I just got a Panda II. Hooked it up with USB, updated firmware, run programs, everything is good. But I want to use the USB as as host, so I followed the directions at: http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=USB_Client to get into serial debugging mode.
However when I run MFDeploy and ping it over the com port (I’m using a regular RS232 cable and a RS232 shield to my computer’s COM1) I get mixed results. I’ve also tried using TeraTerm to communicate with the boot loader (ala the USBizi manual) and it works but with tons of garbage characters.
I’ve added screen cap of these two tries. Any ideas?
Also note: I’ve used this same RS232 Cable, shield and port on the computer to do serial debugging on a Netduino Plus.
