Does anyone know anything about these pattern generatos? I have them both and would like to do some mods, but not sure whether I should proceed.
So the 5514V is a video only generator, it can output composite video, or RGB via BNC plugs. The 5515 on the other hand is a full-function generator, that can do everything from test patterns to RF and teletext output even, however the one I have doesn't have the RGB module installed.
What I would like to do is to remove the entire RGB board from the 5514, and install it into the 5515. If you know the system, you know it's a modular bus-system inside. The RGB module is a 'standard plug' card, so I am fairly certain electronically it is compatible, however, I am not sure how the module actually works. Whether it is addressed, and would need a change of system ROM, or if the system is supposed to auto-detect the installed boards at startup.
If anyone has any info on this, do let me know. I would not like to start swapping things unless I know I can make it work.
What would be the sdvantage on the 5515 over the 5514 with having RGB output? Both generator have fixed 15,6kHz (SDTV) output rate. Otherwise usualy such generators create the RGBHV signals first (because that is the purest form of the signal) then they got it converted to RF, composite or whatever signals. So I guess you should have no problem installing the RGB module in the 5515.
The advantage is that the 5515 can do different standards (different PAL and NTSC standards) as well, plus it has a more versatile set of test patterns. It'd just be better to have a single generator for everything 'video' related
This set is rather weird in that regard, as there is no direct RGB on the mainboard, the actual RGB signal is being created on it's own separate daughterboard direct from digital signals, and the RF or Composite modulated thigns have their own daughterboards.

skydronelink: Hi Repairaj, I have the same issue, but I am not able to get the cap value, I can tell it is the same board but deffirent rev cause of the side CAP is not the same value ! any idea how I can get the right burnt cap value?

skydronelink: Hello Jerme, thank you for the those images, is there is any chance to get the C2 (Cap) value or an image for it ? Thank you in advance.

jbmeyer13: Wolfy's Marquee isn't working? Did you spill a pint on it and short the MB?

wolfman: Always the same sarkasm Kurt that's why I never checked in until now. I knew you wouldn't give me a cheerful answer so let you hang for a while. Removed the last part you probably are a decent guy Eye to Eye.
