Sorry for the repost, I think I put this in the wrong forum first time.
I've been trying the ShiftIn tutorial (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ShiftIn), but my switch presses are not being registered at all. When monitoring the serial input, I just get 0 returned every time.
I am using the HCF4014B chip instead of the CD4021B:
I'm guessing that the problem could be that this chip has synchronous parallel output instead of asynchronous. It that is the issue, would it still be possible to use this chip with different code? Or should I order some new chips?
