I have completed the kit yesterday and cannot get it to communicate.I was under the impression it is plug-n-play. I checked the wiring diagrams and think I have everything in place. Nothing transmits/receives as far as I can tell.
I posted how I interpret the instructions to upload the files from the Github site. Can you check them? Of course if you have directions on how to program the board, please email me. I downloaded all the TX files but would need to know the structure and description of the process you use.
I have an ftdi that came with the weather station.
Yes I tried several times with those exact settings. I put all the files I downloaded into the libraries and opened and compiled the sketch. It gave an error that there was low memory. I connected the board and it still wouldn’t connect.
When I ran the monitor is said “init failed”
I’ll send the board back next week. We have given up trying to figure this out.
I feel your frustration! In fact, I felt it so much that I built up a unit today (yes, I know it is Sunday - somethings can't wait..But it's better than putting up gutters! Luckily I sprained my ankle and gutters have to wait until next weekend) and I found the problem.
I duplicated your system, and it did not work! Just like yours. Aha! Once I duplicate a problem, I can find it.
I checked the master source here in the office, and lo and behold, the master was Version 9 while you (and GitHub) have Version 8. I reprogrammed my board with Version 9 and everything works.
I've loaded the new one up to GitHub so this should fix your problem.
