Default Aurora Converters shipping status

Hi,
This is just a note to say that I have another batch of converters underway, and expect them to be available sometime towards the middle or end of December. The prices will remain the same.

Cheers,
Darryl

Hi Trevor,
I wasn't going to make any additioanl NTSC units in this batch. I still have three left from the last batch, so hopefully that will be enough.

Just a quick status update: One part was on backorder and is finally scheduled to ship this week. This will push the next batch of converters out until early January.

I'll hopefully be in a position to buy one of these excellant units in the new year. If I remember correctly you only deal with Paypal, which means I will have to do battle with them to open an account again.

AFAIK you can pay a PayPal invoice with a Credit Card without opening a PayPal account.

Yes, you can do it that way.

Just a quick note to let anyone concerned know that the boards have finally arrived, and I will be starting to program, test and final assemble them this weekend. Between the Holidays and backordered parts, this was the longest build yet!

Hi Chip,
If you were asking how many different standards the converter supports, Steve's (Panrock) link is good. By far the 405A is the most popular, with the others coming in at a small percentage.

I don't have exact numbers readily available, but out of just over 200 shipped, about 160 have been 405A models, with all the other models combined making up the remainder. Second place is probably tied for the 819E, 441E and 30/32 models.
