Hi there,

It's possible you have some hidden files on your SD Cards causing problems. This happens most often with Mac devices. Check out this forum thread and let  me know if it helps: http://forum.tinycircuits.com/index.php?topic=2337.msg5024#msg5024

Cheers,

Hello Arne,

Unfortunately we cannot easily change the screen size, it would require a new circuit board design and software design to support this.  We are looking at doing some other screens in the near future, but for now the screen you have is the only one we can support.

Cheers,
Réna

Glad you were able to get the videos converted!

There might be something going on with the permissions. I recommend running the "Repair Disk Permissions" utility  for the Disk Utility. Instructions at the end of this page: https://www.lifewire.com/using-disk-utility-repair-hard-drives-2260079

Otherwise, you may want to try turning the machine off and back on or a few of the other debugging steps mentioned here: https://www.lifewire.com/can-i-fix-application-thats-not-starting-2260192#:~:text=In%20OS%20X%20Yosemite%20and,correct%20permissions%20required%20to%20run.

Are you able to download the software from the tutorial on each version? Do you download it from Google Chrome or a different web browser?

I want to verify that the consistent problem is the app not opening after it has been downloaded. We have tested the converter with a few versions of Big Sur and some earlier versions of the MacOS, so it might be best to focus on getting the app to work with one of the versions of Yosemite. Can you try a fresh download from Google Chrome and take some screenshots of the steps you are taking to open the app?

If all else fails with the MacOS versions, we do have a Windows version of the TSV Converter available in that same tutorial.

Let me know how it goes!

Cheers,

We don't have anything official right now, but we hope to have something built into the Code Editor at some point in the future! In the meantime, a lot of discussion around sound effects and game-making happens in the thumby channel of our discord if you'd like to join the conversations: https://discord.gg/3nmqb37bJ8

Ahh, I  should've seen the issue before now, but I misunderstood which board you were using based on your initial error code that references the selections made for the TinyDuino.

It looks like you are using the TinyDuino selections to program the TinyScreen+ - which will not work since they use different processors. You need to be selecting "TinyScreen+" in the Tools menu for programming, but first you will need to download the boards package. Follow this tutorial for the TinyScreen+: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Processors/TinyScreen%2B_Setup_Tutorial/

Hi there,

My first recommendation is to make sure the port you are selecting is the TinyDuino. Unplug the device, check what ports are available in the IDE, then plug it back in to see what new port appears. Not all cables have the data wires necessary for programming, many only have the power wires for powering and charging devices - so it may help to try different cables as well.

Next up, go to File -> Preferences in the Arduino IDE and check both boxes for "Show verbose output during: [ ] compilation  [ ] upload", upload the program,  and then you can copy the entire error log and paste it into a .txt file and attach it to a reply.

Cheers,

Linda,

Glad to hear I was helpful!  ;D

No problem! Thanks for the update!

Here's some background on what the interrupts(); and noInterrupts();  code does: https://www.arduino.cc/reference/en/language/functions/interrupts/interrupts/

The example doesn't work as is, but when the noInterrupts(); are commented out, it will work with the mute code.  I hope that helps get you on the right track.

Hiya,

I think I got the example working. It looks like the library changed the way it initiates the IRsend object since that blog was posted, so you would want to use:
Code: [Select]
IRsend irsend(PIN_IR);rather than:
Code: [Select]
IRsend irsend;
Here's the full modified example I got working with some comments. I uploaded this on a WirelingZero with ports 1 and 2. The status LED flashes when I move the Emitter away, so I believe it is working as expected, but I'm not exactly an expert on beam breaking, so let me know how it works for you!

Code: [Select]
#include <IRremote.h>

#define PIN_IR A1     // This is the IR Emitter on port 1 of the Wireling adapter
#define PIN_DETECT A2 // This is the IR Receiver on port 2 of the Wireling adapter
#define PIN_STATUS 13 // The status LED - normally pin 13 for the majority of Arduino boards

IRsend irsend(PIN_IR);
IRrecv irrecv(PIN_DETECT);

void setup()
{
  pinMode(PIN_DETECT, INPUT);
  pinMode(PIN_STATUS, OUTPUT);
  irsend.enableIROut(38);
  irsend.mark(0);
}

void loop() {
  digitalWrite(PIN_STATUS, !digitalRead(PIN_DETECT));
}

I think this example could be improved with some output in the Serial Monitor so we know exactly what's happening since the status LED doesn't give me 100% confidence that I understand what signal's being picked up.

I hope that helps.

Cheers,
Réna

I don't have any other helpful ideas for debugging since it sounds like there's a hardware issue. Please get in touch with us and we should be able to get you a replacement. Reach us through our contact from: https://tinycircuits.com/pages/contact-us

Thanks,

I've got some hands ready to help!  :D

This is our step by step tutorial on converting videos to the .tsv format for the TV using our app, there's no programming needed. Just an SD Card adapter and some clicking: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/TSV-Converter-Tutorial/
There's a section for Mac and Windows

There's also a settings menu loaded on the TV that has a few built-in settings that you can use to customize the behavior of the TV, like looping and autoplaying: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/TinyTV-Tutorial/

Let me know if I can help you with anything else!

Cheers,
Réna
