Very nice. Appreciate all the hard work that went into this. I liked the ST demo with the board mounted as a direct replacement for the floppy drive.

Shame that the button could not have taken the form of the disk drive eject key but I realise the mechanical problems such a thing would have created across multiple plaforms with different shaped buttons.

I hope that you will consider my idea of allowing the host computer to control disk image selection in software using combinations of reads / writes or accesses to impossible locations etc. This would facilitate a platform specific "boot disk" which could display a disk selection menu on the TV where you could select what file(s) to queue and insert.

I too had some ideas, what stops the unit from emulating DF0 - DF3 and allowing you to have multiple disks mounted at the same time?
