Thanks for reply, 115200 / 8,N,1 and I tried every other possible combination as well.Jay C wrote:Red light is a good sign. What are your other settings data, parity, stop?

Connects ok using zterm, but only spits out a pile of gibberish, like this
Connected to an Arduino, set at 115200, red light comes on, nonsense comes out
You should be 8,N,1
On XP using the Arduino 10 IDE serial monitor, the bluesmirf doesn't connect at all, tho it has been set up / discovered / assigned ports .. etc
I tested an Arduino BT, and it worked first pop, so the serial monitor / com set up's are working fine.
On a clean mac, I created serial ports for the bluesmirf, and using zterm got the red light, but then only got glibberish per above. Tried every possible combination of configurations of zterm.
I set up the Arduino to send out the word "Echo" every few seconds, which gives this character "Ç" the "®L÷" characters, are a 10 character numeric output triggered by one of the digital pins attached to a pull up.
So it's almost as if the encoding is wrong, but I've checked every possible combination for that as well in zterm.
