I am running version 0020, hooked to a pololu servo controller. Everything works fine when I use Serial but I'm trying to move to SoftwareSerial or NewSoftwareSerial. Using SoftwareSerial, I have added:
SoftwareSerial sss = SoftwareSerial(2, 3);
In the setup function:
And then in the function that outputs the bytes:
for(int i = 0; i < 6; i++)
If I connect the pololu SIN to pin1 (TX) everything is fine. If I change the SIN wire to pin3 (output for sss) then when the arduino powers up, I get the red light and flashing green (before any calls to move the motor - this is just on power up).
I had the same experience with NewSoftwareSerial.
