this is great info Paul! the new boards would need this fix for sure not sure if Eric(intric8) knows about this already or if you still have the info/ new chips from "Expert Services"Paul Zager wrote:Be aware that there were issues with the PAL chips on the Rejuvenator. I had to get a set from Expert Services with alternate timing compared to the stock chips in order to get my hard drive controller working off the expansion bus.
Unfortunately, that is indeed the case.Marchie wrote:This looks awesome. I was getting really excited about this until I read that it only works with older A1000's that have the daughterboard. Can someone confirm if that is indeed the case?
Note that the crystal will still be at the NTSC speed, resulting in a slightly off speed machine. Also of note is that the composite out will be out of spec (but who uses that?)intric8 wrote:if you have an NTSC A1000 yet you live in Europe and want to run PAL software (or you're in the US and want to run PAL software), the Rejuvenator has a jumper which will let you switch to/from either mode.
I just want to confirm this before I get too excited, I'm in Australia so I assume I have a PAL version, but this is the daughter board you are referring to right? It appears to have the pins and sockets underneath connecting it, i just havent taken the screws out to remove it at any point and I have read about rejuvenators in PAL Amigas before so I just want to make sure I'm not S.O.L here.intric8 wrote:@Marchie yes - if you have an NTSC A1000 you'll be set. If you have a PAL machine, that unfortunately won't be applicable with the Rejuvenator since those machines had their daughterboards integrated into the motherboard except for the earliest PAL versions.
