Default Indivision and RTG Graphic cards.. will they work together?

Would a Cybervision PPC (or Cybervision 64 for that matter) work with an Indivision 4000 and use its scandoubler feature?

I would ideally like to build a Cyberstorm PPC A4000 Video Toaster system with a Picasso IV card but realize my desktop only has one video slot and that would be for the toaster.

What kind of performance would I get from either a Cybervision PPC or Cybervision 64 with the Indivision compared for example with just using a PIV and leaving the toaster out?

Like I said, I would really like to build a screamer toaster 4000 system but if I would get a better/faster amiga for everyday use by leaving the toaster card out I probably would.

I already have all of the above listed parts except for the Cybervision PPC.

Hi,

I have a Cybervision 64 working together with Indivision AGA and works perfect.

The CybervisionPPC and Indivision combo is fine, but you'd need some sort of switcher. Bonus of the PIV is the auto switching between Amiga and RTG modes. Of course, the CV64 does have a passthrough so you're set there.

I'm of the opinion that just about any RTG supporting either CyberGraphX/P96 is great, but autoswitching cards are on the top of my list.

video toaster is going to complicate matters ... I dont think having a scandoubler is a good idea since you'll have to work with the native modes anyway ? though I never used a video toaster so I'm not really sure. Can it even process RTG stuff ?

Video Toasters do what the Video Toaster software tells them to. They don't care about your RTG card. As for scandoubling, the scandoubler talks to your VGA monitor while the Amiga native modes are still happy to work with the Video Toaster.

Somewhere I heard about an incompatibility between scandoublers and VT, never quite got that, I'm sure someone knows the story. Indivision is supposed to be VT friendly though.

Well there is Ratte's (automatic) Monitorswitch designed for exactly that purpose (it even uses the Indi's internal connector). It's a project on a1k.org and AFAIK there are no solid plans to make that available to a wider audience.
