The title says it all.. It would be so cool to be able to use classic serial devices on the V4. TVPaint with a tablet, video grabbers, audio samplers...

The V4 dosnt have a USB stack so this would not be possible however it may be possible to use one of the 3 expansion headers on the V4 mainboard to add maybe usb or serial? somebody with more knowledge than me would have to explain that.

Yes I'd imagine it would have to be written into the core. But if the original chipset is faithfully re-created I would imagine it would be doable to get the signals in / out through an expansion header, and then pin converted to an actual serial cable of some kind. Please do this Apollo!

As far as I am aware the core already has access to those ports as it - it just needs a suitable coder to write the required driver for whatever gets attached to the ports.

Iíll bet Itís impossible. Iíll bet no one can get serial devices working on V4...using a hardware adapter and update to the core. Impossible. No one can do it! Dare..dare.. :-D
