Nice work indeed. The PCB looks like a comprehensive redesign, not just a clone. So I wonder why you did not also design a new PLD.
Are there unknown/undocumented functions?

Re: Issues and questions.

Many thanks for describing your experiences! I also own the "boxy type" SCART-HDMI converter (more compact than the OSSC and nicely cased). With that, the screen blanks most of the time, but once in a while I see a clear picture. Yes it could be the choice of monitor/TV, but I also have do...

Re: Issues and questions.

I'm thankful that you and many others enjoy my Q68 design, but even I would love to keep my QLs usable. It seems that you had luck with QL video conversion, but I had not... so I almost seriously considered: - Redesign the Q68 to become sort of an "UltraGoldCard" extension for the QL - Mak...

Re: Issues and questions.

True about dust, but plastic cases will be even less protective against RF and static charge. The aluminium or steel plates will be a partial faraday cage. It is presented in the shop like a commercial high-end product for the general market, so I think it deserves a closed metal or metallized case...

No shielding for EMI and dust goes in.

Re: Issues and questions.

As for the case, that's the only one available, but you can make your own. Technically you could build your own unit as it's fully open source, both hardware and firmware. Thanks, but to design and build a case ist not the work I want to do when I spend so much money for a finished solution. It wou...

Re: Issues and questions.

The picture looks better than anything else I saw generated from original QL video. (At least from my QLs - there seem to be video quality differences between mainboards.)

Can the black borders be removed?

Is there a closed case also?

PCs? I hope the many years of emulation did not make your subconsciousness exchange them with QLs :P

Re: Overview of QL SD / CF Solutions

Also, I seem to recall that QubIDE (QubATA) and original QL-SD formats were byte-reversed (so, not directly exchangeable without first converting) The formats are not byte-reversed! But the IDE bus must be read correctly, i.e. with big-endian 68K hardware QubIDE was designed for. As long as one use...

Re: 8302<>8049 communications...

Games and the KEYROW and BEEP commands also call the IPC to directly scan a key row and to start and stop sound. To my surprise, during Q68 testing, no games were found which directly access the IPC for sound. Do you know any games that do? I was at first considering to implement the IPC inside the...
