I finally got this done today.
See notes and pics from Wayne above...
- Middle Atlantic Products UNI-1C - connector plate
- Switchcraft EHDB9MFB - 9 Pin DSUB Male to Female
Not exactly high up on the list of technical prowess, but I got it done.
Since I just did a Radiance FW update, I haven't tested it out to make sure it's function (now I need another RS232 cable), but it should work.
- MA blank plate
- MA UNI-1C & Switchcraft adapter
- Lumagen RadianceXE
- iPod dock
- Surge-X SEQ (non-MOV) surge protector

I finally used this external RS232 for a Lumagen RadianceXE FW update.
Thanks Wayne/funlvr1965 for suggesting it.
I'd still like to see a front FW update port incorporated in the Lumagens...

Your welcome Mike, it makes rackmounted gear so much easier to update this way. I also update my Anthem D2 processor using a second installed pin rs232 port. Next is getting the ethernet port to go live, not high on the list currently but will get it done eventually.

So remind me of your setup for external (front) connections:
- RS-232 - Oppo BDP83
- RS-232 - Anthem D2
- Ethernet -- is this because you can't hook up your ethernet from behind the rack?
Will you be using an ethernet switch to hookup to your various components?
I had to crawl behind my bookcase (through bass traps) because the pull out MA rack is too heavy for one person to pull out (maybe not for Wayne) and pushed in a loose HDMI for my XBOX 360.
I then connected to my computer and played MP3s from my music library and watched some family pics.
I realize that is all very basic stuff for people, but I hadn't done it before.

Mike the RS232 connections on the front of the plate is for updating the lumagen and the Anthem D2, I did not get the RS232 port on the Oppo like you did. The ethernet port is going to be so I can plug my laptop into for direct ethernet connection as opposed to wireless, it will be connected to a wired router and the ethernet feed from that will come from my original router 2 floors up in my office. Im sure that all makes sense

I knew you had the Lumagen and Anthem.
The Oppo doesn't update via RS232, that is only for control.
Your wireless must have interference to make it tough to reach the basement.

Mike. It may just be me but your recent iPhone pics don't seem to display.

I think it is fixed.
I dropped off the old Denon AVR at Best Buy for recycling.
