Well I have the setup and it works great, other that a few small issues locally. I can say to date I have not had any luck with PCI-e LPT ports. While they are ports that are not remappable the issue seems to lie in the pci-e bus. Unlike ISA, the original bus for LPT ports or even PCI bus, there is no real power. This unconventionally then disallows seeing the ground of the sensor ports so the system does not see a real LPT port there.

There is hope though. Most refurbished older machines have LPT ports. The one I selected, a Dell OptiPlex 380, has a LPT port that is fully legacy compliant with the resources. Whatever computer you select be sure is has a standard PCI bus slot free. In a worse case you could then get one of a few true PCI cards for LPT that allow remapping that should work.

Be it known though that with most Windows 7 machine you most likely will not be able to use LT2K. I will try and get it working later but have come across a lot of issues with it so far.
