Re: Covid19

One of my yesterday contacts lies today on ICU with artificial ventilation due to pneumonia.
So I was told to stay at home and wait for his SARS-CoV-2 results - but no news yet.

I was playing with QLirc on BBQL, but with no real success.

In fact, more QLs were produced than Amiga 1200 in PAL version.

Re: Just confirming SER1 to PC COM adapter

So you're sending data from PC to SER2 on the BBQL, right?

No, this is how to connect Sinclair QL Printer (with Samsung DE-9 connector) to PC with QXL.

Re: Just confirming SER1 to PC COM adapter

According to my clever paper, I have connected my cable "QL SER2 to modem" (but now we need "PC to QL printer") this way:
1 GND to pin 5
3 TxD to pin 3
2 RxD to pin 2
4 RTS (DTR on SER2) to pin 7
5 CTS to pin 8
7 0V to pin 5
9 +12V - NC
(6, 8 NC)

Re: QL/E running on QXL2 ISA PC card

TIt's a German QL so has a decent 9 pin D connector (same type that will directly fit COM2 of host PC). It will fit, but the pinout is different.
