    It's PD0 on the AT90USB162, that's pin #6.

    Thanks, now it works! Pin 22 of TLC5928 is the serial data output.

    For those of you interested in getting into the bootloader mode faster, you can solder two microswitches on the board. This method was mentioned in another sticky.

    Mode without the need to hold down the 4-corners key pattern. If you
    think you are going to be doing a lot of programming with the Midifighter
    I would highly recommend adding these switches, simply for the
    convenience factor.
    I used two direct mount switches from radio shack. These are small enough so you can get your fingers on both switches when the MF is assembled.

    Maybe I'll go visit the shack tomorrow. I want to do the LED mod anyway.

    like the bag says. 5mm tact switch. no wires needed. you solder the terminals directly onto the board.

    You shouldn't be getting any lights

    Are you sure there's good contact where you're putting the wires in?
