I do have both an Amiga 1438S (OEM Microvitec), NEC Multisync 3D and Eizo
something or other. The Eizo will quite happily take digital signals, too,
OTOH, I already have a mono 80-column monitor, so that won't help me much. I'd
rather like to see the blue BASIC screen in 40-column mode.

How deep into the traces on the C64 must one go in order to obtain RGB, RGB
not reassembled out of composite or Y/C, that is.

Useless, since I've already got monitors for every kind of computer output. =/

En ligne avec Thor 2.6.
Alle Verallgemeinerungen sind gef?hrlich, sogar diese.
