TC-PC, TX-8, and TC-I.  The latter is a PCI board.  This is probably a TX-8.

I have controller and cable sets available for all of them.  There are 
linux drivers for some version of the kernel for the TX-I  The rest of 
the software runs on windows, and is good to copy and image tapes.

Anyone who would like a loan or can use any of mine, speak up, and I'll 
let you borrow or acquire them.

I've also got a stack of F-880's and an F-990 if any of that helps anyone.

I did at one time have a Pertec NRZI and a PE formatter which would run 
the Pertec 37.5ips tapes, but I am not sure where they went. The former 
would run 556 and 800bpi the latter 1600.  I will have to see if they 
survived and share them if I find them.\

The ODI controllers can run off the P1-P2 formatted Pertec interface off 
of them quite nicely.
