    Stupid me forgot to get the 1N4148 Diode. I have plenty of PNP Transistors though. Which smart person here remembers how to use a Transistor as a diode?

    At the RatShack. They have a project box that comes with a perf board. I just did some dremel hacking to fit the DB-9. BTW, the Shack doesn't carry the 90 degree female (or male) DB-9 connectors. I procured mine from Frys.

    On their site they list some project boxes that have cutouts for DB9 and DB25, so one of those might be handy also. They seemed larger than I needed though.

    I really wish they carried 90 degree female RJ-11 ports so I could've made it 100% modular. I suppose I could always tear apart an old modem or something...

The display on my V1 goes blank, as it should when the concealed display is connected (or in my case, the 4k resistor loop is in place), but there doesn't appear to be any data getting to the port.
    I built mine also today. After the initial startup, the display goes blank on the V1, but the software one doesn't show anything. When I hit connect, it doesn't say Error: Not connected like when there is nothing connected. I also tried changing modes but nothing seemed to work.

    I guess I will triple check my wiring.

    Anyone else?

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't get it working on the first try

    I tried to find more info on the radar Yahoo Group... unfortunately it's a moderated group, so my membership is still in limbo.

    I took the liberty of contacting Jim Mitchell producer of "Software One". Hopefully he will join us to help us troubleshoot our interface issues.

    I wonder if he'll make the source available - then we could really integrate it into one of the front ends. Nice full UI on a dedicated skin and then automatic switches to that skin when something gets detected! That would rock.
