Nice work.

As a "one day" project I was thinking of a dual mount for a gotek + scsi2sd in a single 3.5" bay - I haven't measured it but I think it might fit. Hopefully someone beats me to it :)

Sounds like your RGB to VGA adapter is not buffered (it's straight through) meaning the A2000 thinks a genlock is configured.

Easiest fix is to get a buffered VGA adapter.

The GVP should work with the TF534 and if you remove the RAM on it, with the TF530. If I get a chance on the weekend I'll test both of these options as I have the hardware.
