Apple ][ (euro) plus: how to hook it to hdmi and colour

(1/2) > >>

Moriambar:
Hello.
A buddy of mine went out and gifted me an apple ][ plus (europlus since we're in Italy) which seems fully functional and has actually been repaired (has a daughter board in place of the roms).
I don't know what to use to hook it up to a standard hdmi display though (or usb-c) nor how to have colour. I understand the latter is quite a hassle on the europlus. can you please help me?

Cheers

Retrotink is the generic solution for HDMI: https://www.retrotink.com/

This might work too if you have a monitor with composite in: https://www.ebay.com/itm/193393714278

If you don't mind a DIY open source project solution, this supports Apple IIs.

It needs a Raspberry Pi Zero though, so if you haven't already got one spare, you will probably be able to get all the other bits (including a custom board) delivered and built before you can get a Pi Zero.

hi, thanks for the reply.
I have no composite monitor and the retrotink is incredibly superexpensive plus 50$ of int'l shipping.
Unfortunately it's a no-no

I'll take a look into it because, believe it or not, I just happen to have a spare pi zero W which I bought some time ago and ended up not using.
Thanks
