Re: volts.py output problem

When the print statement in spirit_core.py is extended with , i2c_reply[0] and/or , i2c_reply, one can see a list of value 255 ([255,255,255,255]). So the register as...

Yep I used exactly those params. I also tried Arduino duemilanove as board for this board has a special usb virtual usb programmer.

I think I now tried all possible combinations of ...
