Re: Arduino-based PIC programmer

I've been eyeing this projects for months now, finally got around to doing it - works great!

Re: Unable to get serial to work

Ok, so after all my fluffing around trying to get the core to work as expected on modern mac computers the final refactoring is elegantly simple: don't use the Freetronics core, use the one that comes with the ardiuno IDE 1.0 (I'm using and tested with 1.0.2).

HID detection only occurs after the first tone is generated. To be thorough I did try your suggestion with delay...

Re: Unable to get serial to work

Hi Everyone, I've had progress on this and have found some interesting interactions with the more recent mac models. Note that my topic was about the serial communications from a sketch, but this issue also includes the Keyboard and Mouse HID. I tested the sample sketch from my initial post on a Lin...

Unable to get serial to work

Hi Everyone, My first post here, so apologies if this is too much or too little info! I've recently purchased a leostick but I'm having trouble getting the serial port(s) to work from a sketch.
