Wauw, love that Timex Hybrid system! The ZX software library is extensive and I am sure there are some real gems for you to explore. It is about as rich as the c64 library! Bill, you are one of the few Americans who is actually able to experience the ZX library on a 'real' machine. Most Americans interested in ZX software will have to work with - quite a few excellent - ZX-Emulators.
Besides the various 48K emulators on my Timex Sinclair 2068, I have a ZX Spectrum +2 (128K). For the latter, I have that cable I was talking about that's supposed to work on a 1084S. Obviously the video will remain in PAL format and the power has a simple converter on the end. It seems like the Timex Sinclair 2068 48K emulator remains in NTSC format, so I'm very curious how it translates software obviously designed for PAL. I have a box full of cassettes that I imported from Britain and that box of disks that I mentioned. The former will work on both (except for the 128K-only or optimized software), while the latter will only work with the Oliger interface on the 2068 (of course, there's no actual disk drive in the package, so I have to figure out what drive to actually plug into it!).
I've always been impressed by the Sinclair's European presence and popularity and have tried to educate myself as much on it as possible (just like Japan's MSX systems), but I think the harsh reality likely is the C-64 is the greatly more enjoyable experience. Fun stuff, though, regardless...
