  1. Thank you sparkdrummer. Excellent as always!
  2. Thank you arcadeshopper, brilliant and simple! Now to figure out how to check Chatti and Group Chat for notifications/msg's waiting. That may be able to be integrated into the Pi program as well.
  3. Thank you [email protected] Sorry for the generic question. I appreciate the clarification and apologize that I am not precise nor have enough knowledge or understanding about the TI, Force Command, Raspberry Pi and TIPI to be able to offer desired suggestions. I do however, want to learn more about each of these system and hopefully be able to produce something usable to the community. I thank you again for the time and effort to explore my request and for providing a clear response.
  4. I was hoping to be able to control one of the tipi gpio output pins. Can force command cause a script to run on the Raspberry Pi (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/gpio/python/README.md)? A command like LED On/Off? Then it could be incorporated into batch files/programs to toggle a notification led light.
  5. Is it possible to have a command that toggles a GPIO output pin? I would like to use an LED as a notification indicator.
  6. I am up for that. How about creating a poll to see how many are interested in participating?
  7. Good day everyone! I am sorry that I missed this month's chat due to being out of town. I am looking forward to next month's chat.
  8. Omega made the point that it is actually cool that you need an actual TI to join the chat, and I can agree with that! Thanks Omega!
  9. I am going to be out of town on the 9th but would still like to participate in the monthly group chat. I am unable to take my TI with me. Is there an emulator that supports serial connectivity? I have a WiModem232. I know that Stuart created a Python Script to Emulate the Lantronix Serial-to-Ethernet Adapter. Is there any way to leverage what is currently available? Is there any type of remote control software (VNC/RDP)/hardware (arduino) solution for the TI?
  10. AWESOME! Thank you sparkdrummer!!
  11. I was on from 9 PM EST to 9:40 PM EST. Sorry that you couldn't get connected.
  12. Good day everyone, I have a friend who contacted me recently. She dug her SX-64 out of storage that she bought new to run some games that she enjoyed playing some years before. She turned it on, and only gets a black screen (well, she described it as a white screen because she turned up the brightness when it didn't display anything). I told her that I would look at it, so I drove over to check it out. I confirmed that it displayed a black screen, no garbage. When I took the cover off, the rail on the right (from looking from the back of the unit) was broken. I asked her if she or anyone had it apart, and she told me that to her knowledge it had never been opened. The inside looked all original and I did not see anything that had been replaced. I spent some time cleaning it and checking all of the wire and board connections. I started to re-seat the socketed chips. The CPU board is a Rev A and I noticed that the 6510 MPU (ceramic type - original?) had thermal grease on the legs. I took it out and saw that the rightmost bottom leg (2?) was bent under the chip not inserted into the socket. I carefully straightened the leg and re-inserted it into the socket. No Change in symptoms. I tried taking out the SID, no change. I swapped out the PIA, no change. I swapped out the Kernal, no change. I am unable to locate a MPU to swap it out and I do not have the diagnostic cart & cables. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement MPU? If I can get a replacement and if it does not fix the issue, what should I try next? Does anyone offer diagnostic services?
  13. [email protected] this is so cool! Thank you so much for your knowledge and time spent. You ROCK!
