Bits 1 through 7 do not matter, so even though not equal they are (or
should be) equivalent. But I did use 0x4d415400. I simply used the
shorter syntax since that was easier to type and conveyed the relevant
info.

No, but did it again and checked, see transcript below. BTW, how do I
know which master is in use for the LCD controller? 8 or 9? Both? And
which DDR slave is the target? 7, 8, 9 or 10? More than one?

Cheers,
Peter
