You can use the PC as a keyboard and display for the 71. Enter
KEYBOARD IS :PC @ DISPLAY IS :PC
You need a LEX file for the KEYBOARD IS command This LEX file is included in the FORTH/ASSEMBLER ROM and possibly in the TRANSLATOR PACK and also available seperately.
You also need the Software I point to in another branch of this thread. Manual for the card and Software is included as a text-file. This was the original distribution of the manual.
The PC can be used for file storage (I think somehow like the disk station). The card came out abt. 1984, so sorry, no Windows NT drivers. DOS 7 (included in WIN95,98) should work if the machine isn't too fast. It's long ago, I used the card, so I have to check this on a newer machine.
The card is also useful, if you have a HP110 (Portable) or a Portable plus.
I think it's some kind of useful for the 75 and 41 too, but don't know to what extent.
