Plipbox and power cycle
« on: January 23, 2018, 02:23:43 AM »
Everytime I power cycle my amiga, I have to power cycle the plipbox first or I can't communicate with it.  Is this normal?  It won't work ever if I do a soft reset.  I have to physically power off the amiga, power cycle the plipbox, and then turn on the amiga.

yep its normal.

I power my amiga and plipbox off the same psu,so switch on/off takes care of it. u could prob. add a momentary power switch to the plip if thats not a option.

Thanks!  Just wanted to make sure it wasn't just mine doing it.

There are also variants of Plipbox that detect that Amiga is powered on or off, and shut themselves on and off accordingly.
