I dug up my DTV here the other day. I am gonna get it set up one day. I could not find my competition pro joysticks....aarggh......they are in another box....somewhere. Moving is frustrating.... Boxes...little boxes......
I have moved a lot these past years so I have managed to filer out heaps of junk and I have a full index in my brain of all my gear and where it is located. Now I just need a place to set up my DTV and my Replay board so I can really start enjoying it aswell
Hehe....just tie a rope to all your favourite things and arrange them with different colors. That way you can simply sit in your favourite chair and pull the colored rope which corresponds to the gadget you need
The Commodore Flyer by Retroswitch should work with the C64DTV. It would be one of the devices that I'll use with my C64DTV, possibly the C-One and maybe a modded core where I can play with the graphics but still have working serial bus port. It would be interesting though. In the meantime, I'm looking more at my DTV. Of course, I would be able to use this on my Plus/4, C64/128/128DCR, etc.
I want to use the c64dtv primarily (not so much for perfect compatibility) but for use like internet at high speed and have some benefits of uses that it is better equipped than every Commodore 8 bit (with maybe exception to the C65 but we know that is rare.)

So the flyer connects to the IEC port of the DTV/C64 and then you get an ethernet port along with the drive emulator -- it seems. But how do you address that ethernet adapter. I guess the flyer then needs a tcp/ip stack which support this ethernet port and it should (im my opinion) also have support in wings/geos or other OSes for the c64.
Anyone who has any experience and have tested it ? The price of the Flyer is very fair, so it would rule if it worked.
Good news, guys. Brandon Bogle just mailed me this:
"The Flyer should work fine with a modified DTV. I've briefly considered an ethernet-only device. I do have some new hardware designs for future versions of the Flyer. I will definitely give this some more thought." - Brandon
According to what I know, it should have standalone serial port connectivity, making it useful for the DTV. In addition, it has standalone user port connectivity and combo user port-serial port connectivity. See cometplus.net/
