For customers residing outside of
Europe or VAT-registered companies the price is reduced to 938,79 euros !

As an early adopter in the U.S., I can verify that this is what I paid for the A1222 board. It includes 4G RAM, AmigaOS4.1, Enhanncer v2.2 and a USB recovery stick.

Are there any reliable picture viewers for Amiga OS41?

I'm beta testing an updated version of LoView picture viewer which should be released in a week or two. It's Hollywood based and is a very nice picture viewer and is the best I've found at handling animated gif and apng files. It is also very easy to create slide shows while optionally playing music. In addition it allows many effects to be applied to the picture.

I also really like FastView. It has an option to show single pictures. It also allows manipulation of the graphics files.

Check OS4Depot for both. The current version of LoView on OS4Depot will throw a requester when started because it was written with an older version of Hollywood and the GUI that it uses. The requester can be clicked on to bypass it. This will allow you to try it out and see if you like it before the newer version is released.

€1,600? Seeing how AmigaKit and A-EON seem to be doing their best to let their so called "Early Adopters" be the last ones to know what the rest of the world already seem to know - do you have a credible source for this, or is it just pure speculation on your part?

Are you an early adopter? If yes, then I would suggest you email AAA Technologies and inquire about cost and availability to get real information. If not, then I'm sure there will be real information out when the boards are available.

Once again I'll repeat that AmigaKit and A-EON aren't the ones to contact about obtaining an A1222 system. AAA Technologies is the one selling them and they actually set the final price for the systems. Early adopters do get a discount.

I have contacted AAA Technologies a few times now as an Early Adopter and I can say they have been very responsive to all my emails. I'll also say that I have already purchased an A1222 bare board with extra ram (8G) and it was significantly below 1,600 euro even with shipping from France to the U.S. I don't know what a full system would cost, and of course I don't have to pay VAT being in the U.S. but that's what I do know first hand.

My suggestion for anyone who is serious about wanting to know about the A1222, is to contact AAA Technologies via email, early adopter or not.

It is more expensive than I had hopped but I think is is a better value than the SAM460, even if a bit more expensive. I also really wanted the small form factor.

A1222 production has begun nearly 2 months ago, so, we should receive our first stock this month at best, in november at worst,

I can't really verify this by any first hand information, but I believe when that statement was made, it meant they arrived from the manufacture to ACube, who I believe is testing the boards, before sending them to AAA Technologies for selling. I believe the one I quoted was when AAA Technologies would receive them from ACube after testing. At least that timeline seems to make sense. Until they are actually shipped, and someone receives one, who knows for sure.

It is not easy for potential customers (or folks that have pre-ordered) to understand what is going on with the A1222.

Very true Hopefully that will change once the boards are actually available to ship. They might actually have their hands full for a bit filling pre-orders. At least I hope they have a decent backlog of orders already. I know the price is limiting but who knows...

I found the post that was made on discord. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by posting this here, but since Discord is a public system, I think it should be OK. If someone tells me different I'll delete this post. Here is the post:

Oh? Since Discord is closed off / propriety software that the owners seemingly refuse to port to AmigaOS, it's certainly is an odd platform for A-EON to make announcements on.

First thing is A-EON is not AAA Technologies and, as far as I know, there was no official announcement on discord. I think one of the AAA Technology guys posted some indicator that it would be soon but I don't remember the exact wording. You can connect to Discord via a web browser, unfortunately, not an Amiga web browser.

As an early adopter, I can tell you that I emailed AAA Technologies in January and asked about an estimate on availability and they replied, saying that they expected to receive the boards at the end of January and would begin contacting early buyers when they receive them.

It's my hope (not an AAA Technologies statement) that means maybe they will start shipping in February. I'm sure things can still happen that would delay things further though.

I tried, unsuccessfully, a few times over the years to get someone to update Mendocer as I used to use it with SimpleSub. Being unsuccessful, I ended up convertine SImpleSub t use ffmpeg instead. What is is you want to do with mencoder that you can't do with ffmpeg? .....or is it just that Mencoder might be faster? (Not really sure if it is or not.)

Thanks for the tip... I already thought that option but abandoned it as I would then loose the 0 and 9 keys which I need with other programs.

First, glad to hear you go to working to your satisfaction!

I don't quite understand your statement above though. How do you lose use of the 0 and 9 keys. All your doing is translating the multimedia keycodes, so they send the same codes the 0 and 9 key produce. Basically, your adding additional 0 and 9 keys. The normal 0 and 9 keys aren't affected at all and still work as normal.

Anyway, Using the Arexx port works great as well, but be aware that it will only work on the first instance of MPlayer that is started. If you have MPlayer running twice, it won't work on the second instance. Also be aware that if MPlayer crashes or doesn't close right for some reason (which I have seen in the past), you will need to kill the MPlayer.1 Arexx port manually or reboot the system. If you just run MPlayer again it will see that the MPlayer.1 port is used and will use MPlayer.2 as the Arexx port. In which case your solution of using the MPlayer.1 port of course won't work. Of course you probably would rarely run into these situations, so it's not a big deal.

I'm alredy using AllKeys, but I still cannot figure how to make MPlayer to use the multimediakeys directly...

Use AllKeys to translate your volume up key to the 0 key and to translate the volume down key to 9. The zero and nine keys control MPlayers volume, so translating your multimedia keys to zero and nine works. I tested it on my system and it works great.

On my system I use the program "Mixer" or "Nemosound" audio mixer, so I have my multimedia volume keys sent the arexx commnads for volume up and down for those programs. That way the multimedia volume keys control the volume for all programs, not just mplayer. I also have the mute key mapped so I can mute the sound as well.

Maybe adding support for mapping the complete IDCMP_EXTENDEDKEYBOARD codes to MPlayer's input.conf would be a lot of work, but adding some defaults for the most common multimedia keys (I don't remember if they are in subclass SET1 or HID), incl. volume +/-, pause/play, forward/backward, etc., in MPlayer should be easy.

If what your suggesting is to add support for the multimedia keys into MPlayer source code, that makes me a bit nervous. I have those keys setup to control other things and I would be afraid of interactions. For example, I might want my ">>|" key to go to the end of the currently playing video, or I might want it to go to the next video in a playlist. If you code it in the source code you have taken that option away from the user.

Is it possible to use the multimedia keys (Volume down and up) of a 110-key keyboard for volume control with MPlayer?

As Joerg stated, Non VANILLA or RAWKEYS can't be mapped, but you can use AllKeys from OS4Depot to assign the media keys on keyboards. I have my multimedia volume keys mapped to control the volume level of both Nemosound and Mixer, (sometimes I switch between the two) so that they control the volume for all programs, including Mplayer.

Link to AllKeys

AllKeys was written by Daniel Westerberg and works great. I have all my multimedia keys assigned with it.

@mplayer pause

I did some testing on this today and I saw the same problem.
In full screen space bar or p will not pause the video.

It happens when using the -vo comp, comp_yuv and comp_yuv2 drivers.
-vo sdl and gl video drivers work fine.

This is with version:

Note that this version does not have this problem:

Re: Upgrade X1000 to RX560 or not?

Thanks for all the inputs.
I wrote a script to be able to easily change between RadeonHD.chip v3.7 and 5.14. It also enables and disables the "VA/RadeonHD_drv_video.library". I did this to make it easy to switch back and forth to aid in troubleshooting the v5.14 instablility problems I had experienced in the past.

So, I've been running v5.14 and I haven't experienced any instability issues this time. I must of disabled what ever was causing the issue sometime in the past.

Now, I have to decide if I want to upgrade to use the RX560 card. After looking into it closer,. I have concerns about losing the ability to access the boot menu. I do have an emergency system partition setup to be able to boot from if something goes wrong with my main partition. I also have a boot system that is setup with a vanilla, unchanged, version of AmigaOS4 Final Update2 for troubleshooting software issues. Not sure I want to lose that capability.

I know I could setup a serial cable and control booting from that, but I don't really have anything setup with a terminal to run it too. I suppose I could use my laptop or maby my android tablet or phone, with some kind of adapter, but I have no idea what that process looks like. Is there a video somewhere that shows someone booting over a serial port setup? What cable and adapter would I need?

@AmigaSociety

Hi TJ. Enjoying watching your experiences with your X5000. Seeing MorphOS in action on it is intresting. I've read all the good thing about the Wayfair browser and it was intresting to see it in action. Seems it does have a site compatability advantage over Odyssey, but boy is it slow. Maybe you'll discover ways to speed it up. Anyway, it's intresting to see it. Thanks.

@all

Thanks for the feedback. Since others don't seem to have stability problems with Radeon.chip v5 on their X1000's, I'm thinking I should probably see if I can identify the cause for that first.

I suspect maybe it's a setting I'm using GUI Preferences. Maybe in the, Options, Effects or Controls sections.

I did try changing the INTERUPTS setting in the monitor icon file but still incurred the crashes. My BOARDNAME tooltype is set to Radeon RV730. I assume that 's correct for an ATI RadeonHD 7750 graphics card?

I don't use Candy or the screen blankers, so I can eliminate those as the cause.
I do run LimpidClock. Has anyone seen issue with that program?
Guess I could start by eliminating all things in Workbench Startup.

Any other ideas on what might be causing the instability?
