[solved] SR-box port problem in OpenSesame 0.27.1 under winXP and win7
I'm getting a perculiar error with my PST SR-boxes using 0.27.1 tested so far under both winXP and win7 (haven't had time to test under linux yet).
The lights appear to work, but there appears to be no collection of button-presses. The device just acts as if nothing has been pressed. When I change it so that a 'dummy' SR box is used, it works fine (i.e. I can press the keyboard buttons 1 to 5 and it works fine), so I'm thinking its not my script set-up. Also, the lights work as expected - I can program which ones to come on.
The strange thing is that, my computer is using com3 and com4 for the two com ports. it doesnt matter which physical port I use, or which port I specify; the lights come on either way! So, one sr-box object configured to use com4, and switch on light 4 will switch on light 4, but also an sr-box object (within the same experiment) configured to use com5 and switch on light 5 will also do this within the same program and with the box connected to the same (either) serial port.
Anyone else had this problem, or got any idea whats going on? I've tried different SR boxes, plus other stuff I haven't mentioned.
Really grateful for any thoughts.
