[Tig] More 888 questions from the museum at Cinelab

Hi Rob

As the author of the firmware 14.1 (and all other versions) I can assure you
that all displays on all panels *should* initialize with an unique
identifier at power-up.  Failure to do so could stem from many causes, but
the most likely would be the dc-dc converters associated with the displays.

By private mail I will send a "Stuck Key Map" to assist you for finding that

For a quick workaround to get other things working, unplug the two softpanel
ribbons, and since they are of opposite gender, just plug them together.
That should let you use the other two panels without the "Key Stuck"

Good luck

Hi TK peeps..

Ok so I have hooked up the 888 and two things,

1. when  turn on the panels should I get some kind of display info on  
the Soft/Trackball panels? I get the following on the Keyboard:

2mhz KBD Prom version 14.1 Checksum=E129

But nothing on the other two panels...

Then I boot the chassis and I get the system will start shortly and  
the monitor says V1.3 and Regulus 4.2E

So I made a user (rob) and it boots and after a bit I get a stuck key  
error on the Soft panel (SOFT: 13) and neither the Soft panel nor the  
Trackball panel have anything in the Fluro displays..
