Fantastic news - congrats, Mr Toast!
I was so happy when I finally saw this magical prompt. It was as if a thousand Atarians suddenly cried out... and then SILENCED!
That nearly made me choke on my coffee as I was reading. :D

The jailbars are next on the to do list. I ordered the C128 LumaFix, which should be coming here before 2020.

Now I can turn my attention back to a non-working A2000 board belonging to a gentleman from my home state of FLA.
Do you want a LumaFix C128 sooner rather than later? I ordered (and received) two of them. I have decided not to install them because between the time I ordered and received them I got an appropriate SONY PVM to hook up to the C128. The bars are not noticeable on the PVM CRT, whereas on my LCD they look terrible. I will likely keep one in case the PVM ever dies and I have to go back to an LCD.

By the way great job on the restoration. It is fantastic to see it running and two SIDs will be sweet!

I will continue using pleb mono sound for now, as I have moved on to a couple of other projects :-)

Thanks for the offer but mine has already arrived. Hopefully get to install it this weekend. Very impressed with the professional packaging.

I'm probably going to swap the TOLB 8701 with a standard 8701 as it will interfere with the physical footprint of the lumafix.

Thanks again! Appreciate the help in getting this in gear!
