I'd be very interested and ready to support this if it was also available for the STE. Please remind me, but didn't I read somewhere that, at least at this point, this isn't being pursued? Something about some of the chip's functions being absorbed into other chips in the STE's design, or something along those lines?

Thanks, and awesome work guys, even if I can't benefit from it.

That was it. Thanks Exxos.

I was hoping that someone would say, "Oh no, that got corrected a long time ago. We found a way to do it!"

I really wasn't expecting it though.

There might be a way, if I remember correctly, where the HDMI-board could sit pass-through between the motherboard and the original STE GST-MCU. Slightly different project though.

Yeah, I also think it's doable. Instead of emulating the shifter it'd just read the RGB output pins, hsync, and vsync, and act as a traditional scandoubler. But since I don't own an STE I'm gonna have to leave it to someone else.

Nice, it got smaller and single board.

I should really give my original model a go in my Mega ST 4. Have a Mega ST 1 coming this weekend too, so lots of opportunities.

Looking nice Smonson.

Keep up the good work as I know it's difficult fitting all this development work around our lives and day jobs. Nice to see the evolution as well.

I see you are now on V6 and looking nice from its original inception. These things take time to develop and get right as a final production version ready for consumption by the masses.

Think this will be a nice addition to the H4 :)
