15006Re: [tracker2] Re: OT3m misconfig and will not reset
- Dec 10, 2012If it's *very* busy with serial port output, then yes, I could see that
being an issue - it blocks while it's doing a port print from scripting
and it might miss the reset commands from the PC over the serial port.
It *should* still work through USB. Are you running KISS over USB? It
seems to have more trouble getting out of KISS mode - that's something
I've been meaning to investigate.
