I have an additional two reports of a RPi3 failing USB transfers to a D80 when there is no ethernet cable plugged into the interface!


The K60/EK305 appears to work okay.

FS#614: Validate new size support and other feature additions on the EK605 Solomon Peachy Mon, 13 May 2019 01:31:01 +0000 Additional print sizes in latest firmware, plus all of the extra features pulled in via the Sinfonia framework (eg firmware version detection, LED blinking, status and error reporting, and so forth..)

FS#558: Support Sinfonia S3 (CHC-S2245), Kodak 6900, and HiTi M610 Solomon Peachy Thu, 22 Dec 2016 03:38:31 +0000 The S2245 is the replacement for the S2145. it's main feature is high capacity (900 print) media.

The Kodak 6900 is actually the CHC-S2245-6A

HiTi M610 is also a rebadged S2245

The S2245 (and its siblings) use the identical S6145ImageProcess library first seen on the S6145

FS#612: Unify the various Shinko/Sinfonia backends Solomon Peachy Sun, 28 Apr 2019 13:20:32 +0000 For the most part, the shinko/sinfonia printers are quite similar in how they operate. There are unfortunately differences in specific commands and how some of the fields in the headers are parsed.

So, now that the backend infrastructure is decoupled from the "model name", look into unifying:

  • Sinfonia S2145
  • Sinfonia S6145
  • Sinfonia S6245
  • Kodak 605

These two are different than the others, but close to each other:

  • Sinfonia S1245
  • Kodak 6800/6850

Meanwhile, these new models are likely similar to models in the first set:

  • Sinfonia 2245
  • Kodak 7000/7010/7015
  • Sinfonia 8145
  • Kodak 8810
  • Sinfonia DP-1045
  • Kodak D4000

What I expect to do is that when/if support for one or more of these new models is implemented, it will be bolted onto an existing backend, and that will be the basis for merging in the others.

FS#585: Add support for Zebra ID card printers. Solomon Peachy Sun, 12 Nov 2017 01:21:01 +0000 I have a P120i that is in perfect working order.

FS#500: Investigate Shinko S8145 Solomon Peachy Thu, 08 Aug 2013 13:04:57 +0000 The T1/S8145 is a fancy "silver foil" thingey with two print heads.

FS#535: Write backend for Kodak 8810 and 7000/7010/7015 Solomon Peachy Wed, 26 Aug 2015 01:04:14 +0000 The 8810 is also known as a Shinko CHC-S1845-5A.

It appears closer to the S1245 mechanically, but S6245 programically.

The 7000/7010/7015 models are Shinko CHC-S1645-5A/5B/5C, respectively.

Probably not worth wasting any time on unless someone steps up with docs and hardware.

FS#538: Add support for DS80DX Solomon Peachy Wed, 26 Aug 2015 04:11:30 +0000 It has all the joy of the DS80, but also supports sheet-fed simplex and duplex operation. It's a veritable mess to support cleanly.

FS#537: Write backend for Shinko DP-1045 and Kodak D4000 Solomon Peachy Wed, 26 Aug 2015 01:47:15 +0000 Aka ColorStream D3

They're the same thing, an 8" wide duplex printer. No support in Gutenprint yet.

FS#521: Investigate HiTi 720L/750L and 510L/520L/525L/P530D, P310W, X610, M610, and others? Solomon Peachy Thu, 27 Feb 2014 15:47:46 +0000 P310W is consumer model.

Rest are workhorse kiosk printers, it's currently the cheapest per-print, 300dpi.

Gutenprint seems to support no HiTi models at all.

Early investigation into these models shows that the spooler format is some sort of funky compressed format -- and the data actually sent to the printer is ratehr different.

So no progress will be made without direct access to one or more HiTi printers.
