Acorn Atom Composite Display

Post by martinw » Tue Oct 23, 2012 7:17 pm

Hi,

I've sent a PM about a colour board for an Atom, but haven't received a reply, so I presume they're not available at the moment.

I've been using an old plasma TV up until now, but it's not really practical in my small office.

Is there anything out there that will convert the Atom composite output to SVGA or HDMI?

I've tried a couple of converters that I had hanging around, but they don't seem to be able to sync with the signal.

Thank you in advance.

Martin

For B&W Composite I have a super-cheap svhs/composite to VGA (£14, ebay) and that works perfectly...

Looks like this:

No distinguishing marks on it though. Completely generic thing...
