I'm stuffing an A500 rev 5 with ACE2b, Indivision ECS, ACA500plus, ACA1221lc, Checkmate A1500 ATX & Zorro 2 slot adapter and rear plate into a generic ATX tower case.
Will likely add ZZ9000 and faster accelerator card ... down the road.
The piece I'm missing is a quality adapter for a USB or PS\2 keyboard.
I know about a cheap one on eBay, but I've bought from that vendor once before.
I bought their USB adapter for a C64 mouse.
Not only did the product fail to work correctly, I sent a video showing the issues (jumping in one axis), but the vendor choose not to respond at all.
eBay refunded, and I wasn't out any money, but what a tremendous waste of time.
Which is why I'm skipping an otherwise 'perfect' sounding product and continuing to search.
Looks like another option for me might be a Lyra 3
When I examine the big box Amiga keyboard connectors, I don't see a reset signal pin defined on the connector.
I'd like to know if the Lyra 3 generates a physical reset signal on CTRL-Amiga-Amiga that I can route to the A500 keyboard connector ?
When I look at the online documentation...it's honestly 'ambiguous' as to how it's going to perform a physical reset.
I can re-direct the A500's keyboard connector to a DIN connector on the rear of the case and re-pin the signals as required,
I just don't know what that pinout should be to make the Lyra 3 happy, and if it will supply the physical reset signal ?
