Speaking of rejuvenators :) Any updates on the PAL cloning?
The man who successfully rebuilt the Rejuvenator board - Joethezombie - got crushed by an insane amount of work with his job the last several months and has barely been able to come up for air. It's been disappointing but unavoidable.

He has let me know recently that he hopes to get back to the equations soon, but the soon is undefined.

We're starting to discuss some backup plans to potentially two (or three) boards being built simultaneously.
Thanks for the update :) Maybe we all get a nice christmas present this year :)

Let me rephrase.

In the US, those are very rare.
I don't doubt for a second that PAL machines are rare in the US ;)
I wonder if they would be compatible with the Rejuvenator? I have a strong feeling they would be, which is kind of cool. Matching a Rejuvenator with one of those in 2019 would be a fairly unique setup.

Anecdotally, the A1000 owners from the EU that I've talked to about the Rejuve have always expressed disappointment that the daughterboard was required - meaning they didn't have them. That's where I was basing my previous unscientific assumption of rarity.

Looking forward to your experiments and pics, @batteman!
I am sure the Rejuvenator works. They are identical to NTSC machines apart from
- power supply,
- agnus chip (which is replaced by the Rejuvenator anyway).

Those are the only differences. NTSC crystal, NTSC-encoded TV-out (therefore b/w only on PAL TVs).

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. So the conclusion it seems is basically it's not really rare, rather "early" from a PAL perspective hence the daughterboard.

And I now want to get some upgrades in so I can have 1MB of CHIP some FastRAM and ideally a CFCard and actually use it rather than just looking at it :-) any suggestion s welcome, obviously the Rejuveinator or the ACE1K if/when it comes to light...

Regards,

Ross.

@Rossb some of the upgrade discussion sprang up over here.

N at the end of the serial means PAL.

Hmm, mine is a PAL machine it also is 240V Power but does not have the N in the serial.

From serials, we see "60", "10" and "11", that corresponds to the 3 known NTSC motherboard variants.. I wonder if all the XM11's have no signatures in the case.
Mine is an XM11 and I sure do have the signatures inside the case :D

Here's my Amiga 1000 purchased in 1985. Has signatures in the case.
