  1. Recently, I traded a SATA, FireWire and USB 2.0 combo PCI Card with @Knez, with the SATA ROM flashed to the SeriTek 1S2 firmware, so he could use it with his Power Macintosh 5500, which is a single PCI slot machine, where such a card would be very useful. However, it turns out the Gazelle board PCI bridge patch did not alleviate the enumeration bug in combination with this card. The Gazelle board, used in the Power Macintosh 5500 and 6500, as well as the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh, has an unfortunate Open Firmware bug that causes PCI-PCI Bridge based cards to not enumerate beyond the PCI
  2. I recently acquired a TAM from Japan which works great. Inside, I was surprised to find an Interwire G3 L2 accelerator card. Unfortunately, there was no hard drive and no drivers for this card. Does anyone know where I can find a compatible driver for this card? I saw another thread which suggested that a generic Powerlogix card driver would work, but none of the drivers I’ve found actually do. The slot itself is fine, as a sonnet crescendo card that’s I have works well, but it normally lives in another machine. Second, the motherboard in this TAM is different from another TAM that I
  3. I recently got a TAM with a non working LCD and HDD. Managed to swap it out with an LCD of PowerBook 3400 and an IDE44 to CF as HDD. Installed OS9 and I don’t see the TV and Tuner apps. How should I get it working?
  4. Found one for sale with a rotten LCD. Powers up and just needed a replacement LCD. I doubt I can get a replacement easily, are there any compatible replacement available out there?
  5. Hey everyone, got my hands on a TAM recently, was in much better shape than advertised. Had all the original boxes, plastic wrap, foam, everything. Even the apple logo decals were still on their sheet! Had all sorts of accessories like an extra back, a riser card for the comm slot and also what appears to be an extra pci riser card as it already has one installed. In the PCI slot right now is a Twin turbo 128m/m2 and I had a Apple 10BASE-T Ethernet CSII Twisted-Pair Card in a 6500 that I was able to transfer over to the comm slot. That same 6500 had a PCI riser card that had two PCI slo
  6. Hi all, I ran into a Farallon EtherTX 10/100 CS ii card yesterday and won the auction this morning. I was surprised to see another bidder put up quite a battle near the end for it...I was half expecting to get it for pretty cheap... so I was wondering if anyone here has experience using this card in their TAM? Or other Mac.. What kind of performance difference, if any, do you notice? Some auction pics, of course, as I don’t yet have the card: I’ve read some posts of members searching for this one, but not so much on how much it helps for web surfing/Classi
  7. I never thought I would get one of these...for a quasi-reasonable price anyway. Listed for $999 on ebay, put in a best offer of $900 and won it. Looks to be in great shape I may just need to re-do the speaker covers and leather on the keyboard at some point (certainly isn't terrrible now.) Will be keeping an eye out for the UPS man this week! Now................what to do with/on this thing? Original listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Twentieth-20th-Anniversary-Macintosh-TAM-Mac/282459152220?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
  8. Hi everybody, So the TV in our bedroom broke and I've been (stubbornly) pushing the 20th Anniversary Mac I had hiding in the closet as a replacement, ignoring my husband's pleads for a TV set. I thought it would be great: Nice sound system. Remote that controls not only the sound but also the can turn the Mac on/off. TV input (btw, kudos, Verizon, for having everything from RF to HDMI outputs on your set top boxes.) Software with CC support from RF (again, Verizon, kudos, for not stripping that out from RF.)[1] But the problem is Apple Video Player supports a maximum 640x480 resolut
  9. I received a TAM for my birthday this year and am already looking at upgrade options. Of course I'd love a Sonnet Crescendo/L2 upgrade, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one. Even a bigger L2 cache card would be nice, but that stuff is getting super hard to find. I'm already planning on getting 128MB RAM and putting in an SSD with an IDE adapter (did the same thing on my 12" PowerBook G4 and it works wonderfully). It came with a 10/100 ethernet Comm II card and the PCI riser, so I'm planning on getting either a FW+USB card or finding a PCMCIA/CardBus adapter that works in OS 9.
