Which code samples are you refering to....
I have not started on any programming yet. I am simply using (cut and paste) the .hex file included in the $50 tutorial to modify a HS-311 servo. Looks like the .hex file gets loaded into the ATmega8 and the motor spins. I also dumped the file from the ATmega8 flash and found that it got 4 times larger when it came out, but that could be due to all that extra empty FF bits at the end.
My big problem is I cannot get the pot to stop the servo from spinning, as the tutorial describes. No matter how slowly I turn the pot.
I think if I hook an oscilloscope to the PD0 and PD1 pins I will know what is going on... Any suggestions. Did you have to write your own pulse generator?
