Sounds like a good idea. I we should work together. I've got a 600xl,
800xl and an 800 I can work with. Unfortunately I only have the one
Commodore monitor. But while finding my Atari 800XL I did find the
TV box and cables. They really look new (shocking). I have some disks
still but I really want to get the Pi2SIO setup.
