Nice! I've thought about getting a 6500 board for my machine, but I like m68k. Who can't say no to one of the fastest 68k macs ever, with a 40MHz 040 :evil:.

Innes, if you are looking for a remote, Sony TV and VCR/DVD player remotes of the mid to late 90s work with this machine.

Macintosh SE SuperDrive, Macintosh SE/30, Apple IIgs ROM3, ImageWriterBanger II. Currently building the amazing 68040! Performa (Quadra??!!) 638CD gets 40MHz full '040 [;)] , Ethernet, 136MB RAM, AV input card, and maybe something else. Should have performance comparable to the Quadra 840av when done! (A/UX doesn't work, but I still like this little guy right here: [:P] )
Love programming for GS/OS and System 6/7.

Maybe i'll try getting the Wii U Gamepad to talk to it :p

An inexpensive universal remote ought to work just fine.

Yes a universal remote should work, just make sure you get the right code entered into it.

I was chiming in from personal expirience.

To be honest, the units right next to me when I use it. I can't see a remote being much use :p

 

But, my Ethernet card is on the way so good news there.

Which ethernet card did you order?

Innes, if you ever get a full 040, NetBSD is worth checking out on that machine. It's fun to play around with a Unix-like OS on this hardware.

 

Also, the AV input card can also be used to record the input too. Don't expect much in the quality department, but it is possible.

I got the card linked earlier in the thread. Seems good, and if the floppy with the driver is duff, its not an issue as someone popped it on the garden.

 

It's ability to record with the AV card is interesting, but it looks like its limited to 240 so it doesn't have much use. I have an EyeTV stick for my Macbook Air that can record composite and whatever the TV cable is called. ^_^

Regarding popping a fully blown 040 in there, its probably not on the cards. There are a few logic boards on US ebay but the prices seem to be the same as what I paid for the entire unit, and then the same again to ship it out here, in comparison to the ethernet card which was quite keenly priced.

 

On account that its running everything pretty well, I don't think I really need to do this :)

Unless you have a program that can take advantage of the FPU, or you are interested in running Unix on there, the LC040 is quite good for Mac OS. I think some people here on these forums underestimate the LC040. Sure, I will agree it's lobotomized, but that doesn't mean it's bad for what it's supposed to do. Perhaps the most ridiculous thing about the LC040 is its error-ridden FPU emulation. Supposedly that was fixed, but at the same time, I keep reading NetBSD's documentation giving LC040 owners a stern warning about using that CPU with NetBSD.

 

I bought just the bare CPU. I didn't buy the CPU already attached to a logic board, it *is* socketed. I had an application to use the FPU, as well as a burning desire to run *nix on this computer, so full 040 was a necessity for me. For many people, LC040 is good enough for Mac SSW.
