  • Silly me. I was specifying my programmer as stv500v1 when running avrdude (forgot to update my makefile). If anyone else makes this error, use this as a guide:

    avrdude -p atmega328p -c usbtiny -U flash:w:main.hex -b 19200  -vvvv

    (Actually, I find that I can specify -P com8 or whatever port I want and it shall be disregarded (but execute without problem) since AVR Pocket Programmer apparently does not make use of a COM port.)

  • I got this to work a few times over a month or so, but today when I connect it, the computer appears not to assign a port to it. USBtiny shows up in Device Manager, but I see no COM port assigned, and when I run avrdude, I get the following error (which seems to have plagued a few other users):

    avrdude.exe: ser_open(): can't open device "\\.\com[anything i try]": The system cannot find the file specified.

    I've tried multiple ports. Anyone know what I can do? Should I buy an Atmel programmer and give up on this device?

  • I'd be interested in these with strips if I could get them with practically no space between LEDs (like 6 LEDs per inch). Any chance of that ever happening?

No public wish lists :(
