They actually came back in stock a week ago, but I’ve been too busy to actually write about it.
New in this version is that you can enable/disable 5V for the Tri-Sync Helper with a switch instead of a solder jumper. There are a few other differences as well, like the type of OLED screen used – but nothing that affects the use or performance of the device.
The reason this article is a bit late is that the response has been incredible, in a week I have shipped over 50 of these – I was hoping for maybe 20. It got to the point where I ran out of FedEx shipping supplies, and a few orders got delayed a couple of days.
Another thing I was not prepared for was the demand for Tri-Sync Helpers, I had 18 in stock prepared – but they went away in a day. The Tri-Sync Helper is the only product still made manually, and to make matters worse – it actually has a quite a few components on it despite it’s size. To resolve this shortage, I’m currently investigating if they can be professionally assembled. It may be a little tricky as the pins of the VGA connector is pretty close to other components – no problem if done by hand, but may pose an issue for automatic assembly. I will know more in a week or so. If you’re interested in a Tri-Sync Helper, please drop me a message via the contacts page and I will add your name to a notify list so you will be notified by email once they are available.
Lastly, DO CHECK OUT the bundle promotion consisting of a Jammafier & Retro Scaler A1 – it’s in my opinion the perfect combo for VGA only JVS cabs like the Naomi Universal.
