I'm looking for help in setting up the clocks on a msp430f149. I can find all kinds of ways online after days of googling on how to setup clocks on most of the other devices (I also have an V1.4 launchpad) but no examples on how to setup up a msp430f149 that has a crystal on XT2. (happens to be 6MHz) I've inherited this project and it is what it is. I can get the chip to do what I need it to do in most ways (set and read ports etc.) but I can not get it to use the external crystal. If someone could give me the code that does just that I will buy you a beer next time we meet. Also I believe there is a way to directly output the clock to an output pin if I could be shown that as a bonus I would very much appreciate it. My end goal is a serial port that does tx and rx. I've seen wonderful examples at http://dbindner.freeshell.org/msp430/ but I can't get any of the send and receive ones to work. I can get tx ones to work by playing with the clock settings but only using the internal RC clock. I am Using CCS and C. Thanks very much for reading this. Regards, Kevin
