I have just built a temperature sensor kit like the K145, but following the Mauri hardware from this link. I´m using all the parts listed, programmed the pic successfully, only item I had to substitute is the sensor, the DS18S20 is impossible to find here. I found one DS1820 and decided to give it a try until I get to import some DS18S20.
I was expecting to get some readings, didn´t care if they´re not accurate, testing if the circuits works is enough for me right now, but I´m here asking for help because can´t get any reading. Voltages are ok on the pic and on the sensor (4.98). Com port 1 selected in rrconfig.
Serial port monitor shows different behaviours when RR and the source code author's program http://quozl.netrek.org/ts/ listens to the port. RR begins the reading and stops just after. The author's program starts and doesn´t stop, but can´t show me any reading on it´s interface. On the monitor I see data both in Up and Down direction, but none of the programs displays it.
Am I missing something? Or the differences of the sensors are enough to cause this. Any help is appreciated.
