Hi,

Just wanted to share my recent experience with Dexter and the Dexter software manager. Long story short I moved recently and once in the new house did a mad rush to plug everything back together. My dragons lair wouldn't start, sure it did the three beeps and then would just stop. So I downloaded the Dexter manager and ran it on a computer plugged into my home network and also plugged Dexter into the home network.

On the Dexter manager screen you'll be able to see what Dexter is doing during boot-up and what data is being sent to/from the main board. I attached a screen shot of what was happening on my machine. It was showing that Dexter was receiving invalid commands from the dragons lair board. Looked in the PR7820 manual and no commands 0E or 2E. Anyway poking around a little more I realized that I had plugged the laser disc cable backwards. Oops. Flipped it around and success a working dragons lair again.

Thanks to Matt for the Dexter manager to give us insight into what the system is doing.

Julio
