I have a D2V with firmware 2.10.
I am using a Pronto 9600 remore with the RFX9600 serial extender to control the D2V to get direct access to several commands and this has been working great for over a year until yesterday.
I am using Windows 7 64 bit home premium with a Keyspan usb-serial adapter.
Yesterday I was using Livevideosettingseditor which is in the utilities folder of the latest ARC download to create some custom resolutions. When I was done messing with this and plugged my serial cable back into the serial extender, I no longer can control the D2V with serial commands.
Using the same cable and connecting back to a computer I can update the firmware, backup settings, and launch the Livevideosettingseditor and communicate with the D2V, but not with the extender.
I also control my pioneer tv from the extender and that is working. I switched the D2V to that serial port and reconfigured the software to use that port which I know works to control the D2V and still nothing.
The regular remote works fine. Is there some way the serial port on the D2V is damaged from connecting/disconnecting cables? If it was damaged, I would assume no other device or software would work either.
Any suggestions of help on this to ensure I didn't change something in the D2V to disable the serial port remote control feature? Is there an easy way to user hyperterminal or something similar to test communication and a list of command syntax to do so.
I have reloaded the firmware, but to no avail. Are there other tools available to do testing and troubleshooting? I see reference to the SETUP EDITOR which is different than Livevideosettingseditor, but cannot find and do not have access to the secure page on Anthem to look. You can PM me the logon information if I can get a new firmware or software there to try out.
