I hereby volunteer in building wire harnesses should that help in opening this project up to a bigger part of the community. Having built countless of fpv drones dealing with wire messes and crimping connectors doesn’t feel to alien or annoying to me :). I’m based in Sweden so shipping back to...
The backplate for those had both connectors on them, so still doesn’t check out 100%. At least we know some had some version of a DB15 on them..
Show him some of all the leboncoin ads selling SE’s for €50-100 😉. Good luck and let us know what you find!
The DisplayServer cards came with both a DB15 and a DB9, and I belive there were some accelerator cards offering an optional display out port. Anyhow, now that you’ve got us all intrigued you simply have to buy it and let us know 😅
What are they asking for it?
Just picked up this portable tv from around early 2000’s. Almost seems like a far related family member, you can clearly see where they got their inspiration from.
A small bummer was that it turned out to be 10” although the spec sheet said 9”. I guess due to the total/visible spec difference...
I posted a pic of my ColorCard SE/30 here: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/supermac-spectrum-24-project.25793/post-457522
What SE/30 card do you have? In case it got lost in the thread, I’m looking for a rom dump of the Spectrum SE/30 😊
Don't know if it's of any help, but just stumbled upon these SuperMac roms uploaded to archive.org for the Spectrum/8 III, Spectrum PDQ and the Thunder 24. Perhaps can be useful to compare against your dumps or different versions perhaps? https://www.buriedbits.org/a-whole-lotta-roms
Thanks, that strenghtens my belief these are indeed the same card, with just the rom being different.
According to the info I could find, the Specteum variant came first retailing for $1895 supporting up to 1024*768 at 256 colors. They later followed up with the budget oriented ”ColorCard”...
Well, after a new round of googling I managed to find the below image
Is it from you @beachycove ? Our cards look identical, would be super interesting to try the rom you have and see what that does :)
Super interesting thread. I have a somewhat related hypothesis on these cards. I just acquired a Supermac ColorCard SE/30 (courtesy of fellow 68kmla user @ktkm). After having vacuumed the web for details (not that I managed to find that much), I'm hoping this card may be identical hardware wise...
