Re: SV FW rev 10 and new Svethlana driver

Yes, I forgot to mention that the Ethernat also has only four packet buffers, two in each direction. But this is its maximum, because of how the ethernet MAC+PHY chip 91C111 is designed. I'm surprised that you got as high as 600KB/s on the ethernat, but maybe you're just much closer to the test ser...

Re: SV FW rev 10 and new Svethlana driver

Hi all! :) Yesterday evening we put a new SV firmware at nature.atari.org, rev 10. Thanks for the new firmware. Great news. One question: What's the speed of svethlana with the new drivers compared to ethernat now? Edit: Did the above mentioned test on my machine with ethernat. Got approx. 600k/sec...

I just saw that you already put the atari updater program onto your website. Thank you. Downloaded, programmed, rebooted, everything's fine. 8)

BTW, programming the new firmware took 1 minute 39 seconds.

Re: SV FW rev 9

Hi! Yesterday we added a new firmware, rev 9, to nature.atari.org. You need a JTAG cable to upgrade. The new FW contains a FIFO port register for queuing up to 56 blitter operations. The memory map has also been updated to reflect this. That's great news. Can you explain what the advantage of this ...

It helped. Perhaps not for my current project (I replaced the fan with a very quiet one a few days ago) but as I also own several other falcons it was a very useful information for future improvements. :D

Falcon replacement fan

Hi all, I like to replace the noisy fan in my Falcon. A nice service guy at sepa-europe suggested to replace it with a fan of this type: MFB40H12L but it has a noise of 17 dB(a) which seems pretty loud to me. The rest of the specs is: rotor speed: 3,800rpm, max. air flow 7.1 m^3/h (http://www.sepa-e...

ST high is always 72Hz even on unmodified STs.

Re: SuperVidel driver annoyances?

I've never liked fVDI, but it was my initial choice for the SuperVidel. When I saw the sources, the "portable" driver examples, it pissed me off. I won't touch it until it's properly cleaned up (not by me). Nova VDI rocks though. Now that sources of both fVDI and Nova VDI are available pe...

I'll add it, then. At least for the digital DVI output. Great. Thanks in advance. Normal, unfortunately.

Indeed. Falcon with ct/SuperVidel/EtherNat feels (nearly) like a modern computer.

Might be interesting to know how many SuperVidels are already in use.

So DON'T try to update the SuperVidel with svupd005.app BEFORE you updated ct60/63 to the correct abe and sdr versions.

updating supervidel with jtag cable on falcon

Hi there,

I've got one question:

Is it possible to flash the SuperVidel with the ATARI and jtag cable?

I mean I have the jtag cable for the parallel port of the ATARI to flash abe/sdr and I want to use the same configuration for the SuperVidel.

Re: Yeah! SvperVidel arrived today!

Now that my SuperVidel arrived I tried to put it into the original Falcon case but found out that it collides with the harddisk tray.

So the question is: Where can I put the harddisk instead?
