i want to control a video projector via the serial port (i use the keyspan usb serial adapter), just switching it on and off.
in the projector's manual is a description about how to control it with serial data.
and it works with a terminal application but not with max. the thing is that with the terminal app i can simply type the ACII in the terminal window and send it to the serial port.
for example i type C01 or C00 - ENTER. thats all and it works.
but how to do this in max? please have a look on the simple patch attached, whats wrong?
