I just tried to upload my existing remote setup and the progam could not receive data from the remote.

I used the existing com port settings: 9600 baud, 8-0-1, Xon/Xoff.

Can anyone tell me what their com port settings are that worked?

What is the difference between a Operating and Learned program modes?

I sure wish the documentation was released with the program! They should have posted the documentation even if it was not finished.

Well, you should find 115200 to work. However, it sounds like it's something specific to your system. Have you ever had anything else working on that port?

Win2000 doesn't work. I have to use Win98.

I also have problems uploading something from remote to pc.

Downloading from PC to remote IS working, so the comport and cable must be oke. (I also tested 3 different PC's)

Anyone else got this.

Windows NT also doesn't work. I installed twice and it crashed my PC twice. It actually deleted my kernel file on my PC. I end up having to reinstall NT.

I've had no problem with the program on NT as far as it crashing anything. I've only used the serial interface on a different computer on Win 98, and had no problems there. Others have reported problems and downloaded another copy of the software and reinstalled it. You might try that. After all this time you would think the software would be less buggy.

I'm also having the same problem. I'm running Win 98(2nd edition). Anyone have some suggestions.
I can download from my computer to the remote but not the reverse(I get a failed message-check cable connections)
