I have a working display, connecting MAX7221 directly to pin 30 as described here: https://simvim.com/tech/module_max.png

This works!
Then, when i am trying to multiplex the MAX7219, it doesnt work.
I am using this setup: https://simvim.com/output/svc_7seg.png

The multiplexer is already working as an input multiplexer, i just reused it (and reconfigured it as output) to have less possible errors.

Thanks in advance.

If you have connected all as described, it definitely should work!
Else, you need to check your wiring again (address lines, signal line connection, etc.)

Hi Vlad,

I updated my thread earlier, but it didnt get updated for some reason.
I did wire it wrong, not seeing the difference between input and output.

Thanks.
