1200XL M.U.L.E. Posted April 18, 2021 Share Posted April 18, 2021 I just installed a Sophia board into my 1200XL. Some observations. First, it was very, very difficult to install the board into the GTIA socket. It seems the socket is super tight! Maybe it is a "precision" socket with smaller holes for the pins. I had to press down with a bit of force to even gently get the Sophia installed. Second, my 1200XL has the UAV Rev D mod installed and the Sophia works fine. No need to remove the UAV. Third, the color rendering in the Sophia is very different than what I am used to seeing through the UAV Rev D and my S-Video connection. This is not a complaint. I think this could be the difference between analog and digital rendering. Maybe I am now seeing true-true-true colors and I am not used to them. I need to some A/B comparison between my two inputs. Fourth, the color/saturation trim pot doesn't affect the colors. I am attaching some photos of my TV screen showing a demo screen. The Sophia is almost a life-changing product for me! Now I am not limited to "TV sets". A whole world of "monitors" is now open to me. @Simius Thanks for making this available to the Atari community! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
