Hi folks, My brand new all singing all dancing laptop arrived today and to my amazement it does not have a serial port which of course is used for the Philips 940. After talking to the extremeley helpful chap at Lets Automate, he said try buying a USB to Serial convertor. He told me he has had reports that sometimes the convertor works and sometimes not. Anyone experienced this, does the convertor work ? if so what did you do? Help much appreciated!!
