Re: MZ 700 - rear view

I gathered that but when I saw the different rear view images in "Sharp MZ700/8000 - EXPOSED-" by John Simpson, I thought it no good looking at the MZ700 spefications it's a MZ800. and gave a the functions of the slots, why duplicate these functions. As you said we must see the inside. I have seen 2...

Re: MZ 700 - rear view

Sorry to raise you hopes it is a MZ700, the "Sharp MZ700/8000 - EXPODED-" by John Simpson has the rear image of the MZ700 on page 5 as a mirror image.
The MZ800 rear image on page 6 is correct with the system switches visible.
Your image after saving and previewing, I can not see the switches.

Re: MZ 700 - rear view

From the position of the reset button and the volume control on the righthand side of the connectors indicate you have a MZ800 not a MZ700.
The large connector with the system switches and the joystick i/o port.
The small connector is for printer output.

Re: CP/M on the MZ-80A

The SUC online magazines are normally a few years behind current versions for obvious reasons as the SUC is still active. Current magazines 2019 vol1 and the 2019 vol2 are for SUC members. The SUC Sharp Users Club will be 40 years old in 2020. You can still join for 2019 and receive copies of vol 1 ...

Re: [MZF] MZ7: MZF file compressor using ZX7 algorithms

Hi The Arduino is a replacement for faulty tape units I have 4, and I mentioned it because I used the comment area with the Arduino HS down loader, so wished to keep this area free. But having been reminded that other users may have used this area before me, I may have to change the displayed option...

Re: [MZF] MZ7: MZF file compressor using ZX7 algorithms

The standard and turbo are the Einar Saukas DZX7_STANDARD and DZX7_TURBO decoders. I activate my high speed down loading code held in the tape header by having a 3 byte program, that contains JP $11A3, the Arduino then switches to 57600baud rate serial and send the real file, Hu-basic 25KB in 5 sec,...

Re: [MZF] MZ7: MZF file compressor using ZX7 algorithms

I probably have more tapes than you, I have copies of the Sharp Libraries, and it was the second tape I tried to to compress that highlighted the problem. Secondly I need the comment area free to hold my High Speed serial transfer code that has transfer rates of 5KBytes/sec on a 2MHz k/a 10K at 4MHz...

Re: [MZF] MZ7: MZF file compressor using ZX7 algorithms

The standard, turbo and the smart RSC with the Spectrum video mapping removed will load at $11A4 and do not reach $11FD the load address of the MZ80A tape basic SP-5510, I have created a auto-run feature for SP-5510 basic which saves the basic and BTX file as a M/C file that loads and runs from the ...
