Both Manual and Digital contol?
It's weird that I got a strange problem lately. During testing, everything worked fine and I could control the SSR manually via a pot and only used the light dimmer module's ZCD feature. All nice and good.

But today, whenever I turned on the light dimmer module, IO2's light will start flashing and OT1 will be outputting a signal around 30% regarding of whether the pins to the pot are plugged in or not. The setup is also not responding to the pot.

It's fine when I comment out the Analogue 1 line in user.h but the problem comes back when I comment in Analogue 1 again.
Check your pot integrity.
Is the cursor (middle pin) voltage changing according to rotation ?

The thing is I get this problem the very moment I activate Analogue 1 in user.h even if the pot is not connected. All 3 pins unplugged. It starts the moment I turn on the light dimmer module.
If I recall correctly, Devices in Artisan Scope should be Arduino 5/6 and 7/8. I don't know why mine because 3/4 and 5/6 but should Artisan settings influence the Arduino / TC4+ even when the software isn't running?

Anyway, what I did was reset Devices, Extra Devices and added back Arduino 5/6 and Arduino 7/8 and now it works fine.

Guess this is one of those little glitches that once you've encountered it before, you never worry if you see it again.
Damn, spoke too soon. Problem came back. At 3.3V, I can only go up to 68% on the heater but at 5V, I can go up to a full 100%. All working fine during testing but it's giving me problems when I'm using the 5V. When I go back down to 3.3V and reset everything, it's fine.
Sorry for the false alarm. It seems that bending the pot's pins to the TC4+ solved all of the problems.
