Retro News & Chat / TeletextR PodcastR - Escape from the NTSC

Hold on to your remotes! its a Teletext podcast, it's better than my wife's 22" Bush.

"But guys," we hear you cry. "How on earth can you represent teletext, a naturally silent medium, in audio form?" Well, Carl and Dan weren't quite sure at first but, thanks to an unnatural determination when it comes to telemetext, began fumbling blindly for 'relevant' topics. And do you know what? I don't think they had any problems finding talking points... I'll let you be the judge of that, however.

Retro News & Chat / I Just can't get enough, ZX graphics demo.
« on: February 16, 2015, 09:00:16 AM »
It has taken me long enough to get around to experimenting with some ZX spectrum graphic utilities, this is the first Demo I have put together, Yerymez kindly granted my permission to use his AY music.
 thanks @Greyfox for sharing this with others, I am pleased that people like it.

link for nonflash users,


ZX native version, running on my ZX
A howto blog or video  to make your own ZX demo graphics with or without a real spectrum.

Retro News & Chat / Question to Retromod
« on: February 13, 2015, 11:33:43 AM »
I have a scart output only for my ZX spectrum, I wanted tap an RCA video out from it. I managed to get a very clear picture, but only in Black and White. I tried making a resistance ladder with the R,G,B luma outs to GND but I could not do anything.

I have a cheap adapter on order but wondered if you knew why or how I could hack a solution?

I have finished my space invader cabinet, the install was fairly straight forward, the dismantling of the PC was a trick feat but apart from that I found the whole experience very relaxing :)

more picture on my blog,

but here is a video...

Retro News & Chat / Dicking about on the Spectrum.

Hi all, not been able to do much, retro for a few months, however I did blow dust of the old Speccy and had a play with the streaming utility on the divide interface.

The result was a random video of ED209 and some spooky numbers stations transmissions.I don't think I will have hollywood on the phone as a result! :)

ZX Spectrum, ED209 and the Swedish irdial

In other news, I have added to my Amstrad NC collection, I hope to post the pictures up soon.
