Hello Colin, I think that I got such a cartridge about two years ago. I haven't tested it, since I prefer to use my Digital VT-420 or VT-220 terminal. Is there a halfway decent terminal program for the VIC-20? I think that the VIC-1011A is a genuine VIC-20 product. I'm forwarding your message to the cbm-hackers mailing list, in case someone has anything to follow up to the discussion. Note to cbm-hackers audience: please remember to add a Cc: to Colin. I didn't know that the RS-232 interface of the plus/4 user port was pin-compatible with the software-emulated interface on the C64 and VIC-20 user ports, but it sounds plausible. When it comes to wiring diagrams, you can find simpler ones at <URL:http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/documents/projects/rs232/>. I like especially the one described in the file rs232-userport-9600.zip. To my knowledge, its acceleration only works in the C64 and C128.

I have one of these devices, and I think it is probably quite rare. I can't prove however that it was not really a C-64 vintage device. I've used it in the past to connect a C/Plus 4 to a mainframe, which certainly produced a few chuckles at the time. The plastic case was clearly intended for a VIC-20/C64 shaped computer since it fouled the Plus/4 and had to be temporarily removed. Is this device documented anywhere? If you would like more info such as wiring diagram and pictures, just let me know.
