Hi all,

Can someone tell me how the Sony HB-F1XDJ internal software is supposed to behave?

How to start it? Is there a switch to enable/disable it? Is there a CALL command to start it?

I'm trying to emulate the machine, but it just boots to basic... No idea what is going on, as I don't have such a machine myself...

Any ideas?

No one here has a real Sony HB-F1XDJ? It's a really cool MSX2+...

You can help by saying if it boots to basic or to internal software. And if it doesn't boot to internal software, see if there's some switch on it, which makes it boot to internal software. And if you have manuals, look at CALL commands, they're in English...

Thanks!

Interesting, msxrestarter couldn't find any kind of switch or CALL statement to activate internal software. So, the machine has a 1MB ROM and we have no idea what it does! Does someone have any idea?

Yes, it has. It is even emulated, but I can't verify if it really works, because I have no idea how to test that...
