    Good day to all!
    I have a EURO PAL SEGA Saturn Model 2 with a Sanyo Board, (Saturn assy cd unit sat sanyo +5v / 610-6185-30 kpc 4594v-0) (Not a 32-pin nor a 64-pin chip board)

    I have a lot of experience with electronics and have successfully modded countless systems, and I want to buy a 100% compatible mod chip to install on the above Saturn.

    I found this 21pin modchip sold by Rob Webb at consolegoodds.co.uk:
    http://www.robwebb1.plus.com/saturn/saturnchipguide_2.htm

    Which is supposed to be compatible with all 21pin model Saturns, (the required ribbon cable is included with the modchip) and with the Sanyo board versions based on the installation guide at the bottom.

    1. For anybody that has used this specific mod chip, can you verify that it will work 100% with my above Saturn Sanyo board?

    2. Is this mod chip the PCB V3 (Universal) mentioned here?:

    3. And will this 21-pin mod chip from Rob Webb truly work 100% with all the following Model 2 Saturn if I was to buy more?:
    Oval power and reset buttons / 21 pin ribbon cable / 64 pin IC.
    Round power and reset buttons / 21 pin ribbon cable / 64 pin IC.
    Round power and reset buttons / 21 pin ribbon cable / 32 pin IC.
    Round power and reset buttons / 21 pin ribbon cable / No IC (AKA Sanyo Board)
    Thanks in advance.

    4. Also will his 20-pin mod chip work 100% with a Model 1 Saturn:
    Oval power and reset button / 20 pin ribbon cable?

    Thanks in advance
