Re: Behaviour of SER_BUFF in QPC & SMSQ/E

Interesting....

Thanks Tobias. I'll look again at why I appeared to see problems communicating with the uC via Serial/USB on QPC2, without extending the buffer size using SER_BUFF.

It was an early-on observation, whilst still debugging the uC code, so maybe a red-herring...

Re: Behaviour of SER_BUFF in QPC & SMSQ/E

Hi John

Thanks for that - that was my assumption as well - namely that any future channels opened to a given port would inherit the latest buffer-size settings - similar to the way BAUD works, for example.

Let's see if anyone else here can confirm or correct this understanding.

Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

AWESOME Dave!

I'll save my pennies ready for Valentine's Day and divert some funds from the traditional wife's pressy (don't tell her!)

I also wonder what it would take to convince SMSQ/E to talk at 430k...

Behaviour of SER_BUFF in QPC & SMSQ/E

Hi everyone As part of the QLUB adapter project (QL LAN via a USB/SERial port & microcontroller - see elsewhere in the forum for more details), I am exploring how best to leverage the serial-buffers option in SMSQ/E (on QPC specifically.) For the QLUB project, I appear to need to extend the SERi...

Re: Ways to improve the QL Forum?

All thoughts I've had too - especially since the birth of the Q68 :-)

Re: QLAN-USB Adapter - working prototype...

A little update for those following this project... On-going progress is being made with the interfacing between the microcontroller and SMSQ/E (to add-back the native NET and FSERVE/Nx_ device drivers) - should have more to report in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, mostly out of curiosity, I picked-...

Re: Network Access Server - NAServe

Very nice piece of software, Martin - thank you!

With more new-old users coming back to the original QL, I reckon the native networking of the QL will start to get more use :-)

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Hi Jean-Yves

Yes, that looks right - positive polarity in the centre/inside (curiously referred to as the 'tip') of the 2.1mm (inner diameter) x 5.5mm (outer) barrel at 5V/1A.

Good luck.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Hi Sparrowhawk

As regards power-supply - I am using a regular USB-type 'wall-wart' supply that can supply up to 1A, but I hacked the mini-USB end off and soldered-on the 2.1mm plug (+5V to the inner conductor) - which are pretty standard and easy to get a-hold of.
