Hi, thanks for the reply.
Yeah Hyperterminal sucks, but I want to have a system that can plug straight into any computer, and hyperterminal is on all windows computers i think.
I found my problem, it was that i had the baud rate low, and I was trying to send the information too fast. It was going missing since the buffer is too small.
Anyway, another question. Is there any software which will take some data from the serial port and display a graph (don't care what format, im sure i can configure my pic for this).
