For all Commodore CDTV versions that have a socketed DIP Denise chip and the required physical space inside, a rather small adapter board can be used to extract the digital video signal (12 bit) to a 40-pin connector compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero. This can then be used with the RGBtoHDMI software to produce a perfect HDMI picture with very low latency (a few milliseconds at most).
Package included a totally full set (you do not need anything else):
- 1x RGB2HDMI Adapter specially made for Amiga CDTV (you can close top case normally)
- 1x Raspberry Pi Zero
- 1x 8GB micro SD card (already preloaded with all necessary files)
- 1x Mini HDMI male to Standard HDMI female adapter
- 1x 3D printed black trapdoor with 2 holes
- 1x Button on the cable with nut for making screenshoots
Quick installation (no soldering required at all):
- remove Denise chip from your Amiga
- put Denise chip into the RGB2HDMI adapter
- put RGB2HDMI together with Denise chip into Denise socket on your Amiga CDTV motherboard
- connect button on the cable into RGB2HDMI adapter
- put Raspberry Pi Zero into RGB2HDMI adapter
- put preloaded micro SD card into Raspberry Pi Zero micro SD slot
- connect mini HDMI adapter into Raspberry Pi Zero
- remove your old black back trapdoor and place 3D printed trapdoor with 2 holes
