I began experimenting with SoapBox Snap this evening. I had planned to convert a Phidget project I had to Soapbox when I noticed SoapBox Snap. (Aside: Is there a simpler helloWorld for Soapbox than the Pinball article on CodeProject?)

Following the force instructions in the tutorial I was able to get an output set. However I had the following several anomalies.

I connected a fairly new 8/8/8 with a version of 901 (according to sticker on the board). SoapBox Snap Device configuration indicated: "Unknown Phidget"

I connected a fairly new 0/0/4 ver 707 which reported as an 8/8/8 with a drill down for all 8 iunput, output and AnalogInputs.

My project is using a Phidget 2/2/2 that I don't see in your supported device list. I didn't hook it up to SoapBox Snap as it's at another location right now.

I used Help about to look for a version number. none found. I installed the version from the SoapBox Snap download page (not from the sources in the svn).

There's a beta release you can get here. Please let me know if that helps at all.

That beta seems to have fixed my problems with the Phidgets model and version number identification. I plugged them in one at a time and all three at one time. Looking better. I forced on one relay on the 0/0/4 board. It actuated. They identified correctly. Thanks, - jeffa

@jeffa - I'll get that version rolled out as a release version shortly then. Thank you for testing it for me!
