Last weekend actually, but I didn't get round to working on it until Thursday and Friday evening and it's more impressive when done (especially as I managed not to cock up installing it)... a c0pperdragon video enhancer board for my Commodore 128DCR:

The YUV output is lovely: just need to sort out an RGBtoHDMI for it now!
I've added these+RGB2HDMI to my Breadbin and C64C machines and hard to believe I'm not running an emulator instead, the output is that crisp.

Actually, they do look better without "Archimedes" on there.

These covers look great. Have I missed something? Where are these available from? Do they have BBC B and Master ones?

A box of Amstrad...

Actually, there was a second box with a green screen monitor in it too.

But amazingly the CPC-6128 was fully functional, including the floppy drive, which is amazing.

Another excellent IanS A310 4MB upgrade! (Yes, that's still a MEMC1 in there as I've not got the socket to make the PAL-bypass for a MEMC1A yet.... duh)

A little treat for my A3020 (got to wait till I get it back though!). Possible the discs won't work, but it's a lovely box and I didn't pay a lot. Will look nice on the "retro shelf". :)

Could you really not be bothered to watch the whole video? The price is stated at 11:30. ~£45.

I'll say no more about it except that it gets quite technical at one point.

And then this.

One of IanS' IDE Podules, superbly packaged. Looking forward to trying it out, but the A3020 is still out on loan for another week or so. :)

A new Plus 1 which is now freshly upgraded to an AP6 by Dave Hitchens.

Thanks Dave - an excellent product and first class turnaround as usual. I'm sooooo happy to have all of the upgrades I could never afford 30 years ago for my Electron! Looking forward to another run of the AP5 sometime soon and then it really will be a fully loaded Elk.
