    baud rate is 19200 .. tx connects to rx and rx to tx

    more on the serial later, if you dont have hyperterminal download realterm, will usually install as com10, plug dongle into usb before starting serial program.

    and this

    plug in dongle .. no need to attach meter yet.

    run terminal
    up the top left ..
    select COM10
    select 19200 as baud rate
    click connect .. (top left corner)

    as a test, connect a wire to the rx and the other end to the tx on the dongle.

    type something into the grey box right at the bottom of the screen
    it should appear in the text window in the middle .. this means the dongle is on port 10 and is working fine..

    attach meter .. to get comms it needs more power than what the serial data lines provide unfortunately.
    so attach a battery, one that has no flicker is best.

    press button on battery and you should see report text in the window.
    if you type flip into the grey window while ALSO pressing the button on the mod .. the text will flip over.
    to make sure power is stable before it attempts to reprogram itself, you need to hold the power on for another few seconds.

    19200, thanks.
    Turns out my serial-to-USB drivers need 50 other actions and chicken sacrifice to get going in Win8.

    I'll see if I can test it out later got a few win 8 units here I can test on.
    You're not plugging into a USB 3.0 port by any chance?
    There's many USB 3.0 controllers out there giving me grief at the moment particularly with virtual machines

    This double post earns a place for patience, it survived through 5 reboots, just waiting to exhibit 'seeking social interaction' behaviour.

    Turns out my chip doesn't play nicely with Win8.
    I'll have to buy an upgrade device.
