I have an item frame on a block of emerald. In the item frame there is an anvil. I'm using vanilla Minecraft 1.9. When I turn the item in the item frame no signal comes out of the comparator. I have also placed a comparator behind the block. No difference.

2 click4 click

After a few more clicks...

7 click all done

As you can see the piston never extended. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

You have to put the comparator behind the block with the itemframe on it: enter image description here enter image description here
