    I keep it distorted. The black bars irritate me. The only time this is really problematic is with iPhone videos, which are just annoying anyway.

    I never liked this 54:17 stuff. It just keeps getting worse. Sooner or later, TVs will have The Notch...

    What bothers me more than the aspect ratio though are the watermarks. The TV program my...

    I've been doing it a couple of years. I don't really trust Google for this either. Surely they are listening for some purpose. C'est la vie.

    I have never had a TV bigger than a 25" console. Well, I did buy a 27" TV about 25 years ago and the quality disgusted me so I returned it. I have one cheap (in my family room) and one really high...

    I'm in the same boat as ngtwolf. $70 or so for more internet than I need, free VoIP with Google and an Obi200 (also have a now useless Obi100). I don't pay for movie or whatever services online...

    I don't have schematics. I rarely do for most things I get stuck working on. :)

    That's a rather fancy version of a monitor which I have several more plain models of. They are rather nice monitors which seem to be Asian (don't recall if they were Taiwanese or Korean) TVs without...

    I fried an A2000 ROM stupidly plugging it in backwards. I really know better. A2000s notoriously have that chip the opposite direction from what looks normal.

    WD-40 is a terrible penetrating oil. It is a halfway decent lubricant and a great rust inhibitor. It's not really appropriate as a lubricant in something that you don't want to have to re-lubricate...

    I wonder if it has a loose/dirty one of those conductive strips under it.

    Strictly speaking, zero page isn't required at all for a 6502, but stack ($100 page) is. However, zero page is typically important for the kind of ROM programs this type of computer comes with.

    I don't know... I've been using it in my entire residence for almost 20 years now and the problems I've had are minor. SCRs that die and 4-button RF wall switches that lose their programming...

    Yes. At least twice the price of equivalent X10 branded modules. But if the specs are correct, they were well worth the cost. Much more versatility than, yet full compatibility with, the X10...

    I *think* you can get Leviton branded X10 modules that are two-way. I seem to remember programming for them.

    At least you're lucky enough to have the 5V memory board. Unfortunately I can't help with the repair. Mine is in exactly the same state and I just don't have time to do anything with it.

    Oddly I got an email from X10.com (the really shady website that's legitimately associated with the real manufacturer (IP holder?) just today telling that you can now control X10 from your...

    The CM11A controller is RS232 and works on any machine with RS232. There are newer modules that work with modern "PCs" over USB.

    The parts you are selling will work with, but don't require a...

    Huh? Are we discussing Castle Wolfenstein, or Wolfenstein 3D?

    I haven't played Castle Wolfenstein on a PC, but on Commodore and Apple machines, it's reasonably difficult. I can see where it...

    The only time I ("summarise"?) replace condensers without specifically testing them is when there are a large number of large electrolytics in something that I already know has multiple bad ones.
