I don't think you can set the time with CP.. you have to use the FMCII software to set it.

Is this something a TOS mod could potentially solve? I'm gonna add that to my list of things to get around to one day ;)

Re: Sidequest: VGA scan doubler

This is looking pretty amazing. Have you used Altera long? What do you think of the tooling? Thanks! Since late 2018 when I thought "you know what might be fun? FPGAs!". The IDE, Quartus, is a hefty beast, but at least it runs in Linux. I really just type up verilog documents and compile them witho...

Re: Sidequest: VGA scan doubler

As previously mentioned, I wanted to try running the video out through the original ST monitor port. I've just completed that test. First, one track needs to be cut to separate the HSYNC signal from the Glue into HSYNC_IN (from Glue) and HSYNC_OUT (to the monitor). These signals have flying wires at...

Re: Atari STE - Issues with power connector (J302)

How did you repair the PCB? You drilled out the hole and inserted a new metal tube (the eyelet?) into the hole? I've never heard of anyone doing this before. If that's the case you may be shorting the internal ground and power layers in the PCB sandwich. I may have totally misinterpreted what is goi...

Re: Sidequest: VGA scan doubler

kludge asked "could this work on Amiga"? Not really. I had a look at Atari schematics and it looks like 3 lines from the shifter for each color. The Amiga 1200 has 8 lines for each color coming out of the Lisa chip (which is why Indivision and other scan doublers connect over the top of the Lisa, t...
