Do you actually mean DCTV - the frame-grabber? Or do you mean CDTV?
My V500v2(unsure if it is a + or not) is installed in my CDTV.

Btw, someone can reassure Voijin that I am not seeing "the much improvements" from core to core that he speaks of, all cores from 2.7 to 2.9 have been rather flaky with regards to software compared to 2.5, and it doesn't help with that bastard FPU that cannot be permanently turned off. Well, Gold Core 3 will solve that problem I suppose.

yes: The 24bit composite & frame grabber thing.

I thought he was talking about that at around 42:00?

Agreed. I remember reading a comment that Apollo Core testers had been testing WHDLoad games around the clock for compatibility. Out of all the games I have, the only one I saw that had any improvement was Lotus 2 (it had glitching in GOLD 2.5 and earlier) whereas conversely 6 games have broken since GOLD 2.7 onwards.

It's a little frustrating because I haven't had any replies to my bug reporting and I'm not sure there's any point reporting on the WHDLoad Mantis bug tracker since they may turn around and say: "It's working for us on all our machines, get Gunnar to fix his core." Plus WHDLoad team take ages to respond to bug reports because there are so many of them.

Yes, I have noticed going backwards a bit with new cores.
A few games that played well no longer do.

In graphics Grafx2 has a very dark unusable screen. Personal paint has some weird screen configs no matter what resolution I am using.
