    Just wasted 3 days searching for a problem that didn't exist. I had plugged an input on my dsPIC into the wrong pin... and I was wondering why it wasn't working. Ugggh!!

    Maybe you should reformulate the question. Has anyone else NOT done this?
    Simple errors are the hardest to find.

    I know it sometimes DOESN'T happen, but it still does happen. Doesn't matter how smart or dumb you are, we all make mistakes. But in this instance I poured through hundreds of application notes and datasheets... only to realise that the program was perfect, it was looking for an input on pin 14 not 15.

    I have a friend in the same business and we call each other when one of us can't see the forest for the trees. This has been going on for 30 years. Everybody occasionaly suffers from cranio-rectal inversion.
