Are the i2c ports on the board auto sensing or is each one of the 3 a specific address?
I found what looks to be the address range 0xA0, but I've also found V0 virtual ports or AX0 Dynamixel ports, it is currently set to N/A. What should it be set too does it matter which of the i2c prey's it's physically plugged into?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Select the RGB Animator control from the list (and any others you want) by putting a tick in the box.
Another problem now when I attempt to run one of the merged sequences the robot disconnects every time. Once in a while the software will also lock up.
This has happened a few times with speech recognition as well but not every time as it's currently doing with the RGB commands.
I'm not using direct network connection at this time currently using client DHCP connection.
No arms arms attached yet waiting on the shoulders servos still.
If this fails what are the chances the hardware is the issue.
Can the network be the issue direct client vs AP connection?
The humanoid head also processes sound as in speech recognition and my voice?
If you have the six body with battery inside, and it's fully charged, there should be no problems. In fact, if it isn't saying it has low battery and you haven't disabled or changed the battery warning then the power supply isn't going to be the problem.
You could try moving the RGB Eyes to another I2C port on the ez-b and see if it works (essentially all you would be doing is re-seating the connection). You could also re-seat the connection inside the Head as well.
As @Rich said if you try to use I2C communication and there isn't a good connection the ez-b will lock up, this is the nature of the ARM chip inside.
You mentioned to start with that virtual ports etc. which there is no reference to in the animator control. Which makes me wonder if you have changed the I2C port on the animator at any time? If you have and you attempt to control something on 0xA0 which you changed earlier to something else this will cause the EZ-B to freeze.
Can you post your project you are using? I'd like to check you have the control set up correctly.
I can upload the project later when I get home thanks for the offer to look over the controls Rich
The virtual ports I mentioned in the beginning was in reference to the a design area. I came across but can't recall right now how where exactly I came across it, but I also recall some other options "Dynamixel" I left it as it was N/A and canceled out from what I can recall.
It's called Six W/Head
Took me a little while but I found your file
Everything works fine on my end, so I'll leave it to our customer service team to take care of a warranty replacement.
