What are my RGB or S-video options?

I believe the RGB kit that is available for the atari 8bit computers can be used on the 5200. For just composite and s-video, I would go with Bryan's UAV board. I haven't looked into the installation of that board into a 5200 yet, but I would imagine it isn't any more difficult and likely easier than most others I've seen.

Who is Bryan? Where would one go to purchase that s-video kit?

 

I'd really like a no solder option as my soldering skills suck.

Bryan is an AA member here and that is his AA username. Just send him a PM to order one of his UAV boards. But it isn't a drop in board either. None of them really are. I think the 5200 since it has a 4050 chip on it. requires that you solder the header for the UAV ontop of the 4050 and then attach to the UAV, then jumpers are needed to connect the pins specific for the 5200. From there you still need to solder wires and install RCAs/S-video to the console.

Actually with the 5200, if you get the plug-in version of Brian's UAV then you can just pull the 4050 chip from the socket and plug in the UAV. Then you have only one wire that needs to be soldered, and it has screw terminals for attaching wires to the video out.

To the best of my knowledge, he wasn't recommending pulling the 4050, rather soldering the socket onto the 4050, then inserting the UAV into the socket. I know on the light-sixer tutorial he made, that's how he recommended doing it, and that's how i've done it on both my light sixer and two different 5200's..

 

At that point you just need the video feed in, ground it, and composite out. I've not done an S-Video mod with this particular board, however, the video quality is so good with composite that I haven't felt the need to go through the extra hassle. :)
