Re: Another QL newbe...

As for the QL to SCART cable, I took the time to do a paint-sketch of the two cables that I made myself : http://r28.imgfast.net/users/2812/78/81/57/album/qltosc10.jpg and that work very well on my TVs, as you can see on this detail of a screenshot : http://r28.imgfast.net/users/2812/78/81/57/album/...

Re: Connector pinout

Hi, all ! This morning, I experimented with a serial link between My QL and my PC. I already had the "regular" serial cable for the QL (with the weird english plug on the QL side), but I had to add on the PC side an USB to (9 pins) Serial converter, as my PC no longer has a serial socket. ...
