Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Congratulations Troed on finding this valuable bit of evidence, it seems like we are narrowing down the problem quite a bit today! I assume the FPGA-Shifter is already able to output the contents of the palette registers Yep, it's working fine here. I discussed this stuff a bit with Troed earlier in...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Is it possible that the difference is that when running with the FPGA connected, there was no plug in the video out socket, while when you were running an original shifter you always had one plugged in Hmm, that doesn't make enough sense. I should have thought about it for longer. The plug only gro...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Wow. It absolutely is. Connected up an HxC slim to my beautiful internal floppy header in the 520ST and booted ... Closure. No resets at all. So previously I had looked at /MONOMON with my LA to see if it triggered - since one of the few ways an ST resets cleanly is when TOS detects a mono monitor ...

Re: php upload scripts

744 should be fine, although it's more common for read and execute to be set together, for directories. Without +x, nobody can see the file listing within a directory.

Since it seems that www-data will be the only one accessing the files, the "group" and "public" permissions won't be used anyway.

Re: Hello from the USA

What layout program would you recommend? Eagle used to be a good choice from what I'm told but now thats its changed hands they want a yearly maintenance fee which I would like to avoid. Eagle seems to be the best choice in terms of quality and features (I believe that's what Exxos uses), but I use...

Re: Hello from the USA

Hi Paul! Coincidentally, I'm based in Canberra myself and was a firmware developer for a year. Welcome to the Exxos community. There's never been a better time in history to learn how to get PCBs made. With all free tools you can have 10 boards made for less than 35AUD. I would be happy to help anyt...

Re: My new USB microscope.

I just bought one of those Chinese $25AUD USB microscope off eBay, not expecting much, if anything at all. But the picture quality is pretty decent for the price! It looks a lot better "live" than this single frame due to the fact that it's sending video with a good frame rate. Of course, not compar...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

but knowing how screwy these machines are, whos to say the extra load on VSYNC isn't causing ringing on the GLUE Yeah, I agree. It could also be bad grounding since my entire board is powered and grounded through a single pin each in an IC socket, which is probably not the best if it's going to dra...
