I hereby volunteer in building wire harnesses should that help in opening this project up to a bigger part of the community. Having built countless of fpv drones dealing with wire messes and crimping connectors doesn’t feel to alien or annoying to me :). I’m based in Sweden so shipping back to...
The backplate for those had both connectors on them, so still doesn’t check out 100%. At least we know some had some version of a DB15 on them..
Show him some of all the leboncoin ads selling SE’s for €50-100 😉. Good luck and let us know what you find!
The DisplayServer cards came with both a DB15 and a DB9, and I belive there were some accelerator cards offering an optional display out port. Anyhow, now that you’ve got us all intrigued you simply have to buy it and let us know 😅
What are they asking for it?
Just picked up this portable tv from around early 2000’s. Almost seems like a far related family member, you can clearly see where they got their inspiration from.
A small bummer was that it turned out to be 10” although the spec sheet said 9”. I guess due to the total/visible spec difference...
I posted a pic of my ColorCard SE/30 here: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/supermac-spectrum-24-project.25793/post-457522
What SE/30 card do you have? In case it got lost in the thread, I’m looking for a rom dump of the Spectrum SE/30 😊
Don't know if it's of any help, but just stumbled upon these SuperMac roms uploaded to archive.org for the Spectrum/8 III, Spectrum PDQ and the Thunder 24. Perhaps can be useful to compare against your dumps or different versions perhaps? https://www.buriedbits.org/a-whole-lotta-roms
Thanks, that strenghtens my belief these are indeed the same card, with just the rom being different.
According to the info I could find, the Specteum variant came first retailing for $1895 supporting up to 1024*768 at 256 colors. They later followed up with the budget oriented ”ColorCard”...
Well, after a new round of googling I managed to find the below image
Is it from you @beachycove ? Our cards look identical, would be super interesting to try the rom you have and see what that does :)
Super interesting thread. I have a somewhat related hypothesis on these cards. I just acquired a Supermac ColorCard SE/30 (courtesy of fellow 68kmla user @ktkm). After having vacuumed the web for details (not that I managed to find that much), I'm hoping this card may be identical hardware wise...
@joshc Thank you! Unfortunately havn’t had that much time to play around with it due to having two small kids, but at least I’m enjoying the looks off it often :)
@olePigeon I know! That’s what I love most about it!
It’s quite easy*, simply go to the dd-wrt interface and the config page for vlan. Once there untick ”auto negotiate” (this means the nic and switch try to decide speed by themselves), once unticked you can change the other options. For 10mbit half duplex all should be unticked except ”enabled”...
You should be able to set the link speed manually in DD-wrt. Set the port you’re connected to to 10mbit, half duplex and auto neg off and see if that helps. Also check the status lights on both your switch and nic to check that the connection has been established.
Haha @bcschmidt I guess I was one of those others on FB. It’s been bugging me for a year+ now. Excited to give ColorDesk a try, I believe thats’s the only one I haven’t tried so far. The one built into After Dark did not work for me on 7.5.5 & SE/30.
