Origin 3200 Video Options

Unread postby r1200gsDave » Mon Sep 11, 2017 8:29 am

I have been looking for a V-Brick and they seem to be very rare. All of the docs I have read only talk about the G-Brick and the V-Brick. The documentation talks about other PCI cards but not a video card.

Is there a video card that can be used in the IX-Brick?

OK well I guess that confirms it, no other video options..... The hunt for a V-Brick continues.

It's possible to hack an X-brick : viewtopic.php?t=16721935

But it's certainly not for the faint of heart.

I believe Harry Goldsholl (dhjj on the forum) recently had an X-Brick for sale. I don't know if he still has it or not, or if he's even still in the reseller business. The last time I talked to him, it sounded like he was trying to divest himself from it...
