Hi,

I wish to buy three Ringo robots but only one remote and one programmer, are you planning to sell a 3 pack like this?

Also I was looking for your contact email address but I couldn't find it.

In the future I wish to be a distributor of ringo in my country, the philippines, so I hope we can talk about that. Thanks!

Did you ever get going?

After reading your post a couple of things occurred to me:
•did you download and read the Ringo_Guide_Book manual? pp6-13 outline a very specific order of steps to perform to initialize things
•you did not mention d/l the necessary driver and installing that before plugging the Ringo hardware into the Mac USB port
•after the above, be sure Ringo is turned ON before trying to Tx/Rx with it

After installing the driver and connecting the Ringo hardware
•I found the identification and selection of the "Port" name initially confusing, but the following completely resolved a connectivity problem I had early on:
the manual on p.11 says to expect on the "Port" menu to see an option like " /dev/tty.usbmodem or /dev/tty.usbserial". I have NOT found one with a name like that,
but instead I find and have been able consistently to use a port named something like: "dev/cu.usbserial-########" where the #-mark characters seem to be uniquely generated by the OS, so they can vary.

Hope things are working by now. I am running just fine both with an iMac and a MacBook, both using 10.10.5
