« on: Today at 03:00:31 PM »
Price (Including postage,paypal fees)
£20 to UK,2nd Class large letter
£23 to Europe,Airmail (non tracked)
£25 to rest of the world,Airmail (non tracked)


I am taking the preorders here on this forum.You need to create an account and post here.

I need you to answer 4 questions for preordering,

1.Have you tried the wired composite cable with your screen/TV/monitor,did you get good results?

2.Have you checked the AV port on your C64,do you have the live 5V?

3.Are you patient enough to wait while it gets built and posted?

4.Which part of the world are you from?

Please don't post your e-mail address here.Don't use your real name either.

As I am the admin,I can see your e-mail address so I can contact you.

Do you want to place your C64 on your coffee table and enjoy retro gaming in your living room on a massive TV set without running a cable from the C64 and the TV? This is it,what you've been waiting for.Make your beloved C64 portable.

It runs on 2.4Ghz frequency which is not that crowded as it used to be.Most internet modem routers are running on 5.8Ghz these days.
Your only enemy is bluetooth devices like phones,headsets even computer mice.If you turn them all of,you should get no interference.Unless you live in flats and your neighbours are using 2.4Ghz WI FI  >:(

The main problem we have with our 64's is,composite video out is non standart.Which leads to some TV's and monitors giving very good result,some are ok but not that good,bit of colour leak,dot crawl,shadowing and some are not working at all.

If you want to use this wireless kit,you have to try the wired composite cable with your screen first and find out if your TV can give good results.

If you get good result with the wired cable,you will get the exact same result with this wireless kit.

If not,please don't buy it.I am not accepting returns on this product.



Transmitter is powered by the pin 8 of the C64's AV port.Most C64C's have the 5V connected to the pin 8.But some breadbins with the very early boards are not connected.This is the reason before buying this kit,you have to make sure you have 5 volts on your AV port.

You will need a multimeter and have to stick 2 cables into the port while it is switched on.Be very careful,don't short it.



Black (Ground) to Pin2, Red (Positive) to pin 8

If you get 0V means it is not connected to live 5V.You need to modify the motherboard which requires some soldering skills and equipment.

If you get less than 4.7V or more than 5.2 volts,your PSU is on it's way out,replace it.

If you have any questions,please post it under this topic.

In that video,Flavio is using a windows emulator (Wine) for running the Audiotap.

Have a look at audiotaps github page,

Sorry,I can't help you any further as I am not a Linux user  :'(

If you want to use your computer for watching videos etc. while recording software to cassette tapes there is a trick.

Convert the TAP file to WAV file and play it with VLC media player.Go to audio options and audio device,choose the RECORD.

That is what I used.Just an ordinary superglue.I just checked the cassette in the video.It seems it is still holding fine.Glue didn't eat through the magnetic tape.

Best way to backup your tapes is capturing the audio with the Audacity.Save it as wav file and convert it to TAP using audiotap.You don't need to change any settings at all.

Test the TAP with FinalTap or Tapclean.Tapclean is more upto date and recognizes more loaders.

Thanks to Flavio web for making this video.

If you don't speak Italian,try the subtitles,works pretty well.

That's great news.I'm glad to hear that it worked well for you.

Interestingly I only need to go as far as volume 2 for reading tapes.

That is one of the minor issues that I need to look in to.Datasette is too loud,needs attenuation.

recorded it back to a new cassette

Hello Steve,

That whine sound is normal,turn down the microphone (READ) to level 2.

It seems like adapter is not making a good contact with the datasettes read pin.

Please check your connector to see if there is any bent ones.

I've done a bit of research.Step down voltage regulators are usually one single chip.But step up boosters needs a coil and few more chips.I want to keep the original casing for this adapter.I want to keep it simple and cheap.I don't want to reinvent the DC2N.

And also I don't think 1 volt can make a huge difference,as long as it can draw the current it needs.
