Source for DIN-14 and DB-19 connectors?

Do you have any reliable source for DB-19 (ACSI) and DIN-14 (FDD) plugs, which ships worldwide?

Re: Gotek external or floppy (mech) external

I'd really recommend you to upgrade your GOTEK with the OLED display and rotary encoder and forget about the AUTOBOOT.HFE.

Re: A/B drive swap switch

I'm only cutting a bridge between jumpers, not really a trace.

Re: Scart to HDMI Converter

I have tested two of these converters (along with a HDMI to VGA converter). One mentioned here is number 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y1fA_pYrU0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVmB_peH24M I've more liked number one and this one I've kept, the other one I've sold. Number 1 doesn't do as much ...

Re: Going Gotek - FlashFloppy How To

If you have any problem with connecting the flasher with the STM32 on Gotek, you may reduce the UART speed to 57600bps. It is also better to provide more reliable power source to the Gotek than 5V output from the USB-RS232 converter board. Oh... one more thing - stay tuned for FlashFloppy v0.9.7a as...

Re: ST RTC EXTERNAL BETA - WIP

You can battery backup the keyboard, have seen it done. But is rather power hungry to power the keyboard chip. That's why I was thinking rather about a pass-through device connected between keyboard and motherboard, that would set the RTC in the keyboard from the modern DS-1307 battery backed-up RT...
