31  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Reprogram Default Character Set on: July 23, 2014, 11:47:29 am
I didn't see anything in the the datasheet about restoring the character NVM (EEPROM).  I suspect you will have to find the data somewhere and upload it.

Looks like the evaluation kit includes defaultCM.mcm which contains the default character set:

Some people have had problems with the serial receive buffer being too small to hold the whole message. You may want to edit this line in SoftwareSerial.h:
Code:
#define _SS_MAX_RX_BUFF 64 // RX buffer size

Does the GPS have a clear view of the sky?
34  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Content length? on: July 23, 2014, 08:28:26 am
"The Content-Length entity-header field indicates the size of the entity-body, in decimal number of OCTETs, sent to the recipient or, in the case of the HEAD method, the size of the entity-body that would have been sent had the request been a GET."

Sounds like you should be counting the line endings, too.
35  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Sending data to 2 ports without delay on: July 23, 2014, 08:21:47 am
Add a 16-bit (or two 8-bit) shift registers.  Shift the data out and then latch all 16 bits in the output register simultaneously.

If you use the SPI interface you can shift data out at 8 megabits per second.

Hmm I have multiple chips... Would it make a difference if I try to (re)burn the correct bootloader?

It shouldn't.
37  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: shaking servo's on: July 22, 2014, 08:19:50 pm
Are you using anything else?  SoftwareSerial disables interrupts while characters are being sent or received so that can cause servo jitter.  It might also be a wiring problem. If you don't connect servo ground to Arduino ground that can cause bad behavior.
38  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Re: How to get commands to arduino non locally without configuring router. on: July 22, 2014, 08:17:12 pm
Perhaps your router supports UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play).  There are utilities that let you configure port forwarding through the UPnP protocol.

Sounds like the replacement ATmega328P chip has the Duemilanove bootloader instead of the UNO bootloader (optiboot).  That should not cause a problem with the ethernet shield.
40  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Help Controlling a Camcorder (non-LANC capable) on: July 22, 2014, 07:33:28 pm
Does your camcorder have an IR remote control?  If so you can probably emulate that control with the Arduino.

If the camcorder doesn't have a remote control you may have to open it up and connect wires to the control buttons.
41  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Best way to write this nested loop on: July 22, 2014, 07:30:47 pm
I think the problem is that you only call temp() when the SELECT button is pushed.  Instead of calling temp() there you should set a variable to note that you are in the "temperature mode".  Then use BlinkWithNoDelay techniques to update the display periodically, perhaps every few seconds.  You will get a screen flicker every time you do a full screen erase so you should probably only erase the screen when the mode changes and on the periodic updates just change the parts that need changing.  The temp() function (and functions for the other modes) should get a flag to let them know that the mode has just changed or not.  If the mode just changed they should draw the whole screen.  If not, just draw the updates.

Code:
void temp (boolean newMode) {
  float c = tempsensor.readTempC();
  if (newMode) {
      lcd.setCursor(0,0);
      lcd.print("Current Temp.");
      lcd.setCursor(6,1);
      lcd.print("deg. C");
  }
  lcd.setCursor(0,1);
  lcd.print("      "); // Clear the field
  lcd.setCursor(0,1);
  lcd.print(c);
}
42  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Original or clone? on: July 22, 2014, 09:14:18 am
Clone.  The original doesn't have the reset button in the upper left corner.  There should be a blank area there for a label.

"Shields are boards that can be plugged on top of the Arduino PCB extending its capabilities. The different shields follow the same philosophy as the original toolkit: they are easy to mount, and cheap to produce."
44  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: 4-pin breakout on old lilypad on: July 21, 2014, 10:05:21 pm
This page shows the (now obsolete) LilyPad USB Link board attached.  The pins are labeled.

So you just need four pins of a 3.3V FTDI cable.  The DTR signal is not present so you need to use manual reset for uploading.
45  Products / Arduino GSM Shield / Re: GSM data call on: July 21, 2014, 06:56:27 pm

Looks like you want the AT+QICSGP command to switch from GPRS to CSD.

See section 7.2.17:
