As I posted in the pick-up thread, I recently bought an MVS MV1C for a decent price. I already own an MV1FS, but it’s kinda large - and the MV1C is significantly smaller.
I was planning on having an enclosure built out of wood, but I’ve since changed my mind and decided to go with this aluminium enclosure by Hammond (http://www.hammondmfg.com/1455.htm), specifically the black model 1455T2201BK which is a fantastic fit for the board. You can see the red variant used as a CMVS enclosure here: http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/neo-geo-mvs-mv1c-consolisation-cmvs/
I quickly hooked up 5v and video the other day, just to check it worked - and it does:
And yesterday I ordered all the parts:
Rather than hooking up the RGB lines straight to the video output, I’ll be doing it correctly by dropping the 3v lines down to 0.7v and then feeding them through to the THS7316 amp (commonly used in SNES/N64 mods). This results in a perfect spec output, same as what the AES does with the same initial video.
I’ll be also building my own Neobiosmasta which allows the easy install of a unibios. I’ve ordered the boards from oshpark as per usual and they were fabricated and dispatched to me last week.
So all going well, I should have this project done within the next two weeks. I’ll keep this thread updated with progress. Feedback and ideas would be appreciated!
