Re: DiagROM works fine with TF536 in A2000, but no boot with kickstart, not even to early startup control

mrgo0se_1984 ?!?!? ... wouldn't trust that cowboy to wire a plug let alone build an accelerator, I suspect he doesn't know one end of a soldering iron from the other! :lol: @DX93 I will send out another card for you to try early this week. If that doesn't work with your setup then you can return th...

Re: TF536 compatibility with A2091 SCSI Card

This is the same issue that the CDTV has, and why I added this part to my Amibay FAQ.

The A2091 ROMs are notorious for their DMA issues. I think that if you really need a SCSI controller, you'll have to use a non-DMA one, like the Oktagon.

How to solve: TF536 freezing with high frequency disk access

I know my debugging occurs over a geological era, but eventually I get round to it... A while ago someone complained that his 536 was freezing when transferring specific types of files over the plipbox. I tried and failed to find that post so I am creating this one instead. Well, I think I finally f...

Re: Problems with A2000

You should specify which ROM version you have on the A2000.

A CIA failure can also cause this type of behaviour.

Re: A1200 HDD and WinUAE

You need to run WinUAE as administrator for it to be able to access the devices directly, otherwise it will not work.

Re: A1000 and TF536 with CF card

No, this is one of mine and I shipped it with a tested CF card which booted fine on my A500. Something else is up here.

The only thing that comes to mind is that somehow the CF card got loose during transport and is not making full contact...

Re: Has TF536 ability to operate in 7mhz stock mode?

Apologies if I'm not being precise here. Is it possible to run it just as m68k, no ram, no ide, no 030. If you load Kickstart 1.3 that's all you'll get. The fast ram and the IDE will be disabled and the CPU will only run at 7 Mhz. But some software incompatibility will still exist due to the presen...

Re: TF330 NVram issue

Yes to both questions, it disables cache. Is it the same as the "disable CPU caches" checkbox in early startup? There's one bit that's unclear for me. Sysinfo went down to ~8500 from ~9400, without CDIS shorted. By the way I do have MMUlib working, MMU is active. Shorting CDIS will further decrease...

Re: TF330 NVram issue

I upgraded the firmware to tf330r3_main_top.jed and jumpered "CDIS" and for now all seems to work... :-) I'm getting an empty list on nvram saves screen with rev3 board + firmware posted in this thread. Is it necessary to short CDIS? What does it do (too lazy to dig up the forum)? Any further speed...
