So, I'm making a nice little abstraction for the PIC 8 hobby servo controller at digitalnemesis.com/info/projects/picservo/
I've got it built and more or less working, nice abstraction with GUI etc...
But it's kinda flaky/jumpy. I've e-mailed the person who designed the HW, and he suspects that I'm writing serial data when the PIC is doing other things, and it's misinterpreting my commands.
This makes me sad.
Is there any way to make the serial object obey hardware handshake flow control? I've looked through other people's posts, and I've not found one that uses it.
I believe the USB serial adapter I'm using supports said flow control, though I can also test on a PC with built in serial (I'm using Mac OS X 10.4)
Thoughts? Assistance? Flying pigs?
I wanna get this working so I can release it and people can build cooler stuff easier.
Thanks! I've been banging my head against this for a few weeks now.
