Help with Hyperterm

I am trying to capture the serial output of my HDVR2 with hyperterm but I don't think I have the settings right. I believe my cable is good, however when the info appears in hyperterm its meaningless (brackets, upside down question marks etc). Hyperterm settings are com1, 115200, data bits 8, parity none, stop bits 1, and flow control none. What am I missing ? Also how do I save the captured data from the tivo to post it ? Thanks for the help.

What are the settings in your rc.sysinit.author and bootpage?

Also, have you tried shorting the tip and middle to see if you are getting a local echo?

I was having an issue with hyperterm so I d/l'd terraterm.....a much better terminal program IMHO.

To save the data just copy and paste the data to a text file..

You may want to try and pick a different com port on your PC....sometimes a modem may be to blame.

Thanks wshful, my rc.sysinit.author has

export TIVO_ROOT=
export MFS_DEVICE=/dev/hda10
export PATH=./:.:/utils:/bin:/sbin:/tvbin:/tivo:/busybox

tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login &


and the static routes for no phone home.

My bootpage is: "root=/dev/hda7 dsscon=true console=2,115200 upgradesoftware=false" -C /dev/hda

I will try the tip shorting for an echo and post back. Thanks
