Re: USB Hub board

Can I simply DIY a cable for the USB hub from a micro USB cable, or does the id/sense pin need to be connected to ground?

Re: Original analog video without I/O board? Possible!

I bought a QGeeM HDMI to VGA adapter on Aliexpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32864796089.html, that one also has an unsupported adapter chip, ones with AG6200 are quite hard to find. Five out of six adapters I have bought have an unsupported chip. The UGreen one I bought have a supported chip...

You should compare the port and bits for the pins between the two boards (They look like: PD1,PB5,PF0 etc.)

As long as the board has the Atmega32u4 processor and the same pins are available, you are good to go!

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Hi ! Did you people also notice the mouse movement under the Workbench is difficult to master / inconsistent / kinda jerky ? I tried different mouses. I don't remember it was that way on a real Amiga but I may be mistaken. Do you have the latest version? It used to be jerky, but Sorgerlig has fixed...

Yep, as djsquare suggested, set PARALLEL_UPDATE="false" in update.ini and you should be OK!

You can cut one end of a cheap RJ11 6P4C cable and wire it directly to the Arduino/Teensy.

Re: MiSTer and Mega ST keyboard...

Do you want to connect it to the Linux side? As other mentioned, there are adapters for normal (non Mega ST) keyboards. The Mega ST keyboard connector lacks the reset signal that the other ST keyboards have. I don't know if this is critical for those adapters or not. I think the adapters will work ...

Re: MiSTer and PVM resolution?

It seems like PVMs are a bit flaky, people are having various issues. I have tried several consumer CRT televisions and they have worked very well with 50Hz and 60Hz, switching between those refresh rates without a problem. I'm now using a run-off-the-mill Philips 25", the picture is really good! Ma...

Re: MiSTer and Mega ST keyboard...

Haven't tried but maybe this project could work(?): https://github.com/devonshire/arduino-a ... d-keyboard . An Arduino Pro Micro clone costs only a couple of euros and the wiring is simple. I don't know if the Mega ST uses the same keyboard connection (serial data) as the one used in the project.

I had those kind of issues with adapters using other video converter chips than AG620x, does your adapter have an AG620x chip?

Would be good if you would move/fork this repo to MiSTer-devel. I plan to add more converters for other controllers based on your code to the same repo.

Shouldn't be, as before I'm only using the HID library that comes with the Arduino IDE. But to clear the serial number I did the small change in USBDesc.h:

Code: Select all

You can't delete field. Just make it empty (several space symbols) - it's enough. I made progress with the two controller adapter today but still having problems.
