New forum format?
Yes, New support system for Trouble Tickets, Knowledge Base and Forums and a great search tool. Plus a Widget on the store...
Since this forum seems to only be a couple weeks old, is there an older forum with some prior, collected knowledge that I could still access? If there is, it might help me not make silly mistakes or answer questions about compiling/building/modifying the OpenEvse in the future.
Yes, the old forum is here:
It's probably fair to point out that no matter how many links you have it will never be obvious to a "first timer," that while the how-to shows pics of the evse being programmed without any connections other than to the ftdi, it will not accept the upload unless the evse pcboard is powered by the AC contacts. I am pretty new to arduino, but it almost looks like the design goes out of it's way to create this confusion because most other arduinos I have messed with are the opposite. However, I understand Arduino is an open hardware specification and allows for this situation.
Then I wonder, perhaps the process is different for the board after it has been connected to the rest of the evse components?
