TZXDuino in the wild

One of the things we've wanted from this project is for people to go out and build their own versions and show us pictures.

Well Piotr Bugaj not only has built his own but 3D printed his own case and designed a Shield for the Nano.
 

 SMD version.

 









 Non SMD version














 

Piotr has also released the schematic, pcb, and gerber files. They can be downloaded from here.

  1. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and thanks for this project.
    I would like to share with you a very useful little modification, I have just added a switch and a battery to the assembly to avoid using a power adapter, thus releasing the assembly and giving it greater mobility.

  2. Plans for the channels launch came about when it was announced in June 2012 that the broadcast rights to the Premier League from the 2013–14 to 2015–16 season were awarded to BT and BSkyB, outbidding existing broadcaster BT SPORT 1 for the rights. BT showed 38 live matches from the Premier League each season, including 18 first pick matches, from the 2013/14 season to the end of the 2015/16 season.

    In October 2012 BT announced it had also agreed deals to air Serie A, Ligue 1, all of which were previously broadcast on BT sport 1

    In January 2013 BT announced they will also broadcast Women's Tennis Association matches from 21 tournaments. Bt Sports 1 Hd Acestream

    On 25 February 2013, BT announced that it had acquired BT's Uk channels and their sports broadcasting rights, consisting of rights to the FA Cup, UEFA Europa League, Scottish Premier League, Bundesliga and NASCAR. This led to the shutting down of ESPN Classic.

New Firmwares With New Features

Thanks to the help of Rafael Molina Chasserot some new features have been added to the TZXDuino and CASDuino firmwares which has freed up some memory as well, which may lead to more features being added in the future.
A percentage counter and a timer counter have been added to all screens so that you know how much is left of a file to play and how long it has taken to load.
The OLED1306 and PCD8544 use completely new routines for the firmwares saving a lot of memory.
Folder navigation is now different. Rather than using the Menu button on TZXDuino or the Stop button on CASDuino to return to the ROOT directory, if you press the stop button when no file is playing you will go up one folder only making it easier to navigate.

TZXDuino
The TZXDuino has had a menu added so that MSX users can set the Baud rate of TSX files so that they can load faster than normal.
A few more emulator only IDs have been fixed so that they are skipped by TZXDuino.

CASDuino
CASduino has had a Baud Rate of 3675 added to…

TZXDuino 1.7

This fixes issues with pause lengths that we never noticed before. It should fix games like Top Gun and Street Hawk for the Spectrum and make CDT files behave as they should for the Amstrad CPC.Changes.
*Maximum pause length of 8.3 seconds due to the TimerOne library has been worked around.
*ID20 Pause Block fixed.
*Temporary fix for pause after motor control removed.https://mega.nz/#!aEt1VJKZ!ZFw-fP3bkNTtiPlbG_IllmR94Xni3KvIGUn6Jggfof8

Finally the PCD8544. Almost.

For the last few months I've been talking about how to add the PCD8544 (also known as the Nokia) screen to the devices.
Unfortunately this has not been as easy as I'd first hoped largely due to differences in the screens. Some work well with the standard 5v of the Arduino Nano, others need the voltage in to be 3.3v. Some need resistors others don't. Finally however I can start to write things up properly though.
The software has been written and is fully functioning for a while and whilst there are no improvements in what the ArduiTape/CASDuino/TZXDuino can do, it does use less memory than the other screens and looks a little nicer, in my opinion.


CASDuino Turns Two.
I have been reminded by my Facebook posts that today I completed my first CASDuino specific PP9 build two years ago today.
I used the PP9N Evatron case as I was inspired by one of the TAPuino builds and it's a nice case to work with.
Certain small things have changed since then, button caps, reset switch, diffe…
