I've finished putting together my first arduinome. After flashing the serial and firmware to the arduino, it says it connects to max just fine but when I try it out using the monome test app, the interactions with what I'm doing on the screen and which LEDs light up are seemingly random (one or two LEDs will light as I click various things but they don't correspond to what I'm pressing). Button presses come up with 'cell coordinates out of range' in max.
The issue seems to be that the arduino isn't receiving messages properly (the wiring with the shield and LED board seems to be fine - it does the startup scroll when I plug it in). The Rx light on the arduino doesn't always flash when I send messages from max and in some apps (eg. nerdscroll) it doesn't flash at all.
For some reason after I flashed the serial the arduinome port shows up as COM30 in arduino 1.0 and windows 7 device manager and not /dev/tty.usbserial-a40h-001 which I'm told it should. Could this be an issue with the arduino (duemilenove atmega328)?
