A forum for members to offer for sale any Dragon related items to other members. DO NOT POST LINKS TO AUCTIONS. I will use this forum in the future to offer all my spare games to members of this site before they go on e-bay.

They say a package weights 19 pounds (= 8.6 kg), so shipping is expensive.
Shipping starts September 16 and my Tano Dragon arrived today.
It's DOA -> viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4393

On the USPS form stands "Total Postage Fees": 64,90 US $

It's opened by customs and i must not pay any extra import duty. It's arrived to the destination address.

When you pay for freight you're not only paying for the USPS service.

There is a handling fee. They guy need to get the box from the warehouse, pack it and bring that to the closest USPS branch.

It seems that the cadigital website is down now. Does anyone have the corresponding e-mail so that I can try and order a Tano Dragon? I feel this temptation to go to my mother's basement where my old Dragon & Coco3 stuff are packed, and try to switch everything on... but I'm afraid that some of it will be bricked, so I would need a replacement (yeah, strange feelings, I know) or some kind of redundancy before going that way.

Is the NTSC Tano Dragon any different from the usual Dragon 64? For instance, can you produce artefact colors like on the CoCo 1/2?

According to several people over at the CoCo mailing list, they have all been sold.

I emailed them last week about their D64s and was told:

" California Digital still has a significant
number of Tano Dragon 64 computers
available."

I sent the payment by Paypal, and was told:

"Funds received. Will ship this week. "

So, I'm guessing they haven't sold out...

I've just received my Tano Dragon 64 from the California Digital - so they definitely hadn't sold out.

Just got to get it to work now...

It confused me a bit, because the "power switch" isn't. It's a TV channel select switch. The power switch is on the transformer box...

I think it's working - my logic analyzer shows the 6809's address bus doing reasonable things - but I can't get video out. I've got a composite -> VGA converter (http://www.avtoolbox.co.uk/avt3340.shtml) which should handle NTSC as well as PAL. On my PAL D32 it works fine, but I get nothing out of the D64 :-( My oscilloscope shows something that looks as if it could be video coming out of the monitor port, so I guess it's the composite -> VGA converter that can't handle the output for some reason; I haven't got any other NTSC source to test it with.
