I think all versions of the 1084 only understand one colour standard, either PAL or NTSC. All 1084s are compatible with 50Hz and 60Hz signals. I guess the confusion arises because users connect Amigas to a 1084 via an RGB cable, and see the Amiga picture in both "NTSC mode" and "PAL mode". I would like to find out exactly what components differ between NTSC and PAL models of the 1084. Then I could convert my PAL 1084 to show NTSC composite video in colour. Does anyone have this information? Or a 1084 service manual (either the original 1084 or 1084S)? Failing this, an NTSC-to-RGB video decoder shouldn't be too hard to make. Has anyone done this? -- Mark - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail email@example.com.
