Does MIOS/MIDIBox64 Require Bankstick?

3 posts in this topic

I'm at the point where I'm testing my MB64 and I have a few questions, including the main one in the title:

1) I bought my PIC from SmashTV. I believe it has the bootstrap loader burned into it already. There's a sticker on it stating it

s bootstrap loader v1.1b and has ID 0 etc... from my understand I believe this means I just need to load the MIOS operating system and then load the MB64 program.

2) A followup to the question above. Do I need to load MIOS v1.8 before loading the MB64 v2.4 application or does the MB64 v2.4 application include everything already?

3 I can't figure out  if MIOS requires a Bankstick. The whole time I was building my MB64 I was thinking the PIC had all the required memory on board for one program. Can someone please explain or let me know if MIOS/MB64 requires a banksitck?

Thanks in advance.

Brian.

Hey Brian

1) I bought my PIC from SmashTV. I believe it has the bootstrap loader burned into it already. There's a sticker on it stating it

s bootstrap loader v1.1b and has ID 0 etc... from my understand I believe this means I just need to load the MIOS operating system and then load the MB64 program.

... this is correct

2) A followup to the question above. Do I need to load MIOS v1.8 before loading the MB64 v2.4 application or does the MB64 v2.4 application include everything already?

... yes, you need to load MIOS first

3 I can't figure out  if MIOS requires a Bankstick. The whole time I was building my MB64 I was thinking the PIC had all the required memory on board for one program. Can someone please explain or let me know if MIOS/MB64 requires a banksitck?

... the PIC has the required memory available. A Bankstick you needonly, if you'd like to switch between different configuration setups (banks)
