Serial object connecting to beamer
I'm trying to switch a beamer on/off using the serial object without any luck.
I can select the right port called USB-Serial-controller and I set the correct baud-rate and other settings.
The only thing i get out of serial object is 'read 0' and 'write' (out the right outlet).
I attached images from the pdf of the serial messages of the Optoma GT750.
Don't know if the codes i send are correct,.. i attached the sample patch
I use this serial to usb converter: with a PL-2303 driver v.1.4.0
I tried also another beamer without any luck. Even when I turn on/off the beamer manually nothing is coming out the serial object, what normally suppose to happen because RS232 is handshaking, right?
Any clues or suggestions? Thanks in advance!

hereby the full manual of the beamer i want to control:
from page 50 is the RS232 Commands and Protocol Function List
hi, I don’t know much about the topic, but the word "beamer" is a so-called pseudo-anglicism for "video projector", and isn’t really used outside of a few european (non-English-speaking) countries.
I hope you don’t find this condescending, i don’t know, I was thinking that this might help your googling a bit.
thanks for the tip, i will keep that in mind,..
although I googled for solutions also with ‘video projector’ it’s good to know.
