Re: Q68 direct sector access

Hi Per I don't have the answer, but wondered if you were trying to do what I wanted-to recently, i.e. to change the embedded Volume name of a WIN Container file - you'd expect to be able to set the Volume name at point of FORMAT, but you seem only able to set the volume size in the format string and...

Re: Thor XVI - Request for documentation...

HI BSRJ! Thanks - all good info, though I was actually looking for the Monitor pinout to know 'where' the Intensity bit is output (got that now, too!) Meanwhile, I've finally fitted the replacement PSU and checked all good power to the 2x boards, but the system doesn't come up (yet.) ICs get warm to...

Re: Thor XVI - Request for documentation...

Thanks Desin!

Yes, that's pretty much the same set of docs I've researched thus far.

Still missing a User Manual and any low level Technical documentation on the Thor-16.

Will keep on looking :-)

Re: Thor XVI - Request for documentation...

Oh, brilliant! Thank you, saves me messing about tracing each signal :-) If you happened to have any other technical or user documentation in the -16 and would be willing/able to share at some stage, I'd be very grateful! I'm almost ready to fire it up forget first time - hoping the significant corr...

Re: Thor XVI - Request for documentation...

Thanks for the tip, Derek. Yes, had looked there as well - all Thor-1/20/21 related materials. It's always possible that CST re-used the original QL Monitor pinout when they designed the IO board for the -16, though where they'd stick the 'Intensity' signal I don't yet know. I'll just probe the outp...

Thor XVI - Request for documentation...

Hi everyone! Last November, I was lucky enough to purchase a Thor XVI that had been stuck in a garage for a few years (thanks SNG!) and missing it's original PSU - no FDD nor SCSI HDD. I'm looking for a User Manual and any technical/schematic documentation, having trawled and found all the usual ava...

Re: CPLD replacement for ZX8301

Hi everyone! Thanks to Leon's incredible perseverance, I was able to test his latest (S)GC compatible update to the basic CPLD-based 8301 ULA replacement. I'm delighted to report that it works a treat on my (Tetroid cloned) Gold and Super Gold cards once reprogrammed! I am yet to explore the optiona...
