Searching for the Amiga Genlock user manual

Hi all,

I recently found and installed an Amiga Genlock board into my Amiga 2000, and after much putzing around, I've gotten it working. However, I'm totally new to this device and don't really know what I'm doing yet.

Weirdly enough, I've had no luck at all finding the user manual for this board. I can find the technical / service manual easily enough, but I just can't seem to find the user manual, other than some old pics of the kit showing that it did indeed come with a real manual.

If anyone here can point me to the manual (and/or any other beginner-friendly resources for the Genlock board), I'd be very grateful!

Huxley

I can't provide a user manual but if you know the exact type you might get some more help online:

Try this:

Good call - mine is the "A2300/A2301" version seen in the first couple pics on that page. It's so interesting that so many common and obscure Amiga upgrades and peripherals are well documented online, but this official Commodore board seems to be a bit of a mystery, at least as far as its original documentation goes!

Thanks for the link - hopefully someone has a digitized version of the A2300/A2301 manual!

Funnily enough, only yesterday, I watched a GuruMeditation video on youtube with Bill and Anthony demonstrating Genlock use.

I wonder if AmigaBill could help you here.
