>>Where would you suggest I post to try and find if anyone has a 328 running on a duemilaove?
Its actually standard now.
Thanks for the info. I ordered mine last Dec but things change.
In any case my problem turned out to be a bad 328 chip. I tried a differnt one and all works just fine.
Very strange that I could perform HVparellel programming of all features but it would not operate from the UART. Even when I do a full clone of the working chip, and verify it, the bad chip still fails to operate properly.
