Jerome Fine replies:

Something is wrong here. Assuming that the QVT103 is the same as a DEC
VT103, then what you have is a real PDP-11 (limited of course to a VERY
small backplane and power supply) along with the equivalent of a VT100.

And while is really does not make a difference, which PDP-11 OS are you

If you have taken out the PDP-11 boards from the QVT103 backplane - or
just left them there and are using the QVT103 as a terminal running under
E11 on a 486, then you also don't say how the QVT103 is connected to the
PC - via a COM port? These details are important since they clarify the
system you are using.

In lieu of any other information, it sounds like you have a busted keyboard,
but I can't really tell. Try typing "<ESC>OP" in place of PF1 and see if that
works instead. Does everything else work with E11? What OS and what
programs are you running?

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
