I was attempting to test my MIO, but unfortunately, the PBI cable on the MIO will not fit the daughter board. I will attempt to post a picture as well as take measurements. The issue is the space between the PBI and joystick ports is too narrow.

RE: Tested PBI devices thread - Added by Stephen over 4 years ago

The connector looks like it requires 4.75mm, and the PCB has about 3.7. I will file this opening larger so that I can test the MIO. If we could have that extra 1 to 1.5mm, everything will be OK.

Confirmed. 4.75mm gap and the MIO plugs in fine. I do not have a drive to test it with, but hitting SELECT+RESET brings up the config menu. I am able to navigate the menu.

Thanks, very helpful. I'm pleased the MIO seems to be working too so far. Adjusting the PCB by a couple of mm seems ok for the next revision. Did you have to file the joystick port too a little?

Nope - literally 1mm of PCB trimmed down, and I recreated the 45 degree angle on that side. Perfect fit with no force required.

I'll need to do more testing with MIO plugged in though, as I seemed to be experiencing some NAKs accessing SIO devices. I doubt I'll have time for more testing this evening though.

External sio or the internal drives?

I'm aware of some internal sio drive issues, seems to get stuck in a bad state.

External drives. My setup is a USB based SIO2PC device from Steve Tucker (AtariMax), running a registered version of APE on the PC. I'm a bit hesitant to trust my testing of the MIO too much, as this is literally the first time I have ever powered on the device. Before I post any bugs with it, I need to test out the device on one of my real machines and see how it behaves.
