Re: RGB to HDMI using a Pi Zero and a small CPLD

Thread has got huge now. Quick question did anyone every design any sort of 3d printed case for the Beeb version? The atom one fits in a project case and got me thinking to putting this in one. I think the standard PiZero case used IanB is perfect, look his post https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewto...

Ok. I've written a small RAMSET utility which is a BASIC program that allows the user to inform Integra of any addition RAM that is installed in the system.

Re: IDE interfaces - hardware details

So, i have a last question for @RobC: you said you use 4.39 and RO6... so, your IDE Podule works with softloaded RO6? I've not tried it. I do have an original ICS podule in my A310 but I haven't put a ZIDEFS ROM in it yet. I could try it if you want me to but it might take me a few days to get arou...

I haven't tried this as I only use RO4.39 and RO6 on my RiscPC but does ZIDEFS show up under *ROMMODULES or *MODULES? Just wondering whether it's getting unplugged for some reason?

The correct soldering iron bit looks like this:

It's huge compared to the pins, but that doesn't matter. Don't try to solder each pin individually. And don't use a fine pointed bit.
