In what way? Does it perhaps fail if the Triton has too much RAM mine only has 12K ending at 4000?

I set the Memory to 4000 and the screen just fills up see photo and video Space Invaders MEM 4000H

Set the Memory End to 2000 and works fine.

Hi

Just got back on to my Triton rebuild project , I think a logic analyser might help. I see there are a number of reasonable Price USB logic analyser out there.

I wondered if anyone has any experience or recommendation ?

I bought a generic clone one which I can't find listed now but, they all look much of a muchness and I notice this one specifically says it works with the open source sigrok software under Linuxhttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Logic-Analy.../dp/B08JV4W1CD that is great as the one I had did not and had to use software from another commercial product.

Does the software allow the possibility of paralleling up several of those input devices? For the price, it would be worth buying four to cover all data + all address + a useful number of control / chip select lines, although you'd need a PC with at least 4 spare USB ports.

I noticed there seem to be two types of the cheap logic analyser. One has two ground pins and the other has a CLK pin and a single ground pin. According to one Amazon listing the type with the CLK pin is the old type. Does anyone have the old type with the CLK pin and knows if this is a clock output or input and if it could be used to sync to a scope trigger or a system clock? Unfortunately the one I received today has the two ground pins on the label, so I’m wondering if its worth trying again for the version with CLK.

Mine has the two Ground pins so I can't comment sorry. Of course as I acquired the HP so looking at extending beyond 8 channels fell by the wayside.

This type also looks interesting with 16 channels.
