Besides the other usual pre-Thanksgiving hullabaloo,  I spent way too much of the day working on my GBS8820 box.  It is just a standard cga-to-vga scalar that I picked up off eBay for about $30.00 but I am modifying to use in conjunction with a cheapo scart to YUV converter.  OK, I know I don't HAVE to modify anything to make them work together but where is the fun in that. :) My build allows for the use of a single AC adapter, and some direct wiring  to make it easier to fit into a small project box.  Check it out here.
