Atari 2600 gets internal UWRC wireless Receiver

Samstag, Juli 30th, 2016

I used a old revision (rev1) of micros neogeo Receiver and put it inside of the A2600 6 swich.

I was modified before with A2600RGB from tim worthington and I used some more switches like select, reset from the Atari and extra button from tim worthingstons 2600RGB PCB


Button A = normal FireButton 1 of Atari (Pin 6)

Button B = Firebutton 2 (Pin 9)

Select  =    Extra Button A2600RGB PCB

Start  = Start of Atari 2600

Button C= Select of Atari 2600

Button D = Palette switch A2600RGB PCB


All normal Controllers will work after mod too. Like paddle, racing, joystick.



(diodes, needed to make special functions from A2600RGB working, R=10k as pullup)




RX Led to show it though the power switch hole upperside red led down side gn led


UWRC PC Engine Shuttle Controller

Samstag, Juli 30th, 2016

A futuristic styled Controller for the PC-Engine Shuttle. Now its time to make it wireless.

thanks to the PCB of micro and some reposition of the led usb powersupply it works great.

I put it at the hole of the original wire and with some hotglue it works









PC Engine Duo R/RX RGB Mod with bypass PCE-TV

Mittwoch, Juli 27th, 2016

Nothing really new, only to see how to add THS Amplifier working in a Duo R / RX.

I used Pin 44 of HU C6260 C-Sync for Sync. So you have to cut the Video Signal to the Din Connector (yellow wire).

Black wire is optional, for „more“ GND



For the Din Pinout I used the old French Layout born in the 90ths. With RGB added to the 3 new Pins of the Din 8.1. The rest of Pins are untouched (exeption C-Sync)

3 resistors 22 Ohm are used for make PCE-TV work to output around 0,7V. The PCB is the 1st Revision of micro. Power is taken from a Elko nearby. (orange/black=GND, orange/red=5V)





Scart Pinout


Jailbars removement

After checking the picture there are jailbars :-(

After replacement of two  capacitor the picture is great.

replace C909 and C923 with 4,7uf down under Hu C6260




You final reward will be 1000 Points :-)

Wireless Rules

thanks micro


UWRC vs remote control yesterday

Montag, Juli 25th, 2016

here you can see the grandpa of remote control ;-)

a little comparsion between yesterdays remote and state of the art :-)))

UWRC PC-Engine Cordless Controller

Donnerstag, Juli 21st, 2016

I done some ironical way of UWRC ;-)
Here i am using 3 of the 4 Batteries for powersupply of the UWRC, because of the max. voltage of 5,5V of the UWRC Board.

UWRC NES japanese Famicom Controller

Donnerstag, Juli 21st, 2016

For make it fit into a japanese Famicom Pad you have to cut the PCB at the edges and re add the cutted circuit board.

UWRC NeoGeo Board

Donnerstag, Juli 21st, 2016

I sacrifice my NeoGeo Board to make it wireless with uwrc. thanks to micro again.

Here I used my Led modded NeoGeo Controller and put all together. Because of the Leds and more need of current. I used a bigger LiPo. The future will tell how long it works.

Case Modding for the USB connector and LED

UWRC Competition Pro

Donnerstag, Juli 21st, 2016

I used a Competition Pro USB (bad USB lag) and changed it into a UWRC Controller.

It uses Button, A,B,Select,Start (on the triangle Buttons). With the small black switch you can select the triangle Buttons between Select,Start and Button X,Y.

UWRC Competition Pro Mini

Donnerstag, Juli 21st, 2016

I bought some Competition Pro Mini and most of them have brocken microswitches :-(

I found some replacements here:

It was very tricky to add the Universal TX PCB in this tiny stick but after all it looks great :-)
After removing original parts I add a Led and two more micro switches for Select and Start.

The chrome switch to swap between Layout Select/Start and Button X, Button Y

I must move the electronic of the LiPo to put it between the two fire Buttons
