I just found your project and it looks like you've started something I've been interested in doing for a long time.

What is the status of controling devices over RS232 interfaces?

I have a Mitsubishi wd 62525 with a RS232 interface and recently found the documentation on the command protocol for it.  I was thinking I could contribute to the project by doing as little as passing along the information, or as much as whatever it would take to make it work.



Hi Allen,

we have RS232 support based on text protocol over ethernet. There is no native RS232 support using COM ports yet.
I am using an ethernet to RS232 converter (Korenix JetPort 5201) to control my LCD television with it.

    How does the protocol for your television compare to the specification I attached?

It looks like this is a binary protocol. This is currently not supported.

My TV is using a text based protocol.

Hi, I see there is a branch in the SVN for General Serial interface. What is the development status of it? Is it made for binary and HEX data, or only ASCII is supported? Is it going to be a part of the 2.0?

It's not going to make it into 2.0 – it's in the back burner for the moment until I find some free time to get back to it, or somebody else picks it up. It would support binary protocols as well as ASCII.
