Re: trouble with old cassettes.

Thanks again for the info and links to assuage my curiosity. Seems moot now as I got a programme loaded and killed the speccy with a single press of the red button on my multiface 128. The screen went black with a blue surround and would not recover from that state. Speak again when it gets back fro...

The tapes have come in from a colder area so good idea to warm them up and dispell any old condensation in there. All those interfaces include a Kempston Joystick interface (single) for 48K m...

trouble with old cassettes.

So the old speccy + 128K came back from the menders and I have six brief case size cases and several shoe boxes jammed full of all the old games and software that I had collected over the years. The Old Texet CT-600 cassette player is all cleaned up and running but I am having difficulty loading the...

Re: connecting to Digital TV

Many Thanks again to all. Especially Guesser who prompted me again to try the analogue route. Using your wisdom , sir I managed to tune the 128 and one of the 48K speccies to my older DVB TV. Results show a kind of output to the TV. https://s7.postimg.org/rwxf5vpvr/20180323_133227.jpg This first ima...

Re: connecting to Digital TV

Wow. Thanks for the huge response from all you guys. I made a the mistake of thinking this would be either a simple "its gone belly up, ditch it" or maybe "Check you've got the plug in properly." it's been best part of 30 years since I took a plug apart and back then there was 3 cables in it, and a ...

Re: connecting to Digital TV

Well I got the lead, Very quick delivery considering the weather we've had. Unfortunately my TV screen is mostly Black but you can discern the Black border around the black stiped central portion that visuals used to appear in.

connecting to Digital TV

Rummaging through my underground Attic I rediscovered about 300 old Spectrum games, 3 old 48K spectrums and a Spectrum128+. There was original power packs for both models and they have good outputs. I connect the tv output to the coax socket on my digital tv but of course, (stupid me) i surely need ...
