I'm still on my first can of Dr. Pepper.  :)  Cognitive thought is beginning to clear up.

You need a can of Jolt.

What do we need to do to confirm interest? Would love to get this going as it appears there is more interest then just me.

 

You need to go to my site, register, select which version you want on its product page and then complete the checkout procedure.  You will need a paypal account.

I have one of your previous ECI2PBI 1090XLR Adapters (2 cart with 3 position switch, 4 dip switches, and a GAL) I'm wondering if you can enlighten me as to the differences between that, and this simpler redesign?

 

I've never actually looked into what the DIP switches do, but it does work to connect my MIO to a 130XE. Now that I think of it, the finger length on the PBI end is a bit too short, because I had to slide the MIO's connector back a bit, as it would not work when pushed on all the way. Maybe something to look at for the new design. They look maybe 2/3 the length of the ones on the Cart/ECI side.

You have a kind of premium version of the currently offered Single RA Cart/ECI2PBI.  I originally planned to do a 1090XL version box and developed you're board to attach to it.  It also functions as a 'standard' Cart/ECI2PBI based on the configuration of the dip switches.  I've since ended development of the 1090XL box and made my project public domain. 

 

You really don't have any need to purchase any of the current designs unless you need them for other 130XE Ataris you have.  :)

 

I can definitely look at extending the length of the fingers.  Thanks for the tip.  :)

Are you in the US?  Have you tried other DNS servers ip addresses other than your ISP's?

 

I'm trying to narrow down where the problem is.  Right now it's a DNS issue, but I don't know how localized it is.

Hello Lenore

 

The last two times I tried, Safari reported NO errors.

 

<---  I'm here.

 

Lastic I believe lives in Belgium.  (Maybe he should enter that into his profile)

 

Sincerely

 

Mathy

Indeed, I'm in Belgium, added that info to my Profile.

 

It looks indeed or a DNS issue with my router or my provider Telenet.

 

When I surf to your site using my mobile which uses Proximus (other Belgium ISP), it works.

 

Will have a further look wether it's ISP or router DNS related.

the single 90 degree cartridge connector extend only? sounds like only one guy wanted that particular offering. But I could be wrong.

ball park figures on cost would be helpful as well.

I'll eventually have a 3D printed shell or modify a cartridge shell to protect them.

Nice Video Music machine.  I also have one with original box.  Super fun device, but it really needs a composite/s-video out mod.
