Re: RTC board

hmm, I guess I will add some more details about console and ssh connection to the wiki and add a test section to the assembly guides. :D

Re: RTC board

I connected via SSH (Wiki) to the MiSTer Board and stored/read the RTC values with both commands from sorgeligs previous post:

Re: I/O Board thread

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any 3 or 5 pin female Arduino header. I will give it another look. 3pin connector is not arduino, but normal female connector with standard pin length. You just need to solder it higher than original. It's still possible to solder. 5pin connector - you won't find it p...

Re: I/O Board thread

you can see on my picture above, it should be female connector, not male! You cannot simply swap the female to male as it won't be compatible with future expansions. It's better not solder it at all and let the end user to solder if they will use extension boards. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any...

Re: I/O Board thread

that's fine, those are pin 10 and 12 of the GPIO Connector and belong to GND. But this brings up the questions: What is the reason that you cut the polygon around pin 10, sorgelig? ... and why do you pull pin 10 down in the first place? http://image.ibb.co/dxc0b5/Connected_Pins_GPIO.png

Re: I/O Board thread

I spy a battery slot at the bottom. Is that for an RTC? Also, I wonder if you could make the board slightly longer so it can be screwed to the other side as well? It's purely esthetic so I suppose you have your reasons, not to... (cheaper?) Just compared the costs. it would drive the board price up...

Re: MiSTer for Dummies

I have added a setup guide for absolute beginners to the wiki. This might be a bit too basic for most MiST / MiSTer veterans here in the forum, but it will hopefully help completely new users with their first setup.

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

I must be missing something but how come MiSTer (mini MIST) does not run ST... Wasnt MIST first made for ST then Amiga? I think the name is derived from the fact that it's based on the MiST firmware for the core management. As far as I know, the AtariST Source of the MiST is not available. That mak...

Brutal criticism here but at least honest :lol:

Do you have something particular in mind? Brutal man with a hat sounds already oddly specific.

Re: Add-on soldering talk and experience share

About connectors for buttons and LEDs: If you use a bare pin connectors like on picture above, then it's advised to remove unconnected pins. They are key-pins. The female connectors need to have this pin sealed, so it will prevent wrong direction. Wrong direction may potentially damage the board. T...
