Re: Who on here has the earliest Acorn Electron?

I got my Elk for my birthday at the end of October 83. My father drove all the way from Lowestoft to Bury St Edmunds to get it. Unfortunately I sold it when bought my first PC around 90\91.

Re: Blakes 7

One of my favourite Sci-fi childhood tv series. Watched every episode. Always very disappointed with the ending, but it did leave an opening for another series sometime in the future. B7, Baker Dr Who, sapphire and steel, the tomorrow people etc... What a great period.

Re: BBC micro RGB to scart problems (help/ suggestions)

Looked at the manual and I didn't see something for RGB selection per source. Might be worth trying some of the things suggest in this page https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/tro ... art-cables.

Yep, just saw that in the second file\program of the UEF "Nightworld". If you remove this it loads happily with Plus 1. Why did they do this?

And how to change the UEF?

Re: BBC micro RGB to scart problems (help/ suggestions)

Maybe if you tell us the make\model of tv we can check the manual (if available online) how to enable RGB on the Scart socket. I think on Samsung TV there is a RGB selection item on the settings menu. It's good pointer for me to check now as I want to buy a new TV\monitor for my Acorn machines and d...

Re: MMFS Query

The only problem with UPURS is the need for a pc from which to send the files. An ideal solution would be a raspberry pi with some additional commands to list the files on the pi and initiate the transfer. Nice idea that. Could make that into some sort of datacentre for the Electron supporting both...

Re: MMFS Query

I’m guessing you are an Electron owner. If you are worried about finding software on disk I would recommend you visit http://www.acornelectron.co.uk/ and consider buying the DVD. It has a huge collection of software in UEF (tapes), SSD\DSD (DFS file system) and ADF (ADFS file system).

Re: Cheap SD/MMC Readers

If you have a disk interface fitted already, you'll find the gotek to be the most "compatible" solution as so far as the beeb's concerned it's a normal floppy disk drive. I agree. More money (as a prebuild kit) but pretty much heading to be the defacto standard as a cross-retro-platform type device...

The E00 electron ADFS needs to be loaded into two banks of sideways RAM, but doesn't have SCSI support.

Hi, What is the best version of ADFS that can be used on the Pegasus board? Acorn ADFS v1.0 works fine with Pegasus. I have this and works fine. There is PRES E00 ADFS v3.31 Rom https://www.stairwaytohell.com/roms/homepage.html , but I don't know if it works with the Pegasus as I've never tried it....
