I did start putting all pcbs in a drawer a while ago.. but these pcbs seem to have pre-dated that "move".. Guess I will look again..

Which is fair enough as it was over a year ago you got them.

If you reorder them, I'd be willing to contribute towards a couple of them?

I found these chips in "the pile" So must have been one of the chips I planned on using..

This one buffers and cleans up the Digital output from.. whatever the chip is called :)

FMS6146MTC14X


This one buffers and outputs Svideo

FMS6400

Though is hard to find other than "iffy" suppliers or sources..

Don't worry RJ, I'd have broken it before you've built it.
