I found this picture today while trying to do some further research: http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/documents/chipdata/656x-luminances.gif From this image is looks like they were still finetuning the resitor values after R3. Too bad the image doesn't contain values for the HMOS versions. And here's some other information: http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/documents/chipdata/656x-luminances.txt Why do I always come up with the proper google terms some hours after sending a mail out? :) Gerrit Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-01-13 18:00:12
