lightning+Cloudy+Storm probably weigh something close to what the old PSU weighed, but the RGB2HDMI and CosmosEx almost certainly weigh less than the old SCSI drive+co...

Re: My summer project: A colour Stacy

Over the past few days, I have mostly completed replacing the OSSC with a RGB2HDMI, which seems to be a better solution for this setup, in particular because of its greater flexibility in scaling the output to match the partially-masked LCD screen. That's a lot harder to do well in the analogue doma...

Re: First time I've had a fire in the woods in over a year...

How are you guys quoting specific bits of text? I've tried that and it puts in the actual word quote. Just use the quotation mark button to reply with a quote of the original post, then edit down the quoted text in the editor. For example in this reply, this is what I get by default when I quote: [...

Sorry for over stepping boundaries.
Sometimes that's the easiest way to find them. As they say, "it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission." :lol:

Re: Atari ST confirmed working with RGBtoHDMI Pi project

So, about $65-$70 USD. That's not too bad. It won't do me any good in it's current iteration though. I guess I'll just have to wait and hope they eventually come up with something for the STE models. It looks great! I don't see any reason it shouldn't work with the STE. It is capable of accepting 1...
