Re: NOOO.. My just arrived TS 1500 is flakey!

Wellp. Seller agreed to refund. As much as I wanted to keep the 1500, I really had no use for a dead Timex 1500. bummer.

Re: NOOO.. My just arrived TS 1500 is flakey!

Got a hold of the seller.. Seems to be concerned and willing to work with me. I tried another power supply from my working 1000 system that works with the RAMPAK. Same issue. Scrambled video. Don't know what I will do. On one hand; I have the complete setup for a 1500 with 2020 and manuals, tapes an...

NOOO.. My just arrived TS 1500 is flakey!

I purchased a "Tested and working" Timex 1500 complete "kit" off eBay. It arrived today! WooHoo! Unfortunately the 1500 tries to boot but it displays thin lines and never boots up completely. Tested the PS and TV hookup with a known working TS 1000 just fine.. Pulled the cover and other then one key...

Re: EightyOne 1.14 not recording from cassette?

Ok.. I got it now.. The "Record" function is to record the EMULATORS save to .wav.

I will keep using Audacity and wav to p to import.

lol.

Thanks for the clarification!!

Re: EightyOne 1.14 not recording from cassette?

Ok. I built another PC. I have my cassette player plugged into the MIC port on the PC. I run EightyOne1.14 and goto the WAV loader. I select the NEW icon, then I hit the RECORD (red) button on the window. I then press PLAY on my real tape player. Nothing gets captured in the WAV loader. I tried both...

Re: EightyOne 1.14 not recording from cassette?

Hmm.. Thats what I'm doing. There is never any audio recorded in there.. Just buzzing.

Maybe there is something with my PC (Intel i7/Win7-64). Odd since Audacity works flawlessly via the MIC input.

I will try another PC this evening.

At least I know it's SUPPOSED to work. :)

EightyOne 1.14 not recording from cassette?

Messing with archiving my old (1980s) cassettes for my TS1000. Importing them via Audacity works then converting them with wav2p. I see that the emulator EightyOne has a nifty WAV recorder built in? When I try recording it's blank.. Is there a secret to loading real tapes in the emulator or is that ...

Re: Looking for Z-XLR8 speedloader

YES! Thank you!! I have a bunch of tapes from 1984ish that I used it on. Would like to see if I can still pull the data. Plus, it was an awesome little program! I work late tonight but will be messing with it this weekend for sure! I need to learn to convert .p to .wav anyway. Being a huge computer ...

Looking for Z-XLR8 speedloader

My tape of Z-XLR8 is no longer readable.. If ANYONE has the files it would be great! I have some programs from 1984ish that I cannot read without it again.
