I have built a v3.2 HeaterMeter that will control my home BBQ smoker with a ATMEGA328P (the link to this project is here http://tvwbb.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/9270072103/m/5721075126 and here https://github.com/CapnBry/HeaterMeter/wiki/Heatermeter-hardware), I purchased and built a USBtinyISP and have been having problems flashing the bootloader onto the HeaterMeter.

After installing the Arduino IDE on my Windowws 7 laptop, I attached the B USB cable to the USBtinyISP, the other end of the USB cable to my laptop, and installed the USBtinyISP drivers onto Windows 7.

USBtiny is listed under libusb-win32 devices in the Device Manager. The Driver Provider is libusb-win32, Driver Date 1/17/2012, Driver Version 1.2.6.0, and the Digital Signer is Not digitally signed. The Device type is libusb-win32 devices and the Location is Port_#0001.Hub_#0003. Device status is This device is working properly. Diver files are C:\Windows\system32\drivers\libusb0.sys, C:\Windows\system32\libusb0.dll, C:\Windows\syswow64\libusb0.dll. Provider is http://libusb-win32.sourceforge.net.

When I next attach the USB cable to my laptop and the USBtinyISP to the Heatermeter via the HeaterMeter's 6-pin ICSP header, the green LED glows on the USBtinyISP.

Using the Arduni GUI software I selected Arduino Uno from the Tools, Board menu and selected USBtinyISP from the Tools, Programmer menu. When I select Tools, Burn Bootloader, I get a brief blink of the red LED on the USBtinyISP and the following error message on my laptop.

avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
this check.

Turning on a verbose mode I get the following additional information:

avrdude done. Thank you.

I have checked the connectivity on the pins of the ATMEGA328P chip on the HeaterMeter back to the pins on the ribbon cable headers of the USBtinyISP with an OHM meter and they are fine.

What am I doing wrong?
