Re: Gert's VGA add-on for the B+

What port on the CM8833-II did you use? Did you use the SCART connector? I have a CM8833 mk1 which only has the SCART connector. I used the DE-9 Analog RGB connector, and connected the R, G, B, HSync, VSync and Ground pins to the corresponding VGA pins. Using SCART won't be quite the same as it onl...
