LOL, I agree... I would like to get boblightd working on windows as well; Only one person on this forum has it working! wish he would post a howto
I'm running a Mega 1280 w/four channels over all pwm pins. Have the latest pde uploaded...
have a boblight.conf from boblight google source; not sure if it should be using usb, since windows is detecting a usb to serial device with a com3 i/o...

I would be very happy if you can list the packages that you use with cygwin to get boblight to compile, and where you get those packages. Can you do that?

Since I've experienced that strange behaviour with Lightpack regarding the nVidia ION chipset I got a question to our linux users.
Is anyone of you using boblight on a machine with an nVidia ION chipset successfully?

Boblight + ION + Openelec (Linux) works great for me.

I was actually able to compile boblight in Cygwin today, after some hacking of the code to avoid the issue described here.
When I built it, I realized that kimp93 attached the wrong boblightd.exe file in the archive he links to. The correct one is attached in the archive here.
I now get my lights up and running, but I cannot get the colors right. Has there been changes in the way the different colors are sent out in comparison with v1.3? With 1.3 I get correct colors, but now it seems that the are completely random. I use the cofig file included in the archive, is there something obvious I'm missing?
I'll try to include a full xbmc log file soon if that helps.

sounds like a messed up boblight.conf ... xbmc.log wouldn't help in that case...

Do an svn update, most likely that patch is messing with the timing.

Thanks for the quick feedback. I still get the same strange color output.
And, stupid me, just remembered that I removed EHOPRT to avoid a compile error earlier:

Removing it is the correct fix.
What hardware are you using with boblight?

I'm using the setup described in http://livelightproject.com/.
It works perfect with boblight 1.3 together with getpixel.
Edit: I fiddled a bit with my configuration file and when I use "5A" instead of "55 AA" as prefix, it works as a charm! It's wonderful!!!
