I finally pitched·my old Commodore 64 during a cleanup at work. I had been saving it for "just the right application" that never came. I liked·its direct output to a TV set for displaying text and data. Does anyone know of an existing module that would take text & numerical data from a BS2-class chip (SEROUT commands) and generate an NTSC signal to display them on a standard analog TV? I imagine it would act something like a serial LCD. Plenty of nice old TVs·to pick from, since people are getting rid of them as fast as their monster trucks and SUVs.

erco,

I've got one on the way. You can see the proto in this thread (http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=736738) (about a third of the way down). You will also be able to upload Propeller programs to it via your Stamp — no PropPlug required.
