If you've yet to figure out how to perform the LED-blinken-Button-pushen demos w/ the STK500, check out the videos. There's a talk about the various features of the board.

I normally download all AVRTV episodes (no matter how familiar with the subject matter I am) but I'm going to give this one a miss due to its size. Our internet plan cannot support many 350MB+ videos before being severely throttled. Am I missing anything interesting in this special?

How do you download an episode, Dean? Do you view the HTML source to get the URL of the video file?

On the bottom of each video entry on the main page of AVR TV, you'll find links for various download formats.

Typically, you may find one or more of the following formats available for download:
- STK1000-comaptible MPEG4
- QuickTime H.264
- 3GP
- Windows Media

For the most recent episode, only the QuickTime H.264 format is currently listed.

You can also subscribe to AVR TV as an iTunes podcast, and new episodes will be automatically delivered to you.

It is just a rehash of the STK500 manual.

Dean, if you don't want to be the last on your block to know about the STK500, I'll be happy to mail you a CD of it. I'm downloading it now.

I probably still have your address somewhere. No promises that you'll learn anything, though.

Well, Dean, I watched it, and I don't think you need to worry about not seeing it.

I can't believe the guy turned on the power and then poked around with that metal tipped pen. We had a DEC field engineer pull that trick once on a wire wrapped backplane and fried our CPU board. Needless to say he was embarrassed, but I think we ended up paying the replacement cost.

??? Now, THAT I'd like to see a picture of. How old is it? I've got an old (with dataflash) and newer (without dataflash) unit on my desk and both have RS232SPARE on the outside.

Well, thanks for the offer anyway Chuck - much appreciated. Similarly, if anyone needs a copy of all the episodes (minus 32-bit AVR episodes) since the site started, I can burn them onto a CD.

Dean, if you're maintaining a library of these things then maybe I should mail it to you. I'd be happy to, even though you won't learn anything.

Well, if you get time at some point in the future, I suppose. I guess I can take up the part of AVRFreaks librarian ;). Cant hurt to help those without large broadband internet connections (i.e, Australians).

Dean, I'll get it in the mail tomorrow. If you want me to send it some place other than where I sent the mug, PM me that address before tomorrow.

Placing the STK-500 in front of you, with the switches and LEDs closest to you (and the RS232 ports and the power connection facing away) the CTRL port is to the left and the SPARE port is to the right.

I have three STK-500s of varying age (at least one old enough to have the dataFLASH mounted). All look the same.

I have a hard time believing this. Either it is not a STK500, or you are wrong. Or maybe you have a real collectible...

As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.

The STK500 shown in the video is the same as my current two, as well as the other 5 or 6 that I have either given away or sold over the past 4 or 5 years.

I'd like to see a picture of this newly revised STK500, if there really is such a revised version.

Don't worry about it - everybody's had that pleasant experience. It's always more fun with a worldwide audience like we have here.

CD arrived today, thanks Chuck! Now I've got the full set of everything published on AVRTV, minus the 32-bit AVR focused videos. If anyone needs a copy of all the episodes, ask and I'll send them out.
