Hi, i have a ws2801 led pixels which i want to use as ambient lights.

the leds have a fault since the red and green are crossed, meaning when there should be a red light, i get red and the other way around.

is there a way to change the arduino code, and to "cross" the red and green colors in the code so that i'll get the correct colors ?

this is the arduino code :
Code: [Select]

#include <SPI.h>

#define LED_DDR  DDRB
#define LED_PORT PORTB
#define LED_PIN  _BV(PORTB5)

// A 'magic word' (along with LED count & checksum) precedes each block
// of LED data; this assists the microcontroller in syncing up with the
// host-side software and properly issuing the latch (host I/O is
// likely buffered, making usleep() unreliable for latch).  You may see
// an initial glitchy frame or two until the two come into alignment.
// The magic word can be whatever sequence you like, but each character
// should be unique, and frequent pixel values like 0 and 255 are
// avoided -- fewer false positives.  The host software will need to
// generate a compatible header: immediately following the magic word
// are three bytes: a 16-bit count of the number of LEDs (high byte
// first) followed by a simple checksum value (high byte XOR low byte
// XOR 0x55).  LED data follows, 3 bytes per LED, in order R, G, B,
// where 0 = off and 255 = max brightness.

static const uint8_t magic[] = {'A','d','a'};
#define MAGICSIZE  sizeof(magic)
#define HEADERSIZE (MAGICSIZE + 3)

#define MODE_HEADER 0
#define MODE_HOLD   1
#define MODE_DATA   2

// If no serial data is received for a while, the LEDs are shut off
// automatically.  This avoids the annoying "stuck pixel" look when
// quitting LED display programs on the host computer.
static const unsigned long serialTimeout = 15000; // 15 seconds

void setup()
{
  // Dirty trick: the circular buffer for serial data is 256 bytes,
  // and the "in" and "out" indices are unsigned 8-bit types -- this
  // much simplifies the cases where in/out need to "wrap around" the
  // beginning/end of the buffer.  Otherwise there'd be a ton of bit-
  // masking and/or conditional code every time one of these indices
  // needs to change, slowing things down tremendously.
  uint8_t
    buffer[256],
    indexIn       = 0,
    indexOut      = 0,
    mode          = MODE_HEADER,

  int16_t
    bytesBuffered = 0,

  SPI.begin();
  SPI.setBitOrder(MSBFIRST);
  SPI.setDataMode(SPI_MODE0);
  SPI.setClockDivider(SPI_CLOCK_DIV16); // 1 MHz max, else flicker

  // Issue test pattern to LEDs on startup.  This helps verify that
  // wiring between the Arduino and LEDs is correct.  Not knowing the
  // actual number of LEDs connected, this sets all of them (well, up
  // to the first 25,000, so as not to be TOO time consuming) to red,
  // green, blue, then off.  Once you're confident everything is working
  // end-to-end, it's OK to comment this out and reprogram the Arduino.
  uint8_t testcolor[] = { 0, 0, 0, 255, 0, 0 };
  for(char n=3; n>=0; n--) {
    for(c=0; c<25000; c++) {

This is a fault?
