    I've recently got an Arcan DV70 DVD player which has a serial interface on the back. I've read that this is used to control the player by the likes of AMX and Crestron.

    It occured to me that you should be able to do this via a PC - is this possible and is there any software available to do it?

    Alternatively, I'm an Analyst Programmer and know how to send info to a serial port in which case how do I find out what needs to be sent to a serial port to control the device.

    Any help gratefully received.
