There's an interesting jukebox with Sony CD changer controlled by two BBC Master's over at http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11193

Assuming I eventually manage to get the ROMs for it, what would it take to create a machine that incorporates two instances of bbcm?

If the bbcm is fully devicified and doesn't depend on statics/globals it should be easy enough to instantiate more than one of them. Otherwise it needs to be devicified properly.

There's two parts to this jukebox and now have a partial dump from the Discmate part. The other part not yet dumped is the Discmonitor.

More to follow when I have the data cartridge.

nice, obscure stuff like this is always good to see.

Finally got a dump from the Discmonitor (wallbox):

... and found a service mode in Discmate (hidden CD changer):

Also got a dump of a cartridge from a later Fender jukebox, which the service mode recognised but not yet sure if 100% compatible with the Discmaster series.
