Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.15

Geoff,

It looks like your DM42 has an issue that was fixed in V3.13. Unfortunately you'll have to update to V3.15 the old-fashioned way but future updates using the new method will work.

Re: RTC Calibration program

Real life does sometimes get in the way of things so I've only got round to this now. Sorry about that.

I've corrected the program and updated the first post in this topic with the new version.

Thanks for the confirmation. I'll upload an altered program and edit the first post this weekend.

Re: Problem getting USB disk to access?

*ALL* versions of the DM42 have always had USB disk mode. What changed in V3.5 was the ability to flash firmware from the FAT drive. Until then, the only way to update the DM42 was by throwing the CPU into DFU mode and for that, you did need libusb. Since V3.5, it has been possible to update the DM4...

UPDATE: DMCP-3.15

This is a maintenance update for the DM42 calculator. This update addresses problems with the interpretation of keys pressed quickly in succession such that they "overlap" (i.e. the second key is pressed before the first one is released). There is no update to the Free42 part of the firmware in thi...

Re: ? DM42 as Alarm Clock ?

I'm afraid not.

Many of the functions in the HP-41C Time Module were ported to Free42 but sadly, alarm functions are not among them.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

I'm noticing some issues with two-key rollover responsiveness in 3.14. For example, try typing 150 really fast, and there's a good chance the 0 will be missed. I don't recall having this issue with 3.13. Anybody else seeing this? The reworked keyboard code shouldn't have any effect on that specific...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

The whole point of a small dedicated premium manufacturer like SwissMicros is that they should do a much better job of updating their products than sluggish corporate behemoths like HP, which has only one product (HP Prime) that gets any attention at all, and only because of one dedicated person (T...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Can you please re-issue this update with the newest version 2.4.2 of Free42, or do we have to wait another four months to get the latest version of Free42 ? The long wait was down to a lot of testing put into the LCD refresh by DMA and the reworking of the keyboard code to help address keyboard bou...
