Yay! Initial shots from the VSC!

So I got everything hooked up tonight, and the good news is that I have definitely made some progress!

It appears to work, although the video is currently scrolling with multiple video problems, but I definitely have something to work with!

  • I’m really not sure yet. If my initial look into it is right, I think there’s something going on with my four different banks.

    I have four dual-port RAMs and essentially write into one, and then read from it a line or so later.

    I have some concerns with synchronization where the output monitor might be “Blanking” but the input is still writing.

    I’ve been dealing with stuff in a “streaming fashion” completely irrespective of vertical sync. So the receiving data clock and transmitting clocks have no relationship.

    More on this later.
