Update!
The Tecnobytes V9990 Powergraph light is a cartridge based on Sunrise GFX9000 for any generation of MSX computers, built around a Yamaha V9990 Video Display Processor. The never released Yamaha V9978 VDP (Video Display Processor), which was supposed to be in the MSX3, is the precursor of the V9990.
Compared to the V9990 Powergraph, the light version has the same specifications but ships only with a male DE-15 subminiature RGB connector instead. The RGB output of this new version remains VGA*** pinout compatible, including 5v on the pin 9.
It will bring the same quality as before, but in a small size cartridge.

The s-video / composite video adapter comes included in the package at no additional cost.

The shipping forecast for the new batch is November 2018.

I received mine from the first batch two weeks ago. It is a solid build piece of hardware for a fair price. Keep in mind to order the SVHS/RCA adapter board separately.

My ChibiAkumas game should be ready in a couple of months (with V9990 support), I'm hoping the V9990 will arrive in time for me to test it!

Testing on real hardware is a very good idea for V9990, the emulation is not perfect, issues are still found quite regularly and also the real hardware has some quirks that don’t occur in emulation (like palette splits causing glitches).

Hi Rogerio,

Are you providing track number to the people who we ordered one? I don't receive yet any email about it, and it's a good idea to check status in courier company to avoid reject and others problems. Please, can you provide it?

Regards and thanks,
Raúl.

Not quite regular VGA as it also has CVBS out and S-Video out on the same connector.
Pinout could be:

I think the pinout has changed, looking at the breakout board I have (and using a test-meter), it looks like composite is now pin 15, and Svideo is 4 and 12...

I just tried 2 different DeLock VGA->SCART cables but no luck. No picture (I am using a SCART to HDMI converter).
Does anyone know a working VGA-SCART cable? I'd like to try out the RGB output.

Thanks for the link. I've ordered a few SCART/VGA cables to test with.

I have now a nice picture using a GBS 8200 (V4.0) with 2 male-male VGA cables.

I also have a GBS 8200 (V4.0) connected with 2 male-male VGA cables but no signal.
One male VGA cable connected to vga out and go to monitor one male cable from Powergrah lite to VGA in of GBS 8200.
Don't work. How did you make it work?

I ordered cables with external (one with USB and one with HDD plug) power options needed for the RGB switch signal.
