    Since my module made it overseas (I'm not located in the UK) ATC certainly sounds like an reasonable explanation. No CEGB 'round here!
    Looking at the product sheet that TasKiNG posted yesterday I see that it's for 50 Hz operation and therefore I assume PAL, although there is fine print stating "US. venison with 60Hz display refresh are also available." -- presumably NTSC then. Although my board is identified as the more flexible SBD-B I don't see any indication as to whether it might be NTSC vs. "standard" PAL. The SUPERVISOR 214 documentation from Dave does reference NTSC once regarding the reduced resolution under that standard but otherwise seems to presume PAL.

    It would be awful nice if "A module of subroutines (HLIB) is available for PDP11 and LSi11 hosts which is coded in Macro 11" would turn up ...

    I haven't found the SBD-B manual yet, but I have located an SBD manual for QBUS. This is not 100% the same, but the -B is a compatible upgrade.

    I am currently 'negoatiating' to either get hold of the manual to scan myself or get hold of a scan copy. There are two manuals - one for the hardware and one for the programming commands. I know for a fact that the command set is the same between the two cards.

    As an aside, another contact sent me the manuals for the SBD+ but this was interesting to me as it was a later VME card. I remember these being QBUS; so they must have produced a later card with a VME interface. These scans are rather large, so I will need to think how I am going to get them from work to home...

    Bit more time yet...

    Maybe a Christmas present?!

    A bit later than the promised Christmas - but my work colleague has just dropped the Dowty manuals off on my desk!

    I will be out of the office next week on business - but I will see of one of the office PAs can organise getting them scanned for me.

    Failing that, I will scan them myself when I get back.

    The job is in hand ...

    Right,

    The SBD manuals are up on my google drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...TZNMGRIQUl1OFk.

    There should be two PDF files in the SBD folder.

    Our document centre at work did an excellent job of scanning them. Unfortunately, they didn't put the scanned files where we asked them to do. Instead, they tucked a little USB drive into one of the folders of documentation - but neglected to mention it to me! Resolved now...

    These manuals should give you a very good introduction to the commands you have available on the SBD-B.

    Let me know if you get them OK.

    Enjoy,

    Dave

    Thanks Dave, You're a star.
    Link does not work but I used the previous link from page 2 and they downloaded fine.
    Plenty of reading/info for me to get my teeth stuck into.

    Thanks again for doing this

    Cheers

    Dave

    No problem. Glad to be of help!

    I've fixed the link (I hope).

    If you need any help with understanding any of the manual - just ask...
