NOTE: Before reading this blog you might want to read the previous blog on the CFHDX.

 

Here is another interesting use for the NanoPEB and the CFHDX cable or cross-over cable, the ability to print from the NanoPEB without needing to find a, nearly impossible to find, serial printer.

HOW TO:

As with the CFHDX attach the NanoPEB to your PC using the CFHDX cable (see previous blog) or a cross-over cable.

Now set the comport on the PC to:
300

7 bit

odd parity

1 stop bit

none

Start up a VT100 terminal emulator on the PC and also set the port to the same.

Now print anything on the TI99 to the "RS232" port and it will be sent to the VT100 screen. Use your VT100 software to print, save or whatever you want to do to the data.

 

Here is the printout of a small program in the VT100 from the TI99 using LIST "RS232"
