Room Solution Box with Local Video
Input and Output Ports
Connections to the CNXRMCLV are made through the ports on the front and rear
panels. Refer to the illustrations and descriptions, which follow.
AUDIO
The RJ-45 AUDIO port is used to transmit and receive analog stereo audio from the
head end. Refer to the diagrams on page 7 for pin configurations.
VIDEO OUT
The RJ-45 VIDEO OUT port can be used to send up to four baseband video signals
out of the unit and back to the head end. A Crestron (CNX-PBVR4) or third-party
video receiver must be used to convert to single-ended RCA for input to the
CNX-PVID. Refer to the diagrams on page 7 for pin configurations.
VIDEO IN 1-2-3-4
The RJ-45 VIDEO IN port connects to a video distribution box such as the
CNX-PVID8 and accepts four baseband/balanced video signals corresponding to
each of the four levels provided by the CNX-PVID8. This connection can distribute
high definition component video and multi-channel digital audio, or combinations
of S-video and/or composite video. Three of the video signals have cable length
compensation. The fourth video signal has fixed compensation and can be used for
composite video or digital audio distribution. Refer to the diagrams on page 7 for pin
configurations.
Each local video source input has a built-in video sensor.
RS-232
The CNXRMCLV provides one RJ-11 connector for RS-232 communication with
serial devices. This port supports baud rates of up to 115K and RTS/CTS hardware
handshaking. The pins are configured as shown in the following table:

output provides volume and tone adjustments, whereas the record output does not.
Refer to the following block diagrams for further details of the routing capabilities.
AUDIO IN (A – C)
These six RCA connectors provide for three local stereo input sources.
AUDIO OUT
The two RCA connectors labeled OUT provide stereo output of the unit’s analog
crosspoint, but with volume/tone control.
The two RCA connectors labeled REC OUT provide stereo output of analog
crosspoint, without any processing.
IR IN / IR OUT
The CNXRMCLV provides one infrared (IR) input, which is a mini phone jack that
can connect to a Crestron IR detector (CNXRMIRD) to detect fixed low frequency
(38 KHz) IR formats generated by most universal remote control transmitters. This
port supports RC5 IR control and some IR control codes from Sharp Electronics
Corporation.
The four IR outputs (A – D) are used to control either IR or one-way serial devices,
not both. These outputs can also be connected to optional Crestron equipment such
as the STIRP, ST-MB, ST-SPL, SP-RY, and SP-SC.
SENS
As described previously, the CNXRMCLV contains a contact closure type input
accessed via this two-pin connector. The port can be connected to a Crestron current
sensor (CNXRMCS) or any other device that provides contact closure to detect the
power status of a high-power device such as a television.
NET
This four-pin connector is used to connect to other four-wire devices in the Cresnet
system. This connector must be attached to power the unit and communicate with the
control system.
LED Indicators
The CNXRMCLV provides three LED indicators. The PWR (Power) indicator goes
on when the unit is supplied with 24 volts DC from the network. The NET indicator
is typically on when the unit is polled on the network (some flashing may occur).
The NET LED indicates that the current program has a network device defined at the
same Net ID as the CNXRMCLV. (The SETUP indicator and button are reserved
for a function that is to be available in the near future.)
VIDEO INPUT COMP 1, 2, 3
The CNXRMCLV provides three potentiometers (pots) that can be adjusted to
compensate for CAT5 cable run lengths. Refer to “Video Input Compensation” on
page 10 for the adjustment procedure.
Audio/Video Signal Routing
Refer to the block diagrams on the next page for additional details of the
CNXRMCLV signal routing capabilities.

Setup
Network Wiring
NOTE: When installing network wiring, refer to the latest revision of the wiring
diagram(s) appropriate for your specific system configuration, available from the
Downloads | Product Manuals | Wiring Diagrams section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular network run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If network units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the power factor
of each network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the
power factor of the entire chain. The length of the run in feet and the power factor of
the run should be used in the following resistance equation to calculate the value on
the right side of the equation.
Resistance Equation
R < 40,000
L x PF
Where: R = Resistance (refer to table below).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
PF = Power factor of entire run (or chain).
The required wire gauge should be chosen such that the resistance value is less than
the value calculated in the resistance equation. Refer to the table after this paragraph.

NOTE: All network wiring must consist of two twisted-pairs. One twisted pair is
the +24V conductor and the GND conductor and the other twisted pair is the Y
conductor and the Z conductor.
NOTE: When daisy chaining network units, always twist the ends of the incoming
wire and outgoing wire that share a pin on the network connector. After twisting the
ends, tin the twisted connection with solder. Apply solder only to the ends of the
twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up or the tinned end becomes brittle and breaks.
After tinning the twisted ends, insert the tinned connection into the network
connector and tighten the retaining screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three
network conductors.
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique identity
code (Net ID). These codes are two-digit hexadecimal numbers from 03 to FE. The
Net ID of each unit must match an ID code specified in the SIMPL Windows
8 • Room Solution Box with Local Video: CNXRMCLV
Operations Guide - DOC. 8161A
Crestron CNXRMCLV
Room Solution Box with Local Video
program. Refer to “Setting the Net ID in Device Settings” on page 19 for details of
the SIMPL Windows procedure.
Refer to the note on page 26 for a
definition of Viewport.
The Net ID of the CNXRMCLV has been factory set to 42. The Net IDs of multiple
CNXRMCLVs in the same system must be unique. Net IDs are changed from a
personal computer (PC) via the Crestron Viewport.
NOTE: For detailed information on establishing communication between the PC and
control system, refer to “Communication Settings” on page 26. If communication
cannot be established, refer to the “Troubleshooting Communications” section in the
respective Operations Guide for the control system.
Complete the following steps to change the Net ID
1.
Ensure that the device requiring a Net ID change is the only unit
connected to the control system.
2.
Open the Crestron Viewport.
3.
From the Viewport menu, select Functions | Set Network ID. The
software checks the baud rate and then opens the "Set Network ID"
window.

Video Input Compensation
After the system is connected, it may be necessary to adjust the video input
compensation pots on the CNXRMCLV to achieve the best picture on the monitor.
This requires a narrow slotted screwdriver and an audio/video calibration DVD (or
laser disc). Crestron recommends one of the following:
•
Avia Guide to Home Theater, from Ovation Software
(www.ovationsw.com)
•
Video Essentials, from DVD International (www.videoessentials.com).
To adjust the video input compensation:
1.
Place the calibration disk in the system's DVD player.
2.
Search the DVD for the chapter that displays the multi-burst pattern, as
shown in the following illustration.
3.
While the pattern is being displayed on the monitor, use the
screwdriver to adjust the VIDEO INPUT COMP 1 compensation pot
until the line intensity on the monitor appears uniform. Note the
numeric value.
4.
Adjust the other two compensation pots (VIDEO INPUT COMP 2
& 3) to the same value as the VIDEO INPUT COMP 1 compensation
pot.
NOTE: For S-video and component video sources, be sure to adjust the pot for
luminance compensation first (VIDEO INPUT COMP 1). The pots for
chrominance compensation should be adjusted last.
Audio/Video Distribution
As previously stated, the CNXRMCLV receives video and digital audio from the
Crestron CNX-PVID, as well as analog audio from the CNX-BIPAD8, all via CAT5
cabling. In addition, it receives video, digital audio and analog audio from local
sources via standard RCA connections. The unit’s built-in audio/video matrix
switcher distributes these inputs to local outputs.
The following paragraphs describe several signal distribution arrangements that are
typical for the CNXRMCLV.
NOTE: For additional information on video connections over CAT5, refer to the
latest version of the Crestron CAT5 Wiring Reference Guide (Doc. 6137) which is
available from the Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).

Universal Remotes
Any universal remote transmitting RC5 code (and some Sharp codes) can
communicate with the CNXRMCLV and allow the user to select and activate any
function in the control system. An RC5 code is 14 bits long. Each code includes a
5-bit address (or system) and a 6-bit command. Sharp uses a different IR protocol,
but some of their codes are acceptable.
NOTE: The Philips Pronto contains built-in RC5 commands for out-of-the-box use.
Setting up a Philips Pronto is easy!
If using the Philips Pronto, select RC5 code communication. For the Philips Pronto,
the RC5 system number is equivalent to Crestron's Transmitter ID code, which is a
unique identifier assigned to each transmitter. Likewise, RC5 command number is
equivalent to Crestron's Button ID, which is synonymous with the join number used
in SIMPL Windows. There is no need to perform the two multi-step procedures in
the subsequent sections.

Crestron CNXRMCLV
Room Solution Box with Local Video
NOTE: Typically, codes used by Magnavox, Marantz, and Philips audio/video
equipment utilize RC5 codes for transmission. Some codes used by Sharp
Electronics Corporation are also usable.
Universal remotes require two
multi-step procedures for setup.
Some devices from Magnavox, Marantz, and Philips are designed to understand
certain kinds of infrared signals sent by remote controls, specifically, signals
belonging to the RC5 code set. Two procedures are required to setup a universal
remote. The first procedure verifies that the universal remote chosen does transmit
an identifiable code and therefore can communicate with the CNXRMCLV. The
second procedure maps the buttons on the universal remote so that they can be used
in the SIMPL Windows program.
Code Verification
Refer to the note on page 26 for a
definition of Viewport.
Each universal remote comes with its own manual, which lists codes by device and
manufacturer. The purpose of this procedure is to select and program a code into the
universal remote so that it can communicate with the CNXRMCLV. All that is
required to complete this procedure is the CNXRMCLV, a Crestron CNXRMIRD, a
PC running the Crestron Viewport, a Crestron control system connected to the PC,
and any universal remote (complete with batteries and manufacturer's manual). The
control system should be running a valid SIMPL Windows program that includes
the CNXRMCLV (at the proper Net ID so that the CNXRMCLV can be polled) and
a CNXRMIRD. (For details on including the CNXRMIRD in the program, refer to
“Receiver” on page 21.)
1.
Attach the CNXRMIRD to the CNXRMCLV (IR IN port).
2.
Using Cresnet cable, attach the Crestron control system to the
CNXMRCLV (NET port). Refer to "Network Wiring" on page 8 for
details.
3.
Open the Crestron Viewport.
Either launch the stand-alone version of Viewport, or start SIMPL
Windows and from the menu bar, select Tools | Viewport.
4.
From the Viewport menu, select Diagnostic | Identify Transmitter
ID. The software checks the baud rate and then opens the "Transmitter
Identification" window, as shown after this step.
"Transmitter Identification" Window
5.
Point the universal remote at the CNXRMIRD and program the remote
with an RC5 code (some Sharp codes are acceptable as well) as
outlined in the manufacturer's manual.
NOTE: Crestron recommends that codes from manufacturers other than the
manufacturer of the device being controlled be used to avoid IR transmission
conflict. For example, if the controlled device is a Sony DVD player, an acceptable
code from any manufacturer (except Sony) should be used to communicate with the
Sony DVD player via the CNXRMCLV.
Operations Guide – DOC. 8161A

6.
Crestron CNXRMCLV
Select one or more function buttons on the remote and observe the
"Transmitter Identification" window on the PC.
a)
If there is no activity while pressing buttons on the remote, the
code chosen was not an acceptable code. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with
another code.
b) If activity is observed with each button press, the code used was an
acceptable code and the CNXRMCLV can accept commands from
the universal remote.
Map the Universal Remote
Once communication between the CNXRMCLV and the universal remote is
achieved, it is necessary to understand what commands are transmitted and to which
devices. Crestron distinguishes each device with a unique hexadecimal number
known as the Transmitter ID that can range from 00 to 3F. Actually, RC5 codes
display these IDs in the range of 00 to 1F and Sharp codes of suitable format display
Transmitter ID codes in the range of 20 to 3F. Transmitter ID codes are revealed in
the "Transmitter Identification" window.
Each universal remote has a number of source selection buttons on it (i.e., TV, VCR,
DVD, AUX). Typically, those buttons are used when setting up the remote with an
acceptable code (refer to "Code Verification" on page 15). If an acceptable code is
transmitted during that procedure, Crestron assigns the code with an identifier in the
"Transmitter Identification" window. For example, in the window shown below, the
Transmitter ID (Hex): field shows the number 13. Since the identifier falls in the
range of 00 to 1F, the device communicates using an acceptable RC5 code.
Positive Transmitter Identification
The next logical question is, "What is the Button ID?" The purpose of this next
procedure is to map the buttons on the universal remote so that a list can be
generated and used for reference when creating the SIMPL Windows program. A
decimal identification number (or Button ID (Decimal) as shown in the "Transmitter
Identification" window) corresponds to each physical press on the universal remote.
This procedure picks up where the code verification procedure left off.
1.
Complete steps 1 through 6 in "Code Verification" on page 15.
2.
Wherever convenient (i.e., Notepad on the PC or a piece of scrap
paper) create a table for recording the Button ID (Decimal) number
associated with each button press on the universal remote. "Appendix:
Mapping Table" on page 34 contains a table to record this information.
Create as many copies of the table as necessary.
3.
Click the Clear button in the "Transmitter Identification" window to
reset the setup.

4.
Press a single button on the universal remote and observe the
"Transmitter Identification" window.
5.
Record the button title and ID for the action in step 4.
6.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each button that is to be mapped. Refer to the
sample after this step.
Sample of Completed Mapping Table
7.
Repeat this entire procedure (steps 2 through 6) for each source
selection button on the universal remote that requires programming.

Inquiries” on page 33 for assistance.
Setup is easy thanks to Crestron’s Windows-based programming software. The
Crestron Application Builder™ (Appbuilder) creates a complete project, with no
special programming required. Crestron Appbuilder completes all necessary
programming for a base system including all touchpanel screens and the control
system program. Once Crestron Appbuilder creates the project, the system interfaces
and program logic can be customized. It can easily be modified with Crestron
development tools (i.e., SIMPL Windows and VT Pro-e software packages).
The program output of Crestron Appbuilder is a SIMPL Windows program with
much of the functionality encapsulated in macros. Therefore, extending the
capabilities of the system is very easy. Crestron AppBuilder and SIMPL Windows
are intended for users with different levels of programming knowledge. Crestron
AppBuilder is easier to use for the beginning programmer, and much faster for all
programmers. However, it does not allow the degree of control and flexibility that
SIMPL Windows does. Of course, one can initiate programming using the easiest
method (Crestron AppBuilder) and use advanced techniques that are available from
SIMPL Windows to customize the job.
Crestron Appbuilder comes with templates for all supported interfaces. If a user
wishes to create a touchpanel project using templates with a different look-and-feel
this can be accomplished by making a custom template. This custom template can
then be used by Crestron Appbuilder to create the final project files to be loaded into
the panels. Alternatively, VT Pro-e can be used to tweak projects created with the
Crestron AppBuilder or develop original touchpanel screen designs.
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of
the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the
Downloads | Software Updates section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
The following are the earliest useable software version requirements for the PC:
•
Operations Guide – DOC. 8161A
SIMPL Windows version 2.03.12, with Library Update 190 or later. (Also
requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler).

Programming with Crestron AppBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
Crestron AppBuilder offers automatic programming for such residential and
commercial applications as audio distribution, home theater, and video
conferencing. The interface of this tool guides you through a few basic steps for
designating rooms and specifying the control system, touchpanels, devices, and
functionality. Crestron AppBuilder then programs the system, including all
touchpanel projects and control system logic.
Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software
development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, and the Crestron
Database. Crestron AppBuilder accesses these tools behind the scenes, enabling you
to easily create robust systems.
Programming with SIMPL Windows
NOTE: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
CNXRMCLV, developed for specific control system types:
.smw projectname.smw (source file)

NOTE: The following assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL Windows.
If not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software.
NOTE: In the following description, the PRO2 control system is used.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron's primary software for programming Crestron control
systems. It provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number of
workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer can select, configure, program,
test, and monitor a Crestron control system. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop
functionality in a familiar Windows® environment.
This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes a
CNXRMCLV.
Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by
selecting hardware from the Device Library. In Configuration Manager, drag the
PRO2 from the Control Systems folder of the Device Library and drop it in the upper
pane of the System Views. The PRO2 with its associated communication ports is
displayed in the System Views upper pane.
PRO2 System View
18 • Room Solution Box with Local Video: CNXRMCLV

The System Views lower pane displays the PRO2 system tree (refer to graphic on the
next page). This tree can be expanded to display and configure the communications
ports.

C2Net-Device Slot in Configuration Manager
To incorporate a CNXRMCLV into the system, drag the CNX-RMCLV from the
Cresnet Control Modules | Cresnet Video Modules folder of the Device Library and
drop it in System Views. The PRO2 system tree displays the unit in Slot 9, with a
default Net ID of 42 as shown in the following illustration.
NOTE: The first CNX-RMCLV in a system is preset with a Net ID of 42, when its
symbol is dragged into the upper pane of System Views. Additional CNX-RMCLVs
are automatically assigned different Net ID numbers as they are added.

CNX-RMCLV “Device Settings” Window
NOTE: SIMPL Windows automatically changes Net ID values of a device added to a
program if a duplicate device or a device with the same default Net ID already exists in
the program. Always ensure that the hardware and software settings of the Net ID
match. For Net ID hardware setting details, refer to “Identity Code” on page 8.
CNX-RMCLV Symbol
Due to the extensive functionality of the CNXRMCLV, a single CNX-RMCLV
symbol in SIMPL Windows would be too complex. Instead, the CNX-RMCLV is
broken up into slots. In Program Manager, expand the CNX-RMCLV to view the
individual slots, then drag the desired symbol to Detail View. The slots and
corresponding symbols are described in subsequent sections.
Slot 1: Built-in 4 Port IR Card
This slot can contain up to four IR devices, selected from the Crestron or User IR
Databases. The actual symbols associated with this slot vary depending on the
devices in the system. As a sample, the illustration after this paragraph is for a
system that contains a Sony DVD player (model DVD-S7000). Typical of all IR
devices, it has a number of inputs to control its many functions. These inputs are
driven by a user interface (i.e., touchpanel or third party acceptable transmitter).
NOTE: Only one of the four IR ports can transmit IR codes at any given time.
20 • Room Solution Box with Local Video: CNXRMCLV
Operations Guide - DOC. 8161A
Crestron CNXRMCLV
Room Solution Box with Local Video
IR Device Symbol
Slot 2: IR Receiver
This symbol is only used in systems containing an acceptable third party transmitter
(Pronto/RC5/Universal IR Remote). To include a compatible third party transmitter
as part of the program, you must first drop a wireless receiver (CNXRMIRD) from
the Wireless Receivers | Wireless Receivers (IR) folder of the Device Library into
slot 2. Then, from the Wireless Remotes (IR) folder, drop the Pronto/RC5/Universal
IR Remote symbol onto the CNXRMIRD.
NOTE: You must use a Crestron IR receiver. Third party receivers are not supported
or compatible.
The symbol, shown below, consists of a number of outputs (presses), which
correspond to the actual buttons on the transmitter. Recall that when mapping the
buttons on the third party transmitter, a list was developed (refer to "Map the
Universal Remote" on page 16 for the actual procedure). That list needs to be
transcribed to this symbol. Match the button ID numbers from the list to the
numbered press. These outputs are the driving source for the IR devices.
Pronto/RC5/Universal Remote Symbol
Slot 3: Built-in 1 Port Digital Input
This symbol is only used to determine whether the monitor (i.e., television set) in the
room is on or off. A Crestron Room Current Sensor (CNXRMCS) or any other
Operations Guide – DOC. 8161A
Room Solution Box with Local Video: CNXRMCLV • 21
Room Solution Box with Local Video
Crestron CNXRMCLV
device that provides dry contact closure (no voltage) attaches to the two-pin port
(labeled SENS). The monitor plugs into the CNXRMCS. The symbol for this port,
shown after this paragraph, consists of a single output. When this <Current Sense>
output is high, the monitor plugged into the CNXRMCS is on. A low output
indicates that the monitor is off. This signal can be used as a feedback indicator
when connected to the user interface (i.e., touchpanel).
Digital Input Symbol
Slot 4: Built-in RS-232 Port
This port serves two purposes: an RS-232 port for two-way communication with
serial devices, and a console port for upgrading firmware. (Refer to “Firmware
Upgrade” on page 29.)
The symbol shown following this paragraph is only used when the CNX-RMCLV
communicates with a serial device. The bidirectional port supports baud rates up to
115K baud N81 and has RTS/CTS handshake signals. The tables below and on the
next page list the inputs/outputs and their functional description. Inputs and outputs
surrounded by brackets ([…]) are optional.

specified pace parameter.
RTS is an output from the program to the CNXRMCLV RS-232 port
when the state of the RTS line is set.
The CNXRMCLV RS-232 port is capable of receiving complex serial
data in the form of s erial data s trings on this input line.

The CNXRMCLV RS-232 port is capable of sending complex serial
data in the form of serial data strings on this output line.
NOTE: When present, the delimiter is appended to every string of text in the port
definition (both transmitted and received strings).
Slot 6: Audio/Video Matrix Control
The CNXRMCLV provides a built-in 8x8 matrix switcher, represented by the
Audio/Video Matrix Control symbol. The <Video-Out> analogs specify the video
source for an output as follows: the signal is set (typically via an Analog Initialize
symbol using decimal (D) format) to a value that corresponds to the video source.
The valid range of values for <Video-Out> is determined by whether the source is
remote or local, as shown in the following table.
Video Source
Valid Range Of Analog Values (Decimal)
Head End
1d – 4d (Selects PVID levels 1 to 4) [CAT5]
Local
5d – 8d
No Source
0d
Similarly, the <Audio-Out> input selects the audio source for the Audio output,
while the <Record-Out> input selects an audio source to be recorded. Again, the
valid range of values for these signals is determined by the location of the source, as
shown in the following table.
Audio Source
Valid Range Of Analog Values (Decimal)
Head End
4d [CAT5]
Local
1d – 3d
An analog value of 0 will not turn off the audio or record outputs. To shut off the
audio output, use the Audio Settings symbol to turn on the mute function (refer to
Slot 7: Audio Settings, on the next page). The record output cannot be turned off.
The <Video-Sense> digitals correspond to local video sources and are used for
synchronization and diagnostics. Whenever the module detects the presence of a
video signal on local channels 5 through 8, the corresponding <Video-Sense> digital
output will go high.

<Loudness-On> input activates the loudness function, while the <Mono-On> input
switches the audio setting from stereo to mono (left and right stereo channels are
mixed and supplied to each output connector).
Analogs
The <Volume> analog input sets the volume level from 0% to 100%. The other
analog inputs control bass, treble and balance settings relative to the 50% mark. That
is, a <Balance> input with a value of 50% results in even distribution of audio
between the left and right speakers (0% = full left; 100% = full right). Likewise, 50%
indicates a neutral level for <Treble> and <Bass>.

search for CNXRMCLV.ZIP that contains the example program, associated files and
a README.TXT file that describes the program.
Uploading and Upgrading
Assuming a PC is properly connected to the entire system, Crestron programming
software allows the programmer to upload programs and projects to the control
system and touchpanel after their development. However, there are times when the
files for the program and projects are compiled and not uploaded. Instead, compiled
files may be distributed from programmers to installers, from Crestron to dealers,
etc. Even firmware upgrades are available from the Crestron website as new features
are developed after product releases. In those instances, one has the option to upload
via the programming software or to upload and upgrade via the Crestron Viewport.

Crestron CNXRMCLV
NOTE: The Viewport utility accomplishes multiple system tasks, primarily via an
RS-232 or TCP/IP connection between the control system and a PC. It is used to
observe system processes, upload new operating systems and firmware, change
system and network parameters, and communicate with network device consoles and
touchpanels, among many other tasks. Viewport can also function as a terminal
emulator for generic file transfer. All of these functions are accessed through the
commands and options in the Viewport menus. Therefore, for its effectiveness as a
support and diagnostic tool, the Crestron Viewport may be preferred over
development tools when uploading programs and projects.
The following sections define how one would upload a SIMPL Windows program or
upgrade the firmware of the CNXRMCLV. However, before attempting to upload or
upgrade, it is necessary to establish communications.
Communication Settings
NOTE: For laptops and other PCs without a built-in RS-232 port, Crestron
recommends the use of PCMCIA cards, rather than USB-to-serial adapters. If a
USB-to-serial adapter must be used, Crestron has tested the following devices with
good results:
Belkin (large model) F5U103
I/O Gear GUC232A
Keyspan USA-19QW
Other models, even from the same manufacturer, may not yield the same results.
The procedure in this section provides details for RS-232 communication between
the PC and the control system. If TCP/IP communication is preferred, consult the
latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide (Doc. 6052) or the
respective Operations Guide for the control system. These documents are available
from the Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com). Refer to the figure below for a typical connection diagram
