I have completed the Monochron and everything is working fine, so I decided to move to the next step and update the clock. I am using a FTDI adapter and following the steps as laid out at http://www.ladyada.net/make/monochron/bootload.html
After following the steps in the webpage, everything is working fine, up to the use of the downloaded firmware. When I use the provided link in the instruction, "Go to the clock listing page, and click on the link that says "Code at Github" then click Download Source and save the zip or tar file onto your computer. Then uncompress it and find the file called monochron.hex in the firmware subfolder and copy it to your home directory (or to C:\ if you're using Windows)". When I use the link provided, there is no "download source" so I used the zip tab to download the entire file structure. Every hex file I find in the firmware directories of each distribution does not work and I get "invalid file format..." for the monochron.hex in the XDali and the multichron.hex in the multichron distribution. I even tried to compile the file in the Dali distribution using the existing files and compiling them from the download.
Am I missing something? I thought that all I needed to do was to download the suitable hex and upload it to the clock. I feel like I am trying to connect different sets of instructions together as I am not finding one that ties all of the pieces together. Is the webpage incorrect? If so, where do I get a more definitive set of instructions for this process. If the webpage is correct, can you help me figure out where I went wrong?
Thanks for any help you might offer.
