All,
I got my Propeller demo board in the mail. I was excited to see the graphics capabilities, so I connected it up to my PC and a composite to the TV. I loaded the tv.spin file, and then compiled it to RAM..... I look at the TV, and nothing!

I have a PS/2 mouse plugged into it, I have the power supply plugged in, I get a "propeller chip version1 found on com7" back when I identify the hardware.

I verified that the composite cable works using a DVD player.

What the heck??

Am i missing something? (hopefully)

Thanks!

Dave

The tv.spin object is just a low-level TV driver. You need to run graphics_demo.spin, which uses tv.spin.
