Re: A7000+ PSU

Maybe open up the power supply and look for a 110 v jumper...
The BBC switching power supplies had some links to switch it to
110...

You never know?

Re: AcornA7000 Motherboard alive and well need some basic help now... (if I may)

I received my A7000 ethernet card, however I am away until saturday, so wont be able to plug it in and check it out.
and because it's wired, i will have to move my Amiga 2000 aside for a bit to get to my network cable.

Looking forward to accessing files directly from the A7000 :)

Cheers.
