Re: Ren48 LSD troubleshooting with Holidaycoro floods
You can manually trigger the PIC itself to trigger the outputs on the 48lsd?!?? That would be really cool. If not, the value of the diag would be to be sure the PIC is working (programatically) so you know you ARE programming the PIC properly, that the clock is right, and the PIC control of the outputs at least do partially work (the ones exercized at least). Sort of like making sure the brain is working first.
Pulling out a PIC and jumpering across the PIC socket is good for seeing if all the outputs work but not the PIC functionality itself, right?
I've always thought the diag code should blink all the outputs (simulating a data stream to any other PICs on the board if that is possible) or at least all 8 of the ones it is in control of itself like some other DMX based controllers do themselves in test mode.
