Atari 400 repair and composite video mod


I recorded a set of videos recently documenting some troubleshooting of an ATARI 400 system, and the conversion from RF to composite video. There was so little info out there about this mod that I thought even my crummy video would help. 

The embedded video above is the 4th and final part that shows the composite conversion. Here are links to the other parts and some docs and forum posts I found along the way…

The TurtleCam is unfortunately no more…

I’ve moved a few times since I had the webcam broadcasting live views of San Francisco and while I am now back in the city, my current views don’t really merit the attention. 😉

It was a blast being able to share the view and everything I needed to learn to make that happen.

Maybe one day I’ll have a nice view to share again… In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a time-lapse video of one of the last days the TurtleCam recored in San Francisco – the 2005 summer solstice!

Thanks to everyone for all the visits and feedback.
