Thanx! Not sure if you noticed but in the beginning of that vid is the Archer opened up in front of the t.v.

PS: Highly recommend checking out the full album that song is off of. Xander Harris - Urban Gothic. Gets massive play in my werskhop. Top notch sci-fi horror futuristic soundtrack music. :sb:

Well, I drilled the enclosure, made a lame panel design and also tested the modification board's features.

There were too many controls/jacks to leave it without a legend, so I whipped this up nice and quick!

Tomorrow, I will install and wire everything :)

Next step: make it in a Euro module (and probably waste a ton of depth or width with the PCB)

Hehe...you mean "pro-cessor" instead of "praw-cessor"? :bananaguitar:

That's probably my weird accent that some American folks tell me I have :)

I have made a high resolution scan of the video color processor schematic for everyone :) Make sure to click and blow the image up before downloading...it's huge! :cloud:

Tachyons or anyone have a scan of the schematics for >Archer> Super Video Processor Model No. 15-1276? Just bought one at the thrift and am hoping to make some connections.

I do have a schematic for it but I do not have a scanner. Give me a few days and will try to get it scanned at a friends house and up hear.

I never wound up making a project out of it no! :waah: I still plan to venture into video synthesis for DIY projects one of these days but right now am tied up in the euro audio market :3

Definitely I would like to make a PCB for something like this but it's going to be a bit until I get around to it.

Any thought about releasing your schematics for those of us who would protoboard it?

Sorry, the schematics don't really exist in any presentable form yet. I just made this pretty quickly based on reverse engineering and have doodles in my sketchbook and stuff. :deadbanana:

This is a really interesting project.
Anyone care to share some bend points? I can't find any infos about how to bend these reliably.
