    Is it possible using an analog tv receiver such as this to connect, say, an Amiga 1200? The EyeTV EZ blurb suggests you can connect a console, therefore an Amiga would work, right?

    How cool would that be having a window on your desktop playing classic Amiga games using a real Amiga?

    Or am i nuts/dreaming*

    Rather than emulation, I was thinking more in terms of the viablity of displaying the signal produced by the Amiga through an analog tv receiever i.e. would it work?

    The Amiga has composite and regular aerial output so you should be fine.

    I find it amazing how consoles were born with composite outputs (Amiga, NES) yet they were ditched for aerial output until this gen. what happened?

    Hmm, I think I might dust off my trusty A500, not so sure what the floppy's will be like after all these years though.

    If they're anything like mine they will be fine! I've been playing through some old GB and Amiga games recently and they still play like a charm!

    I've heard it said that Amiga was perhaps the best OS ever created? Is this true?

    That's encouraging, only problem is they're stored in the loft and what with the heat today!

    In it's day yes (multi tasking etc), probably a reason I bought a Mac.

    Edit: Looking for my Rocket Ranger disks and that cardboard wheel thing :D
