So you want to connect to your Didj’s or LX’s terminal…
This guide is here to help you.
The Square peg in the round hole.
Lets first talk safety. If you attempt a direct connection from your pc’s serial port to the DJHI you WILL Damage your Didj / LX and possibly your computer!
A direct serial-line connection won’t work with the Didj or LX because the RS-232 spec uses 12v, while the Didj prefers about 3-5v. So you’ll need an adapter to communicate to the UART on the Didj. The DJHI was designed to be compatible with as many common uart adapters as possible, hence the 3 pin and 6 pin header choice.
