BCD Microelectronics in UK online - in stock - strip of 10 - £190. Little pricey even if you could order singles but that's the only place I found. Probably time for me to move on to something not 9 years old. It was a good ship.

That is unfortunate. Scalpers at 25 bucks a chip and no absolute guarantee that would fix it. Probably need to replace both if one failed. I think better off finding a good working 'Pal and retire the old one to the non-working parts-only ebay sales.
