Maybe lotherak could be convinced to do a proper internal ultrasatan? To him it would only be a PCB change and would only need the pcb for internal mounting.
He already has an internal UltraSatan:

Re: Need to set up new Ultrasatan SD Card

I actually had a lot of failing SD cards lately, on different machines and devices. Appearantly there is a lot of bad quality out there... I can recommend trying the "official" SD card formatter, which is able to to do something close to a low level format to reset the SD card. You can also try usin...

Re: VGA for low and medium res?

If this does not work, it might be worth a shot to get a cheap component to rgb converter (also called YUV2RGB). It is more likely, that the display will accept 15kHz there.

Re: Ordering the Alpha board

I have to admit, that I envy you guys ... I would love to play with one too. But I really would not find the time right now and I don't have a donor STFM. So I SHOULD be glad, that the last board and therefore the temptation is gone... :cry: But I keep watching and provide some cheers from time to t...

Re: Postage ship from the UK

Can't really complain about shipping from UK to Germany. It's quite fast and usually has tracking all the way. But seems to be insanely expensive... whenever I see a nice retro machine based in the UK that I want, the 25-30 EUR postage usually keeps me off...

Re: Giving up on atari

Decided this is all big waste of time. Of course it is ;) What real purpose could a 30 years old computer have nowadays? You love it or you leave it. These things need patience and time, and hell yeah it gets frustrating at times. But this is true for ALL these systems, not special to the Falcon. G...

Re: New video connector ?

For what it's worth, I'd like it to use a VGA connector and a simple rgb/mono toggle switch to mount somewhere on the back of the case. A thing I really don't like about UBE is it likes to switch modes on every reboot. And any fancy software mode switch is going to be a waste of time. Just for the ...
