Re: PiTubeDirect signalconverter for BBC Micro

Labels are local - RX is in and TX is out. RX at one end will be connected to TX at the other and vice versa.

Re: Some fixes to 32016 emulation in B-Em

Perhaps I should try it out on my Master Turbo.

I'll need to do the PSU caps in that first.

If you can work with .ssd images, these are known to work: http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=133413#p133413 Dave Am I right in thinking it's PAN141A.SSD for drive 0 and PAN141B.SSD for drive 2?

Re: Some fixes to 32016 emulation in B-Em

I've downloaded and booted the Anaconda build of PiTubeDirect but it hangs as the same point as the previous version.

I'm begining to wonder if the DSD images I got from MDFS.NET are corrupt. Has anyone successfully run any of these?

Is there another source of PanOS DSD images?

Re: Some fixes to 32016 emulation in B-Em

Can't help with DSD - I'm too ignorant - but just possibly this 400M download will be an ADFS image for PanOS and DosPlus. (That link won't be live forever - I'm sure there's a more official one - but it might do for now.) Edit: Dave posted a link to a 7zip compressed image for a 2G or larger SDCar...

Just to answer this one: yes! Not just the full PanOS on an ADFS partition, but also mini-PanOS as seen on litwr's SSD images.


Can I beg for some dsd image files? An ADFS for tge datacentre ide would be ace too.

Re: Some fixes to 32016 emulation in B-Em

Firstly which version of PiTubeDirect are you using ? I'm not entirely sure! I bought a Tube adaptor from Kjell Sundby in Nov 2016 and ordered an SD card from him at the same time so it's what he was shipping then. I see that with the Anaconda release of PiTubeDirect I only need a FAT32 formatted S...

Re: Some fixes to 32016 emulation in B-Em

While my real 32016 hardly gets any further with the Data Centre. I get an "*** Exception (UND) at PC = XXXXXX" on both versions of PanOS. 000300 for V1.1 and 019A65 for V1.4

This may be due to my 32016 having Pandora 0.6 ROMS.

Re: Offered: Matchbox sized 6502 / Z80 / 6809 Co Pro

You've not got the ARM core showing up there either... You might not be setting one of the switches? They are small, and fiddly and do get confusing. The most convenient way to select the copro is using *FX 151,230,n where n is the number from the list on the wiki page. Try: *FX 151,230,13 and hit ...

Replacing a Futaba keyswitch

I've got a totally dead escape key and want to replace the keyswitch. The switches are soldered to the motherboard and inserted into a metal plate and held in place with a pair of clips built into the keyswitch. It looks like during manufacture the keyswitches were inserted into the metal plate and ...

so I'm assuming there's a hardware fault in the keyboard.

Power to the motherboard is fine and the problem happens when cold or ...
