    I got it working... but a bit confused

    I've tried using the code from...

    "ONKYO TX-SR804.zip"
    - larger GML, smaller LUA

    &

    "ONKYO TX-SR804-2.zip"
    - file dates older by 2 days
    - larger LUA, smaller GML

    ... not sure which is the one to use, these have no version numbers in the LUA



    ALSO...

    It seems that if I have EventGhost running Girder will not control the serial device. It "looks" like it does. There are no LUA errors but nothing happens. Also, if I try to load Girder first, it seems to 'lock' the serial port and EventGhost cannot talk to it. I need BOTH apps to be able to control it.

    Is there a way to share the serial port?

    Most apps are not written to share a serial device. So take your pick. For instance in order to use ElkRP serial I have to shut down Girder. Its just the basic design of serial device drivers.


    There are some third party apps that will let you try and share the port

    I'll look into the sharing and maybe virtual serial ports.

    thx

    Aaron did you ever get this to work? Did you make your RS-232 cable?
