I getting to my wits end. I am using this reference for the MAX7219. and this to show the hookups from the chip to the matrix** . I am using an uno v3 and the matrix is from adafruit. It is the mini 8x8. This is the pdf** for the matrix. I am also using the led control library. gif of what I get.  I guess I can't seem to read the 8x8 schmatic or I am just doing it all wrong. I can't count how many time I have pulled all the jumpers and tried it all again.
Here is my latest try. I only put a few wires in and I tried to copy the wires from another video showing one wired up. http://i.imgur.com/1uzvKC6.jpg Here is a video of the of this setup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iM7C6KP4RR0
I know there are rows and columns and I can see what wires go to the MAX7219 but to the matrix I am confused.
Any help would be great. Thanks! Andy
