GRASS and 300XL

Has anyone any experience of using the HP 300XL with Postscript option in 
conjunction with the output from '' ?

Ours has just arrived and I've tried a few test plots. They generally 
work and look fine (if taking a long time to come out) but afterwards a 
page is printed with a warning message 'Timeout' ?? - any idea what is 
causing this ?

Related problem is trying to plot a raster map - the Postscript file was 
about 1.2Mb - I copy the file using the DOS 
'copy /b filename lpt1:' command (as with the other test files) and the 
300XL starts to flash its busy light (as with the others). Then after a 
while the PC reports a failure with the LPT port and a 'Fail, Abort, 
Retry' message. Again any idea what is causing this ?

Thanks for any help,
