Are there any coding wizards around when I need them? Answered
I'm sorry to ask a total newb question... but I'm a total newb to shift registers being used with my arduino and 8x8 led matrices.
Would somebody be willing to help me make the code in THIS example so that I can use cascaded 595 shift registers to make for less pin usage on my arduino?
I'm using an Arduino Duemilanove with pin 8 to LATCH, 11 to Serial Data input, and 12 to storage register clock going into two cascaded 595 chips. My displays are 8x8 dual color LED, common cathode, and I've only wired up the red for the time being.
Also, I'm VERY bad at coding. If there's a code, I can read it, but it's like a foreign language whereas I'm better at understanding than reading and writing.
I'm sorry :/ I think I need more help understanding how to plug "shiftout" where "datawrite" would be and how to get it all working.
