        There are electronics in a PC to TPDD cable to do level shifting using power from the flow control lines.

        If you can get hold of TRS-80 TPDD cable (either for the TPDD-1 or TPDD-2 drive) they work fine connected to a 930.

        Marty Goodman designed a cable he believed to work, I have never tested it though.
