    Hi All,

    Currently done a build of AMstudio from Utube and i have followed everything shown but for some reason my display keeps cutting out, I have been told that the Arduino may not be keeping up with the data transfer rate (BAUDS setting) I have tested quite a few different rates but still no luck. Looks like its loosing power as it fades then goes out. Im using a 4 mt usb cable but have tried a short one and still same issue. Not using a USB hub, does the problem lie in the drivers of windows ??

    comes up as a USB serial 340
    link to the build is

    any help is greatly appreciated.
