Asked this before but did not find a solution yet. I m trying to get Image Director 3.1 work so that I can fine-tune my gamma curve and greyscale on my VPL-VW1000ES. I installed Image Director 3.1 on my W7 x64 system (with all latest Windows updates installed). I also bought a RS-232 to USB adapter from Sweex: http://www.sweex.com/nl/assortiment/connectivity/converters-data-linking/cd005/
. Windows automatically installed the correct drivers for this and it is listed in my system/hardware in W7 as rs-232 to usb (COM5) port. Next, I connected the RS-232 plug to the VW1000 'REMOTE' input.
Image Director does not find my projector. I DID notice that Image DIrector TRIES finds SOMETHING because when I config Image Director to eg. PORT2 or PORT4 it IMMEDIALTELY tells me 'no projector found', but when I select PORT5 in Image Director (the actual COM port that was installed my windows) it takes something like 10-15 seconds before I get the exact same notification the no projector is found.
I think it MAYBE has something to do with the SETTINGS of the rs-232 to usb port under windows. I can set quite some things there:
- BITS PER SECOND
- DATA BITS
- STOP BITS
- FLOW CONTROL
Maybe someone can help me further on my way with making it working?
