My B128 (was from someone who got it from PRotecto when they were liquidating them in the 80s) has a 5-pin video DIN (anyone know the pinout?), but my P500 has an 8-pin one (like the 64).... :-/ Cameron Kaiser wrote: > > Larry, since you asked about solder pads for the joystick port, I didn't > see anything obvious rear left.

That *might* just be,I have a lousy Quickcam pic of my MB here and it looks like it comes from a connector like the keyboard uses (single or double row header) to the two joy ports. Comparing the two images (mine and that side-by-side one) the image the of the 2 B-Series computers the one on the right *looks* exactly like my P500 MB. It could possibly be retrofitted into a P500 with a little effort. I'll try to dig out the P500 and snapshot it today.
