Re: New DM42S hardware

SM sent new faceplates. Labels are centered and printed properly. The only nitpick is that on the replacements "S", "W", "-" and " " along the right edge have a smaller font size than "F" and "L" further above. But I can live with that. The...

Re: Program works in free42 (mostly) but not on DM42

Thanks Peter for sharing this information! I can reproduce the behavior and am glad that now I know how to fix things if I run into this trouble again.

Re: Fancy Leather Cases

FYI - I asked Valenta if the Durban could be made w/o the loop. They confirmed and pointed out that it would take about 4 weeks to make it.

Re: New DM42S hardware

Thanks to SM's excellent support the cosmetic issues are history now. Looking forward to the WP43S, which will be my next purchase.

Re: New DM42S hardware

Many thanks for sharing this comparison! On the old version the labels are centered above the keys. On the new version "Alpha" has moved to the left, "ASIN", "ACOS", "BST" and "SST" have moved to the right. It's difficult to judge but on my two sampl...

Re: Can't get USB to work correctly

I am not sure anymore it's the cable. I got a cable with longer connector which yields a very secure fit. A minute ago I connected the DM42, tidied up the offimg folder, ejected, saved a state file and then decided to do a full backup. So I connected again and started to copy files. The DM42 disconn...

Re: New DM42S hardware

Although, if you can feel both buttons beneath the ENTER key, that means it has the improved keyboard. Because the description of the keyboard made by nephilim is just like my old dm42. Both of my DM42 here have the two-click Enter-key. But I can do the trick in https://youtu.be/OaKvP8-2iB0 only if...

Re: New DM42S hardware

I would like to clarify that I do not have an old DM42 and I also do not have a DM41X, so I cannot compare the current keyboard against the other model/older version.

Re: New DM42S hardware

I just received my second DM42... and feel disappointed. I got the first one about a month ago. A few weeks later the new version with upgraded hardware was announced here. I asked in this forum if the serial number indicates that my sample was already from the upgraded batch but did not get a respo...

Re: USB connectors

I can confirm that the USB connector of the following cable can be fully inserted w/o touching the DM42's case. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07JB6V66H . I had to wait a few weeks but the wait was worth it. Borrowed from amazon... https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71KJ1yRozVL._AC_...
