Thumby / Re: Thumby development Discord server or something similar?
« on: October 20, 2021, 02:26:17 PM »
Hello all!

Thank you so much for your interest in chatting with us and others about Thumby! ;D

We have been strongly entertaining the idea of having a TinyCircuits Discord Server. We think it would be beneficial to have one and are looking to start one soon - it will likely be announced via a Kickstarter update, but we are internally discussing the best way to merge/differentiate it with our existing community channels like the forum, and defining what specific role it should serve.

It's a big step to take on what could be a big responsibility for a tiny team, so we appreciate your patience as we work to bring a TinyCircuits Discord server to the public sometime soon!

Let me know if you all have any tips on how to make a good Discord server - we would love the feedback since some of us are new to Discord.



There isn't a current 'save your spot' feature, but you can change the tinytv mode to the video player mode so that you would be able to step through videos and play/pause/fast forward through them. You can change the mode and a few other features using the settings menu:

Thank you for your support! We love making cool stuff  :)

MacOS Big Sur has had some Big problems over the past year, so I'm glad this problem was resolvable, albeit not in a direct way.

Thank you for reporting back that removing the hidden files worked! This is the first time I've seen this bug, but I'm sure it won't be the last - glad to know there is a solution!  :)

Wow! I've never seen that happen before, and I've been debugging TinyTV problems since we started selling them. Thank you so much for sending me the videos and screenshots.

It looks like there are some invisible files that your version of MacOS has created and these hidden files are causing problems. What version of MacOS are you using?

From this page, to reveal hidden files on an SD Card: -
"How do I view hidden files on an SD card on my Mac?
Whenever you insert an SD card or connect another data storage to your Mac, it appears in the left panel in Finder within Locations. If you go to that location and press Shift + Command (⌘) + Period, you’ll be able to see hidden files on an SD card, a USB drive, an external hard drive, and so on."

The above page will also instruct you on how to delete these hidden files that start with "." and that should remove the problems hopefully. You will also see a .DS_STORE file and here's some more quick info on what that file means:

Let me know if that helps!

All the titles of the .tsv videos on the SD Card should be shorter than 50 characters long and should not include any characters outside of the ASCII characters - not following these rules would produce strange results like what you are describing, but it doesn't appear that a title error is the problem here.

Can you send a video of the behavior you're seeing and a screenshot of the files on the SD Card? It sounds like the videos you put onto the SD Card are somehow duplicating themselves, is that true?

The channel numbers are randomly decided using modulo in the tinytv program, so every once in a while funny characters get inserted with a larger amount of videos - this is a bug that can happen sometimes.

It might also be helpful for you to send one of the videos you've converted to see if I can duplicate the problem here. Let me know!


P.S. Bebop as in Cowboy Bebop??

These are all very cool contributions - I haven't had a chance to play them yet, but I will soon!

Eventually, I will also add them to the Game list here too if that's okay!:

Let me know if you make any updates to the games on the forum, so I can be sure to keep the website up to date as well!

I just tested the Flash example program with a TinyScreen+ and had no issue writing and reading the byte value of 8. Can you tell me what hardware you used?

This looks awesome! Excited to see what it would look like on a Thumby screen!

Yes, we sure can! Did you have any issues trying to check out on our site?

Which YouTube video are you referencing?

I am glad you were able to solve the problem! Sorry for missing the update!

Hello Bullwinkle,

Could you attach your program's file? Should be faster to help you debug that way!

Did you try Serial.readString before trying the Until version?

My last quick tip is to check that your baud rate in the code matches your baud rate in the serial monitor. Let me know if that helps!


General Discussion / Re: How to expand program storage space?
« on: August 12, 2021, 07:03:57 PM »

Would you mind posting or direct messaging the program you're using? Or at least the error log?

It will help me help you debug if I can see what you're seeing. What hardware are you using?


General Discussion / Re: How many Shields can you install?
« on: August 12, 2021, 06:59:03 PM »

There shouldn't be an issue as long as all the shields don't have any conflicting pins. You can check this with the compatibility matrix:

Physically, if you're going to be moving this stack around at all it might help to have a mounting kit between some of the boards:
You could use one mounting kit and space out the components as I have poorly portrayed in the attached image.

Additionally, depending on what boards you plan on using and project goals, it might help to use the Wireling board format instead of TinyShield:

If you want to share more on what boards you want for your project or what the end goal is, I would be happy to recommend any hardware setups that might work better / be cheaper.

Let me know if you run into any questions on compatibility.
