In analogue RGB mode an acceptable picture may be possible by adjusting both the brightness and the contrast controls.
Manual shows the Contrast control doesn't do anything in Analogue mode.

I don't think CUB on analogue is 0-0.7V.
You're right, it appears to be 0-4v, which doesn't seem very useful. And woud indeed produce a washed out picture. Why was there all the interest in the analog mode in other threads, what are people using it with?

Re: Cub monitor issue

Not a lot of RED in that speccy picture, cable all tested?

Have you got the jumpers in the cub set correctly - viewtopic.php?p=257604#p257604

Re: Cub monitor issue

I'm curious what the display looks like with white missing, what colour was shown instead? Some pictures may help us understand what is going wrong. I would have thought setting the cub to analog (0-1v, or 0.7v), so it can work with other machines, and then use a cable with resistors in from the bee...

Re: A3010 FOR A FROG

You should be able to write Basic code without line numbers using PROC's and Functions. There will be an option in StrongEd somewhere to strip line number when opening BASIC programs.

Drag the file onto the icon bar icon. Drag and drop. Should work for any RISC OS application.

Re: Unknown board connected to 6845 CRT controller

I'm currently trying to build a genlock for a BBC and this certainly looks like one. However, it appears to be missing many components from the board (your's has missing IC's) and certainly far fewer than the design I'm using. I connected a better composite source (Sony DVD/HR recorder) and still d...

Will the econet podule work on RiscOS 3.70 or will I need to softload a differnent econet module? I read v4.02 and 4.39 in the thread above but didn't see any mention of 3.70.
My testing and setup of built boards has all been done on a RISC PC with 3.7. Works for me.

I'm suprised you got any picture at all with LK30 fitted. Only LK28 & LK29 should have links fitted, LK31 & LK30 should be open.
LK30 would short the Hsync and V/Csync output from the VIDC.

Re: Econet podule for RISCPC & A7000

That's a very niche product. A Risc PC or A7000 without working IDE. On a RISC PC you can add a many slot backplane for the IDE. So it's only real use would be for broken A7000's. It could be done, but probably not by me. I'm sure A3000 and A3010 owners would buy them though :D I'm not sure you've ...
