View Full Version : Problems with output
02-16-2008, 04:21 AM
We're using MPlab v 7.2 and sometimes we dont get outputs when the cable is conected to the controler and the computer.
We're using the new 2008 controler.

By "sometimes," do you mean randomly, or is there a pattern to the behavior? What circumstances lead to the loss of output? And output from what to what? Computer to robot, or printouts from robot to computer?

You really haven't given enough information, but if I were to take a guess...
If you are using a USB to RS232 converter cable, a lot of teams have noticed they don't always work correctly and may be the problem you're experiencing.

Hmm well, we got problem with the printouts from the robot to the computer, although, it happens only in one "FrcCode.mcw" file.
If we're trying to print something from the robot to the comp with other files, it works okay.. We know that the problem is the file, and we did include stdio..
hmm any suggestions?
sry for thr priveous bad explanation.

Its more than likely you're using kevin's 'serial ports' code, and you need to set the stdout serial port to port 1. I had to do this on my current code.
look through serial_ports.c i think it is for some direction.
