Connecting to a Television Set

Post by RWAP » Sat Jan 12, 2008 4:35 pm

A lot of modern TVs do not support the fine tuning required in order to get a strong steady picture from retro computers.

This is why we brought in the composite video kit - designed for the ZX Spectrum, it should work on a wide range of retro computers, but needs testing.

(Discussion from previous forum before deleted)
Whilst DEATH is not really up to working on these kits, we would be interested in finding anyone else who is able to make the kits up (and pressure DEATH to release the circuit board details!!)

Up to it now, new stocks should be arriving shortly. At least, I've ordered the bits and bobs needed, tested the UV lightbox etc. Just need to get the artwork laser printed now.

Only problem is, they're gonna cost a million quid each lol!! no, I'm telling fibs Smile

Yep, time to move on.

Preliminary artwork printed now, just needs touching in a bit maybe and the stuff to arrive, and we'll be in production. I must invest in a decent laser printer one day.....

Oh Rich, my site has moved, so the bit on your site sending people to mine regarding fitting instructions ain't gonna get far.

New addy for my site is:

Unfortunately, we have not been able to contact DEATH since the last comment was made above shortly before Christmas.

We have therefore now had to withdraw the Composite Video kit from sale and refund all those who had pre-ordered.

If any other developers wish to take up the challenge, please get in touch.
