    The move is complete, but the tweaking has only just begun

    It came from this thread in the Tandy forums: https://forum.vcfed.org/index.php?threads/tandy-tl-2-with-xt-ide-memory-map-questions.50558/

    The move is complete, but the tweaking has only just begun

    Yeah I did notice that some did work. I was mostly browsing the Tandy forums when I noticed that most links to threads that I came across led to a 404, while a few did work.

    The move is complete, but the tweaking has only just begun

    Is there a way to get the existing forum links to work again or to redirect to the migrated threads? IE: http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcforum/showthread.php?43104-Tandy-1000-SX-with-ISA-CompactFlash-Adapter-problems-flashing&p=343625#post343625 Simply gives a 404 error. There are so many...

    Tandy 1000 TL/2 video trouble-shooting

    SOLVED! Thank you @Eudimorphodon, I am very grateful. My cable had all wires connected. I opened it up and snipped pin 7 from both ends to be safe and I now have a crystal clear picture. The 1084-D does not like anything on Pin 7 unless you are in Analog (Amiga) mode where it is mapped to...

    Tandy 1000 TL/2 video trouble-shooting

    Yeah, this model is the Daewoo version so you never know I guess. It makes sense because when I do switch the computer to monochrome which is on Pin 7 then the 1084 screen is a bunch of green lines and unreadable. So that makes me hope that pin 7 is the culprit and the 1084 is wigging out. I...

    Tandy 1000 TL/2 video trouble-shooting

    Oh. I didn't know that. Hopefully I didn't screw up anything. I tested the cable and I am pretty sure it is all the wires so hopefully that is all it is. So Pin 7 is Green - mono according to the pinout and pin 7 in TTL mode on the 1084 is supposed to be not connected but in RGB A mode it is...

    Tandy 1000 TL/2 video trouble-shooting

    I was able to exit out of DeskMate and get to a DOS prompt and at first I thought it was normal as the C:\ prompt was clear. But when I typed it started to skew the signal and a DIR listing shows in one of the screenshots I have attached below. I guess this could be a problem with the 1084...

    Tandy 1000 TL/2 video trouble-shooting

    Hello Tandy folks, I recently acquired a very clean Tandy 1000 TL/2 and am running into some issues. The computer seems to boot fine but the picture is garbled. I thought I had the screenshots on my phone but I will post them later. I am hooking it up to my Amiga's 1084-D monitor and have...

    Any interest in C64 Super Snapshot v5 DIY PCBs?

    I did an order of these at OSHPark in April of 2020 (3 PCBs for $44). I built up a board and it did not work. I tested all the chips with a chip tester and by swapping chips with my original SS5 that I own. I could not get it to work. I built a 2nd one and got the same result. The C64 would...

    amiga 500 work bench disk?

    I can second the GreaseWeazle it works great. If you happen to have a Kryoflux that will work too. Also a copy of Amiga Forever or Amiga Explorer and a Null modem cable can be used to transfer files too. If you get really stuck there are probably users in your local area that can help you out...

    How do you setup and have room for all your Classic Computers?

    Hi All, Since unloading my storage a few years ago (2014) that had all my Commodore, Amiga and older Mac stuff in it I have run into a bit of a problem. I don't have enough space for all this stuff. And I am having a hard time figuring out how I can have several computers hooked up and usable...

    Soyo 5TA2 Socket 7 motherboard advice

    Hi, I found this motherboard at a local thrift store for $3. I have no idea if it works yet because I haven't had a chance to throw some RAM in it and a video card and hook it up. It seems to have a Pentium 90 CPU installed with no heatsink which makes me a little leery about heat. I have a...

    G3 won't boot at power on until reset

    I have a beige G3 tower (newer revision) that I recently repartitioned the HD to make sure the system software was located on the first 8GB and now it is doing something peculiar. When I turn it on with either the adb keyboard or the power button it does not boot at first. It makes the chime...

    Hi All, Recently I have been experimenting with SCSI 10k drives as replacements for older dead original Mac SCSI drives with some of my older Power Macintosh systems (7500, 8100, etc...) I know this is nothing new but information that I have found on other forums is somewhat spread out and not...

    Power Macintosh G3 Beige Tower Battery Blow up solution

    Hi, I recently picked up a Tower G3 beige that was classified as working and no problems. It works, except the drive is dead and the battery was corroded and it looks like it corroded part of the case frame in a 3 inch diameter with some nasty rust. Very irritating. The battery holder...
