Hello guys,
you know that there're many models with external keyboard, with different connectors and pinouts.

I would like to ask you to put here in the thread pinout of your MSX keyboard.

You can research it yourself, copy info from the manual, or just put a permalink to the manual here.

You can use the following template
Machine name:
Manufacturer:
Keyboard connector type:
Number of pins:
Pinout
...

Pictures are welcome!

Thanks!

Machine name: Captain Multistation
Manufacturer: NTT
Conector Type: DB25
Number of pins: 25

I carry two years looking for information about this computer and it comes down to the page Takamichi. I was told that it has also MSXholder but did not respond to my email. I have no keyboard, so I can only use cartridges. I hope someday to find a tailor or gifts to any PC keyboard or MSX.
