I remember the heart of the Roaster was a xilinx chip that had to be plugged  to a socket on the Opalvision motherboard, but could only work if the card was the last revision (I can remember the number).

It provided 3D effects similar than the toaster, but also usable in PAL.

It's too bad the Roaster did not come out. It would have forced NewTek to innovate the Amiga Video Toaster  Flyer more.

It's quite funny actually, Amiga must get the record for the greatest quantity of unreleased hardware for any platform (not such a great accolade really).
Life begins at 100 MIPS!


Nice Ports on AmiNet!

How?  Amiga ceased to exist not the Video Toaster.

As far has the Video Toaster Flyer, well, they did.  They still are.

The big beige box/PSU has a different CPU, but their products continue.


TV stations still use the Video Toaster.  Just like any hardware you upgrade to newer versions when the current one gets old.   They don't know/care what it says under the sticker.

If you went into a local TV station and said "Remember when you use to use the Video Toaster?"   They'd probably say, "What are you talking about, use to?  We've been using Video Toaster since, 1991.  Look we have the latest version right here."

Back in my day, we didn\'t have water. We only had Oxygen and Hydrogen, and we\'d just have to shove them together.

You can take this off the list now ^_^

I have one sat in my big-box Amiga 600 next to me ;)

I thought the Delfina flipper actually existed??

Are we sure it's vapour?? I could swear otherwise, my memory might be failing though.

I think this was addressed earlier in the thread, but here we go.

The "Delfina Flipper" was announced with a "flipper" interface. The "Flipper" interface meant a zorro connector on one side and a PCI connector on the other side. This product never was released.

What was released was the Delfina "Flipper Edition". This product was clock port only, completely different.

Here's another two to add to the list;
Comspec Arm 1000 (Amiga Rom Module for A1000)
Comspec SA500 (A500 SCSI Expansion Adapter)


The ARM 1000 allows you to add a Kickstart 1.3 ROM to the A1000.

I played with the prototype but it was never released to the public due to limited interest and required Hardware modifications.
The PAL Ground Modification was required and the PAL Chips at U6J and U6L on the Daughterboard needed to be replaced. Also some PaL jumpers were required
between Pin 1 of U6J to Pin 19 of U6K and Pin 15 of U6L.
I still have a copy of the manual.

Also unlike other Comspec Expansions for the A1000 the case was plastic and not metal like the AX1000 and SA1000

I thought it had a Zorro interface and clock port just.

Oh well.
