I am trying to program the minipov3 using a serial to parallel port converter. Is this possible? I have changed the MakeFile to set the AVRDUDE_PORT = lpt1 but am receiving the following error when running make program-minipov.
avrdude -p attiny2313 -P lpt1 -c dasa -U flash:w:minipov.hex
avrdude: ser_open(): can't set buffers for "lpt1"
avrdude: serbb_setpin(): SetCommState() failed: The handle is invalid.
make: *** [program-minipov1] Error 1
Any solutions or ideas would be very helpful. Thank you.
I should mention I am using the kit. I am running windows xp on a laptop. After assembly everything looked good and was greeted with a nice chasing light sequence.
