Hi Rob,

Thanks,

As you can see in the photo (http://apple2.aliross.co.uk/photos/2e/IMG_6092.JPG) it's an Apple IIe International NTSC variant.

How to set the Pi to 50hz/625 lines timing is the next challenge! I don't see where you can adjust that sort of thing, certainly it doesn't seem to be in any of the arguments available for /boot/config.txt.

Thanks, Alistair.
