I think I got the answers to some of this on nxtasy, but obviously, I cannot go back to see.
I am thinking of trying to make the NXT into a DCC system (to run my digital HO trains).
I think it would essentially be like having the NXT use a serial protocol (I think just one wire) that does not have firmware support. Is that possible to do?
Is it possible to have direct access to the NXT's digital pins (5 and 6)? I would like to be able to read and write with them. I think that I actually only need access to either one. I know I can do this with pin 1, but I need a much higher update speed.
I'm all for gun control... that's why I use both hands when shooting
