Re: A newer composite converter than N4

Good to know, but that's a IR LED in the remote. Are you sure that the remote you got actually is the correct one?

Re: A newer composite converter than N4

I did order one of the ebay video->HDMI boxes to put my money where my mouth is. I shall try it as soon as I receive it. 8$ US with free shipping, I mean come on. Let's wait a few weeks, I have a 64, a Plus 4, a SX-64 and I guess a VIC-20 somewhere that I can try it with. I am somewhat perplexed by ...

Re: 1541 mechanism color

Oh I see, I was sure someone whomped in a mechanism from another drive, I could only think of the 1541-II or 1570 as having a beige color mechanism. I suppose the 1541C (that I never heard of before) was released at the same time as the 64C... I thought the 1541-II was the drive that went with the 6...

One thing I did find in research was that the Commodore has a refresh rate of 15 Hz.
You may want to continue your research. That doesn't make sense. Maybe you meant 15.75KHz, the horizontal frequency?

Re: A newer composite converter than N4

No, not really, but these things are like a fungus, they're everywhere and they're cheap, and probably go under many different brands. https://lyonsden.net/commodore-64-video-over-hdmi/ This looks suspiciously similar. Of course, there appears to be no control possible over what the device outputs e...

1541 mechanism color

Was there ever a 1541 with white/beige drive?

I don't think I ever saw one like this.

Re: 4264 vs. 2164 RAM chips

Hmmm, forgive my intrusion upon this learned discussion, but I think you can just pop in a 41256 chip in lieu of a 4164 and it should work as a 64k chip. The C64 will simply never address the extra memory. The extra A8 line on the 41256 would be left floating, so you'd need to tie it to a low-impeda...

Re: Is the SX-64 motherboard identical to the standard C64?

Oooh the 1902 monitor had an 8 pin DIN input for the 128's RGBI output. So that's two places you could plug the wrong cable to.
