BeebAid and PiTubeDirect on Model B? - Help!

Post by strawberrytau » Mon Apr 01, 2019 8:49 am

I am trying to set up BeebAid on my BBC B - to enable me to toggle the PiTubeDirect CoPro easily with TAB-BREAK.

I don't have an EEPROM unit yet (ordered and in the post) so am running the BeebAid rom from my Boobip Sideways RAM. It seems to work fine, except I cannot get TAB-BREAK or *TUBEON *TUBEOFF to work properly. :-(

When I try *TUBEOFF - I get the errors:

"Write Access 5"
TUBE already disabled

and when I ctrl-break the CoPro is not disabled

With *TUBEON - I get the errors:

"Write Access 5"
TUBE already active

Interestingly, I get very similar errors on a BBC Model B emulation in MacBeebEm (Write Access 7 - instead of 5). Screenshot attached:

Does anyone on this group have experience with getting BeebAid and PiTubeDirect working together on a Model B?
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Edit: I am using Auto Beebaid 1.01 as that's the only version I have been able to track down. I see references to a version 1.05 online. Does anyone on the forum have the file for this later version?

The latest I've ever found is 1.02.

Only mention of 1.05 is with Col at viewtopic.php?f=1&t=663&p=2570#p2570, was never shared though.
