Re: What retrocomputers/retroconsoles/diy hw do you own?

Ha! As much as I love retro stuff, I looked for a lot of stuff over the years but never commited to anything (much to my chagrin :roll: ). Besides a NES, SNES, Genesis V1 , gameboy original, gameboy color, DS original and DS lite, still have my very first PC, a venerable Tandy 1000. For its time, th...

Re: Uzenet

I missed the bit about the PS2 keyboard. I totally agree it's very useful to have that interface and i used it a lot for the dev of the uzenet stuff. I have the small PCB required to build the interface. PM your address and i will send you one with a attiny Flashed with the required software. The sc...

Re: Uzenet

I have made more work on the uzenet demo lately, hopefully that will fix the compile problems you had. I will commit it this week. And also will test with the uzenet module v2. I didn't do since all the dev was done on the latest PCB with the esp-12 on board. Btw, Do you have that board? The uzenet ...

Re: Uzenet

It would be a really cool idea if it could pull down a menu of games from a server which could then be downloaded (individually or in part) onto the SD card. That's a very neat idea and certainly feasible. If you can expose a REST endpoint to get a binary of some game, it can be downloaded directly...

Re: The quest to a portable Uzebox - update!

Update time! I'ts been a long time, been quite busy with those other things in life :) but was regularly working on it. So happy new year to all! uzebox_portable_1_4.jpg Well, rev 1.3 didn't work so well. The idea of plugging the 8266 directly on the battery kinda work when the battery was getting l...

Re: The quest to a portable Uzebox - update!

Oh yes, of course, the schematic...that would help! :) Here's the latest schematic, PCB & BOM. I'm starting to build the latest rev, so hopefully moving the esp12 away will do the job. *praying* Edit: Important, I just realized the BOM is not up to date, some parts are wrong so don't use right away,...

good work.

The other thing you can do aside from moving the noise radiator (ESP8266) further away is to lower the susceptibility of the audio amp.
Any concrete suggestions for that?

Re: The quest to a portable Uzebox - update!

Update time: unsatisfied with the previous revision I worked on yet another one and I really hope it's good this time. I moved the esp8266 much farther away from the amp since as Cunningfellow mentioned it indeed caused interferences in the lm386 when close. This time, i planned a header to be able ...

Re: Uzenet

Yes Lee is right, software reset is *essential* in this case. :)
