View Full Version : hardware hack wanted : ami -> SVGA
how can i convert the monitor plug to a standard that i can plug my pcs monitor into it. i have an A600.:confused
I'm using this (http://www.powerc.com/cgi-bin/psearch.cgi?code=500-0005&rn=539&aid=&uid=SSYt5XBH6ncLFW.&sid=&cid=4&act=gpage) but you imght want to get a scandoubler instead

Burseg is right :) You better get a ScanDo if you want to play games on a PC Monitor because the Amiga Output is 15kHz and you would need a Multisync PC Monitor to get a Pic onto the screen ;) You can only use WB and WB Apps/Games with that adapter if you use the DblPal or VGAonly Screenmode but nearly all games switch back to PAL/NTSC while booting and youŽll not get anything onto your PC Monitor !

Or get some A3000 :p
The A3000 doesn't have a scandoubler built-in. The 15 Khz outout still need of a multisync or 15Khz monitor.
Mozzo, i've got the adapter and it works a treat for productivity modes, but if you want to play games, do as Retroman says. A scandoubler is a very good investment IMO.

A3000 DOES have a deinterlacer/flicker fixer circuity onboard (Amber), the same as A2320 ficker fixer card that I have in my A2000, so it can be connected to a VGA/SVGA monitor - it has one VGA DB15 male, analog RGB connector.

A3000 desktop has as standard features-
68030 + 68881(or 2)
1-16mb 32-bit fast ram
1-2mb chip ram (of which the cpu has true 32-bit access to)
ECS w/ 2mb fat agnus chip
4 zorro3/2 isa/1 video/1 "fast"(cpu) slot
the tower has more slots and probably a beefier power supply

That's more like it... I just knew about the flickerfixer and that doesn't double the scanrate up to 30Khz... I had no clue it had scandoubling hardware inside...
Another reason for me to buy one :D

Yup, A3000T was IMHO the best Amiga ever made... not to talk about A3000+ (a few were even sold) :) but I suppose thats not the topic of this thread ;)
