Replica 1 as dumb terminal

Postby stephen » Jun Sat 12, 2010 2:14 am

Using the Replica 1's RS232 port, is it possible to use the Replica 1 as a tv-typewriter terminal to interface another old system such as my IMSAI?

Probably not with the onboard serial port. The onboard port captures data going to the display and sends it out the serial port. Anything coming in the serial port is treated like a keystroke. I suppose it is possible, but the workload of the port would cause data drop on the port. There is however, the PockeTerm, designed to do just what you want the replica 1 to do.
