    Hi,

    I picked up a ZX Spectrum 128K about 8 years ago from the UK (DC area here)
    but there was no PSU with it. This week I ordered a SCART cable to get it attached to my Sony PVM, a power supply, and a DibMMC (is that the name?)
    cart for SD access to tape images and memory dumps. Anxious to get to playing with the unit. Comes with an SD loaded wit hthings, so I guess I'm set as far as games and demos.

    Will report back after getting it going.

    DivMMC I think
    I bought a grey Speccy myself.
    With a video cable, and after that a DivMMC.

    I still have my Sinclair 1000 in the box that I got in the early 80's along with the whopping 16k RAM expander. Then around the early 2000's I bought
    a backup Sinclair 1000 with a 16k RAM expand also in the box. Back then I figured in the future I might need a backup/spares Sinclair for my original. LOL

    I have on my list of projects to convert the RF out to Composite but I have so many other projects I hope to get to this one before end of the year. ;)
