I changed both the Rx and Tx down to 1.I plugged in an Airlink 101 USB-RS232 converter to my Windoz 7 PC. Looking at the advanced settings, the transmit port it goes from 1 to16. The receive port goes from 1 to 14. Maybe you changed the Rx instead of Tx?
Can you wire the RS232 side for hardware handshake (RTS/CTS)? It is the most reliable.
Presume you have a 9 pin to 25 pin converter to plug into the Haas. Have you checked the wiring in it? The wiring is different for no handshake, partial handshake and full handshake.
I notice the J value also changed from 43.609 to 43.545. Are the changed values always the same? Are they the same if another line of code is added before that line?
I have not checked the wiring, but can check it today. The cables that I have are just labelled 'Null Modem'.
I've currently got a tower PC connected to the Haas. The PC has a DB9 serial output, so the conversion from 9 to 25 pin is via the cable wiring.
If I upload this 1 file into the machine it always arrives into the machine the same. The Y and J values on that specific line are incorrect, then the following 10 lines all have rogue values, some X, some Y, some J changes. I tried changing the values to whole numbers on the first wrong line and sent it to the Haas, then all of the following lines were correct. It's bizarre.
