Hi: Ok, so I've tried the Serial I/O card on 4 different setups now, and I've only gotten it to work on 2. It works like a charm when hooked up to Com1 on my old laptop running hyperterminal. It doesn't seem to work at all with either my USB-to-Gport adapter or my Stealth Serial port. It DOES work w...

Heya: What type of USB-to-Serial adapter are you using? I know that I have two different ones for my macs, one is a USB to 9-pin (RS-232) adapter, and the other is a USB to dual g-port one (I.E. it replicates the old Mac Printer and Modem ports). I have both types, both made by Kensington. I also ha...

Bill:

Good luck with the build! It's a fun one! I'm still really curious to hear how that little LCD works out!

Your pictures are great, I've still been too lazy to post up all the pics I took of my build, but I will.. I swear... someday.. maybe..

Cheers

M.

Nice LCD! Let me know if it works with the Replica-1! I've been looking at various small LCDs, too. I'd like to build the Replica-1 into a case that has a built-in LCD on it. About the power-supply issues, Vince mentioned in another thread that if you're only using a PS2 Keyboard, then you only need...

Sony Wega vs. Zenith Cheapo!

So, I first tried my replica 1 with my expensive Sony Wega CRT monitor, and I got a really jittery, unstable output. You could still see what was going on, but it was basically untenable for any real use! However, I tried an old, clapped out Zenith TV I had in the closet and the signal is clear and ...

I can't wait for mine to arrive; I ordered a couple of days ago. I just finished building the Southern Cross 1, a Z80-based single-board computer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrbill/sets/739140/ It looks more complicated than the R-1, so I figure I won't have any problem at all... Bill Bill: That ...

MyrddynX< Congrats on the build, it's great building a kit and having no problems. I'm curious how you were short a capacitor but since I hand assemble the kits it can happen. If you feel you need the cap, let me know and I'll mail it off to you. The only time I have run into strange video signal t...

YAY! IT WORKS! I finished assembling the kit about a half hour ago and I just booted the computer for the first time! Worked like a charm first try! I seem to be getting weird, jittery video output on my Sony TV, but I read that many people have that problem on certain monitors. I've got some other ...

Meh... I seem to be short by one 1-microfarrad capacitor... Ah well, no big deal, I'll just have to pick one up this weekend. Other than that, so far so good. I've gotten all the resistors, diodes, and caps installed (minus the one missing cap, of course!) Well on my way to a replica-1 now! :D Cheers

It Arrived!

Yay! My Replica 1 Kit arrived yesterday! All I've had time for so far is to do a parts inventory, and it looks like everything arrived A-OK! Hopefully, I can get some time this weekend to start the assembly. I'm sure I'll be back on these forums just as soon as I encounter my first problem! :D Cheers
