Re: HostFS+TCPIP

The probe isn't "wrong" or the problem - merely that the small amount of loading introduced by the probe reduces the noise/glitches enough to cure the problem - cure to the problem is to load the signal with a bit of capacitance. How do you mean not wrong? If it changes things by probing it is wron...

Re: HostFS+TCPIP

placing a scope probe on that signal stopped the problem. So another bodge capacitor and all is well. I'm not sure if this is noise coming from the address lines themselves or diode switching noise or the slow rise time. I may try some different diodes first. It's quite hard to debug when a scope p...

So far I've not found any real software that uses the API and any that is would only need minor changes (i.e. Elminster's). From what I remember I had to bodge something anyway as the API support wasn’t quite right. Forget what the issue was off the top of my head. Will go back through my emails at...
