Yes, That Ernie!
December 2001
I recently dragged out my "Renewed by Philips" TS1000 that I've carried with me for a dozen years. And I can't download to it or upload from it.

I think, based on similar experiences with URC, that my computer might be trying to use the wrong port. How do you check this and correct it?

I get a totally blank error message -- nothing there. This is also what I get with TSS and a Marantz RC5200.

Yes, using the latest software from RC, also used for years and years.

I've got a Lenovo ThinkPad T420, running Windows 7, and I'm running the software in Administrator mode. I'm using a URC cable + a null modem, which I've used successfully before... but I'm not sure I've used it successfully with this computer. Just to verify, I just tried it without the null modem. Nothing.

The USB to RS232 adaptor is a TrendNet TU-S9. That also might be the issue.

Anyway, help!?

and Thanks.

A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
