Synthetics

Post by Geoff Quickfall »

Not a demand, not a request, just an interesting bug. Wouldn’t even call it a bug really :D

Of course the DM41x has a different display then the original; :!:

Those of you familiar with the DT (display test) program of the PPC module or the self created version using the byte jumper will be familiar with this display:

Invoking the DT program on the DM41X results in this display:

You can see the 14 segment starburst are not all displaying.

All this just for info.

Best wishes all, Geoff

But DTST from OS/X works and displays as intended...

Very interesting. Like Massimo, I use OSX and from the very beginning of the project, have been consistently testing with DTST.

I've no idea why it behaves differently, one would think all these methods are using the same underlying scheme. DTST does it in MCODE, while DT uses FOCAL with synthetics, so it appears there is some kind of access issue.

When in doubt, change diagnostic tools. :ugeek:

But we'll check it out too.

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks for all you are doing Bob, talk to you on the 23rd and I want to see two things:

The Panamatik with the USB port and your Panamatik 34C.

I will be in London that day, confined to my hotel room but will bring some toys with me for show and tell.

Glad to help.

I'll have both machines ready for Show-and-Tell, they both always sit within 4-feet of my desk (actually, 1 is on the desk).

I'll be (STILL) in my home in NY, but I suppose on the call, it won't really matter too much where. ;)
