When I saw this thread I thought 'Oh, I have a 925!' Which was working last time (years ago.)
But wouldn't you know. When I checked, it's a Televideo 924. Off by one.
But perhaps the character ROM content is the same?
Anyway I will see if it still works, and secure all the ROM images. Today.
I have the user manuals, but does anyone have schematics for the 925 & 924?
