Just a direct connection without any active hardware in there? Since the CNT and SP outputs have open collector drivers, the L to H rise time is extremely slow, typically in the range of one microsecond. Since the switching point is not clearly defined on the voltage scale, it could happen that the CNT transition is detected when the SP signal didn't become stable yet. You can improve this by adding a LS14 Schmitt trigger gate before the inputs of each CIA, and inverting the output with a 7406. Just have a look into the 1571 schematics, it is done exactly this way in them! Nicolas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
