Sounds good! I'll sent you a PM when I have everything. I can't guarantee it but likely it'll be within the next two weeks.

Since apparently PAL DC modems need 2 9V batteries, I presume that the power through USB solution won't work on a PAL DC, right?

Looks like there's also a 12V step-up USB adaptor, does anyone know if this works or are the 18V really needed?

PCWizrd13 is the best to ask for that one. I would think you need an 18v but im not sure. I do know you could get a USA dialup modem and then you could use 9v usb solution :)

You are correct. PAL modems require a minimum of 18v unfortunately.

I forgot that there's always that option, thanks for reminding me :)

Thanks guys, I already had a LVI built a long time ago (only for a single 9V battery), but never ended up really using it as I couldn't establish a PC-DC server on a Toshiba A300 laptop that I have that has a built in software modem (always became stuck at some Linux instructions that apparently didn't do a thing).

I'm going to buy a Pi 3 so that was really one of my last concerns.

Sorry for the double post, but this way I get the attention of you guys.

Does the Jap counterpart HKT-7100 modem work with 9V?
There's a shortage of NTSC-U modems at the moment on eBay (at least in Europe).

No idea. A lot of people have asked that same question but I guess no one has tried it yet. I have a Japanese Dreamcast but it's the one without the modem (just a filler plastic piece) so I'm unable to test it.

Hey Wiz, I just tried updating Dreampi on my Mac for the first time, here are my findings: you download ApplePi Baker (free) here, put your SD card in your mac, open Pi Baker, browse to the Dreampi image, and click "Restore Backup", the image now gets "baked" to your SD card (takes 2 or 3 minutes)...that's it. Just updated to Dreampi 1.5 & it all works just fine, just been on Vega to test it out.

Piece of cake erm...pi :lol: :lol:
