TI84+ Generating Video!!
« on: October 27, 2011, 05:11:00 am »
I really don't know if it's possible to generate a proper 1-bit video signal with a TI 84+, but I ran some tests and this is my best result:

It alternates the linkports' state rapidly, but it's still too slow to generate a full white screen. I used AXE, but I think I have to use very optimized ASM to generate better video. Even then it won't be possible to do anything else but video playback.

Ben Ryves already did a proof-of-concept to that effect. Have fun---projects like this can really teach you a lot.

Yes I did :( Pure optimized asm might do the trick, cuz I got big white scanlines when I rubbed the wire over the battery

Interesting. I'M curious how much this can be pushed in terms of graphical display. I remember seeing Benryves' project a few years ago and was amazed.

By the way does this work only on PAL TVs or will it work on NTSC ones too?

It's actually easier on ntsc tv's cuz it's a lower frequency thats needded. I really dunno if it matters since modern tv's support both
