Atari-TT ECL to VGA Adapter

Postby edingacic » Thu Jul 12, 2018 12:24 pm

I know about TenoxVGA adapter and CodeKiller ECL-VGA adapters but I never heard of this one by Inventronik. Are they legit? Here is the link?

Anyone know how they differ from the above two adapters?

I went and ordered it as I got a response from Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Foerster will report how it works on my TT030 and Eizo panel.

I just got the adapter and it comes with a plastic connector and 3 wire clippers for what I think is a power source of 5v. I think I need to make this wire and take it I guess form the floppy drive? I already have a CosmosEX connected instead of a floppy disk can I power this adapter with the same wires by y splitting them?

I found a phone charger 5v and made a cable to power the adapter - works fine :)
Here are the pictures from full HD monitor not ideal monitor because it can't map 1:1 pixels but it works fine for now. :)

I will try now 30 inch Apple Cinema Display

Text is really sharp but the gradients you can't see because its not 1:1 mapping its phasing so I need a better monitor that can do closer to native resolution.

here is EIZO monitor looks amazing but I can't push the picture anymore to the left i had to use clock of 1792 to get it looking this perfect but I can't move the picture anymore to the left ... too bad :( I have to look for another LCD that can give me better control.

Here is one nice find... looks like ...MultiSync LCD2190UXp is a 21 inch version of NEC MultiSync LCD1990SXi mentioned by Tenox as a perfect display. I compared both manuals and yes both have expansion scaling off - and both support 1280x960 at 60Hz by interpolation. Manuals covers look also identical for this LCD series. I have also looked at other NEC displays in wide aspect ratio like NEC MultiSync EA221WM (22-inch) and that one also supports 1280x960 at 60 and 75 hz but it does not list expansion scaling off so I don't know if that one would work.

Anyone know if they had larger displays from that LCD series maybe 24 inch ... that would be really cool

I found MultiSync LCD2190UXp locally and will be getting in tomorrow and will report here :)

I found another looks like perfect monitor for TT
NEC MultiSync LCD2490WUXi - It supports 1280x960 interpolated - 60 up to 85hz and also has the Expansion scaling off and a Custom settings even deeper then the other NEC ... it is widescreen and supports 1080P also... also supports scaling any resolution to full HD. I think this one might be the best one :) Will hunt it down ... oh and its 24 inch :)

and MultiSync LCD2690WUXi - 26 inch version :)

and MultiSync NEC LCD3090WQXi - 30 inch :) :)
