Hi, here are somes pictures of the unboxing and woking V500+

I find the new black box awesome, before you open it you already know that we are not laughting :-)

and then I saw for the first time of my life a red antistatic bag. What a nice atention !
The vampire itself looks good too, this is really a nice piece of hardware :

After a little time, the vampire was mounted in my trusted Amiga 500+. I've already prepared an 32 Gb CF card with the same OS as my V600 :

And like magic, tada !

Well done! Received mine last week, been fun setting it up though still faffing with picasso96, can only get 640x480 so far. Noticed the INdivision, does that work okay with the Vampire?

Why. Do you get graphic glitches...then get yourself a hdmi repeater for 15 bucks and it will work with higher res!

Thanks radfoo!
What's your problem exactly with P96? You don't have the other resolutions, or you can't use them?
By the way, the Indivision work well with the Vampire. Only the config tool muss be ran without the Vampire installed, but this is not an issue (you usually only need to run it once).

@Winwood
Yes. the HDMI repeater is a good solution if you experience some graphic glitches. I have tried myself and I can tell that the signal is better with the repeater. So in certain case it can help to enhance the result.

I'm using my A500 with a Panasonic TV, just can't get the right P96 Mode settings, picture goes blank when I use the appropriate settings from the TV manual. Need to try it with a monitor really. Don't get graphic glitches, at least not at 640x480 its rock solid. When others have glitches has lower modes worked okay and not higher resolutions?

Thanks for the info, might get an Indivision then.

I would try with a monitor first. Tvs sets are not well know for being tolerant with the input signal. But anyways, if you experience somes horizontal glitches in higer resolution, my advice is to grab an HDMI booster, it's help a lot.

I had the same issue with my 12+ years old 1080i Samsung TV. What I did was boot up a linux machine that had hdmi out and connected it to the tv,
then I ran the command "xrandr --verbose" in a terminal window.

This exposed the variables my TV was expecting and I was able to get 1280x720 going without any issues.
