USB Direct Cables Supported in TiLP
Posted by Michael on 29 May 2006, 14:18 GMT

The TiLP-II v0.13 beta version has been released for UNIX and Windows, and I am happy to report that it now supports the direct USB cables used by the TI-84 Plus and TI-89 Titanium. Romain LiƩvin has made TiLP the first and only linking program besides TI Connect to support the direct USB functionality in those newer calculators. As it is a beta version, I'm sure feedback and bug reports involving USB communication would be helpful.

I'm glad to see a good Linux linking program making some ground with link cables. It seems as though Tilp is approaching TI-Connect in terms of functionality, and ease of use. I think it will be a good rival for the first-party software with more stable releases.

RadioShack has "universal" USB cables -- for direct connection it doesn't have to be a TI cable.

Anywhere that sells TI graphing calcs should have silverlinks for sale too. Wal-Mart is cheap...

TICalc.org has plans to build (like I did) a serial link and RadioShack has the parts...

yes -- a universal universal serial bus

USB is not universal -- there are many many shapes and sizes of connectors, of which the most common 5 or so are in the Universal USB kit...

go figure...

I think that the direct USB cables are faster plus they don't have a big uguly wart in them like the silverlink not like it matters though

See the URL link above because it doesn't like words ofer 40 letters.

Unfortunately shipping is $4.99.

I seriously doubt that it could work that way...

$59 4.1MP camera + $39 512MB w/ card reader = cheap at WalMart

I had the idea once, but it never got much farther than that. It would be a pain to show the image on the calcs screen, and without that, the camera would be pretty much useless.

I had that idea too, I thiught about somehow linking my TI-84+SE so my nice 5 MP Canon Powershot A95 and transfering the pics to my calc and vis-versa, but didn't ger any farther than that.
(I like bragging about my $330 camera I bought with my 8th grade graduation money!)

8th grade graduation? Wow. I had a kindergarten graduation and a high school graduation and will have my college graduation in May.

I suppose in the future people will just have a graduation at the conclusion of every grade...

I have a MP3 player usb cable downstairs, USB hard drive cable in my bedroom, TI cable somewhere..., and a camera cable in our home-office room

I can use my stuff anywhere...I usually use a silverlink though -- it's more reliable

All TI calculators that support the DirectLink USB cable come with one. So, this only concerns people with a calculator that only came with the DirectLink cable, and they don't have one from another calculator.

It's just good to see some support for the Linux OS. Even though Linux has at least the *desktop* market share that Apple does, it has <1% of the 3rd-party support. I sent TI an e-mail a while ago asking about TI Connect and Linux and they just said that they don't and have no plans to support the OS in the future.

We couldn't care less about TI-Connect anyway, TiLP II works fine and it's Free Software.
