So I've been trying to communicate through console with the rs media from a new computer and it just refuses to open up in a terminal emulator. I've be using the parallax usb convertor and I've had it work before on a windows XP machine. I'm right now using windows 7 and I've also tried using minicom on Ubuntu 11.10 (which I could use before but not now).
I might have accidentally sent 5 volt signals through the serial lines, but since the the boot up seems to work fine and the sd card boots up and everything, shouldn't the serial lines be functional? Would this prevent bluetooth connectivity?
