Thursday, April 15, 2010, 06:44 PMI found a nice lcd display on eBay, with 2 composite video inputs, and a 12V power connector.
No remote, no buttons, simply give it 12V, and feed a video signal:
It's only 3.5" in diagonal, but the resolution is 640x480, and the colors are very good!
And the best thing: it only costs less then 21 euro!
Here's a YouTube video I made, where I put the lcd in the place of the +2B's cassette recorder:
Search for: "3.5" TFT Color LCD Car Reverse Monitor Aluminum panel" on eBay (worldwide, because it's sold from Hong Kong).
Sunday, April 4, 2010, 06:12 PMSomeone flashed his DivIDE to ESXDOS, and asked me how to get back to FATWare.
So I got my ESXDOS rom from the shelve, swapped it with my +DivIDE rom, and checked it out.
It's not that hard:
1. Get the FATWare flasher from somewhere
2. Put it on your (FAT formatted) CF card
3. Start ESXDOS with that CF card
4. Use: .TAPEIN FATWAR~1.TAP
5. Use: LOAD ""
This will load the flasher program, so you can flash FATWare again.
~ = extended mode symbol shift A.
Your filename of the flasher may be different when you use another flasher .TAP file (e.g. the 128K versions from Velesoft).
Sunday, November 29, 2009, 04:30 PMI'm working on a document that describes how to make a composite video output on the ZX Spectrum +2A / +2B / +3.
The document also describes how to enhance the composite video signal on the 128K heatsink model and grey +2.
Here's a half finished version: I hope to have the complete document ready next week.

Sunday, April 19, 2009, 08:30 AMHey, I found this keyboard at my daddy's room!
Hmmm, these function keys are very hard to press...
And what is that strange transparent room? Is it a USB hub?
Can this keyboard take some pressure?
I wonder if the keys can come off..
