I remember that one (especially since a lot of my early work was fiddling with CB2 sound and I didn't own a disk drive). > See > http://www.commodore.ca/manuals/commodore_pet_2001_quick_reference.pdf > which also notes "NOTE: Location 59467 must be reset to zero for > cassette to function properly". But that shift register isn't used for > cassette loading, right? It's not, but ISTR some vague stories about putting the shift register into free-running mode (which is how one gets sound) triggers some hidden problem. I'd love to know what is _really_ going on in there (not that we could fix the problem). I'm suddenly curious if the 65C22 has the same issue (I have a few of each; I should try it). -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2010-09-16 17:00:31
