  1. I ordered a new blaster and this one is actually branded Altera and worked. So now I'm running core 41. Thanks guys.
  2. I'm trying to update the firmware in my EclaireXL. The Blaster I have is the one included with it. I've installed Quartus and have tried using those drivers, the system crashes. I've tried a few from the web, no good. Who has or knows of a good driver?
  3. The driver for the USB blaster is crashing my computer. I've searched around for the correct driver and so far no luck. It may be that this USB Blaster is not compatable with the drivers. It's strange as others have used it. The Quartus drivers don't work nor do the ones that Windows 10 wants to use. So I never get the Start button to become active.
  4. OK, I'm having trouble with Quartus. I have the USB blaster installed, driver updated, Eclaire turned on, cables hooked up but Quartus won't let me start the flash. BTW, should I be using atari800core_eclairexlv3.jic with a older style purple V3.0 (not a mini). Help!
  5. To be safe I guess I'll just download in the Intel stuff and delete it when I am finished. Thanks!
  6. Do I really have to download this Intel Quadratus package to flash the firmware? It's 2+ gigs of space and it's like signing up for a home loan, even the free edition. Is there something else that can be used?
  7. I hooked it back up to VGA and did F11....SUCCESS!! It's got core 20 I think so I will flash later today. thanks a million guys!!
  8. I did try setting the video but no effect. I'll start downloading the 2gig intel software to flash the core.
  9. I purchased one of the purple V3 boards early this year (I think) and life got in the way of me actually using it. So now I'm trying to get it to boot. Here's what I have: Monitor: Lilliput HDMI video monitor connected via HDMI cable SDcard: 2gb, set up according to the video instructions Power: 3amp USB wall wart USB wireless keyboard When powered on, there is no video output. I tried it via VGA on another monitor and the same result occurred. I get the red, yellow and blue LEDs lit but no other signs of life. I did try it without the SDcard and it made no difference. Hopefully this is just me doing something wrong...any advise?

  11. Received my board yesterday. I'm looking forward to getting it hooked up!
  12. I'm glad this offer was posted to Facebook or I'd never gotten one!! I only stop by here very infrequently.
  13. Does the US version of the Falcon work in the UK? Does it adjust for PAL? Or is that only for machines that use a TV?
  14. Probably so. I visited your website and it's very cool.
