The MV1200 is an external scandoubler for use with all Amigas. It takes the standard Amiga PAL or NTSC output and scandoubles it for use on a PC type VGA/SVGA monitor. It supports full 24bit colour in all non 15Khz modes. A high precision TTL circuit used for pixel clock generation. The MV1200 also has an optional FlickerFixer module to promote interlaced screens to non-flickering displays. The MV1200 connects to the RGB Video out on the Amiga and should only be connected when the machine is switched off.

Once you have connected the MV1200 it may be necessary to "finetune" it for best picture quality, although by default it comes fine tuned for A1200s. The MV1200 should be plugged in and the Amiga switched on for at least 5 minutes before attempting this procedure to ensure that the MV1200 has reached operating temperature. Try to have as many vertical lines on the screen as possible, or load a picture which contains many alternate black and white lines. Use a small screwdriver to move the potentiometer labelled "Adjust". Please note this is a high performance multi-turn multi-precision potentiometer which can be turned about 20 times from end to end. In the middle of the range there is a distortion of the picture but if you turn it another 3 or 4 times the picture quality will increase. DO NOT forcibly turn it further when you encounter resistance. If you have problems with picture quality still, then close the jumper marked phase which is normally open.

In SuperHiRes mode, only every second pixel is displayed
All modes with a Horizontal frequency above 15Khz will be bypassed, but since some of these modes are also outside the VGA range, your monitor may not display them correctly.
Only 15Khz modes will be flickerfixed, other modes will be bypassed
Please ensure that the VGAOnly tool which is part of the monitor drivers, is executed prior to the monitor driver to ensure that Euro72 and Multiscan modes are fully VGA compatible.

Upgrading to a FlickerFixer

To upgrade you need two video-field memories of type OKI 518221Z-30 OR OKI 518222Z-30 in ZIP form.
Open the unit and insert the chips into the ZIP sockets, make sure the writing is facing the 23pin video connector
After fitting, gently bend them towards the 23pin connector to allow the case to close correctly
Open the FF-Ena jumper
Set the 222Mod jumper correctly, according to the FRAM type you used.
