It looks from the photos like this will cover the bottom-right hole for the hard disk sleigh.

Is the sleigh still usable?
Will the board fit under the top rf shield, if in place?

Good idea. I will do that. Firstly, I have to find a longer cable.

Thanks Alex.

If you use this one (with a cable) you can hot-glue the adapter to the top of the PCMCIA connector (it lines up really well) and slightly widen the PCMCIA slot in the case and then you can remove the card without opening your Amiga. And it leaves the PCMCIA slot free for Network cards

@rixa,

You are right the hard disk caddy is not useable, but these days with CF / IDE adapters it's not so bad, you can still use a HD with a longer cable & some repositioning, My CF / IDE sits on top of the Indivision (insulated).

The RF shield needs to be cut accordingly with care if want to refit it which Jens does recomend in the short manual supplied.

Hope this helps

TC

What software is exactly bundled with Indivision?
How do you switch between the two modes (2x/2,5x) or toggle scanlines emulation? CLI commands? Commodity?

Also it would be a great idea to add new TOOLTYPES to WHDLoad that would control the scandoubler.

No software is bundled as the unit works straight out of the box without needing drivers.

However you can download the configuration tool from Individual Computers website

http://siliconsonic.de/t/bin/Indivision_Config_V08.lha

This utility allows you to set the scanline option & the 50Hz / 62Hz mode options, as well as a flashing tool for firmware updates.

The Tooltype options sounds cool, but at this stage don't know if it is necessary because The Indivision seems to cope with all Lisa Output modes used by Games That I have tried so far, obviously long term testing by us all may find some incompatibilities though... Who knows yet?

Yeah, found the link. Thanks! So it's not a commodity and currently there's no other way to control the settings from outside. An AREXX port would be a nice addition.

I'm not really concered with compatibility. I'm sure it does a great job. But some games look better with scanlines while others don't. Some would benefit from a 2x multiplier while others run happily at 2,5x. Or using 2,5x for working in workbench (less eye strain) and switching to 2x for games (tearing?).

Too bad it hasn't got a pass-through mode but it's still a brilliant product.

I see your point & understand your logic, by applications being able to control the output mode it would provide greater flexibility & customise the display as preferred rather than required by the user.

Who knows maybe this is possible for future releases.

I just logged on to Google mail (rather than through Outlook) and found that AmigaKit have sent me four order update e-mails this morning but Google had marked them as spam and put them in my spam folder!

Anyway, status is now "Delivered". Yay!

Steve.

This is inconvenient and something I would have expected to have been mentioned before .. same for the physical incompatibility with the RF shield cover and lack of a proper lid for the VGA connector. I'm not very happy with modifying original parts..

I use a CF/IDE adapter, but I attached it to the caddy to keep it from swinging about or hitting things. I need to think of something else now. How did you insulate yours?

As for the RF shield, you say it is recommended to keep it but cut it to accomodate the board? Perhaps the CF/IDE adapter could even be attached to the RF shield.

I recommend trying the amiga without the RF shield at all.
All may be well without it. ( I have used my A1200D without for it since forever)

@Rixa,

My CF/IDE adapter is currently just resting on top of the Indivision, It was velcroed to the RF Shield, Insulation is provided by the Velcro still affixed and covering the entire adapter.

I have yet to refit my RFshield as I was too tired last night and I am still debating should I modify it & refit or not, Refitting as you quite rightly say gives flexibility to reposition HD's or CF interfaces back onto the shield.

My feeling is that I will refit during the weekend.

I totally agree with you regarding the mounting for the VGA connector, in my opinion the only real shortfall of the product.
Cutting the Plastic Trapdoor cover may not provide too strong a solution Other choice is too hot glue a butchered old VGA card slot which I'm not too keen on either....Still thinking about this one..

I don't need convincing. I ordered two of them when they were first announced.

'Good, good, good, good vibrations...'

It's a sunny morning here in the UK (well my bit of it). The first sunny morning since I got back from holls!

Imagine my delight & surprise! (not just about the unexpected weather) The postie had a parcel from Amigakit in his hand!

So unexpected - I made the order just before midnight on the 11th! Today it's the 13th!!!
Now that's what I call prompt service - thanks Amigakit.

So exited!
It's stupid, I know, but I haven't been this pleased to see a parcel since I was a child.
In a fit of sadness I got out the camera to 'document' the opening ceremony...
...ahh! Very, very well packaged. All the parts I ordered present & correct.

And there it was: My new Indivision! Quick, quick, earth myself before I have a fiddle.
I must say it's a very professionally produced package, especially given these days of low-volume production.
The Indi itself?
A fantastic piece of work! Well done to Jens - I can't wait to shove it in my miggy.

Ahhhhhh...


Of course my 4 year old daughter is now kicking off big-style because I've dared to show a few moments interest in something other than her.
Nothing's perfect but for now; 'good enough'.


Once again my sincere thanks to Amigakit & Jens for continuing to support the Amiga community - there really can't be much profit in it these days so I hope my thanks in some small way goes towards making it worthwhile to you.

Regards.

Brilliant.
How have YOU mounted the VGA port? It looks neat.
