    For what it's worth I have a PAL unit that has this exact same modification - minus the connection to the modulator (it doesn't have one). It's an early 1985 model running TOS 1.00.

    Certainly a solution I've used in the past, but I have this card spare so would like to get it working if I can. Thanks for the suggestion, I may have to fall back on it if all else fails.

    Of course, Mr. Jobs didn't work at Apple during the days of the Power Macs. He left in the mid-80s and came back in 1997.

    Interesting thoughts, but you have to bear in mind that Wozniak was the hobbyist, Jobs was and always has been primarily a businessman.

    Yup!

    I have a 5200, that was a pretty poor machine. No wonder Apple were struggling at the time!
