Hi Jeroen,

Could you please post some pictures from the Sony version and what exactly models you have tested?

I have added a photo here: https://github.com/jeroentaverne/msx_keyboard_interface
The Philips and Sony interfaces are functional (but not completely technical) identical.

I currently tested with a F700. The F500 and F900 are very similar inside, so I don't expect problems. Markus is about to test it on the 500 and 900 machines.
