    I haven't tried my HxC Rev F with a Model 4 but I do love the device. The only downside to it is that the screen has a very slow refresh rate and is difficult to read when the disk name scrolls across the screen. It gets blurry due to the slow refresh.

    @Heather.

    This is not normal behavior. I think you are missing some firmware updates.
    Go to the HxC site and check for updates.

    My understanding is that it uses the same pin on the ST32 for these functions so you
    don't get but one at a time.

    From what I heard, the HxC firmware for Gotek now got some extra capabilities that's not supported by the current Lotharek SD-card models, in particular variable datarate. The Lotharek model C and F uses a controller that isn't fast enough to reliable emulate that.

    I received my Rev F today. It works. I may order another one later or maybe a Gotek to compare.

    The only issue I have is I don't have any option to select the image for the second drive from the front panel. It has the latest firmware so I've sent a support request to see if they have any ideas.

    Got mine in a 4P and it works great (pic enclosed)... http://www.cpucentral.co.uk/retro-computing/
