Hello Retro People,

I'm looking for a 13-14" CRT monitor for my 8-bit Atari computer (composite / s-video).
In the order of preference:

- Commodore 1702
- JVC TM-.... (some variations of this were used in CCTV systems in Ireland apparently)
- Sony PVM/BVM

If you have something like this or saw something like this in a shop around Dublin, please let me know. (I looked a lot and found nothing so far)

Thank you.

I'm doing that (and a lot more) since weeks now. Maybe someone here has one or knows about a physical shop that might have one.

For much that is awesome and, importantly, affordable it is important to just be patient, eventually everything turns up, or at least most things do.
The older a thing is, the fewer working examples remain.
I fear just how many collectables, including computers, consoles, displays, software and accessories got chucked in recycle bins, skips or ended in a landfill.
So, no easy one stop shops for retro goodness, unless you are going to spend big bucks on sources like eBay at buy it now prices.
Just watch Adverts and Donedeal, trawl Sunday markets and charity shops, your efforts will pay off and the treasures be all the more precious for it.

Golden Discs in Dundrum (one where HMV once was, not the Tesco thing they've going on) have last-gen and PS2 stuff for 5 games for 10 quid. Rake of shovelware, but I found it worth picking through.

Any luck with 3DS/DS games or no dice?

Actually picked up three DS games mesmeslf. There's a couple of 3DS titles in there, with one of the Laytons, I think, but it mainly consisted of DS, Wii, PS3, PSP, PS2, PC and 360. Couple of PS4 games there too (2-for-10er), but FIFA-calibre stuff, from what I saw.

The amount of shovelware you've to skim through is something else, but it's half the fun. Haven't seen this many copies of High School Musical 3 on the Wii since every f***ing charity shop in the nation.

there's a German guy selling lots of the manual version of the Bandridge 5-way scart switchers, and the bidding is generally ending at under a tenner.

postage costs are on request, but if it's not too steep, there could be a bargain to be had

(he also does a 3-way automatic one that tends to sell even cheaper)

The audio out on the front of them is really handy for tapping audio from a console when using a PVM/BVM that has no in built speakers.
