Yes but the idea of this thread is (probably now was) to get enough people together to order a batch of a card that exists... But that's been derailed. Seems the objective is to stop people ordering this real piece of hardware for an idea you have in your head.
I really doubt about that, because the poll has grown after the post to explain my choice. I have no doubt that people can choose for themselves according to their desires and uses, because the V9990 is a great Yamaha VDP, close to the Mega Drive one, but for 8-bit systems.

EDIT: Looking the poll again, you have reach the number required (22+3) and you just have to wait them to pay.
I'm pretty sure that some other people will ask for the expansion late (hurry up!), because "avaliable".

Yes the poll does say that, but unfortunately only 18 people have provided me with their details to pass on.  A couple of those are interested in more than 1 card.  We are almost there.


As a separate project, perhaps someone will design an external video / audio switching / mixing box for CPCs with up to 4 stereo inputs and 2 video inputs?

maybe some people have not realized that they have to submit the data, because they do not check the forum often, could it be? .. I have warned everyone I know.

Yes, I think this is not the place to begin a discussion about how better would be a theoretic V9958 based graphics card against a real-working-with-software v9990 graphics card... 

Putting these discouraging "opinions" on a thread only asking for V9990 buyers seems for me that there is a second intention, may be a third intention...

Do not try to search problems where they are not. You are not on Facebook. Thank you.

I may be interested in one of these.

I do have some questions. Forgive me if any of these were answered earlier in the thread.

How many of these (and I mean the CPC version) are already in use? Do we know?

Apart from SymbOS, is there any other software that can make use of this card?
Is there a test program (even a simple one) or demo that does not need SymbOS, so that it’s easy to see if the card and the monitor connections are working?

I can’t tell from Tecnobytes web site. I presume they are based in the E.U.. Hence I have to keep in mind that due to the U.K. having left the E.U., if I buy one of these, I will have to pay VAT at 20% plus an administration charge on top of the total of the selling price and postage / shipping. That is unless Tecnobytes have arrangements in place to charge U.K. VAT before sending it or import it into the U.K., charge U.K. VAT and then post it out.

It gets significantly more expensive if I end up paying E.U. tax and then U.K. VAT on top…  >:(

As VAT is supposed to be charged on the price including the postage/shipping costs, I would like to have a better idea of the postage/shipping costs. I’m in the mainland U.K..

Is there any way to contact Tecnobytes so that I can ask them directly about taxes and postage / shipping costs?

Mark

Hi Mark,
Tecnobytes is based in Brazil.
There is this "Robot Demo" called testprogram for the CPCs V9990, which can be started from Amsdos:

I have to search for the files again.
Maybe Zhulien can answer your other questions?
Cheers,Prodatron

Taxes don't work as that.... even if you buy from E.U. you only pay one tax in your country...

They works as this: The origin country seller will charge you only the price of the item+shipping, without taxes. Once it arrived to your country, the item will be evaluated at Customs, and they will decide your added tax. It can travel through a lot of countries, and none of them will increase the value.


So, at the end, is your own country who will calculate how much tax will apply, usually similar to the VAT. The difference is if they include the shipping on the calculation base, and if they charge you additionally for the packet manipulation, but always inside your country. Not much about this has changed between UK and E.U. since Brexit, only that the they are now third countries for each other, no more associated.


All countries -including the "evil" E. U.- manage the same rules.

There is other way: Sometimes the seller can offer you to pay your taxes in the origin country. Accept it quickly. Usually the process will be cheaper and faster because, when the packet will arrive to your country Customs, the officials will be forced to admit it as tax applied.

Hi Mark,


Prodatron is correct, they are based in Brazil.  I don't know how many originally were in the first batch - but I suspect there are at least 30 in circulation now, could be more, but I would be surprised if there were more than 100.


I don't know how VAT works in UK in relation to Brazil.  Something to consider.  They will invoice you direct when I have everyone's details - I think that is the best way so everyone doesn't need to provide me or someone else with payment details.


Yes, contact them on their website.   http://www.tecnobytes.com.br/p/v9990-powergraph_10.html
