Trying to use a BS1OEM with the VMusic2. Can't get it to even run the demo program on the Scary Terry site. I have a BS2 and a Picaxe working fine. It is not the VMusic2, because I tested it with a working prop. Trying to troubleshoot this thing. Anyone help with the easiest way to read the serial output of a pin so I can see what if anything is being sent to the VMusic2? Thanks.

Did you run the·firmware (http://www.scary-terry.com/vm2/ftrfb_2400.ftd.zip) update·for the VMusic so that it can work with 2400bps?

It's using T2400, so when it's "idle" (doing nothing) then the SEROUT pin should be +5V· The BS2 Demo uses "84", 9600 True, so in that respect it's the same.

I did run the firmware update. Checked the pin and it does read 5 volts. Still no go.

If you connected the SEROUT pin to a LED-&-resistor (going to GND), it should dim/flicker when it's sending data.

I'd try modifying the BS2 Demo for 2400bps to see if the firmware updrade upgrade·took.

What's Scary Terry got to say?
