LCD won't display

I am having trouble getting the LCD to display. It is always lit up with no lettering. I know there is a signal coming off the pins where the lcd is connected to the avr because I took off the lcd and put leds in place of the db4 -db7 bus lines and they blinked, so the avr is doing something. I am u...

Re: Network connections being blocked except for pings

I ran into the same issue. I am assuming you gave yourself a static ip address then. If so you need to add a gateway and a dns service to /etc/config/network. option gateway 192.168.0.1 #or whatever your normal router's address is. option dns 8.8.8.8 #is google's dns. Try this and see if it makes a ...

Re: Anyone want to sell me some parts?

Good idea. I already bought and built my AVR chip programmer and wished I could have just paid to get mine programmed. Thanks for bringing it up. I am going to try to learn AVR programming by doing it myself, but I would have bought a preprogrammed chip if it was available earlier.

Re: USB-audio adapters known to work with OpenWrt/mpd

Wow. $0.23 for a USB-audio adapter? Do they actually work? :D They are the blue audio adapters that give the continuous sine wave. I got it to work with the alsa drivers using this link: http://mightyohm.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=227 The sound quality is meh, but I only intended to listen to sp...

Re: Streaming duration?

I need to change the code to add a digital input which I would control with a switch. I have never done AVR programming before. Although, I know C, I had trouble understanding the code in step eight. I would like to add another control and I am not sure which line to use or how to program the chip t...

Streaming duration?

I plan on building the radio as you set it out on your tutorial. I am curious. Does the router continuously download music or do I have to turn it off to make it stop playing music. I don't want to consume bandwidth when I am not using it. I managed to get the serial header soldered on and I will be...

Re: USB-audio adapters known to work with OpenWrt/mpd

I just followed the link that Tinkernut had on his list. I haven't personally tested them. They came today, so now I just have to wait until the wl-520gu arrives.

Re: USB-audio adapters known to work with OpenWrt/mpd

I ordered a bunch of these. TInkernut suggested them.

I got them for $.19 a few days ago. The price has gone up to $.23 though.

Re: The Serial Port.

I did see that. I wanted to try to avoid making that big of circuit, but after reviewing it and the code, it seems like the way to go. Most of the lines on the left side are power and control for the uC, I assume. Instead of the potentiometer, I assume I apply a signal of 5 v to the PC4 line of the ...

Re: The Serial Port.

Thanks for reply. I think I would rather use a microcontroller than a usb mouse. Could you please point me in the right direction?
