Commodore 64 C64 ‘Super Video’ AV Adapter with S-Video, Composite & 2ch Audio
For sale is this Commodore 64 & 128 ‘Super Video’ adapter.
Straight from the Retro Shopbox labs, we had a huge problem, trying to get a decent audio and video signal out of the Commodore 64 and 128 without using questionable cables! Our solution was to design and build our own adapter to try and get everything you could possibly want out of the 8 pin DIN from the C64 and C128 and then a little bit more.
This adapter features;
- Compatible with all 8 pin video Commodore 64, 128 and later C64C (white) computers.
- The CORRECT8 pin DIN to plug into the C64 or C128, this will fit perfectly unlike the asymetrical 8 pin DINs commonly found that‘kind of’ but‘kind of’ don’t fit.
- Composite Video output, the previous standard for any C64 or C128.
- Dual Mono audio output, you can now get sound to both of your stereo speakers.
- Switchable Stereo output. If you have installed a second SID in your C64 or C128, at a flick of a switch you can go from dual mono to full stereo by using pin 7 of the video AV interface of your C64 or C128 to connect the output of your second SID.
- S-Video output. Yes Chominance + Luminance output! Not only that…
- Trimpot Adjustable Chrominance S-Video! Yes! At a flick of a switch you can go from direct S-Video to tweaking your S-Video to get the best possible picture with a trimpot adjustable S-Video output. Some modern LCD TV's cannot properly handle the output from the C64 and result in a 'Checkerboard' pattern on the screen, this adjustment lets you tweak your C64 to get the optimum colour output to your TV.The commonly accepted value is 300 ohms which every unit will be set to when leaving our Lab however you can set it anywhere from 0 ohm to 2K ohm. Test points on the board so you can precisely dial in the value.
- 7 Core heavy duty cable with full shield. This is not your el cheapo solution, it is fully foil shielded cable to reduce interference as much as possible. The board end then has a strain relief design to keep the cable in place and evenly balance the load of each inner core. At 20 CM of length it’s long enough to give you some give and tuck it away if you wish.
- Laser cut acrylic covers, you can see all the cool bits inside and they’re still protected from any accidental shorts.
Without any physical modifications to your C64 or C128, this adapter will give you the best possible‘Plug in and go’ solution to your Commodore 64 or 128's AV port.
Please note that the very early Commodore 64 computers had a 5 pin AV port, this adapter is not compatible with the 5 pin port, only the 8 pin AV port.
Sale is for the adapter only, no software is included. These adapters are assembled at RetroShopBox headquarters and individually tested to ensure that the do function correctly.
