Waiting for char

by sliverstorm on Wed Jan 21, 2009 11:57 pm

I am 99% done! Minty works, minty broadcasts radio... but I can't talk to minty. RX works- I can see the terminal output when it boots and when you hit the volume button- but TX doesn't seem to like me. When it says 'waiting for char' and I tap a few keys, it doesn't get them. Hyperterminal hangs, puttytel prints them but nothing happens (66 waiting for char... 66 66)

I know I got it to work a year or two ago, but I can't figure out what's wrong this time. I've rechecked all my connections on the board and they seem fine- plus, I know I can program the PIC via tinybld (if I program v1, it plays music but prints gibberish to the console. v2 works fine, and interrupted flash doesn't play music and sends gibberish)

Anyway, I've messed around w/ different settings, different drivers, different programs... I can't seem to get it to work! Anyone have input?
