Astron Belt (VIP9500SG mode) confirmed working in Dexter!

I just finished up experimental support for the Hitachi VIP9500SG laserdisc player for Dexter.  (BTW, I learned that the 'SG' apparently stands for SEGA hehe).  Warren tested it out yesterday and it seems to mostly work.  There may be a few defects but frankly it's hard to tell what "working correctly" looks like on this game since it's so poorly designed :)

I'll be adding this new firmware update to Dexter Manager soon (it's not quite available).

Dexter Dragon's Lair 2 bug fixed

Attention Dexter users,

I've fixed a long-standing bug with Dragon's Lair 2 and Dexter where every seek would return with an error.  The game can now be played with Dexter (again) although I still have not implemented stop code support, so all scenes will overrun slightly.  It's progress!  You can update your Dexter devices using Dexter Manager (link on the front of the Dexter home page).

Dexter HOWTO (updated as of 8 Aug 2015)

New Dexter HOWTO videos

I've been threatening to do these for what, 3 weeks?  I finally got them filmed.

Sorry that I speak quietly in some parts.  Hopefully I covered everything most people will need to get the most out of their Dexter boards.
