Wish List...

The Beta programme is where a device becomes fully formed. If you have any suggestions for features to integrate into the DM41X then feel free to make them here. We can't guarantee that they'll all end up in the final product but we'll certainly consider all sensible proposals.

Wish List...

Post by Ignatz »

1. The option for a DM42 display mode. Seems a waste to not take advantages of that hi-res display.

2. Scroll through OFF IMGs using 'up arrow' and 'down arrow' keys.

3. Ability to set a default OFF IMG (i.e. blank).

4. A rechargeable battery.

5. Ability to choose the date format that almost the entire world uses.

TIA,

Tim

Items 1, 2 and 4 are extremely unlikely to ever happen. Nothing is impossible, but some things are close.

Item 3 can be done by loading only the blank OFFIMG into the \OFFIMG folder. If only 1 file is there, it will be used every time the unit is turned-off.

Which date format are you seeking? I think all common formats are available.

MMDDYYYY, DDMMYYYY, and YYYYMMDD are all available.

You can toggle among the options using the [Σ+] key, as described here:

Thanks, Bob... I've now edited my OFF IMGs and set the date format.

Could option 1 be possible through a ROM rather than modifying the 41X OS? Sort of like a combination of the Plotter ROM and the HPIL video interface?
