Your after sales sent me a new board that was promised to have the correct firmware on it. It is behaving differently. Right now, it just turns off and on and then displays 1234. The error message is:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I have a replaced board and this still doesn’t work. I’ve tried 3.3V and 5V and it makes no difference.
This is different than last times errors, see above.
Has anyone managed to reprogram one of these things as advertised? Frustrated…

Still doesn’t work. Same problem.
Binary sketch size: 4,700 bytes (of a 30,720 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0xe0
avrdude: stk500_initialize(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x00
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0xe0
Still stuck, does anyone monitor these comments?
I’m trying to download the example that comes with the sevseg github project, it basically counts up from 0. But, I can’t get the sketch in to my open segment. I have Arduino Pro/Mini @ 8mhz 328 selected, when I upload, the board turns off and on but then displays a -0-9 and I see this on the Arduino IDE
Any ideas whats wrong? I’m using IDE 1.0.5 with the 5V FTDI breakout on USB using port /dev/cu.usbserial.

Which type of Arduino board should I use with this device. The docs suggest ‘Little Arduino 328 @ 8Mhz’ which isn’t an option on the Arduino 1.0.5 IDE on my Mac. A little precision in the description would be appreciated. I have it hooked up but can’t reprogram the sketch on it.
No public wish lists :(
