Worked out of the box rubber_jonnie, tried eprom first then the eprom emulator. Especially sweet since the eprom emulator sits in what should have been the CPU socket. :)

@PaulJ I remember now, there's been so much stuff lately, I've been losing track, especially with not sleeping well. Think I will definitely have to get me one of those eprom emulators.

@rubber_jonnie , you will have to build an adaptor for either the mega or H4. Also I'll give you the set up. Its not hard just very little documentation.

Hey @PaulJ I'd be grateful if you could share the details of the eprom emulator adaptor build please :)

FYI my 2nd V1.1C IDE adaptor is now up and running :) Also, so is my 2nd Megabus IDE Adapter with the addition of the missing GAL.

Which one do you want first Jon, I'll do a schematic with eagle but I have to make 27c400 layout since I can't find one. Would you prefer the H4 or mega first. Once I get one the other will be easy. The reason I say eagle schematic is I want to do adapters and this way doing a schematic in eagle will work toward that end.

@PaulJ Hmm, you've put me on the spot there! Since I have TOS 2.06 via the IDE interface for the H4, let's go for the Mega first please. I'd like to get my Mega 1 going with TOS 2.06 and see how the Megabus IDE interface gets on with it.

Ok Jon, I'll do the mega first and then the H4. I'll see if I can get the eagle 27c400 package from @cmorley. I know he's got one because he gave me a eagle schematic to use the emulator on an eight bit machine. So cmorley is there any chance I could get the eagle 27c400 package or a place I can find it? Thanks..
