ok lets start easy. try changing R229 to 2K2 and see how the situation improves. Remember to stick the cart in slot 1

Hi @Daemos,

would it be possible to put another resistor in parallel instead of replacing R229? I did the math and it would be around 4k1 resistor if I'm not mistaken.

@Guillian

Would you mind sharing the analog output schematic of the MFR SCC+ here so we can check if there's any conflict?

Just the analog circuit path, like we published for the PHC-70FD.

@Daemos

Comparing the PHC-70FD with the FS-A1WX schematics, it seems to be missing a pull-down resistor for each slot in the soundin pin. Could that be the cause of the problem?

no problem. Give it a try.

The pull down resistor I believe you speak off are to make a 0 point in the audio signal. This is allready done with R127.

Lets wait out the results for the quick fix.

@sd-snatcher: there is no analog part in the cartridge.The sound output pin from the FPGA is connected to sound pin of the cartridge.

That explains a few problems for some MSXes. I wonder if the FPGA's sound output is open collector as well.

Sorry to disturb You,
in my mind I thought many MSXs have sound problems when mixing sounds because each has different audio mixer circuit,
for instance Philips VG-8020 shunts AUDIO IN from both cartridge slots, so when both AUDIO IN are excited, one drain from the other, and audio mixer OP-AMP received lowered imputs.
It is sound mixing sources balancing, it should be preferred controlled but MSX hardware doesn't do this job.
