If it only has 2 terminals, it's gotta be a crystal. The typical metal
can oscillators you're going to see, like this:
1- buy one of these:
2- remove the 1.8432MHz crystal from the RS232 pack
3- Piggyback the oscillator power and ground on top of some other 14 pin
TTL in the pack
4- fly a wire jumper from the oscillator output to TxC,RxC, and XTAL1 on
5- see what happens.
I'm probably going to try this, just because I want to see what happens.
As to why setting the divider to 0000 seems to have the same effect- I
don't know. According to the datasheet it shouldn't.
Also yes, I'm aware that there are a lot of people using terms
interchangeably- much to the confusion of others!
