509Re: Vip Video
- May 17, 2013Hi Doug,
The Televideo 920 is a nice looking terminal, it would be a shame to not use it as a sort of "Super VIP". You just need to add some keyboard interface and put some ELF Basic into ROM :)
Lot's of good projects... not enough time, I'm facing the same dilemma here.
I think the 1881 chip makes a good sync separator, but if you want to do it using only 74LS chips, I built a circuit that does just that... I'll just need to draw it for you as it's still on the bread board.
