A new slot expander by Tecnobytes has just come out, this is their latest hardware development still warm from the oven. The Brazilian team, well-known for their excellent products such as MSX-AUDIO AudioWave, V9990 Powergraph Light, or OPL4 Shockwave, decided to make an upgraded version of their previous slot expander. This time the main improvement is the volume control for each slot. The features are as follows:

  • 4 expanded slots that can fit even large cartridges
  • 35 cm buffered flat cable
  • Exclusive plastic cabinet (in development)
  • 5V external power supply (included)
  • You can easily disable a slot (you don't have to remove the cartridge). Each slot has one key and one information LED
  • "DC IN" Status LED: The main board and the cartridges are protected against incorrect voltages (low or high), any problem with the power supply, even if you forgot to connect one. The DC IN Status Led will blink in any of those cases
  • High quality board
  • Control volume individually per slot

The price is USD 128,00 plus USD 38 for shipment worldwide.

Hi

The last email sent from the email you registered here at MSX.org was in 2016 regarding the purchase of a Powergraph, after that nothing else. What you want

Guys, sometimes things go wrong, especially in these pandemic times. I'm not Tecnobytes, but I tried to help my friend Rogério sort out misunderstandings and explain what has been happening. A somewhat frustrating problem is that sometimes someone complains here, but there's no obvious way to connect their MRC username with their real name or whatever they first used when they first ordered their product.

So if you are having trouble with anything Tecnobytes-related, try talking to them. Tell them your real name and your MRC username, if you have multiple e-mail accounts, if you have changed your address, what country you're from. Every bit of info helps them find your case quicklier. Help them help you. And don't ever assume rudeness or bad will, since none of us are native English speakers and tone is easily lost in translation.

I've seen firsthand how much Rogério takes these issues seriously and how much effort he puts into solving them, sometimes even with personal loss.

I don’t know Rogerio personally (I live on the other side of the world Wink) or the team behind Tecnobytes. I have ordered from them during the pandemic and chip shortage time and I am pleased with the products. We ran into issues with new regulations regarding export but everything was handled in the end.

Yeah, I understand about English being not a first language. But when communication just stops, no reply at all, after I have paid $160 some dollars, it's a bit hard to say: let me purchase something else.

That said, I am convinced people here are good folks, not wanting to scam anyone. I will reach out and I'm hopeful we can get this resolved, no hard feelings.
