Man, Scott, I love this one. It came out great! Especially the top half, where the pain got 'diluted'. At the bottom right it's still concentrate. Like you have the top half is how I wanted my radio to look like.

Re: WARNING: Known problematic USBASP

I have 4 programmer that I flashed with the main.hex. I have a virgin 128 chip installed and non of these programmer talks to it. I bought a fifth programmer that arrived today. I hooked it up to the chip and it talks to it. I get the sck error and the 'Device signature' error (even tho I have set -...

Re: Usbasp Cloner

I have five programmers and one mcu128 that doesn't want to be programmed. :D I'm trying to cover all the bases, including that I programmed the programmer wrong or that the grand mother of the president has constipation or what ever causes the chip not to be programmed. If in the process I convert ...

Re: Usbasp Cloner

Let's see if I get it right. I load the file in your usbasp_cloner.zip into the 'main' programmer with Arduino 1.x. I then solder a buzzer (can I use the one I took out of the transmitter?) and a resistor as shown in the pics above. What do I do then with the board.txt?

Re: Audio (voice) - Stock 9X PCB

Guys, unfortunately people don't read the threads completely and keep buying the voice module from emartee. we know that is not good.. So, my suggestion is to remove the links for the board and if people want that board we could put instead a link to Thomas9x's site.. I think it's him that has some...

Re: Getting rid of the Hobby King usbasp SCK error

No taker on the fuse question in the previous page? I suspect that my m128 problem stem from the programmer. I suspect that I didn't flash it correctly. The only thing would be the fuses. I don't know if I give the command that Romolo posted before or after I flash. I know that when we flash the m12...

Re: 9XR Firmware burn failed

Partial success! I flashed the spare chip that I have, the one that is not installed in the radio! The external oscillator did the trick. I'm not even sure what firmware is on the programmer that I used. I think it's still the original one. I'm not sure that the flashed mcu will work once installed ...

Re: Er9x128

You appear to have connections for both the voice module and the rotary encoder. Both of these connect to signals that are part of the LCD outputs. Double (triple) check that these connections are not shorting out anywhere. Mike. I know it's kind of off topic but can you solder the wires for the en...

This is what is says. As you can see it reads with no errors. Just the chip report as the wrong chip but it doesn't say which chip type is reporting back. I have it, obviously, set to Atmega128.

The signature error is being caused by too high clock speed from the programmer. Will it help if I hook up an external oscillator? I have one coming in the mail.

Re: 9XR Firmware burn failed

Thanks, Chris, for the data sheet. I looked it up and it shows 4 pins. They are numbered 1, 7, 8 and 14 in the picture so that's what I will go with since it follows the numbering convention of all the 2x7 pin chips.

I haven't done anything yet. I just bought it and hooked it up. I'm trying to read first before I do any burning, just to see if it communicates.
