Hello!
Actually yours. From your Github storage location as described on the Sparkfun pages for the LCD screen:
 http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=569 And the break-out-board is this one:
http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8600

Your description comes up on the 27th entry of the 28 there.

Hello!
I have found your excellent description at:
http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/LCDPCF8833 The device described there looks rather close to the one I bought from Sparkfun. Please note that I am describing both the display and the break-out-board.

Your instructions are excellent, except for one problem. The IDE can't find the header file despite being placed exactly where your code page wants them placed. This is being tested under Version 18, which was obtained from the Google Code place, and under Cygwin. Do you have any suggestions for fixing the obvious error messages that surface upon clicking the verify button.

Hello!
In this location on the forum :http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1266105254 it describes one intrepid worker's efforts to make sure the device is working properly. This was done using the Sparkfun device.

However http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ADXL3xx confirms that the Sparkfun family will work properly.

But it also states that the ones from AdaFruit will also work, but the pinouts are different.
It states, and I quote here "though the order of the pins is slightly different.".

Also the store in NYC at the NYU ITP facility sells the ones from AdaFruit. Advice and suggestions please.

Hello!
About that code from the blog. It seems to be incomplete in places. Which code blob should I be using? Do you have a pastie for it someplace?

And for the code that I know works, I am getting either a squashed spiral of lines at first, or a big spiral of lines, instead of the pattern that you're displaying on your demonstration screens.

Hello!
One of the things I forgot to mention below is that I am running on a
 Arduino Duemilanove http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardDuemilanove

So I suspect that something will need to be changed to accomodate this board as opposed to the ones you are using for this great idea. As for what that is, I am not sure. I am getting great smears of black and white color patterns on this set.

Hello!
I am impressed. So what about having the Arduino take input from external hardware, such as digital logic, and then translate that input to the TV screen?

Time moves in spirals because it can't move straight across.

52  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / Has anyone used the Sparkfun serial LCD at all? on: June 07, 2009, 10:14:48 pm
[size=12]
Hello!
I have here both the Sparkfun http://www.sparkfun.com Serial backpack for LCD displays, and an assortment of 74151 parts.

I've tracked down on the main website the library for the displays, and studied the MUX151 code. And I've decided to stick my feet into the water with an edit to the Wiki.

Nothing major. everyone's spelling is good. However the belief that the 74HC151 is only one around is a misnomer, the original device is still available, currently it's made by as many companies as still exist in original TTL as well has the HCMOS style.

However I would like to have my display recieve input from this mux. Suggestions please people.

Hello!
I am still investigating the issues regarding the regular Interface, see:
http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1188261175
And of course the primary issue is still timing.

However are you decidedly certain about the pins selected for the output lines?

Hello!
And thank you for confirming this discovery. I had an inspired guess regarding this particular board shortly after posting it, but I needed to have it confirmed.

[size=12]Hello!
Normally I run my Arduino Duemilanove via its USB portal, because it seems I am still writing and rewriting these sketches.

I've noticed that the board is wearing the standard coaxial power connector which tells me that it can be supported via the typical wall wart.

I've also during these runs attached things to the power portals on the connectors, can they be used to send power into the board?

After all it is typically running attached to a typical breadboard which has a power supply attached to it delivering 5v at a good delivery.

Hello!
For one of the other boards, I can set an avatar to be anything I want.
However for this one it seems to be not possible, at least for me. So how has everyone accomplished it?
