Sounds great, how much will they cost?  Any chance of an english translation of the picture info?

sounds interesting! is it 100% hardware solution that is compatible with both cgx/p96 and OS4 or does it require some utility/patching?

Would it work with Prometheus/G-Rex/CVPPC?

Very very nice project!
I had the idea of starting making one, but if it's already here, even better!  :)
Could you place english comments as well on the pics to understand better how it works?

Nice job!!

The video situation on the Amiga has always annoyed me.  2 CRT monitors on your desktop at the same time anyone??

What a nightmare!!

A new design is on the way ...

... full software controlled.
Automatical detection of the used videosource.

Reduced size, can fit inside a standard A1k2-desktop housing if the rf-modulator is kicked off.

very nice but it`s a little to late for my nasty hack. mine`s is attached to the A1200 motherboard and can`t be removed,but it does allow my Indivision/Bvision to connect cableless to a single 15 pin VGA socket which replaced the old amiga video output. with the extra space where the video output is i added S-video. the Indivision connects via a socket. Bvision connects via a small PCB down the A1200 motherboard old LED sockets.

LED output has moved and now includes Floppy read/write LED output dual colour(green & red) & as well as PCMCIA access LED (purple).

floppy drive with motorize eject system.(someday it may eject via software)

Its now available as free DIY-workshop.

I also asked dealers to produce and sell them, but they are not interested.

Are these available for purchase anywhere? I'd have thought Amigakit would have been interested.

As Ratte said sometime ago... he has made this project available for anyone to make as DIY hardware.
Every info, schematics, PCB board plus the startup program is available on the link he gave.
Sadly there isn't an ready to buy solution.

I wanted to buy about 20 parts kits to build these and offer them for sale and a fair price to those in the US wanting one. I am having trouble locating the parts though. The DigiKey list he has on the front post is not in english and a few of the items are no longer found when you click the link.

If Ratte can give me the full list of one kit I will be happy to make them. I also need the boards.

Nice! Make sure you pad your price enough so that you're not losing money. Don't want any more of our good Amiga builders going broke! ;)

hmmm not sure how this works, so with this switch I should be able to use one monitor with my 1200T and go between RTG and IndivisionAGA screens seamlessly??? right now I've got a 1080 and LCD and some screens don't promote to the LCD so this would solve my problem if I install an IndivisionAGA into my 1200T??
