    Does anyone know if an old NOKIA ondigital box with RS232 serial port(in manual states for pc or moden connection) will connect to PW6 Serial port and give a picture? Have not tryed as do not want to cause any damage to PW6.

    Sorry mate but that is a real newbie question!! Serial ports don't carry video information at all, they are for control, and sometimes software upgrades. Connecting 2 serial ports is highly unlikely to cause damage, and unless one of them is a crestron controller, highly unlikely to cause anything at all. The way to connect your ondigital is by scart, or by scart-js tech RGB to VGA converter - VGA port. This is the one beside the rs232, with 3 rows of pins, not 2.
