DM16 encoder/decoder problem

hi all, I'm trying to use the Nut decoder to convert a memory dump from my DM16 into readable code, to save. The decoder is showing me ??? for the first 7 lines of my program; the rest is fine. Here's what I got from the serial console: DM16 04 f0000000c00000 f0000000c00020 00000000000080 eae0000000...

Re: Stack display behaviour

could it be something simpler, like a sticky Enter key?

Re: Firmware V28 for DM1x/DM41(L) units

try renaming the file to .hex, rather than just deleting the .txt:

Code: Select all

mv DM41_28.txt DM41_28.hex
or simply download the file with:

Code: Select all

wget https://www.swissmicros.com/voyager/firmware/DM41_28.hex
and then, in both cases, check its checksum with:

Code: Select all

shasum DM41_28.hex

RESET is the closest hole to the corner, PGM is the other one.
thanks very much.

I've now printed out (reduced) the back panel pic of the 16L, written the ON codes on the other side, and laminated it to go in the DM16 pouch :)

Re: Firmware V28 for DM1x/DM41(L) units

thanks for the new firmware. I've not done this before, as my DM16 came with V27.

Is the Reset pin the left-hand hole on the back, as on the L models?

The credit-card sized models also have two holes but they're not labelled…

edit: to answer my own question, yes, it seems to be :)

Re: Improved Keyboard????

For the adventurous, is there a guide showing (visually) exactly which bits need cleaning, and how to dismantle far enough to get to them, please?

Is IPA acceptable for cleaning? Any better, e.g. a particular contact cleaner (available in UK)? I have lots of IPA :)

Re: Improved Keyboard????

Are we talking about keys that don't reliably register, or debouncing issues with unwanted repeats? I suffer from the former, but have never seen the latter.

Will someone tell us when the replacement foils are available and how to request one, please? thank you.

N.B. I sometimes get annoyed at the never-ending flood of updates on my smartphones, too, and after receiving complaints about the spate of updates …
complaints? some people are just bloody ungrateful :)

thank you for all your hard work.

Re: Keyboard debouncing

I'm not 100% why folks are advocating these alternates (there seem to be multiple points being made) but the main difference is that [Enter] disables stack-lift, so the next thing entered replaces X without pushing the stack up, while the other methods terminate entry with stack lift enabled. To me...
