USB Infrared Toy / Re: LED blinking, device not recognized

Can you double reset (2x fast the resetpin to gnd) the board again?

After a normal reset the red led will turn on after ~5 seconds and will stay on for ~30 seconds.
When a double reset is succesful the red led will NOT turn on and you will get a different com port.
This should be possible since you were able to load the tracker software.

Can you load an empty sketch to the board. This will remove the tracker software.
Can you let me know if the message is also there with the empty sketch.

I've been doing further exploration today of serial over RF, and what I've found is that some poor sack asks this question on a different forum every 2 years, and no one has the perfect answer for them. I just happen to be the poor sack this time around :)

I really want to ask the developer of this miracle of soldering technologies about the possibility of adding a pen with tips to the nano type, they are only for two contacts, but the convenience of working with these nano tips is just a dream of any master

Hi, are you talking about JBC nano tweezers? This one is in my todo list, but at the moment Im too busy, and don't have nano tools, which are damn expensive, sometime when I have time and money to get nano I will add support for it

Bus Blaster JTAG debugger / Re: BusBlaster v4.1a can't connect to JTAG

Hello ian,

yes I needed to set a Jumper to access Update Buffer Mode, I was only able to reprogram the CPLD after setting it.
There is also an other Mode, called Normal Mode but I have no idea what it does.
 
Edit:
I found something about normal mode on the dp site. Can't really tell if I need that though:
When MODE is set to normal, the secondary JTAG interface of the FT2232 is connected to multipurpose pins on the CPLD.

Btw I followed the instructions to reprogram it and now I get a different error :/

jtag> cable jtagkey vid=0x0403 pid=0x6010 interface=0
Connected to libftd2xx driver.

When I place the jumper in normal mode I get the same error that I posted before in Reply #4

XC2C64A_VQ100.bsdl, bbv4.svf. these should be the right files. And you should be targeting interface 1, if I recall correctly (because the JTAG tools all use interface 0).

If this is v4, is there some kind of jumper or something that needs to be set for programming mode? That might be the one with the 44 pin CPLD.
