RE: JamMan memory problems, Part 2

Hi Dave,

Yes, you get a + in the display when the test passes.

Dear Kim,

You are welcome to place this diagnostic anywhere you'd like.

Best regards,

Greg, this is exactly the information I need, profound thanks for the   
Perhaps this should go onto the JamMan page at Kim's site?

So, I ran the above diagnostic, and I get a "+" in the lower left corner   
the display. I presume this means that the DRAM checks out, right?

Still mystified and running on 15 bits...
