    Arduino + Vintage speech chip

    Thanks a lot :-) I'll try it out as quick as possible ..My project is to upgrade my domestic house robot - it runs on a C64 with 8 relays - 2 temperature sensors - 8 digital inputs - old Mobil-phone connected calls last dialed number and gives vocal feedback on problem back home if any -when "Sammy" is all alone ;-).But as the days goes by since the idea came to mind - I see that it is a greater project then I first imagined And as new features pops up in my brain.. the bottom readout tends to be.. " it's going to be expencive.. uh."I'll be back..

    Hi there JfieldcapI've tried to do this to. Heated the chip of a PCB from a "Currah C64 cartridge" . I had to give it some heat to get it of the PCB so I was worried, if I had damaged it. Placed a new 28 pin socket in the old C64 PCB, so I could test the chip on one of my working C64's - and was happy to find it fully functioning. I had no Idea how it worked and how to use it with Arduino. So I started my search on information and found this page: http://nsd.dyndns.org/speech/Are You the Author of this to ? I've followed the instructions and the build on that site. With both success and not really... - My "Arduino speech-box" is somewhat unstable. I've tested all connections again and again - found nothing wrong.. but strangely the unit gets more and more stable t...see more »Hi there JfieldcapI've tried to do this to.

I've followed the instructions and the build on that site. With both success and not really... - My "Arduino speech-box" is somewhat unstable. I've tested all connections again and again - found nothing wrong.. but strangely the unit gets more and more stable the longer its on power - resetting the unit from my Arduino mega an unspecific number of times - and then it will talk for hours - and I suspect days and more if power is stable. It is totally stable on the C64 from being turned on.I suspect My SPO0256A-AL2 is picky about the crystal and dont like the 3.5xxxx Mhz one that I had lying around ;-) On My SP0256 the Label l stats: SP0256A-AL2, GI, General Instruments Co(P) 1981I wanted to try your library - but for my project I will use an Arduino Mega. and wants digital pin 0 and 1 free to use serial interface.So what I actually need is a way to get your library running on the mega ;-)How can I configure the ports to - let's say starting from pin 22 ?Regards !
