The SVI.738 manuals on the Tomas Karlsson site, mirrored at the 'samdal' page, were scanned by me in 2001.

I did scan the whole user manual, and the circuit diagrams in the service manual. The other pages of the service manual were either covered in the user guide or general MSX information, I left these out. I did not (and regret that now) scan the CP/M BIOS pages, quite a lot of work.

The http://msx.hansotten.com/special-msx-hardware/svi-738-xpress/ Spectravideo SVI.738 X’Press page on my MSX site contains all the information I once had collected and scanned on this nice machine.

My main computer in the 80ties, running CP/M with remote videoterminal via serial.
I have owned three, one newly bought and converted to MSX-2 and more changes, an 'Henrik Gilvad' adapted to MSX-2+ with 1MB memory and an original unaltered one.
