Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

It seems display doesn't care about pixel clock, so any clock is OK. Thus you can use 1920x1080 with lower clock like 110MHz.

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Some additional notes: The best SDRAM placement for this case is horizontal inward if you use included standoffs to fasten DE10n. Extra slim preventing the door to be closed very little. I will try to fasten DE10n without standoffs - it should be able to fit. Need to think about fan placement. Proba...

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Here we are: 20180119_125332.jpg DE10n fits inside almost without problems. I only had to remove the metal shield of battery because it requires some standoffs to prevent short circuit on GPIO. And with standoffs ethernet connector prevents closing the door. Metal shield can be returned on its place...

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Well, 148.5MHz is too high. It will add metastability to most cores which i don't want.
I think, for FullHD TV it's better to choose 960x540 resolution which is exactly quarter of FHD and should not add artifacts of second scaling.

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

please do not overquote! There is no reason to quote whole my message just to write a several words. FullHD is possible, but pixel clock 148.5MHz is kind of extreme. Especially for large cores where higher clock is additional source of instability. Core should be compiled with highest possible HDMI ...

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Originally i was fan of idea to install MiSTer inside Amiga 1200 Kickstarter case. As always with kickstarter campaigns it delays a lot. So, i found this Pi-top case and it looks even better since you have display integrated. So, I've decided to give it a go and ordered the case. By the way, since i...

Re: ZX-UNO Spectrum FPGA

ZX-Uno has a big drawback - it's limited to Spanish society. Developers should make English as a primary language for their forums if they really want to spread their project. Google translator is handy, but still it's a big red sign for most people.

Re: Screenshot Dumping?

Easiest and universal way to take a screenshot is to use video capture device. FPGA is different from software emulators. There is no such thing as frame buffer in its classic form - every emulated system provides video differently and sometimes its constructed on the fly. For example, ZX core has a...

Re: MISTer on DE0-nano-SoCKit?

Amiga HW originally support programmable video resolutions. At least AGA chipset. You can program any horizontal and vertical resolutions with pixel clock 7, 14 or 28MHz. There were some special monitors supporting 1024x1024 resolution with 10Hz :) With correct monitor device driver in Workbench you...
