  1. ...and when it comes to cables... I found a bought female-female 9-pin nullmodem cable, and that just worked ( 2<->3, 3<->2, 5<->5 at least). Not sure if rts/cts and the others need connecting at the PC end, but I dont think so. I use a Deltaco UC-232C9.
  2. Most USB-RS232 adapters should work. I have run into problems here at work when communicating with older robot controllers using RS232 and some USB-RS232 converters. After some investigation they seem to add a linefeed after carriage return or the other way around, and that makes protocols like this crash... Driver problem!
  3. Yes. I have not checked anything in yet. I really should do that... I will post a Git link, probably late tonight. Best regards, Jonas
  4. Small update... As you can see I am not a graphics person. But it works so far. The deck can be controlled by the buttons top right and you can also play a track using the number button in the list. Buttons for writing updated track name, delete track, move track etc will be added shortly. :-)
  5. Worked a bit on this yesterday evening and I now am through the specification. Removed some bugs, optimized a bit... The code is still crappy and probably a few bugs are still lurking around, but now it works good enough to start making the real application. I will try to resolve annoying bugs along the way. :-)
  6. Haha, no problem whatsoever. =) I hope I will get my hands on an E12 too, soon. :-)
  7. Ah, I see... So you would like a sw that first performs the recording (you can do this yourself manually, of course, but using SW is cool) and then transfer the disc and track names. Should be possible. The problem is I don't have two machines to test with, but with some luck we can make it work anyway without too many problems. We will see when I get that far. :-)
  8. Or, of course, read the names from one disc and write them to another on the same machine. :-)
  9. Ah, you mean.... Attach two E12's and make it copy the track names from E12-1 to E12-2? Yes, why not? :-)
  10. =D Bought one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Coax-Coaxial-to-Optical-2-Way-Toslink-SPDIF-Digital-Audio-Converter-Adapter/173764038542?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Looks a bit small but the goal is to have it remove the copy protection while keeping the look. Might be hard to find a generic FPGA board that fits in there... In either case I should be able to use the PCB for easy connecting to an FPGA.
  11. ...and I don't think it can be controlled in the E11. And my other machines are consumer machines, so they will need an eliminator if I want to copy anything more than once. :-)
  12. Ah, cool! You figured out the Elektor state machine! Well done. :-) Designing that state machine must have been a real engineering job. :-)
  13. Ah. My next FPGA project will probably be a copy-bit eliminator. ;-) We will see how that turns out....
  14. And, what do you want to do with two linked E12?
  15. I thought of the Arduino, too... :-) I'm not sure what I would use it for, though. Making an answering machine is kind of out of date. :-) But I did think of making a jukebox. A 3d-printed mechanism to change discs would not be THAT hard, would it? A carousel with 50 discs should be no problem. And then an Arduino to control it all. :-) Perhaps with two players to have it play more or less without wait between songs. Will never have time for this, but cool it would be. Running the code I'm writing now on a Pi CAN be done using, for example, Mono. I'm not sure how the serial port will wor
