Re: BenHeck Forums are back!!!

I just realized they came back when Element14 show ended. So it was Element14 that probably closed the forums to get us on their dumb site (contract BS I bet). But Ben kept the database...hooray!! Good work Ben :D

WTB/T Sega Game Gear with NO blue BIOS screen (oldest model)

Looking for the first generation Game Gear that has 2 ASIC chips and no blue BIOS screen when you first turn it on. I dont mind if it has leaky capacitors and has the dim screen problem. If your game gear turns on and boots right into the game without the "produced or licensed from" screen, I'm inte...

Re: PSone screen with VGA input?

Ah! I got it to work :D

BC547/8 ARE necessary, and that circuit does a solid job of making the composite sync!

What is required is special OLD drivers from nvida, called Forceware...download that and Powerstrip 3.90 or soft-15khz work like a charm! :)

Re: PSone screen with VGA input?

Did anyone ever successfully do this? I've been trying recently, and I built that circuit. I used a BC548 instead of 547 since it looks to be the same chip. However, using powerstrip or soft-15khz (another similar program for this project) with my Geforce 7800GT I had no success. I noticed that when...

Re: 3.5" LCD with RGB input? (for Nomad modding)

well that's your opinion and I respect it but do disagree. I think anyone seeing it side by side would notice the difference. People may tolerate it but there is a difference. I modded a 3" portable TV screens years ago and when I did composite v. RGB it looked much nicer. Regardless of screen size,...

Re: Will 8.5V kill a psone screen?

The 7.5v supply goes to to 7805 chips which burn off the excess and create a steady 5v. However, it also goes to one pin in the video decoder circuit that is more delicate and not meant to take much more. So your 7805's will definitely get hotter (and they don't have heat sinks) and you may damage y...

Re: Replacing the Nomad screen

sorry to bump an old thread, but I just saw this for the first time & it is a very nice looking mod. anybody figure out what the main ADC chip is in the middle? if its one of the common IR3Y/IR29 ones, you can actually get RGB video through them (which the nomad provides)...
