  1. Does this carry sound on the Spectrum 128k (toastrack) and Harlequin 128? If not what is the best way to utilise sound thru TV?

    • Not yet, and most probably not with the current Raspberry Pi Zero board on it, since it is not fast enough to also process audio.
      There was a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 released a couple of weeks ago, and my developer has spent some time looking into that as a successor to the Zero (1) for more features like audio.

      Most ZX-HD users have external speakers or an amplifier to output audio.
      Some TV’s allow you to use an analogue audio input when an HDMI video input is used.

  2. Hi there, I was just wandering if this device will be ok to use with a 4k t.v? Thank you very much and have a great day.

  3. Works perfectly the ZX-HD on the Toastrack. The only thing it gets a little warmer on the expansion connector. Maybe it’s because the DivMMC Pro One is behind it. Is it possible to also place the ZX-AY in between it. Have now no sound through the MIC output. Other than that I’m overjoyed that the Toastrack is working again. Bought it as faulty and thanks to the ZX-HD it has come back to life.

    • Have now two days and the picture quality is very sharp on my BenQ BL2420PT 24 inch HDMI monitor. It looks like a new experience and the ZX-AY works smooth with the ZX-HD and the DivMMC Enjoy! Pro One. Thanks Ben for bringing my Toastrack to life. It’s a big step forward than on my ZX Spectrum 48K. Which also works smooth with the ZX-HD. For now I enjoy intense with the 128K Games and Demos. Have to have the Toastrack motherboard checked with you next time. Hope that my new Order would be great to use in my ZX Spectrum Plus case.
