    Good Morning, I hope someone can help me please, here is my scenario.
    I have a small pc cube in the lounge, i can use my pronto to switch to the Pannasonic Plasma using the single button "PC" on my remote, to get back to Component input i have to cycle the input button, i know its only 3 presses but its a pain, i have heard i can control the plasma through the RS232 port, i have made a cable and tried using windows terminal but to no avail, i am trying to turn the plasma off as a test but cannot even get that to work, the code is as follows
    \x02POF\x03.

    Does anyone know the exact line of text i would type into windows hyperterminal for it to work or does anyone know of a better program.

    Has anyone done this before or something similar, i dont really care what program i use as long as i can run it before i shut windows down, ideally through a mapped key on my IR keyboard.

    Any and all help is much appreciated..
