Father Christmas AKA my lovely wife bought me an emic2 to go with my Mega but the demo software will not run on the Mega. The emic2 uses a serial port which is on pins 2 and 3 in the demo so must be targetted at an UNO? As the Mega has multiple ports and I believe the addressing of the serial ports is different so the demo software may need changing and I am not experienced enough to modify the software. Have tried changing the pins to match the Mega serial ports but to no avail.
     The demo is on the Parallax website. Father Christmas is pi**ed off having spent 60 english pounds.

                Can anybody help

Is it a shield? If not, use some other pins.

It doesn't take a lot of experience to post it, though.

Moved to pins 50 and 52, changed demo software pins to match, now all working well. I had tried moving to serial TX/RX pins but this does not work.

         Many Thanks for your advice
