Hi Andrea, I did a modification once with a tripler from a color television and that works well.
But as I am now in Thailand, I don´t have the documentation that I wrote back then with me.
A good electronical engineer (in television equipment) can do it without problem.
You need a tripler, about 10-15 $or ?, and a resistor to make it work.
Also some re-routing of the high voltage cables but nothing serious.
I remember I have send once the manual to somebody on the forum, but don´t know anymore who it was.
So if that person remembers, please forward it to Andrea.

try Derrick Whitehouse in Los Angeles. whitehouse AV. they have a website and Derrick is very knowlegeable. His back room is like a camera garage sale. Brad Whitlock has one of my old tripler assemblies in a box in Vancouver that I sold to him as spares. He's in 669, I don't have his number handy. :ph34r:
