    Hi guys wondered if anyone here knows what wire is not needed on a 9 pin serial cable between the processor and the projector? i've run a cat5e cable which has 8 wires but the serial cable has 9 wires. just wondered if all 9 wires are used by the projector? many thanks, chris.

    I enquired about this not to long ago when i was thinking about buying the HD81LV, spoke to Richard from Optoma re-sales (nice guy) he asked one of his engineers for me and i was told it only used a couple of pin connections.
    Hope this helps.

    You just need 3x wires for RS-232 (serial).

    Does the processor and the projector both have males 9-pin connectors? If so then you can make up a straight-thru cable.

    Pin 2 = Rx
    Pin 3 = Tx
    Pin 5 = Gnd
