Loving my kit. I have a couple questions, though. I didn't know there was an option for neon colon separators. Are these avaliable from you or do I need to source my own?
And on the subject of the separators, mine kind of do a fade-in/fade-out thing at roughly 2 second intervals, can that be changed to a solid on/off alternating every second?
Lastly, I don't think my optoresistor is functioning. Enabling dimming just seems to dim the LEDs and they stay dim regardless of ambient light. I noticed the diagram in the instructions has the connections labeled, though the components are switched. I connected to the pins on the board according to its labeling and I'm assuming those are correct. I'm not really worried about this working or not, was just wondering if I did something wrong.
There is an easy way to see if the LDR is working. In normal time mode press the button three times (short presses), and this will show you the current value that is being read. At full dim it will read "01:00:xx" and at full brightness, it will read "09:99:xx".
It should change rapidly if you change light conditions.
It should be connected from the GND to the LDR pins of the header.
