RS422 control of Smart Video Hub

PostSat Feb 28, 2015 5:00 pm

Hi Class,
So I've been pulling my hair out over controlling a 40x40 Smart Videohub via rs422. It is setup in Server mode, 9600 N81, and after connecting, I receive ">". Every minute or so another will appear, So according to the manual "On connecting to the serial port, the client should send a carriage-return. The Videohub Server will respond with a > character prompt, which is not followed by a carriage-return or line-feed. Receiving the prompt indicates that a connection has been established. The same prompt will be issued after each command received by the Videohub Server." With echo on, I type my command. I have tried every permutation that I can think of to get it to accept the command, but guess i am missing something... Ill be the first to admit I have limited experience with RS422, but I can't seem to get it to respond to any commands. Im sure it's some tiny detail I'm missing.... Thoughts?
