Hi all,

First time poster, long time reader.

I recently came into possession of some PP&S DoubleTalk cards, but there is scant information about them available on the internet. No driver disks, no manuals, just a few adverts and board scans, plus some entries on Amiga Hardware Database/Big Book of Amiga Hardware.

If anyone has or knows where I can find driver disks, manuals, et cetera...I'd really appreciate it.

I created a short YouTube video about these.

Thanks,

-xlark

Clark! Super cool to see you here. And what a fascinating piece of hardware you have there! I've never seen (or heard) of one of those Localtalk cards. I'll definitely keep an eye out.

So far no luck on DoubleTalk.....but my Reddit post on this did turn up ANOTHER LocalTalk adapter that I didn't even know existed: Interact by DigifleX

A kind soul on Reddit took the time to archive the manual, driver disk, and some pictures of the one they own:

Aw man....I totally missed these notifications...been having to focus on real life/work for a bit.

I wonder who bought it....

In the mean time, I got some files from Matt_H over at English Amiga Board/Amiga.org (he might be legendary, idk, I remember seeing him posting a lot in the early 2000's). Not a driver disk, but an archive from an install.

I don't think it's complete, but it's got enough stuff on there such that I can share volumes from Mac->Amiga and Amiga->Mac.

Also, I think the guy selling on eBay is the same one that uploaded stuff to archive.org: https://archive.org/details/double-talk-install

I think he just took Matt_H's archive, wrote a small script, and put that in an ADF. I was talking to him on EAB, so I'll confirm.
