Howdy folks, its been a while since Ive posted here and hopped online with the DreamPi and all. Its been a few years since I first had my VA1 Dreamcast modified (240mhz switch, BIOS, Internal VGA + 3.5mm Mod w/ Switch), I've been itching to get my Dreamcast upgraded again since better things have come out in the last 3 years. Using my VGA-HDMI Atlona upscale box was the best you could do back in the day. But now with everything from direct DC-HDMI cables that kinda work, to the beautiful DCHDMI mod box that finally offers proper digital video and audio with correct aspect/scaling, I feel its time to get back into it.
Basically I'm looking to send my DC into a retro game store or to a modder to get even better video out of the system, reduce heat, and improve cooling/reliability. I know there is a shop in NY that does this, but really don't want to have to send my system across country if I don't have to.
I was thinking of getting the DCHDMI installed (and possibly removing my VGA mod mod if it conflicts), Picopower Supply, Noctua fan, and rechargeable battery. (maybe one day I'd do the crazy internal DreamPi/Wifi/Network Adapter mod to provide internal wifi access to the dreamcast, but thats later lol)
I live in the LA/OC area, anyone able to recommend a good shop or person up to the task?
I know the mod boards come and go depending on inventory, so I will likely have to collect my mods first, but I know I'm not good enough to install them.
