Re: New octane does nothing

Seems we have run out of options, but is it the XBO or the MB? Shame, you don't live close old chap, I have plenty of stuff to test. It's a shame. Maybe I should just get a board like this one and try it like vishnu suggested? Doesn't state its worked or working? As a thought, have you cleaned the ...

Re: New octane does nothing

I am unsure if the power switch has to keep a permanent feed, but sounds to me like the power button or something that it feeds.
If you hold the button in long enough do you get any output serial or screeen?

Re: New octane does nothing

Maybe I need a new dallas chip? How would I even get one, would I need to reprogram one I got? Could I use the DS1687-5+ ? Do I need to reprogram it somehow when I get it? I don't know much about this stuff. I think the dallas chip might have gotten messed up somehow. I doubt it, not for powering o...

Re: New octane does nothing

Have we disconnected the dallas (or RTC) chip yet? Just a thought. No, if the chip is dead and I disconnect it will it boot? I was under the impression that the system wouldn't boot if it was removed, so maybe it is dead and that's the issue? I don't know. My thought on this was just to reset the d...

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

Can you compile anything in C#? If so.. Create a project with a form Add a timer - 'timerSetKey' in my example. Add a label - no real need to do this, mine is called 'labelResponse' but it's add some feed back. Throw this in the form .cs file using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using Sys...

Re: FS: Boxed Indy R5K

This really does look like a great collectors item. It's not very often I would like to live in the US (nothing against it, I just like my own country for all it's warts and pimples), but this is one of those times. I also need another Indy like I need someone smashing a hammer in my head, but I wou...

Re: Crimson thermal trip at boot

This may be a possible weird sounding solution, but my o200 exhibits the same. To start, ensure you have serial from the AUX to another machine (not itself). Flick the power switch (at the cable - on/off) on and leave it for 10 mins. Fire it up. You never know.. oh and occasionally I have to wiggle ...

Re: tezro DM3/VBOB/DM5 - multiple links

I think the closest we've got to a VBOB expert here is uunix, speaking for myself I've never been able to get mine to work properly... :roll: Thanks for the honour Vishnu :oops: , but it may be miss-placed somewhat. My VBOB usage has been strictly limited to using it with discreet products and if I...

Re: Trying to get Acorn A5000 Keyboard working in macOS

I actually have no idea if he's a nice guy really, there is a docudrama called Micro-Men that shows the story of the British 8bit computer industry in the early 80s. Quite a good program, anyway Chris curry is played by Martin Freeman(?) of the UK Office. certainly worth a watch if you haven't seen ...
