Re: Design a small Sound card for Next

I am no expert but, as you say you will need to be in 48k or 128k mode and disable any conflicting devices. Definitely do not run above 3.5Mhz for the expansion BUS to work - later versions of the system will likely disable it at higher speeds anyway. I think you have already found that the -5v sign...

Re: Help: Legacy peripherals do not work on my 2A board

To get ESXDOS to work on the 48K/128K personality you need to make sure in the config that (SPACE on boot and the E) has DivMMC set to YES (NextZXOS does not need it so ignores it).

Re: Help: Legacy peripherals do not work on my 2A board

Indeed I have an Alphacom and Original Sinclair and the team are aware of that issue - a mod is needed to the printer decoding. Of course it will only work with 48K and 128k original ROM mode as well as Amstrad dropped support from +2a onwards.

Re: from Japan

Great news glad it works. Did you get all the rest of the distribution as well so that you have the latest FW 1.10c and NextZXOS2.00B ?
