Hi!

First of all i just want to ask if i'm doing anything wrong, because when i configure my Arduino i always have to do this:
1. Add the device (for example a button)
2. Save the config as a file
3. Upload the config
4. Upload Firmwire

If i DON'T do it in exactly this order, everything disappears and mobiflight tells me that i have no configuration for my card and i have to redo everything.
Am i doing anything wrong or is it a bug?

However, i've been playing around with it and got a lot of success so far. But i tried to change the frequency of COM1 (Offset: 034E).
I've set the value to be $+1 but that seems to change the frequency in too big increments.
For example when the value form the offset is 3205 and i push my button to change it to $+1 it sets itself to 3230 instead of 3206?

What increments is to be used to add 25Mhz to the COM1 freq?

Best regards
BoXon :)

You only have to update the firmware once or when a newer version is released.

Upload your board configuration after changing it, e.g. adding or removing a device. This is the real essential step otherwise your changes will get lost when you close the settings dialogue.

You can save the config on your PC for backup purpose.

For the COM you have to make sure to check BCD mode in the settings panel. Increment by 25 then. An example is provided with the example config in the examples folder of your installation directory.
Have a great day!
