Quote from: Gryzor on 19:33, 28 April 09Good for you I've got to say, if you're used to the monitor or a modulator, the SCART image is just a miracle... I still remember the day I plugged mine in, it was like I upgraded my computer! The blue is SO bright!
Quote from: Gryzor on 09:46, 29 April 09At present, 3.5" disks are your best way to transfer files between the two computers... As for the mouse, I think the answer is no, as the wiring is a bit arbitrary - but I might be wrong. You could use a normal PC mouse with Symbiface though
Quote from: ukmarkh on 15:56, 29 April 09The scart cables don't work with most LCD tv's... so just watch out for that, as for the Modulators, I had one when I were a nipper and those things are a pig on some tv's. Would only ever work on my dads 28" Toshiba, but that was in the living room. I had two portables that would just roll the picture up the screen. You can open up the unit and twist a screw to improve things, but if I were you I'd bin the bloody thing.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 15:56, 29 April 09 I'm struggling with my Symiface II at the moment, currently looking for a 12v DC/Powerpack 500 Oms that'll power the unit instead of a great big blooming PSU. I've managed to source a small box for the unit and would like it to look complete. Anyone got any ideas as to what alternatives I can use that don't take up my whole desk space?
Quote from: loftcat on 01:11, 30 April 09Thanks for tip about Symbiface... are these things in production anywhere?
Quote from: loftcat on 01:14, 30 April 09I'm using a CRT to maximise the quality of my retros... I guess you guys are slowly stock piling old CRT TVs?? I have two but feel I ought to find another one, just in case!
Quote from: Cholo on 15:20, 02 May 09If none are left you might wanna wait for for Sf3 instead.Well, im am getting a bit worried. Only have that one crt tv right now and its used with everything from amiga to arcade, so hope it dosnt die on me. Hope a generic-converter of some sort gets invented soon, as its a bit much expecting that we "burn our bridges" to the older stuff.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 13:30, 06 May 09As for the the burning smell, Possibly a loose or dry solder Joint. This heats up and burns the board eventually, this is why you get the smell. Stop using, get a qualified TV repair man to resolder, it'll be easy for him to spot. Warning! Don't attempt this yourself unless you know exactly what you're doing (you will die otherwise). The high voltage capacitors in a CRT set do not discharge just because you've turned of the set... so be careful.
