There was discussion of this product on one of the Amiga boards. Opinions
were mixed, but the Amiga produces a variety of video modes and perhaps
some were just troublesome for scan conversion. I have never used the
Ambery unit, but my other low-cost RGB converter (Wei-Ya ACV-011) does a
great job on the CoCo. So, it's possible that this guy is workable.
FYI: The only thing I've ever seen that handles Amiga interlaced modes
properly is the Highway (aka Cyp) Model 100 - a considerably more
expensive unit (>$200).
