Hi guys i'm running into an issue with the Parallax Xbee retail kit that i purchased from Radio Shack.
Before i get into this issue please understand i am experienced in using Xbee's i currently have 2 sets on other projects but they are using different adapaters 1 is using the adafruit the other sparkfun.
The problem i am currently running into is that with one Xbee connected to my PC with the USB adapter and another connected to my Arduino Uno R3 on the D0 and D1 pins. With the script i'm testing if i send text through the serial it should turn a LED on and off, also in the script is the Arduino sending out serial print every 10 seconds to make sure the usb is receiving. So the USB receives the Arduino output but when i send the command to LED on nothing happens but the Xbee TX light shows its receiving data. The script is correct because i tested with direct serial and the LED went on and off.
In further troubleshooting i used software serial to change the pins to D2 and D3, in this scenario the Xbee's performed perfectly.
So its seems that the Xbee's will not work correctly if connected to D0 and D1, specifically the Arduino won't receive the commands i send>
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've wasted three nights of my life trying everything i could google or think of.
