I'm trying to control a video switcher from within Mediashout via a midi file.
I found the notes from Bill Lyons who accomplished this feat a few years ago.

Unfortunately his notes are somewhat outdated. Here's what I've done so far:
1) Downloaded Girder 4.0 demo
2) After some effort I found a download for the Midi editor Winjammer
3) Downloaded and installed LoopBe1
4) Thanks to some kind folks on this forum I downloaded and installed
MIDI SysEx plugin.
5) Enabled Generic Serial Support plugin.

Where I'm stuck now:
I need to configure the Generic Serial Support plugin for comm5, 9600, n, 8, 1
and the settings don't allow me to do that. Anybody been there?

Looks like I ignore the Generic Serial Support and communicate(rs-232) via a Lua script. If this is correct, I would like to know...
