Peartree ROM board

Post by DutchAcorn » Sun Aug 13, 2017 3:13 pm

Today I received a Peartree ROM board for the BBC B. One of these. Obviously it plugs into the OS socket and provides four extra ROM sockets but what do the jumpers north of the rom sockets do (32K roms?) and where do the flying leads lead to?

Does anyone here have or know where to find an installation guide?

Thanks for checking, Martin!

The fitting instructions may give me enough information to work it out. Can / will you make a picture of the page that shows where the leads go?

Thanks!

Do you still have this, and could you archive the disc?
