Ok, I finally got around to testing my board. When I plug in a 9V center ground power supply, I simply get a blinking red LED after some seconds. Is that some kind of failure mode? No activity when I move the mouse...

The PSU is a Roland 9V 2A, so plenty of juice available... Or does it actually need the 12V from the ATX power supply? Avrdude said everything flashed just fine...

Got it working thanks to a hint from matze:

avrdude -c usbasp -p t2313 -U lfuse:w:0xfd:m -U hfuse:w:0xdf:m -U efuse:w:0xfe:m
avrdude -c usbasp -p t2313 -U flash:w:ps2adapter-noboot-tiny2313.hex

Probably I flashed the firmware wrongly. Now I will test the adapters on the machine. Will post a video later...
