Re: Battery life

You should definitely update to DMCP 3.9a because that fixes an issue with powering the QSPI chip down.

Battery drain when powered down should be around 6uA, not 500uA.

Re: Solver bug for secondary roots?

The "ENTER" in line 04 disables stack lift so the 7 that follows it REPLACES the new copy of X instead of pushing it up the stack. Lose it and replace the "X<>Y" currently in line 07 with another RCL "X" and you should be OK. Alternatively, replace the ENTER with RCL ST X and leave the X<>Y further ...

Re: Programming a Lookup Table for Inflation Calendar on DM42

Indirect addressing will probably help you quite a bit here. It should make things easier for you than having to access the elements of a matrix, so I'll give you a few pointers here. I would suggest that you store your data in registers numbered 100 and above. Say you're starting with data from 190...

Try it and let us know :)

Re: Issue?: Catalog scrolling speed differences

Scrolling of the menu in run mode is handled by Free42. Because Free42 does not have multiline support in PRGM mode, that particular aspect of the DM42 is handled entirely by DMCP, hence the setting only applying to PRGM mode.

I've raised this with David but I don't know how easily fixable it is.
