With the host device (C64), that makes five devices on the bus; which is standard. Unfortunately the tower owner hooked things up before testing; counter to my instructions and burned things up. So I never got to know how it worked. >The guy had sawed the > circuit board into pieces and soldered some traces with wires. :-) I have wanted to do that in the past and now find myself in the same position again. I have acquired some pee cee lunch box computers for my next mod; a C64/1541 w/ an LCD screen. Here's one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150113039045 And another: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110052728625 But the 64 mobo is too wide for them, all but one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320107360663 For this one I planned an automotive in dash DVD player with a motorized screen. A C64/1541/DVD Player: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290103929709 But I fallen in live with them as they are and am having a hard time taking a saw to them. > It'd > probably be much more productive to hack the 64DTV. I have two V2's on the way and a Hummer in hand. ;) - al - Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
