My Teletype has just shipped today so I’m still a short time away from placing my order for a Grid.
If someone could help me understand; it is clear that the TT cannot provide power to the Grid so another solution is required. I get that the Switch is gone for good but that Offworld will fill its place.
In @tehn’s image above it suggests that I could power the Arc and Grid simultaneously, I’m guessing that the main USB connection (not the ones going to Arc and Grid) is going to some kind of USB hub or a port on a computer that can supply enough current. Correct?
If the Arc and Grid are plugged into the Offworld how do they simultaneously plug into Teletype and Ansible, are they using a Y splitting cable somewhere in the path?
It seems that Offworld might be a source of noise with some people’s setup, did the Switch suffer from the same problem?
I’m thinking about ordering an assembled Offworld when they become available as they appear to be a rarity but an essential item if one wants to explore the Teletype talking with the Grid. Is there a mailing list or will the availability of Offworld be announced here on Lines?
