I noticed the Lloyds pong 812 rebranded as Monteverdi pong 825. I know Lloyds was Westen Auto's in house electronic brand. Did they license the unit from Monteverdi or did Monteverdi license it from them? Does anyone have a color one and colors does it display? I was thinking about getting one.

I got a Lloyds 813 pong console today. Seller said there was no video only sound. So I opened it up and adjusted two rf setting knobs inside and managed to clear up the picture enough to play it. I have more problems with color pong consoles while the b\lack and whie ones work flawlessly.

From the screenshots, it looks like the same hardware as the Radio Shack Color TV Scoreboard, which I'm sure Tandy/Radio Shack licensed from somebody else (dunno who, though...probably the same source as the Lloyd's and Monteverdi systems).

The gun shown in the video is definitely the same, as well. Very cool how you could add a couple of different barrels and stocks onto it. :-D I think the longer barrels actually make it harder to hit the targets, though, since they allow less light to reach the gun's photoreceptor.

They both use the MPS 7600-001 chip. I have another Radio Shack Color TV Scoreboard that uses the MM-57100N chip and the picture is always snowy on my flatscreen and it is designed to work as a switchbox as well as a game console.
