Thanks guys. It seems that newer PVM doesn't like Pentagon timings, RGB or component, doesn't matter. I still have to find a way to "relax" PVM to accept Pentagon sync. Or find another 14Lx that works.

Best regards,
Goran

That's sad news. No problem with my L2 with 240p signals but I've had issues with 480i and the arcade cores like Tapper etc although no issues with real consoles and 480i. The Sony consumer TVs are more forgiving of signals than the PVMs.

I don't have issues with any other core (that I tested). Amiga, Atari, C64, Vic-20, PAL, NTSC... everything works. That's why I'm more sad about this issue and that's why I asked about timing difference between Pentagon and regular Speccys. Well, I have my old 1450QM if needed 'till I find another.

Best regards,
Goran

Now you can use the ARC files for this purpose. You can define any number of variants for a single spectrum.rbf with different romsets.

You're right. A good excuse to learn how to create .arc files. I'll make it and I will post my .arc files in case someone wants to use them.

You don't have to create new ROM file (the rom= method in mist.ini should work with ARC files, too). The ARC itself is very simple, 3-4 lines in INI format.
