Re: Atom Virgin - gets one !!!

Hi Folks, I’ve just built hoglets Atom to HDMI board....and it works too.... But when I was attempting to input hoglets test program in the instructions I found out something else about the Atom, it doesn’t do lower case letters, I’ve looked on this forum to find a solution to no avail. What do you ...

Re: MMFS SD Card on the BBC B Printer Port?

Hi Folks,

Sorry I missed this reply here, I’ve been following the other thread on this subject though...

I didn’t get round to investigating this as another project popped up....as they do.

RGB should give a much better picture quality.

yes Kees indeed it is, apart of the 50/60 Hz white band... :(
Do you always get the white band on the RGB signals from this board, does it remain when running games for instance ?

Hi folks, I input a colour check prog, but the results were cr!p. I don’t know if it is the old acorn card or the tv not accepting the signal, I had to get a scart cable for my other beebs. Failing that I’ve seen an analog to hdmi adapter on the forum, may try that. 2AF28FF0-A66D-4819-9DBE-7F48BD38B...

Re: Atom Virgin - gets one !!!

Hi oss003,

Quote,”Also C2 is out and the blue wire is connected to the +-side of C2 which means that the video out of the colourboard is the infeed for the modulator.”

Does this mean I connect the tv to the modulator...or the other socket next to the additional dodgy power socket.? Or both.

Re: Atom Virgin - gets one !!!

Hi oss003,

Thanks for the summary, I don’t have a power supply yet, I need to sort out that next.

Would it be best to desolder the power components and link 6 and 7 and use a 5volt one.?

It looks good and does not smell, I wish I could say the same for myself.....

Hi folks,
Thanks for your info on these various suppliers.

I tried Farnell, but they wanted £5.95 for a handling fee on a £1.46 purchase, so I went to eBay.
