Is anyone using one of this? Any comments or suggestions? What else would be needed to use with A1200?

Do you have a link to the product/sale page? I'd like to have a close look on that myself.

That product works but not that well. Here are some pictures of when I tried it on my IIgs.


Produces horrible artifacts.

The desktop background is supposed to be solid blue.
And the progress bar is supposed to be red.

But in lower res modes it works fine ie 320x200

Uhm, but still better than my old Commodore 1084 :D

I'm wondering how it'd work with an Amiga 1200?

I've got that RGB-VGA Converter too and it's terrible, my el cheapo GBS-8220 is much better - theres a new one that I've ordered to test that converts SCART RGB straight to HDMI or DVI-D with native 50/60hz support and is only $45aud.

one of the lads over at AmiBay has had reasonable results so far:

So what about this one? Seems cheaper and apparently people are using them for Amiga. Anyone here using these?

Thats the GBS-8200, they work fine and are very cheap - PQ varies wildly tho from reasonable to poor depending on cable qulaity etc.

The SCART to HDMI/DVI-D converter is only $45aud from China or about 30P in the UK:

The ACV-011 looks interesting; too bad they don't sell those including the enclosures,
