Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

After some further research, is it possible that I have some failing capacitors on the STe's motherboard? When I had it opened I didn't notice any that stood right out as problems, but I wasn't looking that close at them. If it is the caps, do I need to replace them all (looks like there is a hell o...

Re: ADSpeed accelerator software

Awesome.

Just tried it out and appears to work fine. After running the 16mhz.prg I checked in Sysinfo.prg and reports the cpu @ 16MHz.

I will probably install a hardware switch sometime down the road, but this is certainly helpful.

Thanks!

Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

If you wouldn't mind posting that software. Perhaps its compatible. God knows I have searched high and low for it. Also, picked up a RF choke today for the monitor cable and a couple of the "cheater" ungrounded plug adaptors to use on the monitor and STe just in case there was some kind of...

ICD AdSpeed STE software

Anyone have a copy of the software that came with the Adspeed device? I have searched high and low with no luck.

Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

Ok, swapped out the psu from my STf and it made no difference at all. Tested both power supplies in my STf and the picture was sharp and crisp. However on my STe it just isn't as sharp as on my STf. Very light ghosting and a very slight waviness to the picture. Mostly detectable during an all white ...

Re: Modified ST hassles

Whats your plans for something like the STe machines?

I wouldn't mind having a small, compact IDE board on the inside my STe with a CF card in it. Hopefully with the CF slot directly on it instead
of going from a ide cable to clunky CF adapter.

Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

I might pick up an RF choke today and snap it on the video line and see if that make a difference. Radio Shack sells them for $6. Since the STf doesn't have this issue, I'm not sure if it will have any effect on the STe's issue. Going to also swap power supplies tonight and see what effect that has....

Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

I am using the same cable thats built into the SC1224. I had another SC1224 that kicked the bucket so I removed the cable from it and installed into this monitor. Made zero difference. Its a shielded cable. If I unplug my STE and plug in my STf the video is sharp and perfect. Problem ONLY appears to...

Re: Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

I replaced the cable on the monitor. Same result.

I haven't tried the RF output yet.

Just odd my STf is perfect with this monitor.


My STe has all its internal shielding. The ghosting almost looks like interference. Is the STe machines more
vulnerable to RF noise than the older machines?

Slight ghosting in STe RGB output

Just received a NTSC 520STe with 4 megs ram installed. Machine seems to work fine except a bit of ghosting on the RGB port. Connected to a SC1224 monitor (picked another one of these up). My 1040STf works perfectly on the SC1224, just my STe has a ever so slight ghosting. Usually only noticeable on ...

SC1224 stopped powering on

My recently purchased SC1224 monitor appears to have died on me. It was working fine early yesterday evening. Turned it and the ST off and then a few hours went to turn it back on. The monitor makes the normal sound a CRT makes when switched on, but nothing displayed on the screen and the power ligh...

Re: New Atari ST user - bunch of questions

Thanks for the advice. Have another question. On my 1040STf there is a light on the right hand side just below the Atari case badge. I am assuming that is the floppy drive light? I say "assuming" because I haven't seen it light up at all. The internal floppy drive works fine. Or is a light...

Re: SDCard HxC Floppy Emulator Preordering

Perhaps this has already been mentioned, put would it be possible to adapt this to external use via the external Floppy port?? Would hate to give up the internal floppy and would like to use this on multiple STs. Yes but you need to set the internal disk drive as B: or use the emulator as B: only. ...

New Atari ST user - bunch of questions

Hello folks! Recently just picked up an Atari 1040STF with a SC1224 monitor and have some questions. 1. Will a unmodded Sega Genesis/Megadrive controller work on the ST? I have read several threads with conflicting opinions on this. 2. Since I live in the US, my machine is NTSC. I was reading here o...

Wanted: Atari ST in the USA.

Hello folks! I am on the look out for a NTSC 1040 ST in the USA. With or without a color monitor, but I would prefer to get a monitor as well. This would be my first ST and I am kinda excited. I had a Falcon about 5 or 6 years ago, but sold it shortly after as I just wasn't familiar with the Atari h...
