Re: Faulty car radio

How do you get a radio out of the dashboard? I have tried to use a pallet knife at the sides.

Re: hq.uef Specification

I got the message "2 distinct wavelengths not found" which is ok. The range can be 88833 to 88928 and then they are coloured ok. It is slower at this than it was because it checks the wavelengths more. I haven't reproduced your error message.

Re: hq.uef Specification

The exe file must be doing it. That's an older version of .net. It is made with C++ Builder Community 10.2.3 so installing that would probably make it work. You can get a years use for free and if your not interested it can be uninstalled leaving .net installed. The latest version is 10.3.1.

What happens if you move CSWViewer.dll somewhere so it can't be found? Do you get the same message?

Do you have these installed:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 redistributable x64 and x32
I also have that for 2010, 2013 and 2017.

Re: hq.uef Specification

If there is a bug with the parity bit, and I think there probably is, then I'll compile a new MakeUEF with it fixed. Unfortunately some emulators that read hq.uef presumably have the bug too.

Re: adsl cables

I call a PCI card or an external box and ADSL adapter because they technically can't be called modems. I have a PCI card that connects at faster rates with a straight wired cable. It doesn't seem to affect an adsl adapter/router box that I've got. My wall socket had the back part replaced recently. ...

adsl cables

I have found that the cables are sometimes wired reversed at one end. I am talking about telephone adsl cables between adsl adapters and a wall socket. I had one that was reversed and it connected at slower speeds that it did after I rewired it straight. It might have something to do with the length...

Re: Question about Making Tapes

For number 2 you could download CSW Viewer and follow the guidelines about recording a cassette and then it can be converted to CSW format. MakeUEF will convert CSW to UEF.

Re: USB drives on TVs

Mines a Sony Bravia. I can't find much information on the supported formats. It seems to be JPEG and RAW pictures, MP3 and a small number of video formats. I updated its firmware yesterday and I thought I'd knackered it! 10 minutes later the panic was over when it came back on.

USB drives on TVs

Does anyone have much experience of connecting USB drives to TVs? I have a NTFS format drive that wasn't recognised but a FAT USB stick was. I am wondering if they don't usually accept NTFS. There is also limitations with file formats but I need to get a hard drive recognised first.

Here is the other side. I use Gold Wave but I expect other programs will convert it to WAV. FLAC is a lossless format. I have quite a few other files that I made for the preservation site.
