    I have a peritel modul that I used on TV in the 80's (you can see it between the the ZX and the joystick kempton/cursor modul on the picture with the Aiwa and the Quickshot)... And my LG Led TV still have a peritel input... it works fine (way better than the composit/video out even with the mod)

    For those of us in Europe wondering what Peritel is it is what people in France call SCART.

    Rather strange given that SCART is an acronym for Syndicat des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radiorécepteurs et Téléviseurs the French organisation who invented it.

    For those outside Europe who are wondering what SCART is

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART

    The separate signals for RGB give a similar picture quality to VGA.

    Hi,

    I'm fond of retro computing too, and own some "computosors"... Like my boomboxes, I love to mod them, like including a divIde inside a Speccy 128+2, or Gotek in Amiga, or sd2iec in C64, or sio2sd in an Atari 65XE, or a rapsberry inside a +2...
    And my favourite of all time is the Speccy 128k+2.
    There is a very active community working on the Speccy, you can see it there : http://www.worldofspectrum.org/forums/
    Some of my jewels :biggrin: :

    Wow! That's pretty impressive collection. I didn't realise you could put a Raspberry Pi in a Spectrum, I might have to look into doing that.

    That is an impressive collection. I have never known anyone who had an Oric and I don't even recognise the computer at the bottom left.

    The modified Spectrum reminds me of the sort of thing people were doing when mini ITX boards first came out.

    http://www.mini-itx.com/projects/c64/

    It is worth browsing through some of the other projects although many are now over ten years old.
    That explains why your Raspberry Pi is faster than the PC motherboards they were using.
