Software needed

 For programming the Arduino board and for displaying the output from it you will need Arduino IDE application. It is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X so everybody should be able to run it off his favorite operating system.

Next you will need a code which will be compiled and uploaded to the board and will enable it to communicate with the TV’s EEPROM. I have provided to you two ready-to-compile code listings you can load in IDE (one for read and second for write). They come with annotations explaining what is happening during the code execution and you can alter it to your liking if you wish.

Let’s have a closer look at the Arduino IDE software and I will explain to you the basics you need to know to proceed with the procedure of restoring black level on your plasma.
