***Stupid question warning***
What should I look for when trying to find a ECB rom for this unit? I'll assume for now (until I take it a part and look at a schematic) that the empty socket I can see is where the missing ROM would go. Did R/S use different ECB ROMs in the Coco2's. I've located a couple and would like to be a little more educated on it prior to attempting this...

No, regular BASIC handles that fine.
