Having a problem with a TT030 I just acquired.
When connected to a VGA LCD monitor the picture does not fill the screen properly (it's squashed to the left) and there seems to be a lot of interference. The machine is working, but the display makes it unusable - the resolution doesn't look right and character rendering is kind of blocky; it basically looks crap.
I have not opened it up yet to check for poor connections, but can someone tell me if this is normal? The monitor works fine on an ST in high-rez mode (using an adapter), because it is old enough to be able to synch right down to 60hz. I really don't want to be sending it back as faulty... since they are so rare...

So the VGA output will not be looking "correct" against the standard spec.

B & C ComputerVisions (myatari.com) has reconditioned TTM194/5 for $50 and PCT1426 for $125. I've been thinking of going the monochrome route myself.

I've said it before, this thing gives full control over the video signal. It can sample the 32MHz pixel clock of the TT to perfection. Picture proof attached (TT-Medium on a Benq BL912 - without the OSSC the picture looks like crap!). So don't try and find the perfect monitor, just buy the OSSC and use ANY monitor for your TT.
