Maybe the computer was used as a slideshow in a reception with the program Viewtext and connected to two TVs.

OK, some Good News for me.

I removed the Gold Socket, that I assumed was Composite Out, was actually some 2nd TV additional RF Out that was Re-routed around the Modulator.

I De-Soldered it and Removed the Gold socket.

But this left me with an unsightly Round Hole in the RIGHT Side of my TS 1000!

Oh what to do?

I decided to install a Reset Button in this Hole, just needed a Larger Washer and she Fits Nicely! ;)

I would like to Up-Load some Pictures, but it does Not seem to Work for me!

I am using JPEG Images and have Minimised the Images to 43.3 KB. Is this still too Large or something?

Have you tried using an image hosting site like Imgur?

Yep, tried that Many Times, and all I get is...

"Filename File comment Size Status"

Is it because I am still using Windows XP ???

I don't Like Change, C'mon, I still use a ZX81 for God's Sake! :roll:

Hmm - when you click on the Attachments - I assume you see the add files button and have tried adding a file.

What is the extension on the file (jpg or jpeg?)

It might be your browser - try clearing the cache. Which browser are you using?

I think pictures can not have too big size (800x600 is okay, maybe 1024x768 as well) and size must be below 1MB. But usually a warning is displayed if attachment does not meet the requirements.

Looks like I might have fried my TS1000. Trying to give it a composite video mod and it doesn't seem to be working! But I did get the 16k ram back for it!
