just to report the success of the above configuration. I have a 32 pin TOS 2.06, and I wanted to use the Dallas DS1216 Real-time clock. The chip suggested in another thread was the DS1216E, which is a 28 pin, but there is also the DS1216F version, which is 32 pin. So I acquired it, installed it in my Atari, used the A-Real 3.7 software...and it works like a charm!

That answers & confirms the question of STE use.. there is no reason why the 1.6x TOS won't work as well.
Great to see guys experimenting. ... oops hang on....!

The DS1216F is more expensive than expected...

After looking at the code, I'm not sure it's detecting my DS1216F or not. It doesn't seem to identify whether it was successful

It's hard with your version as there isn't anything to configure or confirm if it found anything. Coupled with this additional bug of running additional programs to confirm the date/time it's not workable for me unfortunately.
