Re: Connecting the QL to modern TVs

On the amiga this is solved using an FPGA to snoop the bus for video writes. Something similar could be done on most computers with a little verilog/VHDL jiggery pokery!

Re: Connecting the QL to modern TVs

I agree that at the moment for a QL it is not required (if you don't mind making up a composite video lead, or can get hold of a QL SCART lead) - however, it was more the question as to whether with the aid of a header, Raspberry Pi Zero and a bit of software, it might be possible to convert the ou...

Re: Sinclair QL - blank screen.... HeLp!

unfortunately I do not have access to a logic probe so I am going to have to try and test/replace the logic chips one at a time. That can be rectified pretty easilly these days. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-Logic-Analyzer-Device-Set-USB-Cable-24MHz-8CH-24MHz-for-ARM-FPGA-M100-M-/152139524671?hash=...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

Key cartridges


Hopefully someone on QL scene learns enough assembler to remove all these protections for the preserved software. Otherwise in for an awful lot of software loss in next decade :-(

Re: WiFi232 device - usable on QL?

The device is very simple to use, but interfacing it to a QL is less so. I am very willing to pair up with anyone who can design an AVR/PIC to do the parallel to serial conversion. That would change this from a "months" thing to a "weeks" thing. It needs at minimum to do 115,200...
