Compiled it, but no reaction of the Smartsocket, even when sending the V, CSTxxxxxx or CDT1 command.
Until now, the only way I have been able to scroll messages was by connecting it to an Arduino and relaying stuff. I think I will purchase one of those miniature Arduino PCB's and write some kind of abstraction layer. Shouldn't be much code as I don't use all the commands.
It seems that computers in general have a hard time sending mixed ASCII/binary stuff, microprocessors seem to do this better.
