Looking at one of the docs care must be taken! There is a Touch to db9 that will not function because the db9 is not wired properly for RS232. db9 RS232 always uses pin 2 and 3 for data and pin 5 for ground.

So what are you saying Greg-E? That Interlabs tutorial/pinout to make a DB9-DB15 cable for the console is wrong? I'm just not sure what you mean.

You mean this is wrong: www.interlab-net.com/docs/lightworks/support/Console_cable_pin_out_for_Touch_ONLY.pdf

And this is the right cable: www.interlab-net.com/docs/lightworks/support/run_console_series_I&II_via_standard_Sub-D9_port.pdf


Also, I was thinking that if the protocol used is RS232 that it was just a matter of getting a RS232 DB15 to DB9 cable and you would be set? Is there any difference in the wiring suggested by Interlabs and the wiring of a standard DB-15 to DB9 RS232 cable?

Not to mention that while the pinout in the first link is clear, I'm sure I follow what's going on in the second link.

Looks like 8-pin miniDIN connector. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini-DIN_connector)
