I Become a Beta Tester for Servo Mojo

And I begin my odyssey with HEX coding.

The thing to note is that in narrow mode, the address is just 1 byte, while in wide mode, the address is 2 bytes. So to switch from narrow to wide, you'd use: 0x00 0x00 0x07 (
) And to switch from wide back to narrow, you'd need to send a 2-byte address byte followed by the command byte as follows: 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x06 ( )

Also, what is the code for say address 60 in wide mode? "0x00 0x3c" ?

Yes, that would be correct. And address 60 in wide mode would correspond to the velocity value for servo 1. I'm glad you are making progress with it!
