With further consideration I'd suggest that the hypothetical hardware
LDIR-alike be optionally able to logically invert its output addresses.
With suitable adjustments to the inputs, that gives you counting down as
well as counting up. So you can also scroll left-to-right!
That stuff all aside, does anybody know anything about the compatibility of
PAL machines with modern NTSC flat screens? The one I have otherwise does
an excellent job with a composite input, including the off-spec
non-interlaced stuff that '80s computers put out, but I've not tried it
with a 50Hz or PAL signal. Do manufacturers still bother to differentiate
or have economies of scale reduced everything down to a single chip
It also has component inputs but I've nothing that outputs component video
and wouldn't be surprised if it's implemented in such a way as to accept
only HDTV signals.
Which is a roundabout way of wondering whether I'd ever be able to use a
Sam 2 on this side of the Atlantic. Anyone care to speculate? I guess one
of those composite/s-video/RGB to HDMI converters might be a smart
investment anyway as they're probably only going to get more obscure.
