Hello Manny,

You can find the TinyTV program on github, or you can download it directly with this link: https://github.com/TinyCircuits/TinyCircuits-TinyTV-ASK4002/raw/master/examples/TinyTV.zip

To get coding, you would want to go through the TinyScreen+ Getting Started tutorial to make sure you have all the right background software: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Processors/TinyScreen+_Setup_Tutorial/

Let me know if you have any questions!

General Discussion / FLASH for EEPROM
« Last post by jgavlik on May 13, 2020, 12:06:23 PM »
Is there a "simple" way to use FLASH, like on the TinyScreen+, as EEPROM for non-volatile storage for a few variables?  That is, without plowing thru gobs of code to find out how - just a simple function would be nice.

Thanks,
John

Just an additional remark.

It would be logical that other SAMD based processors than TinyZero could have given comparable wrong pressure and altitude results in case of negative BMP280 chip parameters.

For instance, for the problem described as ".The altimeter readings I get on the barometer are totally different on the TinyScreen+ and make no sense. "  in "Skydive Altimeter on TinyScreen and Tinyscreen+ ", see User Projects / Code examples September 17, 2018, this probably has been the main cause as the SAMD of the Tinyscreen+ also has 32 bit int.

So the recent update of BMP280.h and  BMP280.cpp should also solve this problem.

Where can I get the Tiny TV code for my Tinyscreen+ please? I purchsed the Tinyscreen+ kit only to find out that it does not function the same as my Tiny TV. I am stick in video player mode on my tinyscreen + kit and I can not get the settings menu to pop up, so I cant change it to tiny TV mode. I think maybe the firmware on the kit is incomplete compared to the tiny tv.

I also have a problem with my Tiny TV when I add a lot of videos, when changing the channels, on the second pass, channel 2 is displayed twice. I would like to look at the code to see if i can do some kind of simple fix since I dont know how to code from scratch.

Hello Laveréna,

thank you for the prompt reply but none of them seem to be analog joysticks.
For RC motor controls they are unfortunately not at all similar.

Best regards,
Joseph

Hello,

Yes it is discontinued, sorry for the way it is presented on the website! It must have gotten lost when we changed over our website in the past year. This will be fixed today to correct the posting.

The joystick buttons were too difficult to manufacture with, so we opted for a joystick with an injection-molded (previously 3D printed with resin) attachment. The Video Game Kit became an all-in-one that can be seen with the Tiny Arcade, or the Pocket Arcade. These kits are cheaper and more functional than the previously sold Video Game Kit with all the same technical abilities and then some.

If you are looking for just joysticks, we also have the Joystick Wirelings.

Sorry about the misinformation, and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Laveréna

Double on that, one could then encase it in silicone/epoxy and it would grant structural soundness and water & shock & dust resistance. I have a military grade phone and the weak links are the charger, the jack and the buttons.

Hi all,

do you know if the Joystick TinyShield is discontinued? It says "sold out" for as long as I remember.
The TinyScreen Video Game Kit (ASK1007) is confirmedly discontinued, but it has five components out of which four are steadily available, the joystick being the only exception. It wouldn't make sense for it to be discontinued unless the Joystick is also sunset.

Hey John,

You are correct that the TinyScreen+ and TinyZero are pretty much the same schematically - so there shouldn't be a huge difference in being able to program them.

Do you see this same issue on every TinyZero? You said you had one that worked fine before?

You could try updating the Arduino IDE if it's not the most recent version to see if that makes any difference.

A small suggestion I am sure you are aware of, is to make sure you have "TinyZero" selected in the Tools menu when you are programming.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you find anything out!

Thanks,

Laveréna
