  • Seems OK for me using arduino 0022 and the built in SD library. I just need to change the CS pin from 4 to 8. For example in the ReadWrite example I changed:
    if (!SD.begin(8)) {
    if (!SD.begin(8)) {

  • Amazing project!
    You mention in the spec you have 4096 RGB 256 colour LEDs.
    Does this mean you have reprogrammed the backpacks that come with the LED matrices to display more than the default 8 colours?
    If so I would love to get hold of the code. I have some of these matrices myself and was wanting to display over 8 colours.

No public wish lists :(
