  1. Love all your videos. Just got a 60 in 1 myself and look forward to hooking it up. Now I know how. Thanks.

  2. on the 60 in 1 board you used it has what looks like a computer power supply hookup. Can you use the power supply from a computer to power the board also?

  3. does the board come with the wires connected? just starting to research building my own.

  4. Great video as usual! The only topic I would have like to have seen you cover would have been an external volume control. The 60-1 boards only have the digital volume control which can be a pain when you power the machine off and on. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  5. my pacman wiring harness had a wire to sound snap is there a way to fix that without rewiring the whole cab. Should I use tape or solder.

  6. Hi im helping a youth group that was donated a jamma op capcom coin op street fighter 2 that whilst in game is missing the sprites any clue as to why?

  8. I bought a PC to Jamma converter but not sure how to plug in the white connector and no instructions

  9. So I had a quick question for ya. I bought a arcade machine a while back and it came with X-men Vs Street Fighter and it runs really great. But when I bought a MVS 1 slot and hooked it up and it only plays sound REALLY loud and no video and I was curious as to what the fix for this might be.

  10. Where can I purchase that conversion kit I do have a pacman cocktail table I was thinking of rewiring and your video is quite handy.

  11. Nice to see the junction box and standard plug sets inside the cabinet.  Makes your electrician and insurance guys happy.

  12. I just got my Arcade Cocktail Cabinet today! It has a JAMMA board and all. Thing is I purchase it with a coin door but the seller had it set to free play. 1. Are there any videos online that would show how I set it up to use coins. 2. Are there any videos online that show how to disable the games I don't want on the menu.

    I appreciate any help.

  13. Whats that jamma PCB? I didn't know there are jammas with VGA out.

  14. hello I'm using this pandora's box 3 and I have problem with the vga signal. It is 800×600 but the frequency seam to be weird near 40 hz. It works on old LCD but on newer LCD with also dvi port I have problems like black screen, switch off or out of frequency message. I already try also to power pandora with a atx power supply, but it doesn't work. Should be a solution use for example a vga signal repeter/filter? any ideas? tnx
