[PD] pduino and FSRs

Hello Hans-Christoph, I am using PD 0.39.3 extended. on a windows vista
system. Its PD that crashes, or "stops working" as Vista so nicely puts it,
when I connect the FSRs.
I have arduino connecting via wireless xbees at 19200 baud.
I also use an infra red distance sensor that gives no problem.
I've been routing the data from the FSRs through the autoscale object.
Maybe I should find a way to reduce the amount of data being sampled...every
40ms for example? How would I do that?

Which program crashes? Which version are you using? You will get a lot of
data, from 6 sensors, Pduino/Firmata will read them all every 20ms. I have
never seen a crash using [arduino], except when I unplug the arduino when Pd
is connected to it, so I suspect the problem lies elsewhere.

Should I be applying some sort of filter to the data stream?
Arduino2PD seems more robust, allowing me to activate all 6 analog inputs at
