In Topic: Any ETAs for Netduino Plus 2 Fixes?

01 December 2012 - 04:21 PM

I'm a complete newbie to Netduino. I just purchased a Netduino2 plus from Amazon and just wanted to test with the "blinky" project to make sure all was well with the hardware and software.


Hi Oliver, although I've personally had issues with the nd+2, I absolutely love my netduino and SL have usually been pretty damned good about getting things resolved. I was a little disappointed it shipped with the issues mentioned above (as you can probably tell) but I'm pretty confident they'll be resolved ASAP. Other (more experienced) members may be able to help with your current problem (which doesn't sound like the same thing we're discussing here). I'd suggest you start a new thread to with full details and see what happens.

Hi Dave, egeorgiou, Basiclife,

First of all, let's make sure your I2C is up and running. I just posted the update here:

Well, I'm not sure about the others but that certainly shut me up. Thank you.

Well, i'm keeping mine, i think Chris Walker has done a tremendous amount of work to make the netduinos a reality.


Sometimes people just need a recharge, and no one have promised you anything other than a prototype development platform with community support.

While I don't think I'm quite as annoyed as others, I'm definitely not happy. I know an awful lot of work has gone into the netduinos and it's appreciated but the number of buggy/incomplete features is surprisingly large. Personally, I can live with the little ones but big ones like this need to be addressed in a timely fashion. If the original ETA had been 3 weeks, I don't think anyone would've minded waiting 3 weeks. Even if it was expected to take a week and will now take 3, a simple post from Chris to that effect would probably have made me comfortable to wait. What I personally find to be an issue is an ETA that passes with no updates/news. It makes it seem like the issue isn't being taken seriously.

In any case, I'll wait a little while but I do object to having forked out for a bit of kit that's not usable.

I'm disappointed... Mine arrived this morning and isn't usable. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a product to be fit for purpose before it's shipped. We all know things can (and do) go wrong but since these issues seem to be fairly fundamental. Why was it deemed ready to be shipped in such an unusable state?

In Topic: Driverless PC<->Netduino communication using USB

That said...I wouldn't buy a Netduino Plus 2 for this feature. I'd buy one because it's awesome, and if we can deliver this as an update in the future it's a really nice bonus :)


Thanks again for the rapid reply. Unfortunately, for me this is the "killer" feature. I love my netduino but the ability to deploy/debug/communicate entirely over USB will make things so much simpler, it would be _the_ reason to purchase an upgrade.

I look forward to further updates and will likely buy a new netduino when this becomes available.

Many thanks
