..to be more precise: The DC-DC converter. If the volume is way too low,
then the 12V for the SID might not be generated properly. I have one other
customer from Denmark who reported the same problem, and I'll investigate
So your problem is currently being investigated, we'll keep you
updated if there is any news.
defo sounds like the cards knackered!!!
