as to that xp bootcamp solution... hmmm... it just doesn't feel right.  :-/
(gonna try it, anyways.)

tell me about it, i bought a mac for a reason, the reason being its not running windoze.

all this may not be necessary if you don't mind using windows XP on your shinny new Intel Mac.....    smiley-grin

i've been trying to incorporate this readserialstring function to the MAX7219 code, so i can send a string of bytes from processing, to arduino to output to an led matrix, but so far i've had no luck.

do you have any tips on this? i'll post what code i have done when i get home, stuck in work just now.  smiley-sad

what system are you on, and have you installed the appropiate drivers? and do you have a serial object in you max patch? dont think i've ever used the hi object so i cant assist you there, sorry.

thats what i use, they're pretty sturdy, but then i dunno how they would hold up to being inside an item of clothing.

i'd solder them in to be honest, on the other side.

thats ok, thought it was just me. i'll need to see if i can upgrade the OS on this old beast of mine.

i might have missed something obvious, but here goes anyway....

i've been using arduino 003 and my new usb board(previously a home made serial board) with no problems on OSX 10.3, until some thieving monkey stole my ibook.

until i can replace it, i downloaded the software to use on my old 600mhz imac running 10.2.8 but i cant upload a program to the board. i have installed the drivers, and checked everything i can think off a million times, but to no avail.

when i try to upload, the TX and RX leds flash twice, and i get this message in the IDE...

dyld: /Applications/arduino-0003/tools/avr/bin/avr-gcc can't open library: /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

Atmel AVR ATmega8 is found.
Error: No such file or directory

talk about kicking a man while he's down.....

help me please!!!!!!  smiley-sad

cheers in advance,

i was just testing you.... honest. smiley-wink

oops, spot the donkey.... i'm not very familiar with the usb design. i remember the good old days when serial connections were the daddy, and usb was just a glint in his fathers eye.  *sigh*

10  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Troubleshooting / solder bridge on FTDI chip pins on: March 17, 2006, 01:37:36 pm
i just recieved my new usb board via UPS, i've been using the serial version until now, but on close inspection theres a solder bridge between two pins of the FTDI chip.

if i lay the board on the table, with the usb connector on the left, on the bottom row of pins of the square FTDI chip, theres a very small solder bridge between the 3rd and 4th pins from the left. i'm in work just now so i cant test it properly with any code, but it powers up when i plug a usb cable in (the led lights up).

do you think this is going to be a problem?

hello, i've since updated my blog, so if anyone has any ideas or suggestions about the project, please feel free to comment, critisise etc.....

that sounds quite cool oliver, cheers! i had thought of trying to get arduino to listen to the midi signals directly, but by the time i add the program to deal with the midi signals and triggering loops to the atmega chip and all the animation sequences, i would only have about 100 animated loops to play with, which is a bit limiting.

but it would be very interesting for another idea i have.... damn, too many ideas, not enough hours in the day!!!!

how does the sound to light thing work? can you wire an audio input to the analogue pins on arduino? i've been trying to find a way to switch lights/led's on, when a certain frequency is heard, idealy a 5 or 8 channel spectrum analyser type thing.

Although this isnt really Arduino news, i didnt know which section to put it in... feel free to move it if needs be.

anway, heres the link for my blog regarding the main project i'm using arduino for.

it'll be updated regulary as the project progresses, but at the moment its a little sparse....

Hi everyone, i've been working on a project for a while now using the max7219 chips, and it works great with PD and MAX, but does any one have any example code on sending data from processing to the arduino to run these chips?

i've never really learned processing/java, and i realise that i might be better off asking over at the processing forum, but theres seems to be more activity over here concerning the Max7219.
