If you have keyboard problems, check out Best Electronics or B&C, both great A8 retailers online.

Enjoy your A8 system, lots of great stuff on the format :)

The 130XE has both an RF jack and AV port. It came new in the box with just an RF cable and switchbox. The RF video signal is amazingly clear on my 130, better than the composite from an XEGS.

With the proper cable for the monitor port you can get composite or s-video (luma/chroma) with monaural audio. I bought a couple of these (http://shop.ebay.com/atari-commodore-n-morestore/m.html?_nkw=atari+cable+130*&_sacat=0&_trksid=p3911.m270.l1313&_odkw=atari+130*&_osacat=0) cables off eBay recently and was very pleased with the quality.

Also, I'm moving this topic over to our new Classic Computing Forum. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask there. It needs the activity. :)
