Interesting, I didn’t know the situation with the zx-uno was so bad, I was just thinking of buying one.zx81 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:11 amThe problem with the buzzing sound is that I can't reproduce it on my TVs. Could be that some TVs aren't happy with the 32 kHz sampling rate I use.Pegaz wrote: ↑Fri Jul 31, 2020 1:33 pm
I would just like to get rid of this buzzing sound, which we talked about earlier.
I don't know if you had time to investigate it, I just have this problem on each of my 3 pi models (2, 3, 3+) and I haven't been able to eliminate it, except using the old v2.0 version, which doesn't have a GPIO keyboard support.
However, BM has its advantages, such as precise emulation and the ability to easily connect the Spectrum keyboard and its also free.
I don't know which is the next equivalent variant, I guess ZX-Uno with twice the price than Pi, but also with greater potential for sure.
The new Next kickstarter is already around the corner, so everyone has something to choose for themselves...
The ZX-Uno is dead. I own one, sleeping in his box. Nobody develops cores for it. Now, you can choose a MiSTer, Mistica or SiDi. But don't exist a FPGA core that his behaviour will be so precise as many software emulators. And nobody have enough motivation to enhance the cores. The most important core for MiSTer is NeoGeo.
The Next isn't for me, for less money I can have a MisTer with 128MB, I can live without his pretty keyboard.
In terms of emulation accuracy, what are the main differences between BM and ZX-Uno Spectrum core ?
Regarding buzzing sound, that remains as the only logical explanation, because I tried everything else (several Pi's, hdmi cables, power supplies) and it's always the same.
Is the sound part from v2.0 (including the sample rate you mention) the same or was it changed later, because I don't have a sound problem with this version.
I don't know much about that MisTer board, just noticed insane prices, say over $ 300.
Where do you find all that, cheaper than Next?
As for releasing source code, you are absolutely right.
There are too many thieves and dishonest people, who can't wait to take advantage of someone else's work.
For home use BM is quite good, as it is now.
