Re: DM41X

So it is not sure that HP-IL will be supported. HP-IL would be great (as it would facilitate connecting to a world of devices) Nothing has been promised for the HP-IL side, but I also agree that it would be wonderful if is was. The best would be to simulate the HP-IL hardware registers so we could ...

Since the DM41X will be a 41CL, it will handle the HP-IL commands, so...
I am pretty sure that the DM41X will offer a great HP-41 simulation with great extension, but the 41CL is a completely different platform and the above assumption is wrong.

Re: DM41X

To tell you the truth, I was really very very close to hit the "buy button" for a HP41CL + time module + serial cable at 700 Euros... Are you sure ? Add to that import charges due to the full value, insured, declared. Well in my case and I have six 41CL, my normal cost is more around $500 USD inclu...

Re: DM41X

I didn't mean to sound critical on that point; I have never thought that you were complaining either. I love my 41CL (currently inoperative, hopefully fixed soon), What happened to your 41CL ? and Sylvain's improvements for incremental updates make it easy and efficient to do that via serial. I loo...

but the downside of slow, inconvenient PC transfer.
I agree with you for the ROM update which you only do a couple of times per year, otherwise the 41CL is a very hard NUT to crack! :D

Re: DM41X

What's this? A full HP-41 emulation in the body of a DM-42 with a key assignment layout to match as possible the original HP-41. David has written his own NUT CPU emulator and the calculator is running the original HP-41CX ROMs. This is very similar to what Monte has done with his 41CL, although in...

Re: DM41X

I got the chance to play with it at HHC2019. As usual the keys assignment was a subject of discussion between attendees. There are some area that still needs improving but that is completely normal at this early stage. All in all, it is a very nice implementation of an HP-41 and I will buy several u...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

sudo port install lpc21isp (this did not install and gave the same error and log file as before) Hello Bob, Like cdmackay said, it should have worked, anyway I am glad that the Brew version solved your problem. Just be aware that you now have two porting solution installed in your system (Brew and ...
