1. Please note that the best way to get useful answers on the AVR Forum is to follow some simple guidelines found in a tutorial written by Eric S. Raymond et al., How To Ask Questions The Smart Way:
2. This is the general AVR forum - if your question relates to AVR-GCC, AVR Studio, Projects in the Academy, Selling/Trading Items, or feedback on AVRFreaks.net, there are other forums that you should post in instead as they are dedicated to these topics.
If you post in the wrong forum then the topic may very well be moved to the appropriate forum by the moderators. In most instances a "shadow" topic will be left here on the AVR Forum, unless there are multiple cross-posts and no responses on this forum.
If for whatever reason you double-post a message or response (hit refresh and resend data), please edit one of the messages so that it just says "Sorry - doublepost, moderator please remove" or something to that effect.
