Subject: AW: LCD scroll
From: edx (Felix.Arends_at_gmx.de)
Date: 2002-01-06


Great! Too sad I can't try it myself :( (HD damaged)

I have an idea what the two translation tables could be for: I have a
JBS20 and I downloaded a firmware version for the JB6K. The file worked
ok (though as far as I know the LCD displays are different, aren’t
they?). So maybe they use one translation table for the JB6K and one for
the JBS20?

I guess Björn tested it with JB6K, so maybe someone could test it with a
JBS20...?
