Re: Help with S-100 VDP board VGA output

Hi, it is possible that if CSYNC* = HSYNC* AND VSYNC* then VSYNC* =

Leon, would you please confirm that CSYNC* and HSYNC* pins on the
V9938 are TTL level outputs?

If they are TTL outputs and you happen to have 74LS86 XOR and 74LS04
inverter chips available would you please test to see if we can
reconstitute VSYNC* signal?

Thanks and have a nice day!
