Attention: new temp sensors have colors swapped!

I got an e-mail from a customer that could not get his temperature sensors to work. After double checking his setup, I decided to investigate the issue further and connected a new sensor to my own setup: sensor was not found. What the hell?

I got a knife and cut open one of the new sensors and that exposed the issue: my supplier suddenly swapped the colors!
Luckily red is still 5V, so no sensors are damaged by this mistake: if your sensors do not work, try swapping the yellow and green wire.

Old sensors:
GROUND  –  DATA  –  5V
New sensors:
GROUND  –  DATA  –  5V

If your order was shipped after June 28, you probably got the new sensors.

    I had this problem, and my order was shipped prior to Jun 28. So, as the post says, if the sensors are not showing up on the Device Configuration, try swapping the yellow and green wires. Worked for me!
