    Thumbs up Ratte Auto Monitor Switch

    A new batch of 20pcs of the Ratte Auto Monitor Switch is on the way. If you have an Amiga with RTG and Indivision or other scandoubler, this is the One switch to use. Instead of having two cables from your Amiga to either two monitors or an external monitor switch, this will do it internally meaning only one cable to one screen.

    All units has been tested before shipped and please note that the installation will require knowledge on working with hardware (ESD protection etc).

    All credits goes to Ratte for releasing this awesome item as a DYI.

    *Please note that some RTG cards and Native Amiga on Amiga 3000 requires routing of the cable from outside to inside.

    ALL SOLD OUT!

    Total available count is 0pcs (22 Sold / 0 Reserved)


    Important! Color on VGA connector is black in the first batch and blue in the second and third batch.

    Price
    Package 1) €36 + Shipping, Includes:

    • Ratte Auto Monitor Switch
    • CIA Adapter
    • One cable for Native (either Indivision ECS, Indivision AGA MK1 or Indivision AGA MK2cr)
    • One cable for RTG (VGA or BVision/CVision)


    Package 2) €40 + Shipping, Includes:

    • Ratte Auto Monitor Switch
    • CIA Adapter
    • One Indivision AGA MK2 Adapter
    • One cable for RTG (VGA/CVision/BVision etc)


    I accept payment with Paypal as gift (else +4%).

    New version of Indivision AGA MK2cr cable


    FAQ
    Q: I do not have any Indivision / Scandoubler installed internally in my Amiga, can I use the Ratte Auto Monitor switch anyway?
    A: Yes, but you will need to have a DB23-to-DB15 converter for the RGB port on your Amiga. Also, the connector for this will be a cable going from the outside to the inside.

    Q: Does the Ratte Auto Monitor Switch work as a scandoubler?
    A: No, it is only a monitor switch.

    Q: Can I use the Native Amiga from an Amiga 3000?
    A: Yes, but you need to route the cable from the outside to the inside.

    Q: I have an Indivision AGA MK2, what cable do I need?
    A: You will need "Package 2" since the Indivision AGA MK2 requires an adapter that you connec to the original Indivision AGA MK2 cable.

    Q: Can I use a socket "A" cable in socket "B" on the Ratte Auto Monitor Switch?
    A: Yes, from 2016-01-01 you can. The cables are now made to fit both A and B socket.

    Q: What ROM version is required?
    A: For 100% compatibility ROM version 3.1+ is recommended (thanks hewlet).

    Q: Where do I get the installation guide?
    A: You can download it here.

    Q: I can't find the installation manual in my package?
    A: To keep the shipping cost down, I had to put it as a PDF. Also, it is much easier to distribute the latest version that way.

    Q: Where can I download the recommended SwitchControl software?
    A: You can download it here.

    Q: I only get a picture on "B" (RTG) and not "A" (Native) while using an Indivision MK2/MK2cs?
    A: Be sure to use DVI/VGA or VGA output setting in the Indivision config tool

    Q: Can I use the Ratte Auto Monitor Switch with the Vampire II accelerator's HDMI RTG?
    A: Yes, you can use a HDMI-2-VGA Adapter as mfilos did in his blog here (not included). You can buy the adapter here.

    Q: What packet should I chose if I have a Vampire 2 for Amiga 600 and a Indivision ECS?
    A: Chose package #1 with a Indivision ECS cabe + VGA. You need to purchase a HDMI-2-VGA adapter since it is not included. Suggested cable can be found here.
