What is this cable ?
« on: 17:56, 26 January 18 »
I recently came across a strange cable in a CPC lot :


On one side it has female DB9 :





and on the other side a DIN "180 degrees 5 pin" like :



Anyone has an idea of what it could be ?


I read serial/Midi things but the db9 looks really like a standard amstrad joystick plug, not a serial one. It is possible to send midi through joystick port ?


Perhaps it's unrelated with CPCs ?

So how does this work exactly? Does it do torrents as well?
