Do you still need more feedback?

I can set it up if needed, but I need to know if my testing would be any value?

Seems to be working! EIDE is at 5.2MB/s performance seems excellent (not sure if I've tested this same firmware?) - Still cannot get beyond 62.5Mhz, but I assume that's related to the chip speed stuff and the clocking change you talked about?

Fantastic pushing this update out =D

I think all testing is valuable… this doesn’t have the blinks lights extras though.

Thanks for beta FW :-). Is it technically possible that in the future the FW can be upgraded from a CF card on IDE TF1260?

FLASHED. !!
seems stable, might say kind of sluggish, dont take that the wrong way, i am just trying to help with some feedback.

ehide speed is showing me an impressice 2.654.... 2.7xxx .

when i say sluggish i mean like it stalls for a sec then catches up, repeat. hopw this helps.

nice to see an update, Thanks
Are you sure you are using the EIDE port there (the IDE connector on the TF1260) - and testing a drive on that interface, rather than mobo IDE? You should get around 2.6MB with onboard, but much faster (eg. > 4MB) on the EIDE interface. What do you mean by "sluggish" - I see no problems like that here?

Run bustest.

I do not understand "stalls for a sec then catches up".

EDIT: e.g. I need something more specific. I see no lag on 2-3 setups i have here with this and I've no idea what software you're using.

No you can't do it with a Blaster...A raspberry pi can if you have one
