SEED Rs232 with 7E2

Hi,

searched and tried whole day but there semms no easy solution for modifying the "Software Serial" to send in 9600,7,E,2 :frowning:
Iam using the seed rs232 shield and want to control a Spectrum LED Wallboard.
Thanks in Advance

I use Mega! On Nano there ist the Serial Begin 7_e2. But on Mega no way?

I use Mega! On Nano there ist the Serial Begin 7_e2. But on Mega no way?

The Mega has 4 hardware serial interfaces. Use one of these and simply set the option that way:

Serial1.begin(9600, SERIAL_7E2);

The SoftwareSerial library doesn't support parity bits or anything else than one stop bit. I modified the library myself for such stuff but that's definitely not recommended and to be used only if there's absolutely no other solution.

BTW, it also doesn't work on the Nano, the SoftwareSerial library is the same on both boards.
