hello erich

That error usually happens when another application is using the serial port (i.e. ZTerm open or Processing is still connected etc etc)

make sure you have run the macosx_setup.command script.
shut down an restart machine after running the script

hope this helps

The issue is quite simple and it's due to us not having released version 2 of the software yet smiley

When we manufactured the boards we also made the bootloader much better and fixed a few bugs.
We also decided to up the speed of the bootloader to 19200 bauds to speed up the download of the code.
This is supported by Arduino v2 which will be out over the weekend. this adds a lot of improvements
and bugfixes.

Sorry for not explaining this clearly on the website, I really thought the new version would be out
before people got the new boards.

exactly what we needed smiley

I'll add it to the application and if you email me your name I'll add you to the credits!

you can thank the user taiyac for breaking it

I have a notification everytime somebody posts a message in the Italian boards and I get them regularly.

have you verified if the system didn't lose your subscriptons in the move?

I would also like to see the spam problem improved.

I don't see it as a huge problem... it's not that we have a 90% spam 10% content ration..
we are cleaning the forums every day multiple times...

Everything you do is logged already... on webservers every hit is logged.
when you use your gmail google indexes the content , they know what you write... if you're chinese they will openly help the government come after you..
when you shop at supermarkets they log your credit card number, they know what you buy.
when you make a phonecall it's logged... when you walk around with your cellphone in your pocket it's logged
wherever you go.. it's logged.
when you logon to facebook this happens
the list goes on and on and on

here it says IP logged it's because it's logged anyway even if nobody writes it smiley

Are you suggesting we merge all the international forums into one??

I think you spotted it

I forgot about this,

The original bootloader we used to make the arduino bootloader would start only if pin D6 was low... we removed that requirement
but not the initialisation code

get rid of that stuff

As far as I know the order process has not stopped... but because of the holidays in italy it's a bit slow.
expecially today the 15 of august is the day when every single italian is  on holiday.
i will phone the manufacturer to see what's going on

At the moment that check is done before uploading (the code gets recompiled before uploading)
I would like to see that check happening during regular compilation. I plan to make that change for version 5

from a check I made now I think we need only one line of code at line 1310 of file
I might be able to make a build this week

that's perfectly valid in C... maybe not desireable but valid smiley-wink

usually I tell my students to use
if (true == FishyTasteInMouth) ....

so if by mistake you use = the compiler will complain

45  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Syntax & Programs / Re: Reading serial bytes and packet from DMX software on: December 05, 2009, 01:23:22 pm

arduino can easily read DMX signals.

Make sure you have a transceiver (MAX485 or similar) to receive the signal then connect it to the RX pin on the Arduino.

setup the serial port for a speed of 250000 bits per second
( Serial.begin(250000) )
then wait for the "break" signal that is a pulse around 800uSec
then read a byte from the serial port... if the byte is 0 then the signal is a valid dmx stream...

start reading and throw away bytes until you reach the right address

sorry for the short message but it should be enough smiley
