RS-232 Connection and Protocol: Connection between the unit and remote controller with RS-232 modem cable (No Wire Crossing). Pin definition RS-232 transmission formats: Baud Rate=19200bps Data Bit=8bits Parity=None Stop Bit=1bit Flow Control=None Command / Response codes of RS-232 transmission: note 1: After computer sends command to the system, computer has to wait for response from the system. Then computer can send next command to the system. If this system is under autorunning, RS-232 communications maybe fail. note 2: To configure Autorun follows a sequence of commands --- ATNxxx + ATTxxx + ATPxxx + ATIxxx … note 3: If this system is not on Pattern 47.Color Setting, respond CRR300, CRG300, CRB300 or CRY300. note 4: Procedure of setting RX EDID name string : send "ERX00?" -> wait "ERX00?" response -> send name string (12 bytes) -> wait "ERX004" note 5: In the name string, the rest unused bytes (<12bytes) should be filled with 0x00. note 6: After ERX99? response, name string (12 bytes) is followed. note 7: After ERD001 response, this system reads sink's EDID and transmits them (datastream) to remote terminal. If this system reads sink's EDID fail, the system sends '0xfe' and stop datastream. This system supports 2-block EDID, datastream length=block0+block1=256 bytes note 8: After ERS001 response, this system erases sink's EDID and fill with 'FF'. After erase completely, the system response is ERS002 If erase fails, the system response is ERS003 note 9: After EWR001 response, this system will waits for EDID datastrem(256 bytes) from PC After receive datastream completely, the system writes datastream to sink. If write successfully, the system responses EWR002, otherwise EWR003 note 10: Procedure of setting custom string : send "MOT001" -> wait "MOT001" response -> send custom string (12 bytes) -> wait "MOT002" note 11: In the custom string, the rest unused bytes (<12bytes) should be filled with 0x00. Custom string supports English language only. note 12: After MOT999 response, custom string (12 bytes) is followed.
