No floating pins please :-)
And a 5V IDE LED connector would be perfect.

And yes, this card is a winner!

My board arrived today and soldered it up. Hopefully I can test it tomorrow!

Has anyone tested it in a 2000? I have rev 5/6/8 A500's and rev 4.3/6.x 2000's to test. Not sure how many of those I can get to this weekend though.

I developed it in the CDTV and A2000. A500 was an afterthought.

You removed the CDTV patches in the latest test firmware and while this one made the board work for me, will it still work on the CDTV? Just curious.

Will boot but the CD will not work.

In and working on my rev 6A A500 no real issues. Further testing tomorrow :)

My CPLD does get quite hot though - haven't tried any other firmware than 'full phase 7' yet.

IDE 1.5MB/s with 'cpu fastrom' - haven't tried mufastrom yet.

About CDTV situation. How it will perform with patches? I think that I read somewhere that CD works, but internal SCSI controller doesn`'t?

If CD works that would be enough, internat SCSI is slow compared to any IDE controller.

You could try initial firmware?
