- Download program with single BT Send Message block configured to send a text message on connection 1 and mailbox 1.
- Go to BT menu on NXT and connect my PC to connection 1 (already paired). Based on the NXT-G help, the NXT should be connection 0.
- Ran program to send the message.
- Tried to execute the following command:
NeXTTool /bt /inbox=0 -msgread=1
NeXTTool /bt /inbox=1 -msgread=0
NeXTTool /bt /inbox=1 -msgread=1
Tried running program on NXT to send message during the reads as well.
NeXTool uses the term "box" for both the /inbox option and the -msgread box. This makes me wonder which one is what the NXT-G refers to as "Connection" (which is why I tried the various combinations).
Has anyone used this tool? What am I doing wrong? Should I just try the MS Robotics Studio?
I tried contacting firstname.lastname@example.org this morning about BT messages on NeXTTool. No response yet ...
Has anyone used RobotC with the NXT? It sounds like it lacks support for a lot of things. Any impressions?
I'll probably try using NBC for a while. Anyone tried this yet?
So many things to try for such a young Robot.
I imagine shipping of the NXT is actually suspended at the moment.
Some have shipped in the US, but you will find from comments in the NXT Step blog (& elsewhere) a number of reports of problems updating the firmware on the brick from the distibuted CD.
I would guess in the order of 500 NXTs have shipped - this is the kind of sales you need before you find out about problems that affect, say, 2% of customers.
To justify my guess a little further: if shipping had reached much beyond a 1000 I would expect to see many more people discussing their first steps here or in places such as lugnet.robotics newsgroup.
Hopefully Lego are testing a fix for this issue now, and there will be no more issues. Then they can ship beyond the US sooner. :-)
I am certainly looking forwards to my NXT arriving September!
Looking at the programs posted on TheNXTStep give me a feeling of "So close, yet so far". It's infuriating!
