Re: Today I Received...

Hi,

One word of warning, when powering the Q68, please only use 5 volt 1 amp power supply, as anything more than 5v will damage the Q68 board.

I have repaired 3 boards already, maybe I should provide a suitable power supply or USB to 2.1mm dia connector.

Re: Productivity in the QL

To open the round, I tell you my concern these days. In my QL I would like to have something similar to a wiki with searches, where to store notes that could connect to each other through links, such as the Tomboy or Gnote applications. If this application could also manage a calendar to include ev...

Re: Hi From London England

Hi,

Did you put the eprom(s) in an adapter board?

As the QL ROM is not the same pin out as an EPROM.

Re: 68060 UltraGoldCARD

Hi Chr$, The boys in the Amiga world developed a 2 part PCB to adapt the 68040 CPU to 68060. I am not certain a 50Mhz 68060 will work on the QXL. But the QXLII has a 50Mhz clock on it. The 68040 divides this to 25Mhz. The 68060 maybe too fast for the QL Network and the QXL data bus. The PCB is in 2 ...

Massimo Hi Massimo, I doubt that a 68060 can be connected to the QL, the only option I can think of is the QXL card with a 68040 to 68060 adpater card on or a Q60.

Re: LibVT

Hi, Sorry not to of replied earlier, I seem have no time for anything these days... But with regards to defining the QL window in C68, a WINDWDEF structure has to be defined for example: struct WINDDEF _condetails = { */ Border Colour, Border Size, Ink, Paper, Xsize, Ysize, Xpos, Ypos */ 2,1,7,1,512...

Re: Help with Composite out

Hi,

I hope you have better luck with the HDMI upscaler. I could not get an upscaler to display all the QL screen.

I gave up and got a refund. Now using a GBS8220 to a VGA screen, all perfect no missing columns.
