I use the Aquatronica one, you can use any RS232 to USB converter.

Guys i had a USB to serial lead in my laptop bag, i installed the drivers and it recognised the serial to usb lead. But the software won't connect to the controller. I have the software set to automatically detect communication port.

Have you any suggestions on how i fix this?

thanks
Paul.

Hey Hawkey,

Try finding what port it is using then manually select the port in the software.

I reinstalled software from Aquatronica, then installed the drivers. Made sure it was set to automatically find port. And she connected up.

Having some trouble with trying to set function keys now! going to put a post on now
