RS-232 control of 2014 Samsung

I am looking to control a couple of new Samsung tv's with RS-232. I have two LG monitors currently installed in my motorhome controlled by Crestron and I want to update to the 7150 for one and a 6350 for the other (size limitations). The specs both say they have RS-232, but nobody at Samsung seems to know what I can get them to do. Basically, I need the ability to turn on, turn off and select the input. Other things may be nice in the future, but that is what I am using now with the older LG's.

The other thing is what do they use for connectors for the RS-232? Is it a DB9 or a 3.5 mm audio jack? I have been told both by Samsung. I have not found any to look at yet, hence the questions.

Thanks

you will need a DB9- to stereo mini, it will plug into the EX-Link port on the back of the TV.


DB9--- Stereo mini
2---------- tip
3 --------- ring
5--------- sleeve

Crestron should have a module as well
