I can be wrong, but I think that LaserDisc Corporation was a subdivision of Pioneer.

See https://segaretro.org/Pioneer_LDC

"Pioneer LDC Co., Ltd. (株式会社パイオニア エル・ディー・シー), formerly known as LaserDisc Corporation Co., Ltd. (株式会社レーザーディスク), Geneon Entertainment Co., Ltd. (株式会社ジェネオン エンタテインメント), and Geneon Universal Entertainment Japan, LLC. (合同会社ジェネオン・ユニバーサル・エンターテイメントジャパン), and currently known as NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan, LLC. (合同会社NBCユニバーサル・エンターテイメントジャパン), is a Japanese music, animation, and entertainment company and subsidiary of Pioneer, most notable for being the official publisher of its parent company's video game products."

There is a LaserVision label. It's an alternative to the LaserDisc label, which was exclusive to Pioneer. It is explained in Japanese Wiki:

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AC%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B6%E3...

"However, in 1981, DVA, the proponent of the standard, decided to replace the VH-8000 because of the low yield rate due to dust and other fine foreign matter mixed in during the optical disk pressing process of DVA in California. Philips decided that it would be difficult to make a profit, and withdrew from the manufacturing business of both hardware and software in less than two years after commercialization. Pioneer acquires the DVA stake in Universal Pioneer, which newly established the Kofu Factory as a state-of-the-art optical disc manufacturing factory equipped with advanced clean rooms and fully automated equipment (changed company name to Pioneer Video Co., Ltd.), and Pioneer becomes the leader of the laser disc industry. , it was decided to promote the popularization by cost reduction. For this reason , "LaserDisc" is a registered trademark of Pioneer Corporation in Japan [1] . Before the release , we consulted with marketing experts, and a proposal from Professor Koichi Tauchi (at that time) of Hitotsubashi University was adopted and named as a laser disc with a laser on the front [ 2] . Manufacturers other than Pioneer use the standard name LaserVision ( LaserVision , LV) was used. In October 1989, Pioneer released the "laser disc" trademark free of charge, allowing other manufacturers to use it [3] , but it was up to each manufacturer to decide whether to use it. In addition, Pioneer used a catchphrase called " record with pictures ".

So, it confirms that info on Generation-MSX is wrong.

The TMS-RGB has been mentioned in this thread. So I had a quick look at their site. And if I understand correctly, it's a VDP-addon, not a VDP replacement. The board needs to be put on the underside of your motherboard. It is mounted to the existing pins of the VDP. It taps to existing signals, making RGB output possible with zero latency. Awesome stuff.

You are right. TMS-RGB is just an annex video circuit.

Is there still something wrong? If yes, what exactly must be changed?

Thanks to the courtesy of sd_snatcher I could add the FS-CA1's manual to the wiki.
Please feel free to copy numerous closeup photos of the FS-CA1 boards and rubber hemisphere (see manual's page 17) from here to the FS-CA1 wiki. I hope they help.

Btw does anyone own both NMS-1205 and HX-MU900 and can tell which outputs louder MSX-AUDIO in comparison to PSG?
