$$Due to some differences in the chipset, the Philips VG-8020 was not always 100$ compatible with other MSX-computers. Typing ''poke -1,170'' before loading programs usually fixed the bug.

That''s not correct. It wasn''t a problem of the comp, but of the software that didn''t follow the standard specs. Well done software never failed.

Ok update :) mine has written on the top 80kb ram+ 16kbvideo seems this is a model to avoid the spanish n on keyboard tax. Seeing that i got it from spain it makes sense. Hope it helped a bit :)

There''s another difference between the Secam and the Pal models, Pal models come with RF lead which is missing in the Secam models.

This is a superb computer, I owned one and I was so happy with it...If you''re looking for a good MSX1, this is your computer.

Greetings from Spain.

If you look carefully the photographs of the French version (Secam) of the VG8020, and the Pal versions, you'll discover one missing key at the right side of the right shift key. This is another difference between the two models.
