Screen 9 = Screen 6 (Screen 5 on consoles with width <41)

I remember there were 16 colors in SCREEN9 but I may be wrong.

Only possible when SCREEN 9 uses SCREEN 5. So I need to fix the SCREEN page too.

I discovered Italian VG-8235 user's manual. I am half certain it was bundled with Phonola VG-8235 however the manual doesn't mention Phonola anywhere but cites Philips as its publisher. Should it go to Phonola's or Philips VG-8235's entry?

You can mention it on both entries.

It's similar to the label at back of Phonola machines: it's a Philips label!

Besides, it seems that Philips sold these machines in Italy also under its own brand...

@gdx: I don't understand your modification for Casio PV-7/16.

Without the KB-7, these machines have only 1 cartridge slot, not 2.

With the KB-7, they have 3 cartridge slots, not only the 1st and the third, as your text seems to say.

I did not change the slot number. I only added the -/+12V is not connected.

As for me, since we are talking about Casio PV-7/16, I didn't think there was also no -/+12V on the KB-7 dock.

You have replaced

1 [[MSX_Cartridge_slot|cartridge slot]] (without KB-7) or 3 cartridge slots (with KB-7)

by

1 [[MSX_Cartridge_slot|cartridge slot]] without -/+12V, and a third with KB-7

I meant

1 [[MSX_Cartridge_slot|cartridge slot]] without -/+12V, three with KB-7

It's just a translation mistake

In the ASCII16 section of the wiki, it says:

Page (16kB)                        Switching address             Initial segment
4000h~7FFFh (mirror: C000h~FFFFh)  6000h (mirrors: 6001h~7FFFh)  0 (0Fh for R-Type)
8000h~BFFFh (mirror: 0000h~7FFFh)  7000h (mirrors: 7001h~BFFFh)  0 

But the switching address mirror ranges make no sense to me, the mirrors for 6000H overlap with 7000H, and the mirrors for 7000H are claimed to exceed 7FFFH into page 2, which is unexpected to me. It does not match msxnet’s documentation.

Also, why does it say ASC8 and ASC16, when everybody else calls it ASCII8 and ASCII16?
