I have used a USB to serial cable from my laptop and a DB9 m/f cable from my PC and both don't work. I tried with the receiver off and on. Also tried different baud rates.
I was told by Anthem that settings editor is the same for D2 and AVM-50. Let see what tech support says.
Nothing special at all. Connected, ran the executable file and it connected. Check your USB to Serial Adapter's assigned com port and make sure it not something out of range that the Anthem software automatically scans for.
From the Anthem Read Me:
"If you are using a USB to serial adapter:
1. Make sure its driver is properly installed. If a Windows message pops up just before driver is installed saying that the driver is not Windows-certified, DO NOT USE IT. Some of these "budget" adapters are known to load funny data into the preamp, causing it to freeze up, which is not covered under warranty.
2. The virtual port must be assigned to COM1 through COM6 for installer to run. If installer can not locate preamp, go to Start Menu / Settings / Control Panel / System / Device Manager. Double-click on Ports, then double-click on the adapter. In Port Settings, if it shows COM7 or higher, change to an available port between COM1 and COM6."
