I've got an arduino with 5 capacitive distance sensors plugged into the
analog ins. I just flashed the newest firmata-standard, and now things

the first thing I do is connect to /dev/ttyUSB0, which works fine. Then I

[analogIns 0 1(

[analogIns 1, 1(


to the arduino object. The funny thing is that any given input only seems to
turn on about 1 in 4 times I send the message. Once it's on PD receives the
data like a champ. I tried adding delay between connecting via serial and
turning on the inputs, but it didn't seem to help even when adding a 2
