I think that the PT was a version which included a 386SX processor and the
AE is a pure terminal.
My guess is that the firmware is the difference between the one I have and
the the VT100 version. Possibly the modem board as well.

It is not possible to configure it to do anything like bi-sync. There is a
setting to configure NRZI or NRZ line coding, nothing else.

Let's hope there is someone out there that could dump the EPROMs. I hope to
get a response from the guy which shows a VT100 Informer 213 on Youtube. It
would be nice to actually use it. Attaching it to something IBMish using
VTAM seems unlikely.
