Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Wow... After, well.. getting it.. it all makes sense! Go figure right? :D I was right though, I was over thinking it. Well understanding it more, anyways:D But you're right, removing the const and trying to have a variable that I can send just doesn't work! I'm able to send small messages that I've ...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Thanks for the reply! I'm sure I'm... overthinking this stuff, but I just.. am so confused! lol :/ I do understand a bunch of the commands (for the most part, at least what they do, not so much how they operate). But in terms of the vw_send() and get messages, I don't understand the terms they're us...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Cheers, sorry for the mixed up questions, a bit confused, as always! :) Some questions I did have though, I noticed on your page you posted about a wireless LCD screen, I've tried using the VirtualWire library to send information to another Arduino and print it out on the LCD. Just constantly sendin...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

First off, I'd like to say thanks ALOT for the help Miles, I was tempted to just let my 2 pairs gather some dust! (along with a couple LCDs) I got it up and.. well receiving! Just not able to send what I want at the moment. Well, I'm a little confused on how to ... send information! :D I've used a s...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Well I really like how.. simple the code looks for the VirtualWire. That's a big thing for me! I'm still a wee-little nublet in the programming sense.. actually all of the electronics sense. I'm kind of looking to send commands to my LCD, having transmitter connected to the PC sending commands to it...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Woot! User error, indeed. Turns out the new breadboard I got, is reaallllly touchy with the jumper wires I got, if it's not in like perfect, it won't receive. Haven't had the same problem with lighting LEDs, or anything else I've used, only when I've used the receiver so may be some kind of weird br...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Sorry for the delayed response! I tried hooking the TX to the RX, and vice versa on the boards, with no luck.. it's gotta be user error. Here's the code, I might have hooked up the tx/rx to the wrong ones. But I tried to switch em mid-code, I must be missing something. Or code issues. Receiver // re...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Sorry if the questions.. seem a bit obvious, but, do I try connect the two arduinos together with the same code and try? Haven't had much experience with TX/RX pins, all I know so far is not to use them, and if I need to, don't connect the pins until after code is uploaded, but that's about it! :oop...

Re: RF Reciever & transmitter [433Mhz, 315Mhz] Library.

Hey guys! Just wanted to say I'm fairly new to the Arduino, I've gotten it up.. blinking, wrote a library and that's about it so far! So my experience is limited, but I'm having an issue with the 433Mhz pair. I hooked it up how the PDF showed, and used the VirutalWire examples, with no luck! The Ard...
