   * Which ports are used? I first used 2 usb-serial adapters ([[http://www.dsdtech-global.com/2017/07/dsd-tech-usb-to-ttl-serial-converter.html|adapter1]],[[https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00K7YYFNM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1|adapter2]]) which only had ground/rx/tx pins. With these, I got _something_ ("y�J�"), and reactions to input, but that was not readable. I now use a usb-serial adapter which has DB9 female, a DB9 male/DB29 female adapter, that combination works.   * Which ports are used?
