recv_into Error

by dbulmer on Thu Oct 22, 2020 9:01 am

I have been trying to use John Park's scoreboard tutorial for a week now with out success. Now there is an official tutorial at https://learn.adafruit.com/matrix-portal-scoreboard Still does not work as show in the tutorial.

The only difference in my code from the tutorial code is that I have my wifi and Adafruit IO info in the secrets.py file.

I keep receiving the following error and it keeps repeating over and over. The code seems to run for a while but then crashes.

-<Error Quote>-
Socket missing recv_into. Using more memory to be compatible
Team Red is now Team Dar
text index None
An error occured, retrying! 1 - Failed to send 3 bytes (sent 0)
Socket missing recv_into. Using more memory to be compatible
-<End Quote>-

Is there any update to correct this issue. I have gone to Discord and not received any useful assitance.

Could you try removing the Requests library folder from your CIRCUITPY device's lib folder and trying an older version of the Requests library:

brubell's suggestion solved my issue... I had to revert to version 1.6.0 of the requests library before I could interact with IO.

I am using the same board as the OP and library bundle version but the CircuityPython 5.3.1 variant.

I've spent the day trying to resolve a similar issue using this guide - https://learn.adafruit.com/iot-pyportal ... n/overview .
I am using a pyportal with the most recent firmware & libraries installed . Everything was so slow and then would error out and stop working. Installing the older requests library as brubell's mentioned solved my issue.

With all the guides i've seen on adafruit, I am hoping someone has told people about this? I just found this post by accident myself.
