I can format and I can do MFM reads but I am currently having an issue with CRC checks during writes which are failing for the Tandy's WD1010 controller.  I think it's an easy fix so I'm in contact with the DREM team and hopefully it will be going well soon.  I'll keep you updated.  Overall, I think it's a pretty solid product and a great solution to the dwindling supply of working MFM drives.  Plus, backups are super easy with the SD card  support.  And the detailed logging allowed me to easily pinpoint the issue with the CRC checks.

After receiving an update to the firmware from the incredibly helpful DREM team I’ve been able to install XENIX on my Tandy 6000 with the DREM HD emulator!
