So as you guys all know, the Apple-1 doesn't have the best video generation.

Well I have found that if you use these two items from Amazon daisy chained, they regenerated the signal and it can be recorded with a VCR or even captured using a cheap Roxio to DVD usb adapter for my mac.

This is a great breakthrough to find a combination which works, I have a couple of projects coming up that needed this to work. If not it would have been a giant pain to use a camcorder on a real monitor to avoid reflections and stuff...

Cheers,
Corey

Great discovery Corey,
I've been looking at a series of Apple][ to VGA converters that don't "blink" on the
monitor due to the inaccurate video timing.
