Re: Vco offset voltage
- I went through this when I rebuilt my trainwreck Mono/Poly. The offset is obviously only a part of the overall procedure but it was a case of adjusting to get as close to zero as possible but measured at pins 1,3,5&7 on connector 39. The whole procedure I used is in the forum 'Files' section under 'Misc Files' - 'Poly.pdf'.

Than it makes sense of course. And now I managed to adjust them correctly (there was a 0.05v drift).
