      Hi Scott-

      Thanks for the update. I've got the T3-mini working in TTL mode, but it looks like there's a problem with the A-TX pin. Using TTL, I am able to send commands to the T3-mini through the A-RX pin and communication through port B (TTL) seems to work fine (both TX and RX as far as I can tell, I can echo port B text with 'snoop' but I didn't see an obvious command to output text on port B).

      After a little more troubleshooting, it looks like the A-TX pin is still operating in RS-232 mode; it works if I run the A-TX line through a MAX3232 (while the A-RX is still receiving TTL). I verified that 002FFF01 is still 06 using "dump all". Can this be fixed in a firmware update?

      BTW, is there a way to use "dump" to output only the memory at 002FF0? That would make verifying this configuration byte much simpler.

      Thanks! I'm really excited about the options made possible with a T3 on a small PCB like this.
