I have never seen much for those machines, except MSX software ported to the Spectravideo by users.
These machines sold well in scandinavia, don't know about rest of the world.

I would think it would be relatively easy to convert a 328 into a MSX 1 compatible computers, at least with basic programs.

AFAIK there're no SVI's active forums like MRC; but maybe I'm wrong. Try looking through the links posted in SVI-328 Wikipedia's page. Also you can find a lot of information on this page: Roger's Spectravideo page.

As emulator you can use BlueMSX or this one.

Unless you upgrade it to 728. There seems to be a few owners of that machine here including myself.

It's a pity, really Sad
This computer is nearly a MSX machine and as in the colecovision scene, would be very cool to port some SVI games to MSX (armoured assault and frantic freddy among others) and MSX games back to the SVI. I've no idea about the SVI BIOS or if the games makes use of it; but maybe are easy to convert or at least easier than the colecovision stuff, I guess that is harder to adapt.

I wonder if it's possible to "upgrade" (sidegrade is more like it) a 328 to a 728 without a lot of work.

It should be just as easy as converting Memotech MTX512. Practically you need new motherboard, connectors, keyboard matrix etc. but the components are about same.

BTW there exists MSX emulator for SVI that can load MSX tapes and you can play BASIC games.

benny: well, I can't run blueMSX, so that's not so useful to me...
