Hi, Have you ever seen conversion boards for NRF24 radios from SPI to I2C (eventually UART), like THIS one ? I'm not as good as it is needed to get the radios to work at SPI, but they're cheap and I need them. Do you know how to use this thing ?
Nope! Seriously, just use the RF24 library by TMRh20, which uses SPI. You can install it with the library manager in the Arduino IDE.
Libraries for SPI aren't even working, I mean at all...
Pictures please? Are they not installing? Or is it a hardware problem?
I'm not a beginner. Istalled: yes, compiled: yes, wiring correct: yes, program: loaded, power: ok, serial monitor: quiet. I can't post you a picture. I gave up long time ago.
Sorry about casting aspersions on your level of ability. :P The usbtinyISP code has an option that converts USB commands to SPI, but you are using UART/I2C I would end up spending hours just seeing what happened when I sent stuff.
:p Interesting. So, I'm not a beginner but these radios are pretty much retarded. How to get them to work when nothing works ?
Use a shield? Or use a RFM69 :)
I thought you tell me something new >_<
Alright then, no other options, yay.

as you were told:
Isaac96: just use the RF24 library by TMRh20, which uses SPI.
Make shure to move the maniacbug stuff to a different location, or just delete it.

I have not found one place where the documentation of the chip is wrong yet.
In Germany we have an aphorism: "If a farmer can not swim, it is up to the trunks." ("Wenn der Bauer nicht schwimmen kann, liegt es an der Badehose.")
"If a farmer can not swim, it is up to the trunks."
Or..".Whatever the fox cannot reach, she says they are green"

Of course the SPI work … at least on the 12B:
Arduino + SPI + 12B
You can download the ZIP but you may need to load IDE version 1.05, 1.06, etc. It may work with newest IDE 1.6.11, but I have not tested. In any event, avoid 1.6.10 as it was warped from birth.
