I've done that, but maybe you folks could help me.
I've tried using the Arduino Serial Monitor, Multi Terminal (from SourceForge, really nice terminal program), and TeraTerm.
What are the correct settings for the terminal?
I have the normal settings correct, 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit.
Anyone know about Parity (I have it set to off, but I've tried every option I can think of)
How about handshake (I hvae it set off as well, but tried every option)
Mode TX and RX? Carriage Return? Line Feed? Both?
Does it matter if I have Local Echo enabled (I like it enabled)
With the Arduino Serial Monitor (Can I use this, with version 0021)?
Line ending? No line ending?
Do I need to push -enter- after putting in $$$ ? (Tech support said no)
I've literally tried as many of the combinations above as I can think of, with both the Auto Connect sketch and the Terminal Sketch.
I've got the shield attached directly to the Arduino Diecimila, and no wires attached to the shield (naked shield). I have an external brick powering the shield, and the USB cable attached directly to my computer (I'm routinely trying two different computers). I've tried both crystal settings in the program (but my crystal is marked with 14.7456).
I know I'm repeating myself in parts of the post, but I feel like I'm missing something really basic here. I've done continuity tests on the shield and pins. The pins are connected to the chips on the board. I've run other sketches with the Arduino, and they all seem to be fine (including ones that report temperatures over the serial output).
Thank you folks SO much for looking at this for me.
