So a program like this shows the same behaviour? (Will dust off a real machine to try it!)

10 IF INKEY-99=-1 PRINT"CLS"
20 GOTO 10
I'm wondering (just curious!) if one of your other changes is to blame.
yes prints CLS when you press x ' / !

so has to be the ghosting.

Re: bbc master 512 keyboard acting funny

conections properly aligned, the ribon cable is soldered to the keyboard end, and all conections "look" good.

The only thing i havnt said is, ages ago, one or two of the keys where not working so i sprayed the lot with electrical cleaner... I wonder if that has done something?

Re: variable volume for the BBC

worked it out for my case!

my beeb has the RGB to scart lead, that goes into a 4 way adapter to the tv, so i plugged in a phone cable to the audio out and used a RBG adapter in one of the other 4 ports for the sound, and it worked!!!

variable volume for the BBC

Has anyone done this? Is it as simple as putting a potentiometer inline and a wire to the earth? Reason i ask is my brother moans its loud sometimes, and fair enough it is. I wanted to ask before i tried out anything and damaged it!
