I just wanted to thank you for your continued enthusiasm and reporting. It is very helpful for me.
I never quit... I just ping out.

No need at all to thank me, I am just a grateful user.  I have been using LMCE in some form or another for 3 years now and I enjoy doing my part to make it even better.  With enough effort I will eventually help write code but until that time I do what I know, which is piecing things together until they POST, then dumping the results on your lap.  :o

Imagine if 18,821 people gave hardware and setup feedback from their unique systems!  For me to find unsupported junk I would have to dig out a IIgs or C128 cassette drive.

Disappointing test tonight.  I had pretty high hopes for this card and wanted to test multiple output modes.  Supported yes but not good in any way.  I will keep it up for a few days and perhaps see if I can't adjust it and edit this post if I get better results.  Here you go L3mce:
